The Rolling Division
The division manufactures hot-rolled flats, bars, rounds, angles and more, for both market sales as well as for captive self-consumption, wherein the forging division will proceed to fabricate finished, down-stream products.
In 2007, this tranche of our facility was modernized by installing a new Heavy 355 mm (14”) mill with five stands. The mill is driven by a 1000 Horse-Power Motor, which virtually doubled the plant’s productive capacity from its former strength. The company also undertook an agreement with Tata Steel Limited in Jamshedpur, wherein we supply their processing agent with about 12,000 metric tonnes annually.
Apart from that, the mill also rolls out approximately 17,500 metric tonnes for captive production in forging, which is done internally, and for sale in the local market. The Division Production for the year (ending 31-3-2012) was gauged at 13,400 metric tonnes.
