Nature of operations
Aluminum rods, overhead line conductors, and drawn wire manufacturing
Oman Aluminum Industries LLC (OAPIL)
Oman Aluminum Industries LLC, otherwise known as OAPIL is a major manufacturer of aluminum rods, overhead line conductors, and drawn wire. The company is a major contributor to Oman cable and power industries (“Subsidiaries & Associations” par. 3). The nature of the company’s operations is aimed at meeting the rapidly growing demands of those sectors, as well as provide its customers with high-quality materials.
OAPIL has certifications for its According to the company’s website, “OAPIL has positioned itself as a credible and high-quality player with the latest technology and is poised to delivers superior quality of product at great value” (“OAPIL: The Product” par.1). Its major strategic importance relies on its role as an integrated part of Oman cables industry. It is also important to point out the fact that Oman Aluminum Industries LLC offers affordable prices for the local companies, but it also is attempting to be more engaged at the level of the international market. Another strategic asset of the company is that it relies on innovative equipment and facilities, as well as quality supply materials, which allows it to meet the rapidly changing standards of the cables and power industries.
Rods, conductors, cables, and wire manufacturing process
Automated processes of producing aluminum rods, overhead line conductors, and drawn wire includes a number of steps. First of all, the necessary quality materials, such as aluminum and aluminum and steel alloys. The aluminum rods production requires heating the metal, forming it into a tube, casting, and coiling it. In the case of manufacturing various conductors, the process also involves producing alloys, shaping the products into a necessary form, and coiling them.
OAPIL produces three types of aluminum conductors with pure aluminum and different alloys. The process also involves quality evaluation, testing, and packaging. Cables production requires heating of metal and alloys, stretching, shaping, making metal flexible, and casting, while drawn wire is produced on a special request with the process similar to the manufacturing of cables.
Basic materials and ingredients for producing aluminum rods, cables overhead line conductors, and drawn wire
Pure aluminum, electrolytic ally of refined aluminum, solid steel, 99.7% aluminum alloy for outer stranding, ingredients for corrosion resistance, molding sand.
Equipment required for manufacturing aluminum rods, cables overhead line conductors, and drawn wire
