Impact of Wire Rod Rolling Mill Mechanisation on Job Requirements

Descovich, S and Pompilo, L (1959) Impact of Wire Rod Rolling Mill Mechanisation on Job Requirements. In: Symposium on Iron & Steel Industry in India Organised by the NML, Aug.'1959, NML, Jamshedpur.



THE present investigation has the purpose of identifying the effects of mechanisation on the work force requir-ements in the steel rolling mill plants.In order that this study will not add,to the confusion or be ascribed an importance beyond its validity,the whole framework of the investigation will be considered before proceeding. The labour aspects of mechanisation will be invest-igated only as they are encountered in the restricted area of the steel rod rolling mill plants. We shall consider what happens to labour requirements under increasing mechanisation only in three plants repre-senting different stages of mechanisation which are chara- cterising the technological development of this kind of rolling plants.1 In this way the mechanisation effect alone could be isolated with the consideration of the jobs change through the three rolling plants. It is not correct to assume that this study represents an experience on the impact of auto-matic machinery oil labour outside the restricted area in which the data are collected. The usefulness of the present examination lies there-fore in revealing patterns of experience with automation that may be typical of rod rolling mill development, and in identifying their effect on the work force requirements.
