  1. 1. An organizational study report of Rubco Huat Woods Pvt Ltd.INTRODUCTION Kerala state Rubber Co-operative Ltd. (Rubco) has, in a short span, redefined the way the co-operative sector functions and set the pace for the co-operative movement in Kerala today. Rubco was set up in the year 1997 with the objective of effectively utilizing the abundant rubber resources of kerala. Today, from a single unit company, Rubco has grown into a Rs.280 crore conglomerate with well-diversified operations and a market presence extending beyond the boundaries of Kerala. Rubco manufactures and markets a variety of products from footwear to furniture, from mattresses to virgin coconut oil. Rubco has also entered into technological alliances with world leaders in the respective fields, sourcing from them the latest in technology. Substantial investments in modern manufacturing facilities, coupled with well – organized marketing activities, have seen Rubco’s products earn a reputation for quality, as also significant market shares. Led by a professional management team and ably supported by a committed workforce, Rubco is now poised to enter a high growth phase, with several new initiatives that will take the Group on a path of expansion and diversification. Rubco is started for promote the rubber plantation in kerala. Rubber plantation in India is large. Our country is the one of the largest national rubber producers in the world, now it occupies the fourth most position in the production of natural rubber. Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia occupy the first, second and third position respectively, accounting for more than 9% of the global output. India has rank 5th in terms of acre age, 4th in terms of production and first in terms of productivity in the world. The rubber plantation sector in the country is dominated by small holdings, almost 10 lakhs in number, 88% of the area and production come from small holdings. Rubber plantation provides raw material for the product manufacturing industry. Rubber cultivation in India has been traditional confined to the hinder lands of south west cost mainly the kerala state and Kanyakumari district of Tamilnadu. The nontraditional regions cultivating runner includes costal Karnataka, Goa, and Konkan region of Maharashtra, costal Andrapradesh, Orissa , the North eastern states and Andaman niccobar islands.

Being tree crops it has tremendous potential in eco-restoration. Rubber plantations also provide a variety if auxiliary product like honey, seed oil, rubber wood and scope for rearing honey bees. Commercial cultivation of rubber in India was started in 1902. The state of kerala adjoins Kanyakumari district of Tamilnadu and traditional and major rubber growing area of the country. It is also grows in Tripura, Assam, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Manipura and Goa over 5.71 lakhs hector of area spread; over 15 states and one of the union territory of the country is under rubber plantation. The rubber plantation sector in India is dominated by small holdings almost 10 lakh in number, covering 88% of total area; about 71 lakh of people derive their employment from the plantation sector directly or indirectly. The main purpose of rubber plantation is the production of latex which is the main raw material for all rubber product manufacturing industries. In India, 72.2% f the product is processed as ribbed smoked sheet (RSS). Block rubber, concentrated latex, crepe rubber and other account for 9.8%, 10.5% and 7.77% respectively. A rubber tree with a useful economic life span of 23-30 years will yield high production latex. In this background, the Kerala state rubber co- operative Ltd., otherwise known as rubco, purpose to launch a comprehensive scheme to interact with the farmer directly with the processing and other support facilities so that small and marginal farmers can avoid the cumbersome process of sheet making in their small holding. Since small holdings are only between 0.5 to 2 Ha, generally, and do not have infrastructure facilities, it is very difficult for them to make quality sheets. In the international market the quality of the sheet are very important. For this purpose rubco also started a marketing plan with the farmers for making the sheets with international quality.

  17. 17. An organizational study report of Rubco Huat Woods Pvt Ltd. nature of production process nature of operationFURNITURE PRODUCTION Boiler and saw mill The process begins from logyard. logyard is a place in which logs are unloading for the furniture production, Rubco furniture are making only by using rubber woods. If any defects are found any unloaded rubber wood, the logs will be send back. There are lots of procedures for checking the useful log. The quality department will check each and every log. The second step is to saw the log for the manufacturing of furniture. The logs cut in to particular length and width after that the log will check again for the usefulness. if any defect found it will not use further for manufacturing purpose. The pieces of wood have a particular order for arranging and keeping. it will keep at a certain quantity of level process continue and keeps the woods the prescribed manner. The next process is store the material in impregnation plant. The materials are processing inside the impregnation plant in to add extra strong and durability for woods. The replaced woods from the impregnation plant in keeping in KLIN DRYING room for reducing the water content in the processed wood. The HOT OIL is sprayed to the room from the boiler. It is used to heat the wood. A particular type of fan is using for maintaining the temperature level in all area of the room. The woods are keeping twelve days in the room. E. G. P (edge glued panel) There are different types of process in E G P. they are jump saw top and bottom plainer multiple rip saw sorting finger joining KRUPANIDHI DEGREE COLLEGE Page 17
  18. 18. An organizational study report of Rubco Huat Woods Pvt Ltd. molding composing end cutting sanding finishing The wood panel boards are creating in this section by using wood pieces. The furniture manufacturing unit uses only these types of panels. There is no large size wood piece. Each and every log is cutting in to small pieces. There are lots of processes involved in this section. Planning area It is area in which the wood processes are planning in to two sides. This is the first process in this section. Wood pieces are taken for joining purpose after keeping wood in klin drying room for particular period of time. The wood pieces will to having plain or smooth surfaces. So for the manufacturing purpose it must plain the surface of all wood pieces. Machine name: top and bottom plainer This area is also used for re work of defected material. Multiple rip saw This process is also similar to planning but in the process the other two sides are planning. After this process the wood pieces will have smooth surface in all four sides. After top and bottom planning and multiple rip saw, a new colour or design is appearing on the surface of wood pieces. It may be plain surface, line surface or flower type. Finger joining For the manufacturing of the furniture the woods must have a certain level of length and width. So it is important that the wood pieces must join together. So a special type of process for the joining the wood pieces is involved, it is called finger joining. Two machines are using together for this purpose. One is male part and other is female part. First machine cuts the edge of the wood in the teeth shape but the second one cut and attaches the glue to the edge. After that the wood pieces are passes horizontally through the machine and pieces are automatically joins. A particular length is fixing in the machine and it KRUPANIDHI DEGREE COLLEGE Page 18

The minimum length we can adjust in the machine is 15×39 and maximum 45×78 Molding There are two types of machine used for molding purpose. 7 head molder and 5 head molder. This is used for the molding of two sides. Composing This is an important in EGP. It is the process of joining the finger joint wood pieces in a panel format. In this process edge of the wood pieces will not cut. The finger joined wood pieces are keeping in the composing machine by using the glue in the rip side. Cutting The length of the wood pieces may vary in small difference. So we have to cut the end of panels for getting correct shape. Sanding The wood panels are again sanding by using special type of machine which will have 3 sanding paper inside. It gives a smooth and plain surface. Finishing This is the last section of EGP .some defects or whole may appear in between the production process.
