Continuing with our commitment towards improving customer deliveries with speed, RHI Magnesita India operationalized a world-class Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) at our R&D Centre in Bhiwadi on Mar 20. With this equipment, our R&D team in India will now be able to analyze and determine the root cause of refractory failures, previously being done at our R&D Centre in Leoben, Austria. It will ensure faster response time to our customer requirements and help us deliver ever better customer value.

While inaugurating the equipment, Parmod Sagar, MD & CEO RHI Magnesita India Ltd. said, “One of the fundamental drivers of our business model is innovation and R&D which is also reflected in our mission of taking innovation to 1200°C and beyond. We will continue to invest in industry-leading R&D to improve our product-offerings with tailored solutions and strengthen our customer relationships.”

Dr. Narendra Mishra, Regional Head of R&D highlighted that, “It’s been more than a year since the inauguration of R&D facility in Bhiwadi and we are proud of the fact that we have achieved significant strides in delivering great customer value. Today, our R&D Centre is well-equipped with latest technology and equipment to cater to our customer needs. We have laid out plans to further invest in world-class equipment currently unavailable in India to develop next generation refractory solutions with faster R&D delivery.”

About SEM

Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) is a modern instrument that uses a beam of highly energetic electrons to examine the surface and phase distribution of specimens on a micro-scale through the live imaging of secondary electrons (SE) and back-scattered electrons (BSE) images and EDX. With high-resolution composition details of the refractories, it helps with identification of gaps in structure, scaling of pores, etc.
