  • The ultra clean liquid steel has been developed with close control of chemical composition & impurities.
  • HEC has now established the technological processes and controls needed to make forgings for nuclear power sector.
  • CNC Vertical Turning & Boring machine for Durgapur Wheel and Axle Plant

    15 nos. of machines were manufactured with Automatic Wheel Handling System to cater the production of 1 lakh wheels per year from rough forging to finish stage. These wheels are being supplied to INDIAN RAILWAYS for direct mounting on axles. The machines were equipped with FANUC 12 T with Auto Tool Changer.

  • CNC Deep Hole Boring machine

    The machine was designed & developed with Sinumerik 810 M.GA3. The machine was commissioned in 1994 at Field GUN Factory, Kanpur for deep hole drilling/trepanning of large size gun barrels. It's performance was appreciated by the user.

  • CNC Planing machine for Copper Mould machining

    Designed for machining Concave / Convex profile on the copper mould to be used on continuous casting machine. The machine was developed with FANUC 0-MC CNC System for Rourkela Steel Plant, in the year 1995.

  • Heavy Duty CNC Roll Turning Lathe for Rolling Mills

    4 nos. of machines were developed & manufactured for rough & finish machining of Rolls with very high skin hardness. These machines with a use of FANUC 0-TD CNC System were supplied & commissioned at Bokaro steel Plant in the year 1997.
