1.500 bogies produced by Kayserili Railtur on European rails

Railtur bogie has become productive. Now, Railtur's 1.500 bogies are spinning in Europe's railways.
Halis Turgut, who could not make an appointment in a short period of time, found himself in the railway sector.
Halis Turgut, who entered the railway sector as he could not find a company that would produce a cistern wagon he needed while carrying out oil transportation, also became a bogie with his company called Railtur. Railtur 1.500 bogie bogie which carries out the first exports from Turkey in Europe now turning demirağ. They were not able to respond to the need for wagons in their own transport companies from the wagons working at full capacity at that time; Haltur Turgut, General Manager of Railtur Wagon Industry AŞ, who stated that they were robbed of cistern wagon production to meet their needs, stated that they continue their activities as a successful company in this field.
Explaining that they have achieved a first in the history of the Republic by exporting their different production, Halis Turgut said: “This is another source of pride for us. We have an international shipping company called Transtur, which carries oil transportation. We needed a cistern wagon here, but we couldn't find a company that could meet our needs. When we started work in 2006, the capacities of other wagon manufacturers were full. This returned to us as an advantage. Foreign companies were looking for alternatives, and we agreed with them. Accordingly, we have made certain standards necessary. We took European standards and brought them here. In order to meet the needs of the industry, we developed products that have advantages with brand new designs. We were founded with our own capital and we continue to grow. ”
Turgut said that bringing every new technology has some burdens, but they have managed to become an exemplary company with their work, and said, “When we first started production, we were sleeping with the companies. Because we were not a brand, they did not know us. Our technology was good, our production was good, but we increased the warranty period, which is normally 24 months, to 48 months to build trust. We continuously worked by adding our night to our day, we constantly renewed our technology. We proved our brand and quality. We now provide a 24-month warranty period. Firms comply with us since an atmosphere of trust is created. We have produced a completely different product in the Turkish industry. The products we produce are used in Europe as the Turkish brand. ” In addition to the cistern wagon in its product range, Turgut said that TÜBİTAK-supported products also include 'bogie' and noted that they achieved the first in this field by using the bogies they produced in Europe. Turgut said, “In addition to the tanker wagons we produce, we also produce bogies that are one of the moving parts under the freight wagons. There are over 1.500 Turkish bogies circulating in Europe. Our product bogie was deemed worthy to be supported by TÜBİTAK and 30 percent of our work was supported. We developed this product in 2010. Now our new projects
there is. The most important factor in transportation is to carry high loads. We can carry 95 kilos of cargo with our Zacns type 65-cubic meter cistern we have produced. We plan to increase the load carrying capacity with the new cistern wagon weighing lighter (empty wagon). With the new wagon, we will be able to carry 500 thousand kilos more cargo, so the carrying capacity will be 3 thousand 68 kilograms. We are planning to manufacture this wagon, which is currently in the design phase, in the first quarter of 500. Our R&D studies on this matter continue. ”
Emphasizing that they are working on more than one product in the field of new products, Turgut emphasized that other projects will also be the solution to the freight transfer problems in transportation. We also have this kind of problems that developing countries now have a system in accordance with the conditions used in a similar America will bring to Turkey. The trailer to be used in this system can be used both as a road vehicle and a rail vehicle, in this case, the product can be transported from the point where it is loaded to the end customer without any transfer. This transportation system does not have a very difficult technology, but it will have many contributions to our country. We plan to realize this project by the end of next year. ”
We aim to export 2013 million lira in 35
Turgut, who gives general information about his companies, said, “We are currently operating in our factory, which has 30 thousand square meters of open space and 7 square meters of closed area, with our 500 employees. We currently export our products to European countries. Turkey also could come into line with the demand from the domestic market can offer our services. Our 150 export figure is around 2011 million lira. Our exports for the first six months of 20 are 2012 million liras, and we expect our exports to be 6 million liras at the end of 2012 as our production has slowed down due to the impact of the economic contraction in Europe. In 15, we aim to export 2013 million lira. In addition, we produce all the cistern wagons we produce except wheel and brake. "
The Railway is the Battle of Çanakkale for this country
Emphasizing the importance of railways for the country, Halis Turgut said, “The railroad is worth it for this country. Because wars are no longer done with a rifle. People create weapons with the products they develop, by offering their products to the markets and by constantly improving. Developments in the railway industry affect the country's industry. Transportation investments constitute the biggest item of the 2023 targets set by the government. If the transportation of the loads in our country is transferred very cheaply, the increasing resources can be evaluated in many different ways for the development of our country. In addition, the 40-45 year life of the railway vehicle is more than the highway vehicle. If we can pull 75% of the transportation share on the highways with the cistern wagons we produce, we will have a great contribution to our developing country. ”
We have supplied over 100 600 welders to Kayseri industry
Stating that they are one of the first companies that have international certification in metal arc welding in Kayseri, General Manager Halil Turgut said, “We also train workers together with İş-Kur in our company, which is also a school. While we train 25-30 welders in a month, only 2-3 welders are left to us. We are also happy because we brought the rest to Kayseri Industry. Because the work done by an employee who knows the work is not one with the product made by the person who does not know. ”
