This Hardox truck has been compacting cardboard for Reclaim for the last seven years. After a quick blast and a fresh coat of paint, it still looks good as new! It was built by 'Hardox In My Body' member Midwest

Innovative side shrouds for a cat 980M

BDC Engineering designed this innovative and cost effective solution for side shrouds on Winstone Aggregates Cat 980M. We cut these parts from 60mm Hardox 450 in one process, using our Kinetic K5000 plasma cutting and bevelling machine. We’re thrilled with how they came out!

Team Building done right
Shooting_Test_01.jpg

Our design team wanted to put our steel to the test. Naturally, they went to a shooting range and shot .308, 5.56mm and 0.22 calibre rounds at both 450 & Grade 350 from 50 meters. The results speak for themselves.
