PENGG Usha Martin

We are a company specializing in the manufacture of wire for use in a variety of products and applications. Pengg Usha Martin has achieved several international recognitions within the fields of automobile and mechanical engineering. Key attributes that set us apart are: highest degree of dimensional accuracy, precision in mechanical properties, thorough knowledge of the metallurgical processes and close working relationship with customers with focused attention on their requirements. These qualities also represent our motto and our standards.

Formed as a result of collaboration between Joh Pengg AG, Austria and Usha Martin Limited India, both world leaders in their respective fields, Pengg Usha Martin started operations in 2008 with a manufacturing facility built over 11.3 acres of land at Tatisilwai in Ranchi. The state-of-art facility comprises of 10,000 m2 of covered shed, equipped with three EOT cranes with a capacity of 5 MT each. Further, we draw power from the captive power plant owned by the parent company, which is backed up by a UPS and DG, to ensure uninterrupted production.


An overview of some of the key processes are as follows:

Shaving: This process is carried out to meet the most demanding specifications for certain products. A 300-micron thick layer of rod is shaved off to reduce surface defects, remove decarburization and eliminate harmful effects in the wire rod manufacturing process.

Patenting: This is done to achieve a particular fine-grained microstructure with excellent cold working properties. This process also ensures extreme uniform wire properties and allows higher tensile strength of products.

Wire Drawing: Latest state-of-the-art technology has been adopted in this process to ensure that the wire confirms to the required dimensions. The company believes in the importance of torsion-free, low-friction wire guides and thorough cooling in the wire drawing process.

Oil Hardening & Tempering: A continuous process to optimize wire properties, it is carried out by quenching the wire to martensite structure in oil, followed by tempering in a lead bath. This results in a stress-relieved, homogenous structure with no deformation texture. Our customers appreciate the durability of these wires, their excellent fatigue life, reliability when subjected to elevated operating temperatures and high resistance against relaxation.

Eddy Current Testing: Spring wire for the highest dynamic stresses is checked against surface flaws using electromagnetic in-line testing. This system catches defects and colors the surface defects to more than 40 microns depth using two independent probes. Additional sensors give further information regarding the quality of the wire. This enables non-destructive quality inspection and testing of the entire length of the wire. When combined with our strict finished goods inspection, the system guarantees highest quality products suitable for further processing.
