A Study on Elimination of Defects for Enhancement of Cost-Effectiveness in Wire Rod Mills in Indian Scenario
The custodian of all standards of product quality and characterization is the quality controlling unit. In this thesis
we have tried to identify the possible reasons like Segregation, Resolved Peralite, Laps, Fins, Chip off and other defects
which are mainly responsible for the non-prime production by the Wire rod mill, there by suggesting the probable remedial
measures, accounted the existing tests and examining procedures and have tried to bring certain alterations in method of
visualization which can help in better identification and eradication of defective products. There is also the study on the
enhancement of the cost-effectiveness with the minimization of defects arises due to the non-prime products.
