After a vast experience in the steel sector, the Company is enlarging its horizon by entering into Aluminium business as well. The Company has taken a step forward to put up 3 Aluminium Foil Rolling mills where bare Aluminium Foil is produced by rolling foil stock on two high speed, 4-Hi Foil Mills – a Davy united sheet Mill, a Universal Spidem Foil Mill & a Finishing Achenbach Foil Mill with rolling width of 1100 mm. Both finishing mills are capable of rolling down to light (9-12 microns) & ultra-light gauges (7 microns).
The mills have been upgraded with new Siemens drives, automatic gauge control & upgraded hydraulics. The mills are well supported by ancillary equipment such as Rewinder, Doubler, Separators (Kampf & Schmutz), Annealing furnaces, Roll Grinder (Herkules) and a fully equipped quality assurance laboratory. The combination of mills makes the manufacturing system extremely versatile in terms of gauge mix, and Universal Foils aims to carve out a niche for itself in the light gauge foil market for House foil & packaging of Gutka, Food, Confectionery and Cigarette.
