Having over 43 years of experience in processing, Akım Metal is producing metal parts and metal injection parts for white goods, automotive and industrial motor sectors in Tuzla-Istanbul. The purpose of the R&D center which established on October 17, 2011 is to acquire the ability to produce technology. Arçelik, Kordsa and Tofaş were the first three of all R&D Centers, while AKIM METAL A.Ş. received the best R&D Center award in Machinery and Equipment sector. This has been an important sign of the success in short time that has been registered by the Ministry.
First, design technology, which is the ability to transform scientific knowledge into product, is being obtained and then the production of the designed product is possible only when production know-how is obtained as a result of R&D studies. Akımmetal R&D center has worked to meet the demands of Automotive, White Goods, Health Industry, Led Lighting products and increase the quantity and quality of R&D projects. R&D work has become even more intense in these periods, as the experience gained on such subjects like Mold, Chip Manufacturing and Metal Injection has been transferred to mechanical products to be created through the integration of manufactured parts. It is necessary to increase research and development (R&D) activities and invest in R&D to produce a new product and differentiate in the market. In this regard, intensive studies within Akım Metal A.Ş. have been an important factor in opening up to foreign markets and the company´s exports have reached appreciable levels over the years. All these developments are seen as successful achievements with R&D studies. With the receipt of the R&D Center Approval, the culture of project preparation and especially the projecting to Teydep has developed at significant scale. In this regard new projects organized by the company have been introduced. The Santez projects are also an important part of our center. Since the establishment of the R&D Center, joint project work with many universities has started and is still going on. Apart from these, some of the University Instructors are also working on project basis and consulting services are provided. Under the favour of these projects, the first products and brands have started to be formed; the medical sector, industrial motors and led lighting brands have been established. Patent, utility model, industrial design and trademark registration and products have been tried to be protected. For the promotion of R&D projects, domestic and international trade fairs have been started and forward-looking strategies have been adopted.
