Pune: The Essar Steel Processing & Distribution Facility (ESPD) at Bahdurgarh (NCR) and Pune have recently added  slitting lines for thicker HR steel coils. With the commissioning of these facilities, Essar Steel will enhance its steel processing capacity at each of these centres to 400,000 tonnes per annum.

Targeted at meeting the needs of the fast-growing auto and construction sector in the region, the HR Slitter facility will be complimented by Narrow Cut-to-length lines, which will provide high speed, high quality blanking of HR coils in the sizes desired by customers.

"The capacity expansion is in line with the emerging customer requirement. The auto segment is a very important market for us and this new line at our facility will give us a strong competitive advantage over others in the rapidly expanding auto segment of these regions," said Vikram Amin, Executive Director (Sales & Marketing) Essar Steel.

These slitters have the capacity to process 100,000 tonnes of HR Coil per annum. The newly installed HR Slitter will process coils up to 12 mm thick and 2,000-mm wide into strips of desired widths down to 50 mm.

HR Steel with Tensile strength of 750 MPa and thickness of 12 mm can be processed at a speed of 40 meters per minute, while 1.2 mm thick coils can be processed at as high speed as 120 meters per minute.
