Customization is at the core of all our product development and our global technology excellence ensures the best in class offerings for the valued customers. The company’s continuous growth and enhanced capabilities stand testimony of the ceaseless drive for excellence. JSPL products are as follows:

RAILS

Keeping in view the importance of significantly growing rail sector in India and the nearby markets, JSPL has pioneered manufacturing of 121-meter long track rails and a facility to factory weld these rails in welded lengths of up to 480 meter. The world’s longest track rails are a testimony to JSPL’s manufacturing capabilities where continuous innovation is a practice rather than an exception. Long rails from JSPL help in achieving a drastic reduction in the welded joints, providing enhanced safety, cost reduction and travel comfort. The company’s products are subjected to stringent quality norms and therefore match all international standards.

JSPL is also a preferred supplier for crane rails which find widespread usage in electric overhead traveling (EOT) cranes as well as for gantry crane operations. The manufacturing plant is equipped with state-of- the-art facilities that aid continuous on-line inspection and quality control, helping to adhere to specifications laid down by the Indian Railways and other international organizations.

Head Hardened Rails

JSPL has pioneered the production of head hardened rails in India which are typically used in metro rail projects and high speed freight corridors. Head hardening technology entails a special heat treatment process which requires precise temperature control to achieve nearly 50 per cent higher hardness as compared to a normal rail.

Parallel Flange Beams and Columns

JSPL has pioneered the production of medium and heavy hot rolled parallel flange beams and column sections in India. These sections are cost-effective through savings in steel consumption and provide ultimate design flexibility to the structural designers.

The company has collaborated with JFE Engineering Corporation, Japan (formerly known as NKK Corporation), to introduce this innovative product in India. It leads technical innovation and advancement by offering H-beams that are unmatched in quality, performance and cost effectiveness.

Manufactured through the universal rolling method, these beams have standard nominal depth, with different flange and web thicknesses. This helps customers to choose from a variety of options in terms of unit weights and sectional properties. In fact, JSPL’s beams are the most sought after by structural engineers, architects and construction companies globally.

Plates and Coils: JSPL is equipped with India’s first state-of-the-art plate mill that started producing plates and coils of 5 meter and 3 meter width respectively, for the first time in the private sector.

The plate-cum-coil mill (steckle mill) of 1 MTPA capacity located at Raigarh, Chhattisgarh produces plates ranging from 8 mm to 120 mm in thickness in widths of 1500 mm to 3500 mm and coils in thickness range of 8 mm to 25 mm in widths of 1500 mm to 2500 mm.

The mill is equipped with walking beam type of reheating furnace where slabs are re-heated at a temperature of 1250 degree celsius and rolled in a mill with a 2 hi-reversing type roughing stand and a 4 hi-reversing type finishing stand. To ensure excellent surface quality, high-pressure de-scalers are provided at the entry and exit points.

An auto level 2 widths and thickness controlling system coupled with heavy leveler assures close dimensional tolerances and an increased level of flatness control. Right from the slab charging and plate production to the conclusive stage, fully equipped inspection facilities are in place.

Angles and Channels

Continuing its endeavour to provide a complete product basket and an enhanced structural section range to its customers, the company has commissioned a state-of-the-art 0.6 MTPA capacity medium and light structural mill (MLSM) at Raigarh, Chhattisgarh.

Jindal Panther TMT Rebars: The company produces TMT rebars with latest on-line high yield quenching and self-tempering (HYQST) technology. The modern mill equipped with morgan enhanced temperature control system (METS) produces TMT rebars in 6mm to 40 mm diameter suitable for high strength applications.

The production of TMT rebars involves a combination of plastic deformation of steel in austenitic stage followed by quenching and further tempering. The process controls at each critical operation ensure uniform properties in each rebar and provides the TMT rebars with a soft ferrite and pearlite fine-grained core, a strong and tough tempered martensite layer imparting it with high ductility as well as strength thus making it ideal for high rises, dams, bridges, individual houses and any critical structures where high yield strength is required without compromising on the elongation properties.

Wire Rods

In line with the company’s philosophy to expand its product range to offer a complete product basket to the customer, JSPL now also offers wire rods in 5.2 mm to 22 mm diameters from its first unit at the proposed 6 MTPA capacity integrated steel plant at Patratu, Jharkhand.

The 0.6 MTPA capacity wire rod mill at Patratu is equipped with the latest technology from Morgan Construction Company, USA (now known as Siemens).

Fabricated Sections

The Company has successfully added fabricated sections to its growing basket of quality products by offering:

  • H-type beams
  • I-type beams
  • Box sections
  • Star columns

Jindal Speedfloor

The Speedfloor is a lightweight suspended concrete floor system that is quick and easy to install. An extensive range of joist depths and topping thicknesses that satisfies loading and fire requirements, offers contractors and end users an efficient and cost-effective suspended concrete floor.

Semi-Finished Products

The company’s steel making facility at Raigarh, Chhattisgarh has a capacity to produce 3 MTPA of crude steel and a similar quantity of semi-finished steel which is primarily used for captive use at its 0.75 MTPA capacity rail and universal beam mill (RUBM), 1 MTPA capacity plate and coil mill and 0.6 MTPA capacity medium and light structural mill (MLSM).
