Bilston Steelworks Oin The Black Country West Midlands in the 1978. When tapping was complete the ladle of steel was taken by an overhead crane to the adjacent casting bay. Here the ladle of steel was positioned above a train of empty ingots moulds. The moulds were filled with molten steel to form ingots. This process was called Teeming and was controlled by workers situated on a platform running the whole length of the casting bay.
