JSPL is equipped with India's first state-of-the-art plate mill that started producing plates and coils of 5 meters and 3 metres width, respectively, for the first time in the private sector.
JSPL Plate cum Coil Mill (Steckle Mill) of 1 MTPA capacity located at Raigarh, Chattisgarh produces plates ranging from 8 mm to 120 mm in thickness in widths of 1500 mm to 3500 mm and Coils in thickness range of 8 mm to 25 mm in widths of 1500 mm to 2500 mm.
The mill is equipped with walking beam type of reheating furnace where slabs are re-heated at a temperature of 1,250 degrees Celsius and rolled in a mill with 2 hi-reversing type roughing stand and a 4 hi-reversing type finishing stand. To ensure excellent surface quality, high pressure de-scalers are provided at the entry and exit points.
An auto level 2 width and thickness controlling system coupled with heavy leveller assures close dimensional tolerances and an increased level of flatness control. Right from the slab charging and plate production to the conclusive stage, fully equipped inspection facilities are in place.
The Plate mill at Angul, Odisha of 1.5 MT capacity produces plates in the thickness range of 5-150 mm with a width of up to 5000 mm. The mill is equipped with latest equipment and technology like MULPIC cooling, online ultrasonic testing, trimming shear, slitting unit to produce plates of high strength and excellent surface finish.
JSPL Plates & Coils are of premium quality in terms of dimensional adherence and internal soundness owing to its clean raw material, sound steel refining facilities and an efficient rolling mill. JSPL produces plates and coils complying to IS 2062 specifications upto E450 grades besides a wide range of international standards and steel grades as per EN, DIN, JIS, ASTM, etc. The mill is approved by various societies such as LRS, DNV, ABS, , and GL for shipbuilding steel, besides, having accreditions such as:
