Dec 13, 2022 / By System Admin / in TMT Steel

Cut and Bend TMT

Conventional TMT Steel

2 % Savings

(See cost comparison)

No Savings

0 % Wastage

Eliminates/ No scrap produced

5 % Minimum Wastage

Unused material being discarded as scrap

Faster Construction

Saves more time

Hassle free fast procurement

Requires lesser labour work space

Slower Construction

Bar bending at site consumes more time

Procurement depends upon stock availability

Requires bigger work space due to lengthy rods

Higher Structural Strength

Matches IS Requirements

Precisely cut by specialized machinery

Couplers are used for TMT rod joining

Lower Structural Strength

Do not match IS requirement

Inconsistency and uneven manual bending

TMT rods are joined unevenly using fragile wires

No Site Theft

Packed materials delivered to your site on time, as per your construction schedule thus avoiding stacking and lossage.

Prone to Pilferage

Since steel rods are dumped at the site and are left unattended, chances of materials being stolen is much higher.

Requires less Storage Space

No overstacking at site

Easy to audit the quantity

Packed accordingly to bar bending schedule

Requires more Storage Space

Increases on-site inventory

Difficult to seggregate & audit all size rods

Unevenly dumped rods consumes more storage space
