The four levels of entire Quality Management are as follows:
Inspection Process Purpose:
- Total Quality Management (TQM)
In this process, material and products at different production stages are inspected, tested, identified and traced in line with the applicable IS specifications and customer requirements. Scope:
Right from product receipt, during process and before dispatch, product is inspected, tested, identified and traced.
Procedure: Direct Reduced Iron Unit (D.R.I.):
Fe content in the sized iron-ore and ash content in the coal are tested and then charged to D.R.I plant. The sponge iron produced at the DRI plant is tested for its Fe content as well as chemical composition, and is identified by day wise production.
The material that conforms is further taken to SMS plant for charging, while the material did not conform are send to reject yard. Steel Melting Shop (SMS):
The material is melted at about 18, 0000 C in an Electric Arc Furnace in the SMS plant. The control of molten material's chemistry is achieved by automatically removing slag in the Arc furnace. The molten metal is inspected for its chemical composition. Several ferroa lloys are added to meet the required composition. The molten steel with required chemical composition is sent from Electric Arc Furnace to the continuous casting unit for casting billet. Continuous Casting Machine (CCM):
The produced billets are visually inspected to check its surface condition and then are tested for chemical composition. The surface discontinuity in the material is not entertained, and it is sent for recycling at SMS unit. The tested billet is passed to the Rolling Mill raw material yard with an appropriate batch number.
Rolling Mill: The Billets passed to the Rolling mill for production. Inspection at all stages are performed during the production process. Identification and segregation process of non-conforming products are carried out and those products are passed to recycling unit. The finished product is visually inspected and for its physical property in the final inspection. Then, a Lot Number is allotted to it and then it is stored in the finished product yard.
