Aluminium slugs of different dimensions and shapes are applied in the production of tubes, cans, and other technical parts in the automotive or other types of industries. The slugs production process starts by casting a narrow strip from a foundry. The foundry producers narrowcast strips of different widths and from various alloys that are then hot- and cold-rolled, according to different thicknesses, and are coiled together. After that, the cold coils are constituted of input raw material for stamping slugs on stamping machines. There are about five stamping machines that are used for this purpose. Once the stamping process is completed, slugs are soft annealed and surface treated as well. The surface treatment is carried out by the means of sandblasting or vibrating. The surface treatment is then followed by packing and storing, as well as product dispatching to customers. Slugs are also stamped from alloys like EN AW 6082 and EN AW 3003, but the production process takes place in hot-rolled plates that are produced from rolling slabs. Aluminium slugs find its applications in food, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, electrical, and automotive industries.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Aluminium Slug production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
This report presents an analysis of capital and operating costs of a -based industrial plant. For those interested in economic assessments considering other plant locations, Procurement Resource offers optional analyses that complement this report.
