Hurricane Sandy Drawbridge Repairs
Nearly five years after Hurricane Sandy, cities along the eastern seaboard continue to discover—and repair—the damage inflicted on their infrastructure by the Category 3 storm. Recently, Magnetek, Inc. had the opportunity to help mend some of the long-term damage the hurricane caused by refurbishing and rebuilding 16 storm-damaged 300M Mill Duty AC Thruster Shoe Brakes.

Miller Park Retractable Roof Braking System
Milwaukee's one-of-a-kind ballpark features traditional architecture with a unique fan-shaped retractable roof. Ten bogies open and close the roof. These bogies run on a curved rail system. Although Miller Park's retractable roof is unique and provides protection from the elements, it has required design changes over the years to improve performance. In 2007, the park owners began a performance redesign that included upgrading the roof panels' braking system.
