Overview Of The Downstream Industry Of The Indian Aluminum Industry

- Feb 13, 2019-

Hindus Aluminium is India's largest flat rolled aluminum product (FRPS) company and the second largest aluminum extrusion company, second only to Jindal Aluminium Ltd. In February 2017, Hindus Aluminium Corporation acquired $6 billion (including $2.4 billion in debt) to acquire Novelis, making it the world's largest flat rolled aluminum product company, but the Burr Group It is not eager to integrate the aluminum business of the two companies. It is produced and operated by Hindustan Aluminum Company in India, and is still produced, managed and marketed in the name of Nobelis Aluminum Company in other countries and regions of the world. And the factory is technically remodeled and expanded, but the group company is responsible for the flow and operation of funds. Xingdustan Aluminum has six aluminum processing companies in India that produce thin sheets, aluminum foil and extruded materials.

Luneng Khun Aluminium Factory in Uttar Pradesh. The Rennukort Aluminium Plant is a comprehensive aluminium company that includes bauxite mining, alumina, electrolytic aluminum, strip rolling, extrusions, etc., all located in the Hinduco Aluminum Industrial Park (Hindalco Park). Covering an area of more than 1,000 acres, the production capacity of flat rolled aluminum products is 90,000 tons/year, and the capacity of extruded materials is 43,000 tons/year. Except for the Hilakud rolling mill, the Ranukote rolling mill has been the company's flat rolling. Aluminum products company. The Rennukte Rolling Mill has a Bliss twin-roller two-roll hot rolling mill with a roll width of 1600 mm and a maximum width of 1425 mm for thick plates. There is also a Bress cold roll mill. The width of the roll surface is 1575mm, the width of the strip can be max 1420mm, a 1880mm 4 roll cold rolling mill of Davy Company, the max width of the strip can be 1600mm; there is a wafer cutting machine. The Renukot extrusion plant has eight extruders, seven of which are standard, 12.5 MN to 50 MN, and the other is a Holton continuous extruder (Conform). Standard extruders can be used to extrude 2, 5 and 7 series alloys for the manufacture of engineering, transportation, aerospace and defense military equipment. The general situation of the Indian large extrusion plant is shown in Table 2.

Audi Shahira Kurd Aluminium Company (rolling mill). Syracuse Aluminium was originally an electrolytic aluminum plant of Indal, which was acquired by Hindu Aluminium in 1998. After the closure of the Rogerstone rolling mill in Wales in 2009, the hot rolling mill was moved to the Syracuse rolling mill. The hot rolling line was modernized by SMS. It was put into production in 2013. The capacity is 500,000 tons / year. The company has one (1+3) hot rolling line, the roughing mill is four-roll reversible Davy United (Davy United), the roll width is 3650mm, and the 4-roll 3-stand hot rolling line is Robertson. Designed and manufactured, the width of the roll surface is 2440mm, and the width of the rollable strip is 2160mm. A new 4-roller irreversible cold rolling mill was introduced from Achenbach and started production in 2014 with a production capacity of 115,000 tons/year. This cold rolling mill has a roll surface width of 2,300 mm and a strip width of 2,100 mm.

After the acquisition of Novelis Aluminium Company, Hindustan intends to use its management and technical experience to develop aluminum alloy strips for beer cans in India, and then turn to the market due to the sluggish market. Factory) Development of general engineering and construction sheet, thin foil, heat-dissipating fin (Fin) and packaging foil with thickness ≥160μm, production capacity of Hirakud rolling mill>90,000 tons/year/a.

Taloja Mumbai. Tyrolaga Aluminium was founded in 1971. It has a 2150mm 2-roll reversing hot rolling mill from Ashenbach and a 1625mm 4-roll reversing cold rolling mill from Canron. It is a adjacent kava ( The Kalwa) foil factory offers strips; there is also a 1425mm 4-roll reversing cold rolling mill from Davy McKee, which was put into production in 1982 for the production of PS, CTP base strips and packaging thick foils. Two cold rolling mills were fitted with tension levelers from 1999 to 2000, and were modernized in 2017. They were used to roll PS and CTP base strips. The plant and Novelis The company's bridgnorth (UK) rolling mill is closely related.

The rolling mill in Belur, West Bengal. The Belur rolling mill was built in 1938. The oldest aluminum processing plant of Xingdusin Aluminum Co., Ltd. has one set of 1400mm 2 roll reversing hot rolling mill from Ashenbacher, and four rolls of reversible cold rolling of 1420mm and 1320mm. There is one machine and one calender. The cold rolling mill is used to roll PC, CTP base strips and aluminum foil strips, as well as thicker strips. The plant is also good at producing heat-treated reinforced alloy sheet strips.

Nagpur Moda Rolling Mill. The Moda Rolling Mill was established in 1992 as part of Pennar Aluminium, specializing in the production of conductors; in 1994, two Chinese continuous casting mills and one cold rolling mill were put into production, and did not achieve good results. The economic benefits, so the company began to be hosted by the Industrial and Financial Restructuring Agency (BIFR) in 1998, becoming a "sick" unit. During the period from 1998 to 2005, the plant was used as a base for commissioning processing of the Bankee Group, producing thin sheets for stamping blanks.

In 2006, Xingdusin Aluminum Company acquired the strip rolling section of Moda Rolling Mill, which is mainly equipped with: 2 Mechatherm tilting smelting furnaces with a capacity of 20t; 2 Puji Engineering Company ( Pechiney-Scal) two-roll continuous 3C casting mill; one 4-roll reversible 1900mm cold rolling mill. As part of the Ajanta Project of the Hindu Aluminium Company, the Moda Rolling Mill was reorganized and placed under the management of Novelis Foil and Technical Products Division, from the British Bridgnorth Foil The factory transferred the idle foil rolling mill. In 2011, it was modernized by SMS. After this expansion and expansion, the Moda Rolling Mill has: 18 sets of a 4-roll mill in the 1850mm (with a roll width of 1680mm) from Axbach (a rolling speed of 1225m/min); and a Loewy Robertson company. The 4-roll 1830mm aluminum foil finishing mill has a roll width of 1650mm, a max rolling speed of 1500m/min, and a foil tape min thickness of 0.0064mm.

In 2012, Hindustan Aluminum Co., Ltd. closed the Kalwa aluminum foil factory, and some of its equipment was moved to the Moda rolling mill. One of them was coated with a plastic film on a 12μm aluminum foil. The speed of the film was 100m. /min, is the largest liner machine in India. In 2014, the Silvassa aluminum foil factory was closed. The equipment of the Moda rolling mill was further enriched. Now it has become the most advanced and largest aluminum foil factory in India.

Corrala Alupram Extrusion Factory. The Alupram Extrusion Plant is located in Kerala and was built in 1941. It was originally an electrolytic aluminum plant of the Indian Aluminum Corporation, with a production capacity of only 25,000 tons/year and then expanded to 13,000 tons/year. In 1955, it was oriented to an extrusion plant. In 1961, a Farrel-Stillman 33MN extruder was put into operation, mainly used for extrusion of construction, transportation and engineering industrial profiles; The production capacity of pressed materials has been expanded to 12,000 tons/year. Later, due to the increase in electricity prices, aluminum electrolysis was difficult to sustain. It was discontinued in 2003, and the extruded round ingots were supplied by Lun Lucott.
