Hindalco Industries Limited has selected Danieli Service DanJoint heavy duty spares for its plate mill for aluminum flat products at Hirakud, Odisha in India. With a length of 12 meters and a weight of 30 tons, the new DanJoint giant-slipper-spindle will bring new power to the 144 inch heavy-duty hot rolling unit. The giant spindle was manufactured at Danieli HQ workshops in Italy in a record time of just 4 months, matching the challenging customer requirement. Hindalco chose Danieli also for the recognized manufacturing quality and ability to process heavy-duty items and in-house heat treatments. The shrink-fitting process of the heads of the spindle was executed in vertical position in manufacturing area dedicated for such large-scale products.
Currently the new spindle is on the way to India where it will be installed by the Hindalco maintenance team with assistance by Danieli Service India.
