Ltd. initially had placed an order worth of Rs.300 lakhs for filling up of flower pots and packing, chakkar filling and chakkar winding. As a first project, M/s CITD has taken up for Module-1 (Consists of flower pot chemical filling & Packing). The total project consists of 10 different stations like paper cutting & pasting, chemical filling, washer insertion & Ramming, mud filling & sealing etc.
The Aim of project is to automate the entire above process for relieving human fatigue and to save human from hazardous environment. The entire process is minimal human intervention. Hence, it is safe for humans to handle the machine in Fireworks Industry.
This is the first of its kind with fully indigenous technology. CITD and M/s. SFPL had filed a joint Patent application No.6068/CHE/2015 for innovation “AUTOMATIC MACHINE FOR THE PRODUCTION OF CONICAL SHAPED FIREWORKS”. The uniqueness of machine is that it completely works on pneumatic system for entire process of manufacturing. There is no electrical or electronics system used in process. Therefore, this can avoid most of the fire accidents in field of fireworks industries. The trials had been conducted by customer with original Chemical in flowerpots and attaining the target production cones of 120 pieces per minute.
