VOLCO INDUSTRIES., an ISO 9001:2008 certified company was established in 1989 in Waghodia Dist Baroda Gujarat, India. The company was initially started as a vendor for Asea Brown Boveri (ABB), which is India’s leading MNC in area of manufacturing. The company eventually diversified into regional market with the vision of establishing its monopoly in the entire western and central area in 1990.
After successfully manufacturing and marketing laminates for over 5 years, a second plant was opened for exclusive manufacturing of sheet of size 1250 x 2500 mm and up to thickness of 120 mm. High expectations were set for this plant and phenomenal projections were made for the first year itself. True to the conclusion of its feasibility study, this plant overran all the projection in the first year itself and started generating positive revenue within the fourth month of its operation.
Volco Industries has a substantial experience in manufacturing glass epoxy laminates, but has only focused on some key and niche markets in India, resulting into more specialized manufacturing knowledge and capabilities, rather than mass manufacturing infrastructure and serving broader market. In accordance with the tremendous growth that Indian Electrical industries are achieving currently, the demand for insulation components are going to increase manifolds, and hence it is the right time for us to enter the automated technology of making components through water jet cutting system.
Volco industries firmly believe that by joining hands with a recognized international manufacturer, we will be able to develop solid synergy in terms of product quality, our low cost manufacturing facilities throughout the country.
The company also realizes high potential of power industries insulation components market in India, which is hardly exploited by Indian manufacturers. Currently, there is a large vacuum in India in terms of manufacturers who can sustain high quality product and compete against imports (which are extremely expensive for Indian manufacturers). The need of the day is to manufacture and market low cost insulation components
Glass fabric laminates are manufactured using high-pressure techniques and are characterized by extremely high mechanical strength and outstanding electrical and thermal properties.
Glass Cloth laminates are manufactured using high-pressure techniques and are characterized by extremely high mechanical strength and outstanding electrical and thermal properties.
This laminates are based on fiberglass woven roving cloth as reinforcing material and polyester resin as matrix . The laminate is prepared under control low pressure and high temperature. It possess improved mechanical and electrical properties. In the manufacturing of the laminate modified polyester resin used along composition of ATH powder to impart better thermal properties to the level of thermal class F. and higher CTI value, and fire retardant properties. The glass content is optimized to impart better properties even after usage at elevated temperature.
FRP TUBE are use in Dry type / Power / transformers, Switchgear, Chocks, Cable trays, power resistor, operating discharge rod, for electrical insulation application for Winding applications as insulation properties. Available in Polyester and Epoxy resin With class F 155 °C
Machining reinforced plastics, such as our high- and low-pressure laminates as well as our tubes, require the appropriate know-how, machines, tools and equipment. In our processing centers we can saw, as well as perform CNC milling, turning, drilling and grinding according to drawings. Our large range of modern equipment allows us to meet any customer requirements (up to 2 axis milling operations).
