  1. 1. HINDALCO INDUSTRIES LIMITED INTRODUCTION Hindalco Industries Limited, the metals flagship company of the Aditya Birla Group, is an industry leader in aluminium and copper. A metals powerhouse with a consolidated turnover of Rs.600,128 million (US$ 15 billion), Hindalco is the world's largest aluminium rolling company and one of the biggest producers of primary aluminium in Asia. Its copper smelter is the world's largest custom smelter at a single location. Established in 1958, Hindalco commissioned its aluminium facility at Renukoot in Eastern U.P. in 1962. Later acquisitions and mergers, with Indal, Birla Copper and the Nifty and Mt.Gordon copper mines in Australia, strengthened the company's position in value-added alumina, aluminium and copper products, with vertical integration through access to captive copper concentrates. In 2007, the acquisition of Novelis Inc. a world leader in aluminium rolling and can recycling, marked a significant milestone in the history of the aluminium industry in India. With Novelis under its fold Hindalco ranks among the global top five aluminium majors, as an integrated producer with low cost alumina and aluminium facilities combined with high- end rolling capabilities and a global footprint in 12 countries outside India. Its combined turnover of US$ 15 billion, places it in the Fortune 500 league. 13

Birla Nifty's copper cathode capacity is 25,000 tpa. Open pit mining was completed in 2006. During FY2008, Nifty produced 5,112 tonnes of copper cathode. A copper sulphide deposit is located at the lower levels of the Nifty open pit mine and an underground mine and concentrator have been developed to mine and process ore from this deposit. The Nifty Sulphide Operation, commenced ore production from stoping in December 2005 and concentrate production in March 2006. During FY2008, Nifty produced 53,397 tonnes of copper in concentrate.
  6. 6. HINDALCO INDUSTRIES LIMITED 17 HINDALCO PRODUCES: Hindalco produces high purity ingots through the smelting process. Alloy ingots of various grades are also produced mainly used for production of castings in Auto Industry as well as electrical applications.

Packing
  8. 8. HINDALCO INDUSTRIES LIMITED The coils are packed in eye-to-sky or eye- to-wall position, wrapped in HDPE and hardboard, strapped with hoop iron and placed on wooden pallets. Moisture protection is provided by silica gel packets. 19 TALOJA PLANT Taluka : Panvel. M.I.D.C. Area. The Taloja plant of Hindalco produces Aluminium plates and aluminium steel. Melting of aluminium scrap is also done here. Aluminium melts at 650°-700°C. There are three different sections in which the plant is divided. 1) The recycling plant 2) The remelting plant 3) The main plant. Production of aluminium plates and aluminum steel is done in these sections. Hindalco is the largest recycler of aluminium.
  9. 9. HINDALCO INDUSTRIES LIMITED Aluminium is used in making pressure cookers, checker plates ,roofing sheet, roll bond sheet, fan blade, lamp shed etc. The total area of the plant is 100 acres. The number of labourers in this plant are more than 600. 20 MANUFACTURING PROCESS Aluminium scrap is melted in recycling plant. Aluminium Melts at 650°-700°C. A furnace is used to melt the aluminium. The capacity of the recycling plant is 30 tonnes. It is the Largest recycler of aluminium. The machinery used for melting is Imported from Japan and U.S.A. After the melting process is over, the removal of Bauxite layer and Oxide layer is done by a machine called scalper. Then the incut is heated at the temperature of 500° C in the soaking pit. Rolling of the aluminium is done here. The cycle time taken in the soaking pit is ten hours per sheet. Later it is sent to Hot Mill. Aluminium foil is formed here. The minimum output of the hot mill is 8 mm. 60 – 65 sheets are formed per day. The temperature of the aluminium foil is 350°C. after manufacturing.
  10. 10. HINDALCO INDUSTRIES LIMITED Soon after the foils are formed, they are bought in Cold Mill. The sheets are made thin here.Fans and Spray are used in coolants.The sheets are made thin and then rolled.The thickness then is 1mm. Then the foils are sent to the Davy Mill.The output of Cold Mill is the input for Davy mill . Minimum 0.16 mm. thick foils are formed here. The cycle time per foil is ten minutes. 21 The foils are then made flexible in a machine called as tension leveller. Litho products are used in tension leveller to bring flexibility in the sheets. The cycle time in this machinery is 30 minutes. The output of tension leveller is the finished product. The sheets are then cut as per customer requirements. The cycle time in this process is 45 minutes per foil.
  11. 11. HINDALCO INDUSTRIES LIMITED 22 CONCLUSION Recognised as one of Asia's largest producers of primary aluminium , Hindalco's foil packaging solutions strive to serve customers within and beyond the national frontiers.
