46 Exhibitors inquired for the dates & venue of 2nd IFFE.
The Indian foundry industry is a leading engineering sector with annual production of over 7 million tonnes of castings, accounting for about 8–9% of total castings production in the world. There are approximately 4,500 foundry units in the country out of which 90% can be classified as small-scale units, 8% as medium-scale units, and 2% as large-scale units. The foundry industry is dispersed across various geographical clusters, of which the Kolhapur cluster is one of the major ones. Kolhapur was traditionally an agro-based economy. Demand for oil engines and agricultural implements grew with industrialization in the region. This led to the emergence of the foundry industry which evolved around the 1960s. Today Kolhapur is a leading foundry cluster, renowned for manufacturing quality castings.
There are approximately 300 foundry units located in the Kolhapur and Sangli districts of the region. While units in Sangli are located mainly in the Miraj and Palus industrial areas, foundries in the Kolhapur district are spread across eight major industrial estates. The cluster primarily manufactures ferrous (iron) castings covering both SG iron and grey-iron castings. The total production of the Kolhapur foundry cluster is estimated to be 600,000 tonnes per annum. A majority of the foundry units in the cluster cater to the automotive sector along with other sectors such pumps / valves, sugar, textiles, etc. The cluster has experienced growth in turnover, employment and exports over the past few years. Almost 30% of production is being exported to several countries and catering to numerous industries.
Kolhapur foundries use the conventional sand casting production method which involves several processes such as preparation, melting, and finishing. The processes are highly energy consuming and energy intensive. The cluster consumes over 1000 million kWh of electrical energy and over 120,000 tons of coke per year. The specific energy consumption (SEC) of the foundries also ranges between 1000 – 1200 kWh per tonne of good castings. Rising energy costs and high share of energy in total production costs indicate the urgent need for energy efficiency in the cluster. Though the cluster is undergoing a technological shift from coke-based cupola furnaces to electrically operated induction furnaces, immense scope exists for technology modernization and energy savings in process technologies such as induction furnaces, mixers, grinders as well in cross-cutting technologies such as compressors, pumps and motors etc.
