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 is editor-in-chief of MDA 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 co-operation 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. www.makinetanitimgrubu.com.tr/en MDA Technologies 1/2016 5
