Founded in 1981 by a team of enterprising technocrats, our plant is situated about 300km to the south-east of Mumbai (formerly ‘Bombay’), amidst the picturesque hills of Sahyadris, in the historic town of Satara which, at one time, was the seat of Maratha kingdom. Although a small-scale unit, it is equipped with some of the most modern machineries and testing facilities so essential for producing precision-engineered components like Cast Alnico and Nd-Fe-B Permanent Magnets.
Commercial production of oriented Alnico magnets commenced on a small-scale in 1984 and over the years, through continuous upgradation of equipment and quality, we have built a magnificent plant with some of the finest facilities and a skilled and dedicated work force. Our testing facilities, for instance, include an XRF
( X-Ray Radiation Fluorescence ) chemical analyser and an automatic on-line magnet sorting machine, which is probably unique in India.
Manufacturer of Cast Alnica, Rare Earth (Nd-Fe-b) & Samarium Permanent Magnets
Until about 1975, Alnico Magnets were the most widely used magnets in the world. The last 35 years have seen a sharp decline in the demand for them mainly because of the soaring prices of Cobalt and the availability of high coercivity materials like Ferrites and Rare Earths, the former being also the cheapest.
