Gontermann-Peipers seeks FMC nod for multi-commodity exchange
We have found GPIL to be an excellent choice for steels where chipping and cracking have not been a problem. It has worked well in applications on thinner ...
Specific areas of R&D carried out by the company.
  • Development of microstructure re-engineered grade of ICDP and High Chromium rolls.
  • Improving depth of hardness in Forged Work Rolls by cryogenic treatment.
  • Improving methoding practice with the help of MAGMA simulation software.
 
Means & Objectives
  • The in-house R&D center of the company is recognised by the Government of India, Ministry of Science& technology, Department of Scientific & Industrial Research. The R&D center is equipped with the MAGMA simulation software for casting, LEICA image analysis system, Computerised Instron Universal testing machine, metallographical polishing unit, Computerised LECO C&S testing unit & ARL spectrometer, Krautkramer Ultrasonic tester, and other very sophisticated state of the art equipments for testing & R&D.
  • The R&D center of the company continuously carry out tests to ensure maximum assurance levels.
 
Benefits derived as a result of the above R&D
  • The company has established itself in the International market & repetitive and continuous export orders are being received both in cast forge steel rolls.
  • The company has been able to give customer specific solutions with substantially reduced response time gap, Synergistic relation with the steel industry has been maintained even in todays environment of rapid technological changes in the industry.
  • With the help of MAGMA simulation software, the R&D center is being able to improve the methoding practice, by which Internal defects & rejections have been significantly reduced.
  • The company has developed two significantly improved microstructure re-engineered grades of ICDP rolls with indigenous technology. The customer feedback about these is encouraging.
 
Future plan of action
  • Development of special quality Back Up Roll through an innovative route of production.
  • Development of a significantly improved microstructure re-engineered grade of Hi-Cr Roll.
  • Establish the process of Centrifugally cast Plate Mill rolls.
  • Carry-out basic and applied research in the area of roll manufacturing in collaboration with country’s premier research and technological institutes.
