The article reports on Scotchman Industries Inc., in Philip SD, celebrating 40 years of manufacturing of its Hydraulic Ironworker line. Arthur Kroetch, founder of the company, bought the patent for the original ironworker from its inventor back in 1967. The machine uses hydraulic pressure to cut or punch steel instead of sawing or drilling, to accomplish the same results in a fraction of the time for other methods.
