PPRM helps Maithan Steel to set up new Plant with Higher Capacity.

17 Dec, 2021

Maithan Steel is a West Bengal-based steel manufacturer with its old manufacturing plant having a 200,000 TPA capacity which was enhanced after revamping the existing plant by PPRM.

Now Maithan Steel again choose us to commission their new plant with more operational capacity and add all the necessitated crucial equipment for goal fulfillment. PPRM delved deeper into the requirements and weaved precise and optimized solutions.

Here’s what we delivered to our client and how it helped them:

Housingless Mill Stand with Unmatched Features

The first piece of equipment that PPRM supplied to Maithan Steel was the Housingless mill stand. As the mill is designed with 16 continuous stands, it required a trimmed stress path to grant it a higher mill bearing life. Housingless stand made the perfect choice in this case. Why?

 Let’s see:

  • The intelligent placement of roll changing and roll gap setting has made the process speedy in our delivered stands.
  • The unmatched rigidity of these stands comes from the quality-oriented mill screws, placed at an appropriate distance. Because of this rigidity, the stand is capable to trim down roll jumping, granting enhanced stock size control.
  • The exceptional machining and finishing grant enhanced operability while reducing maintenance expenses. The unique adjustable rest bar designs grants guarantee for better fixed rolling axis, quick adjustment, and less maintenance.
  • There is an air oil lubrication provision and spindle support bearings make our housingless mill support stand out against the crowd. As these stands feature common take off points for air-oil, water, and hydraulics, operations are seamless.

Crank Type Dividing Shear

Using the crank type diving shear, the plant is able to cut a TMT bar of Ø20-Ø32mm size and can attain a maximum speed of 6m/s.

The Perks Enjoyed

As each equipment delivery was need-specific, the newly-commissioned plant of Maithan Steel is more productive. The organization could raise its annual production from 200,000 TPA to 500,000 with this installation. In the first 20 days of installation, a contractual speed of Ø8mm @ 28mps was achieved. Considerable maintenance expenses were reduced and the client experienced higher ROI.
