Production capacity :
60% Complete20 000 tons of grinding media / Year
10% Complete2000 tons of wear resistant and heat resistant castings / year
80% CompleteThus, UCF overall production capacity is 22 000 tons / year.
Production facilities :
- Melting shop:Nine induction melting furnaces of various capacities
- Molding lines:Four moulding lines,One line of jolt squeeze machines,Two lines of DISAMATIC machines,One flour molding line
- Three shot blast machines
- Two breaker drums
- Technical office for design activities and Pattern making workshop for manufacturing araldite patterns.The success of grinding media patterns had been proved through more than 20 years of grinding media production.
Heat treatment Plant :
- Four continuous heat treatment furnaces
- Seven tempering furnaces
- One device for quantitative analysis of retained austenite. Retained austenite, being one of these undesirable phases, is quantitatively measured after heat treatment to assure that it is lower than a definite limit.
UCF has a group of laboratories that satisfy the needs of :
- process control plans implemented during production running
- The needs of inspection and testing activities of finished products
UCF laboratory facilities include :
- Two spectrometers for chemical analysis
- Complete set of devices for testing new sands and moulding sand mixtures, carrying out tests as:Green compression strength, shear strength, permeability,compactibility, moisture content, grain size.
- Stationary and portable hardness testing devices ( HB, HV, HRC )
- Metallographic laboratory with optical microscopes of magnification X 1200 attached with the necessary devices of grinding and polishing for samples preparation for the metallographic examination
- Non destructive testing for invisible crack detection.
Machining workshop :
- It is equipped with all the necessary machines and tools for conducting machining operations as per customer requirements.
- The machining workshop has a forging line for producing bolts necessary for fixing mill liners. Bolt threads are made by thread rolling machine
