Merchant Mill rolls out TMT Bars from smaller billets

Bhilai, Jun 09: SAIL-Bhilai Steel Plant’s Merchant Mill has for the first time used billets from Steel Melting Shop 3 to roll out EQR 500 D grade TMT Bars in 40 mm size to fulfill order from customer M/s Megha Engineering for use in a project of critical importance located in Patna. Merchant Mill had earlier been rolling out TMT Bars and other light structural products with input billets from the SMS 1-BBM route. These billets that are of 110 x 110 size are no longer available to Merchant Mill.
In order to fulfill the customer order, Merchant Mill decided to roll out the required grade and size of TMT bars from billets of 105 x 105 size for the first time. The Merchant Mill team comprising of RG Dalal, GM, Sushil Hariramani, GM, Nagendra Kumar, DGM and Vinay Kumar, AGM under the leadership of GM I/c Ajay Bedi accepted the challenge, planned and executed the rolling scheme to successfully roll out TMT 40 mm from 105 x 105 size billets supplied by SMS 3. About 2000 Tonnes of this grade and size of TMT Bars were produced by Merchant Mill in the first week of June 2020.
