Our technical approach optimises production processes, reduces costs and focuses on continuously improving the performance of packaging steel. We draw on our knowledge and experience to develop new grades for the future.
Tata Steel is committed to the future of packaging steel and it shows in our innovative approach to steelmaking and tinplate production. We translate technical production and market knowledge into effective development programmes. By entering into initiatives across the supply chain, we ensure more effective delivery.
Whether it's lighter, more sustainable steel, the latest process engineering development, or the newest food safety legislation, we have both the strong supply chain involvement and the market-aware technology to deliver tomorrow's steel packaging.
The Innovation Centre provides the technical knowledge and skills that helps us keep our products at the forefront of our market.
We have access to the global expertise of Tata Steel's R&D facilities. Based in IJmuiden, the Netherlands, the Centre has available to it some of the best research, development and technical resources in the steelmaking and tinplate world.
Our investigations include studies of corrosion and mechanical performance during handling, processing and storing. We use computer modelling to predict performance before the actual component is produced, speeding up development time and reducing trial and error.
Dealing with all aspects of the packaging supply chain, from welding, forming and coating to filling, seaming, sterilising and recycling, it provides the technological knowledge and skills that help Tata Steel to maintain our leading position in the packaging market.
Our Product Development team draws on a solid foundation in metallurgy, the latest developments in coatings and can-making technology.
We support the development of tomorrow's high performance steel packaging solutions. Projects may range from the development of new steel grades, to the design of a new manufacturing process, to assessments to explore how to improve your packaging's performance.
