small and medium-sized

small and medium-sized companies and national pavilions from Bulgaria, China, the Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Japan, South Korea, and the U.S. The Eurasian region accounts for 1.5 billion people and a GDP of $ 5 trillion. The international trade fair in Istanbul provides the exhibitors with a direct access to this huge market. Statistics illustrate the trade show’s appeal as an ideal platform to showcase and market their products for global as well as regional companies. WIN Eurasia 2015, had more than 1500 exhibitors from over 40 different countries. Among all the countries, Germany had the highest participation with more than 20 % exhibitors being German companies, followed by Italy, USA, and China. With a display space of more than 29,000 sq. meters, WIN Eurasia hosted more than 77,000 international visitors. A for automation In the coming decade, Turkey aims to be one of the world’s top 10 economies and top 5 machinery manufacturer and exporter as well. In order to do this, Turkish manufacturers are aiming to improve their quality standards while trying to hold on to their competitive pricing advantage: a challenge that can be overcome by advanced automation solutions. Otomasyon EURASIA presents the latest applications and solutions for industrial automation – including linear positioning systems, automatic assembly and handling systems, Communication and network systems like Field Bus, Ethernet and ProfiBus systems, control systems like PLC, SCADA, along with industrial IT and software, and robotics. To know more about what the regional and global automation companies have to offer, in order to satisfy Turkey’s challenges in manufacturing and production sector, WIN Eurasia is the perfect place to start with. The fair in Istanbul highlights the sales opportunities in growing sectors as automobile production, chemical processing, energy efficiency, food processing, mechanical engineering, and water and wastewater engineering. Material Handling Eurasia Increase in the manufacturing activity leads to increase in demand as well as the complexity of the material handling and the logistics sector. To satisfy the demand and resolve the complexities, the need for improved handling, stowage and storage arises. The WIN Material Handling fair focuses on the needs and requirements of the Material handling and logistics industry and provides economical and technologically viable solutions in this regards. In Turkey, matters such as reduction of investment costs and storage space are the most significant subjects for logistics and storage managers. Electro-Tech Today, Turkey is one of the world’s fastest growing energy markets owing to various initiatives from the government like privatization of generation and distribution of energy, establishing an energy exchange to ensure a stable supply and demand, and a target to increase the share of renewable energy. It is an extremely attractive market in which total investments in the energy sector are expected to reach $ 120 billion by 2023. Electrotech EURASIA provides a good platform to tap into Turkey’s growing power sector demands. It showcases systems and equipments for electrical energy generation, power transmission and distribution, equipments like electric motors and frequency inverters, electric and electronic measuring and test equipment, as well as accumulators, transformers and UPS.

Engineering in Turkey – the current situation Sevda Yilmaz, Chairman of Kayahan Group and member of the board of Turkish Machinery Turkey is located in a politically tense region. But what does this mean for mechanical engineering sector in the country? And what are the current trends? We talked to Sevda Yilmaz, Chaiman of Kayahan Group and member of the board of Turkish Machinery. The boom of recent years in Turkey seems to weaken. Where are the current problems? While the growth in the world economy in 2015 was rather weak with 2.5 %, the world trade shrank 10 % in dollar values. Naturally, Turkey was also affected by this. In addition to this, geopolitical developments in the region and the decline in oil prices have prevented us from catching the performance of the previous years. Two general elections in Turkey in 2015 have also led to the postponing of reforms in economy and a slowdown in trade. Nevertheless, with a better performance than many other countries, it is estimated we have grown by 3.5 %. In the medium-term economic program announced by the government it was seen that priority was given to R&D and production. Our main goal is to raise our technological value-added level of production and export. This is in particular much more important for the machinery sector. With the reforms to be made in 2016, a level of 4 to 4.5 % will be reached as estimated by some international organizations. This is an acceptable level of growth when the global developments are considered even though it is not sufficient for our country. The forthcoming process is the normalization and consolidation of Turkey. What are the current trends in mechanical engineering? The main topics and priorities are; n To develop and implement control systems on the accurate parts production in machinery and components Author: Dirk Schaar, editor-in-chief of AUTOMATION TECHNOLOGIES n Further improvements in data collection, evaluation and transfer processes or the control of process parameters, n SMED dissemination in all molds and processes, n Merging different materials for production of components and machineries, and increasing the use of composite materials with lower weight and higher strength n Remote access to process data and production of machinery with artificial intelligence that complement the concepts of industry 4.0 With “Turkish Machinery” your companies want to make more co-operations with other companies, e.g. in Germany. How far are you in this regard? As Turkish Machinery, our first target was to show our quality and competent products to a wider customer platform because many enterprises, institutions and organizations in Germany and in Europe did not exactly know the potential of Turkey in this field. We have made significant progress in this aspect. Now, machines are being exported from Turkey to more than 200 countries. However, on the other hand we know, how important it is to have excellent technological knowledge and expertise in order to be successful in this industry. To eliminate the deficiencies of Turkish enterprises in this field, we started to develop technological cooperation on enterprise and institution basis. For example, we conducted a research on cluster of University and R&D institutions formed by the leading significant corporations in Germany and we focused on how to develop this kind of co-operation and what are the relevant fields and subjects. At the end of this study, we signed the first co-operation agreement with OWL- Maschinenbau, that has developed major projects in Germany’s Industry 4.0. Afterwards, we signed a collaboration agreement with VEMAS Innovativ under Fraunhofer that realized significant innovations in machinery industry. Bringing together these two institutions and their member enterprises, we took the first steps for the future. We will witness that this cooperation will transform into more concrete projects. In the forthcoming period, we will give priority to the projects in Europe and Germany in which our enterprises may personally be involved. In addition, we will increase our activities to include highly technologically advanced institutions and businesses in Turkey. AUTOMATION TECHNOLOGIES 1/2016
