The new product is expected to add around Rs. 100 crore to the annual revenue of the company.

The idea of such manufacturing devise, better known as ECCM (Electrotherm’s Continuous Casting Machine) was conceived a few years back and its launch was much awaited by the entire ingot manufacturing industry in India. The company plans to organize a series of seminars on the benefits of this machine in all the key steelmaking hubs in the country simultaneously with the launch and the first one was organized in the steel township of Mandi Gobindgarh and Ludhiana.

Speaking about it, Mr. Suneel Kulkarni, President, E&P Division, Electrotherm (India) Ltd, said, “We have been all along concerned about the hassles of casting ingots through mould and all related problems.

These casters are a revolutionary product that have been designed in such a way that they can be adopted by and installed in any ingot making unit and these ingot makers can comfortably produce billets cheaper than ingots and compete in the local market. “Our product addresses the need of the industry because it fulfills all the requirements. They come with a modular design that reduces the civil and installation cost, they can be installed in any existing plant, they consume less space and above all, one can produce the billet cheaper than the ingot,” Mr Kulkarni added.
