Hello, welcome to the world of TisconReadyBuild; a downstream service brand which gives customised solutions for all your construction needs related to rebars. In line with the endeavour to come closer to the infrastructure industry, TisconReadyBuild stands as an effort to simplify your life and brings hassle-free construction for you when it comes to rebar usage.
Adding to the long list of innovations in products & services, the latest entrant from Tata Tiscon is TisconReadyBuild.
TisconReadyBuild, a rebar downstream service presently offers the Cut & Bend, Couplers and BBS Development Services that aims at providing customised rebar shapes of rebar needed at the construction sites. In the future, Tata Steel plans to add more downstream products & services like pilecages and meshes under TisconReadyBuild brand. Currently there are 18 operating production facilities to provide 'Cut & Bend' services that covers the length & breadth of the country.
The cut and bend structures required in construction often use rebars of different shapes and sizes. Often cutting & bending of the rebars is done at the construction site by the unskilled labours. Since it is manually done by the labourers, there are high chances of inaccuracies & inefficiencies in the system. There are many other challenges that are faced by different stakeholders during the construction process that includes timely availability of material, skilled labour shortages, wastages, scrap disposal etc.
Cut and bend service under TisconReadyBuild aims at providing customised shapes of rebars needed at the construction sites. With ReadyBuild, the construction companies don't need to worry about the availability of SKUs needed in the Cut and Bend structure. The ReadyBuildCentrescustomise the lengths of the rebars and bend them at required angles in accordance with the project's blueprint. It is capable of making the common shapes stirrups to complex helical shapes.
The cut & bend production processes at ReadyBuildCentres involve 3 world class fully-automated Italian make machines.
Shearline is a specialist cutting machine that cuts the rebar to required length with extreme precision. Robo Smart is a bending machine that gives rebar the required shape by bending rebars at required angles. It can bend rebars of all sizes ranging from 6mm-40mm. Prima R is a specialist coil machine which is used to make stirrups of different shapes. It uses the coils of sizes 6mm-12mm.
TisconReadyBuild provides the reliability of steel and supply, better site productivity due to reduced involvement of labour and reduced wastage. These centers give a 'just-in-time' delivery service that works like clockwork to meet a project's 'cut and bend' needs in compliance with the client's working schedule.
At an overall level, use of ReadyBuild will facilitate timely completion of projects leading to a better Working Capital Management and revenue realisation for construction companies. The ReadyBuildCentres are designed on and supported by the technology used in the cut and bend service offered by NatSteel, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Steel.
Couplers are hollow mechanical structures which are threaded inside and screwed on to two rebars, which are combined to form a mechanical joint. Tata Tiscon is the only Indian steel producer that manufactures its own line of mechanical couplers, which are to be used with Tata Tisconrebars. A coupler is used to reinforce bar joints between two rebars. The existing method to combine rebars is called 'lapping'. This is a process where two rebars are laid parallel to each other over a certain length and then tied together using a binding wire.
This lapping process is extremely difficult, labour intensive and time consuming. Furthermore, it involves the usage of additional material like concrete, rebars and wires to increase the strength of the joints which leads to an escalation in costs. In accordance with the IS 456-2000 code of practice, mechanical couplers can be used to combine two rebars. TisconReadyBuild's Couplers comply with En8D grade to ensure the chemical composition of all products match their predefined specifications. Our couplers are available in an SKU range from 16mm to 40mm, covering a wide range of customer needs, while ensuring structural integrity and savings in costs.
Lap Lengths of the order of the 40-50x diameter, which cannot add any value structurally, are avoided
The usage of binding wires and handling issues by labourers is eliminated
The smooth flow of concrete pouring leads to structural integrity
Ideal steel ratio ensures optimum steel in structural member cross section
The mechanical joints are less dependent on the concrete load transfer
Quicker installations are achieved thanks to reduced handling and faster assembly
Couplers can be installed as provisions for future extensions A coupler eliminates the unwanted look of extended rebars and the huge amount of concrete breaking required during extensions
ο Wall to slab connection
ο Beam to column connection
ο Column-lap replacement
ο Raft foundations
ο Future extensions/additions

TisconReadybuild now offers professional service to develop Bar Bending Schedule customers. This BBS can be created using Auto Cad drawing or any other format like PDF or hardcopy.
Our team of experts use the latest computer software to provide error free bar bending schedules
Accurate positions and dimensions of all rebars
Bar bending schedules are available as AutoCAD drawings, PDFs and hard copies
Can easily be downloaded from the internet, once all the requisite approvals take place
Streamlined cutting of rebars at the factory leads to faster production cycles
Since cutting & bending process will done at ReadyBuild Center, hence the wastages at the site becomes zero and we take care of all the generated wastages.
Labourers at a construction site essentially perform two functions involving rebars; cutting and bending and tying. ReadyBuild will significantly reduce the dependence on the labourers for cut and bend activities.
ReadyBuild is delivered on an "On Time in Full" policy; i.e. it will be delivered within 7 to 15 days after finalisation of the design thereby significantly reducing pressure at the project manager's end to adhere to deadlines.
Being a Tata Tiscon rebar, Readybuild is made from Virgin iron ore giving it superior strength and ductility than the secondary steel rebars in the market. It is also cut and bent by high precision machines making it the best in class in the category of ready to use rebars.
Owing to its customised design and "On time in full" delivery pattern, ReadyBuild is present just in time at site on requirement. This not only reduces the amount of space you need to utilise for keeping rebars, it also helps you in saving costs associated with wastage and labour.
ReadyBuild can be easily managed and its different shapes can be easily recognised with the use of identification tags.
The machines use to make ReadyBuild can transform any Tata Tiscon rebar into a shape you envision. You can now have the freedom to design complex columns, pillars, ceilings being worry free on the rebar to be used.
ReadyBuild brings with it a design suited to the project requirements thereby reducing the cost involved in cutting and bending by the labourers. ReadyBuild also keeps your inventory costs to a minimum owing to the "On time in Full" delivery policy so that you save on real estate and overhead associated with wastage.
ReadyBuild's "On time in full" delivery policy and the help from two coordinators as part of the after sales team guiding the usage of the cut and bent steel rebars for usage ensures that your construction ends on time with the best possible materials. The spill over benefits includes living a happy life supported by the Tata trust.
ReadyBuild sets the path for the timely completion of the project which is a key requirement for any promoter to envision the growth of their brand.
