What makes Thermo Mechanically Treated bars so special?

Since more than 2 decades, Agni Steels has been a leading manufacturer of finished and semi-finished steel products in India. During our journey from the humble 3-ton furnace in 1992, to the two 15-ton induction furnaces, we have constantly upgraded our manufacturing facility to offer the best steel products for our valued customers. A lot of technological developments contributed to making this transition possible.
Here is a brief account of the same:

Before the advent of TMT technology, Agni Steels manufactured carbon steel bars with the help of ingots. Realising the drawbacks of carbon steel rebars, and developments in casting machines and TMT tech, we shifted to manufacturing superior quality TMT Steel rods. TMT stands for Thermo Mechanically Treated steel bars, which combine mechanical processes like compression, forging, rolling, etc. with thermal processes like re-heating, quenching, etc. Ingots were soon replaced by Billets, and moulds were superseded by our CCM (Continuous Casting Machine). TMT rods soon replaced carbon steel rods worldwide, due to their superior physical properties.

Here are a few reasons why TMT bars are perfect for their usage as rebars:

These properties are maintained during the manufacture of a TMT steel rod, due to the modernized machinery we incorporate at our leading-edge manufacturing facility. This leads to casting a pristine quality TMT steel rod that is on par with the international standards. Here at Agni Steels, we believe in offering the best-in-class TMT Steel rods for the Indian masses at competitive prices. Our drive to do so enables us to incorporate developments in the technology for improving the quality of our high strength steel rods.
