Coil packing line to Bhushan Steel Ltd.
Bhushan Steel Ltd. and Pesmel have signed a contract for an automated coil packing line to Bhushan’s steel plant in Orissa, India. The packing line will be delivered in summer 2014.
A coil packing line packs cold rolled galvanized and color coated coils for export purposes. The line includes inspection, several wrapping and strapping stations, labeling, and palletizing functions. The coils are packed with four different materials to preserve premium product quality all the way to end customers. The packing line includes a through-eye wrapping system, which gives excellent protection against humidity.
Another highlight of the packing line is automated body wrapping and edge protection machines. A quarter of the material costs can be saved using automated machines, as the system optimizes the material usage to each coil individually. The edge protection machine is fully automatic with the latest development technology.
Bhushan Steel Ltd. has three manufacturing units in India. Pesmel’s packing line will be delivered to their Meramandali unit in Orissa. The Meramandali unit has a planned capacity of 2.3 MTPA. Overall, Bhushan is India’s third-largest secondary steel producer with an existing steel production capacity of 2 million tons per annum.
