Pilot experimental facilities include pilot plant for cored wire performance evaluation, open air melting and vacuum induction furnace, casting facilities with league equipment’s for testing.
Devise ways to make a valuable contribution towards a more sustainable society by making the most efficient use of raw materials, simultaneously reducing cost includes the development of new production process to reduce number of production steps or enhance the product performance thus to improve the utilization of element of concern. and minimize energy consumption.
Beneficial in process stages such as spheriodiser casting, casting in water cooled mould and crushing, use of unidirectional stirring induction furnace for enhanced heat utilization and precise stirring during aluminum master alloy production.
Experimental facilities for product research includes pilot cored wire feeders for steel treatment, product design and production facility. Further, Minex has a wide range of equipment, for material characteristics, applying technique for optical microscopy and spectrometric techniques.
Investigating how the properties and behaviour of products such as spheriodiser, inoculants, aluminum master alloys, and cored wires, manufactured at Minex can be best adopted to suit individual market / customer needs.
Major fields of expertise include metallurgical research, alloy development, product design and control of product application at customers.
Our team, look at how material behaves when in use in order to optimize down steam production process, determine the performance of end product.
Developing novel metal-based application is another interesting area of work, for example making an innovative new concept of radiation shielding alloy that can give a cost effective and environmental friendly solution to radiation shielding application.
Explore support areas optimizing down gauging products, optimizing process parameters and helping resolve quality issues, helping customers to get most out of Minex products.
