Pesmel Automatic Coil Packing system to Hindalco Industries

Hindalco Industries Limited has ordered an automated coil packing line from Pesmel. The system will be delivered to company’s aluminium facility in Hirakud, India.

Hindalco Industries Limited is one of the world’s and Asia’s largest aluminium and copper producers, which has a global footprint in 13 countries. The new packing line for aluminium coils is a second delivery as the first coil packing line was delivered in 2006. This system will be delivered at the end of year 2012.

Hindalco incidentally was our initial customer in the metal division for packing lines during 2006 in India.” recalls Jagannathan Rajagopalan, Managing Director of Pesmel, South Asia.

The unique advantage of this packing line, besides the automation, is the flexibility. Both coils with eye vertical and eye horizontal position are handled in one set up, packed, palletized and strapped in the same line according to multiple packing codes.

“Automated packing lines require good system know how, because the line includes many individual machines that need to function in sequence and harmony, simultaneously. With a successful first delivery we convinced Hindalco from our competence in automated packing systems.” adds Pesmel’s General Manager Juha Suksi.
