From coarse and rocky iron ore to tough and shiny steel - the making of the alloy is a journey that starts from the crust of the earth, involves complex metallurgical reactions and processes, and demands technological expertise of the highest degree. Tata Steel’s Jamshedpur plant, the very first steel plant in India (production started in 1912), is today among the country’s largest integrated steel-making facilities, producing around 10 million tonnes of steel every year.
The hot metal is converted into steel through a steelmaking process called the LD process.
The steel is cast into slabs, which are then rolled into hot rolled coils in the Hot Strip Mill & Thin Slab Caster. Some of the hot rolled coils are further rolled into cold rolled and galvanisedcoils in the Cold Rolling Mill.
The steel is cast into billets, which are then rolled into rebars and wire rods in the Long Product Rolling Mills.
