Take A Closer Look At How We Solved Specific Customer Needs


Customer: Farm equipment supplier

Industry: Hydraulic and farm equipment
Customer Problem: Company was having issues with driveline yokes — sand inclusions occurred during machining, and the product life was just one week.

Customer: A major oil field equipment manufacturer

Industry: Oil and Gas
Customer Problem: Needed the right solution for a new generation of ram blowout preventers (BOP). Were considering both steel forgings and steel castings. Cost and production time were major considerations.
Pacific Steel Solution: Pacific Steel worked with the customer to design and develop a full spectrum of castings for major components of customer’s BOP's. Parts included bodies, doors, rams, and cylinder heads. Components were delivered on a very aggressive time line and met the customer budget expectation.
