UCR always maintains that the foremost benefit of any latest technology, if applied to an efficient operation, will automatically magnify the efficiency. This in turn will empower people and will bring out the best in quality as well as productivity.
UCR’s production line is the largest of its kind in Middle East with a rod production capacity exceeding 200,000 metric tons per annum. UCR utilizes the industry leading Southwire Continuous Rod Casting Technology (from the US) for the manufacture of its premium copper rods.
The Southwire Continuous Rod (SCR) process is
currently the most technically advanced continuous rod system to produce electrolytic tough pitch (ETP) copper rod in the world. Southwire technology has been an innovator and technology leader in copper rod manufacturing since the 1960s.
The Southwire Continuous Rod (SCR) process allows production of the highest quality copper wire rod and it has continued the improvement and development of the system to increase product quality & efficiencies. More than fifty percent (50%) of all copper rods made in the world is produced using the SCR technology.
