The India Thermit Corporation was founded in 1951 for the welding of railway tracks, using the Alumino-Thermic process, and manufacturing of related consumables. The company was set up as a joint venture with Elektro Thermit GmbH of Germany.

Since 1951, India Thermit has grown to become the world’s largest executor of Thermit welds and is a leading manufacturer of Thermit consumables such as the Thermit portion and pre-fabricated dry moulds. We execute over 300,000 welds annually with the Flash Butt and Alumino-Thermic processes and supply an additional 250,000 Thermit welding kits to our customers. We employ a dedicated workforce of over 1,900 employees, including permanent staff and construction workers, to service clients in Asia and Africa. India Thermit operates five manufacturing plants in Kanpur, Jainpur, Rudrapur and Nagpur.

Since its inception, India Thermit has successfully diversified into the following new products and Services:

Job Description

They use a mobile welding plant to weld rail tracks using the flash butt welding process. The welding head of the mobile welder pulls and aligns the two end rails. then charges them electrically and hydraulically forges the rail ends together by melting the two parent ends. The welding head automatically shears upset metal to within 1/8″ of the rail profile.

They use Grinder then removes the 1/8″ flashing material from the rail. This leaves a smooth base and greatly reduces the likelihood of stress risers, which shorten the life of the rail. The sides and head of the rail are also ground to the profile of the parent rail. Once the welding is complete we test the joint for hardness, ultrasonic flaws and acceptable stress.

For both process they need Diploma holders in Mechanical / Electrical. Because both process are technical and responsible.
