Start a Wrought Iron Furniture Making Unit

(203) Start a Wrought Iron Furniture Making Unit

Wrought iron articles in furniture industry are becoming more popular. The articles like chairs, sofas, tables and beds are made in quite attractive models with different designs on their arms and backs. Wooden furniture after some period, is worn out due to defects in wood quality and normal wear and tear. Due to elegant appearance, durability and innovative designs, wrought iron furniture is becoming popular in modern society. They are fast replacing the conventional wooden tables, chairs, sofas, beds.
Market Potential
With increase in the population and overall development that has taken place in the country, the number of educational institutions, hospitals, commercial establishments and offices are widely using chairs, tables, sofas and beds. This is creating good market potential in urban and semi-urban areas. As already explained, due to certain specific advantages, wrought iron furniture is fast replacing conventional wooden items. Apart from the domestic market, there is also export market for quality wrought iron furniture.
Basis and Presumptions
1) The cost of machinery and equipment is for particular make and prices are approximate.

2) All the operations involved in manufacturing wrought iron furniture will be undert taken in Industrial Workshop of the unit.

3) This project profile is prepared on the basis of double shift for 16 hours of working in a day. Total working days in a year have been assumed to be about 300 and efficiency 75%.

4) The skilled and semi-skilled workers in line are available in the local area.

5) The rental value of the land and built up area has been stipulated on the basis of rate prevailing in the industrial area. It may vary from place to place.

6) Rate of interest has been calculated @ 12% per annum. However, this figure is likely to vary depending on the financial outlay of the project and location of the unit.

7) The provisions made in other respect viz; personnel, utilities, raw material and over head expenses etc. are based on the prevailing market rates.

8) All the machinery, raw material would be available from indigenous sources.

9) The break-even point has been calculated on envisaged capacity utilisation basis.

10) The operative period of this project is estimated to be about ten years, considering technology obsolescence.

Technical Aspects

Process of Manufacture
In the open market, plenty of raw material of wrought iron in the shape of round, square, iron rods, square pipes and also in other sectional forms is available. Wrought iron is having its own property of “malleability,” it can withstand the load without cracking.
Chairs, tables, sofas and beds used in offices, factories, houses and hospitals are made from light wrought iron sheets, strips and tubular wrought iron. The sheets, strips and tubular wrought iron are cut to required sizes and pressed to shape, bent in a press brake for sides and drawers. Pipes of wrought iron for chairs, tables, sofas and beds can also be bent according to design. Backs of chairs, sofas and beds consist of decorative designing of various kind of flowers and leaves etc. For this, design can be made on pressing machine on the strips of wrought iron of different sizes. Then the sides and backs of wrought iron furniture are welded. Holes are made by drilling, wherever necessary for fitting screws.
Fixing of doors, hinges, assembly, cleaning, pickling and drying are to be done before painting. The spray painted articles are to be stove enamelled.
Quality Control and Standards 

There is no quality standard. It is only fabrication of wrought iron steel with various self made designs. The attractive designs thus put lot of cheeriness in the products of wrought iron furniture.
Production Capacity
It is proposed to manufacture 1500 Chairs, tables, sofas and beds each per annum assuming their weight to be 7.5 Kg., 15 Kg, 22 Kg and 30 Kgs. respectively of wrought iron steel viz. rods, pipes and strips of various sizes.
Motive Power10 HP.
Pollution Control
No pollution control device is necessary for this project. However, spray painting will cause pollution to some extent which can be minimised by installing exhaust fans in painting room.
Energy Conservation
No specific energy conservation system is required. Energy conservation can be done by saving single phase power connections as much as possible. General awareness is to be created for economic utilisation of energy at all points as far as practical.
