Yeah, but was it the guy who operates that cool as grabber arm, or was it the guy who left that boiling vat of metal there? It's clearly sitting on that line that shows the path of the claw.

Maybe the claw was supposed to be higher or something.

also pretty good chance that boiling vat of metal gets moved around via that grabber arm, so either this is a shift change, they have more then one arm on that track( wild guess its not really a track but best work i have at this time), or one guy by him self ****** up big time.

Obviously somebody ****** up bad, I mean, at the start you can see some guy walking around in that area, so there is a major chance somebody was seriously injured or killed, and then all the metal cooling over the work area would be a serious problem.

Does anyone know where this is from? All I could find are other reposts.

As I recall, it was a metal casting operation in Wisconsin. Can't find the story or video, but the cauldron was left there momentarily by a different ceiling track operator while he moved something else out of the way. The accident could have been avoided, but the operator moving the large metal blocks was operating with only one spotter, not two as per regulations, and the one spotter was on the wrong side to see the cauldron. Bad moves all around from everyone involved. Don't know if anyone got fired though.

I don't know- pretty sure that they company just spend an assload of money teaching the guy responsible not to do it again. Get somebody else and you may have to teach them too, but the guy who originally did it is going to remember.

Detroit manufacturing facilities shut down because the demand for automobiles outgrew the facilities, and major manufacturers bought large plots of land outside of the city to expand. The corporate headquarters remained in downtown Detroit, but the major manufacturing facilities are in the surrounding cities and counties.

How... How would a company clean up after that?

Do they just... like... build a new plant and go elsewhere? Completely demolish and rebuild that section of the plant?
How do you remove that much spilled metal?

I know I sound like an idiot, but I'm legitimately curious if anybody has the proper knowledge.

It's a legit question. Depending on the costs, they might just abandon the plant. However if clean up is an option they'd cut up all the material they could and ship it out. It'd take SUCH a long time

They would wait until its hardened and break it up, its actually possible. And those who work at a melting factory will agree it happens occasionally in smaller scale(when one of the ovens is teared from inside).

Is there no safety in place to prevent something like that from happening?

Yes there are procedures that should be in place and followed, but with most "hard" industries, like coal mining and steel works, they are not followed; and that suits the company just fine as it would cost money to make their site safe. The crane driver should not have been rushing but further to that it should not have been so easy to make a **** up which could kill so easily.

First thing that came to my mind.

Either the cauldron was misplaced, then it was real bad work done by the workers and foremen and bad controlling as well.

Or it was misconstructed, which makes it extremely bad work by the planning engineers and architects...

There should be redundant safety-measures to prevent stuff like that

well yeah that could be the melting point. but getting the metal clean isnt going to be very effective at that temperature. and also it needs to be melted for some while and not harden up instantly

The electrolysis and purification of aluminium is done just under 1000°C, so 2000°C is a bit overkill.

Iron maybe? It has melting point 1538°C so around 2k is just about right
