Reduction in ruffledness in Usha Martin Ltd. Ranchi



Manufacturing industry is the backbone of economy of nation. Due to globalization there is stiff competitions in the industry for producing the quality products with reduce cost and increase quality level. As USHA MARTIN is the manufacturing company of wire and wire rope, therefore number of manufacturing process occurs like as pickling, patenting, galvanizing, ,wire drawing ,stranding. During the pickling process the cleaning and phosphate coating process occurs on the rod. During the patenting and galvanizing process heat treatment and zinc coating process occurs. During the wire drawing process first fall out occurs. Wire breakage and ruffledness these two are the major reason of first fall out. Wire breakage is simple breaking of wire during the wire drawing process when machine is running. Ruffledness is non uniform layering of wire in the spool or bobbin. These two play major role in reduction in production, scrap and financial loss of company. On average the loss due to ruffledness is 92 bobbins per month this effect loss due to production is 4mt/month and scrapes generation is 0.8mt/month in wire mill and stranding. The total average loss of the company is approximately 2 lacks per month. Due to Ruffledness the quality of product is low. In this chapter we will discuss the cause of Ruffledness and how to remove the Ruffledness.
