Manufacturing

A specialist at every stage

Our engineering expertise differentiates us from the rest of the industry. We maintain complete control over our production and raw material quality, which most manufacturers are unable to do. With over 100 years of experience in evolving advanced rope design, our systems overcome the challenges of maintaining process control in various units around the world. The result is consistency in quality over many batches and a long period of time.

Extensive experience informs our choices at every stage of production - a critical element of which is in-house design of state-of-the-art equipment for wire making. The group operates many production units around the world, many of them having their own specialised area of expertise.

While others simply mention a ropes’ ‘calculated breaking force’, we operate a rigorous testing programme throughout the production process - online testing and quality checks sort the best from the average. Further, we confirm the minimum breaking force for every finished rope with an actual test to destruction; every packaged rope is supplied with a test certificate indicating the minimum breaking force, and the actual breaking force at which test samples break.

Industry leading rope performance is a good indicator of the quality of raw materials used. The Usha Martin Group manufactures steel and rod to internal standards even more exacting than international practices dictate. Our close and unique partnership with an ISO9001 certified steel making, rod manufacturing and wire drawing facilities guarantee production feed materials which are ‘tailor made’ to attain the right balance of properties your equipment needs.
