Each of the two factories at Kadiyam and Gummidipoondi are having two sets of tandem type in line stranding machines for the stranding of upto 5417 construction transmission line conductors with the conductor being manufactured in one pass of the stranded steel core through the machine. The steel core is being stranded on tubular stranding machines fitted with pre-forming and post-forming devices. Two slip type wire drawing machines for the production from the aluminium wire rod in one operation of the aluminium wires of the required diameter which are used for stranding in the conductor are installed in each factory.
