It is predicted that the Hydraulic and Pneumatic technologies sector, which exports to all continents in the world, especially to Europe and America, has reached a market size of 560 million Euros in Turkey. The sector, which employs over 10 thousand people, exports very high amounts of semi-finished products and finished products to foreign markets, while adding added value by assembling imported products on machines and exporting them to world markets again. The industry, which produces energy-efficient and cost-reducing environmental technologies for dozens of business lines, is preparing to come together at the HPKON - National Hydraulic Pneumatics Congress and Fair, which will be held in Izmir on 16-19 November 2022.
Fluid power technologies, which aim to bring together information technologies and the industry, are environmentally friendly and cost-effective, providing high energy efficiency, for dozens of sectors from automotive to defense, from machinery manufacturing to iron and steel and construction machinery, from robotics to food, packaging, shipbuilding, health, dams and automation. offers cutting-edge technological solutions. The industry, which has gained momentum with the spread of Industry 4.0 and the digitalization process, is preparing to come together at the HPKON – National Hydraulic Pneumatics Congress and Fair, which will be held at MMO Tepekule Congress and Exhibition Center in Izmir between 16-19 November 2022, after a long break.
HPKON CONTRIBUTES TO INCREASING INDUSTRY AWARENESS
HPKON will host the National Hydraulic Pneumatics Congress, which will be held under the leadership of the Izmir Branch of the Chamber of Mechanical Engineers of TMMOB, in 2022, just like every year it is held. Speaking before HPKON 2022, AKDER-Fluid Technologies Association Chairman of the Board Osman Türdü, pointed out that this year, digitalization and energy efficiency will come to the fore at HPKON. Stating that they, as AKDER, have been a supporter of the National Hydraulic Pneumatics Congress and Fair for many years, Türydu said, simultaneously with the Congress, Hannover Fairs Turkey Fuarcılık A.Ş. In the fair organized by; He said that the products and services of domestic and foreign companies and their representatives operating in the field of Hydraulics, Pneumatics, Automation and Software will be included and "HPKON contributes to increasing awareness in the sector by means of announcing new products, new solutions and new partnerships." said.
THE TURKISH MARKET IS ESTIMATED TO EXCEED 560 MILLION EURO LEVELS
Expressing that the Hydraulic and Pneumatic technologies, or in other words, fluid technologies sector, has a market size of 50 billion Euros worldwide, AKDER President Osman Türdü said, “Although we do not have clear figures, since we are a sector that offers technological solutions to dozens of business lines, the Turkish market has exceeded the level of 560 million Euros. we guess. We meet a large part of the domestic market with imported products and some with domestic products. Many of our manufacturers in Turkey also export a lot of semi-finished products or finished products to the foreign markets of this sector. Again, the imported products are mounted on machines and exported to the world markets with added value. Our industry sells to all markets of the world. We export to every continent in the world, especially to Europe and America. In short, our target is all world markets.”
ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND DIGITALIZATION WILL BE TALKED
Expressing that HPKON – National Hydraulic Pneumatics Congress and Fair will bring together all the components of the industry under the same roof for the 9th time this year, Yunus Yener, President of TMMOB Chamber of Mechanical Engineers and Chairman of the Hydraulic Pneumatics Congress Organizing Committee, said, “We will have a long time to our ninth congress due to the pandemic. We had to take a break. Even though we went through an unusual and difficult process, we prepared for our congress with the same excitement as on the first day. This year, we will again create a dynamic platform at our Congress with the opening conference, papers, workshops, courses, panels, roundtables, conferences and forums. Many manufacturers will participate in HPKON 2022 Fair, which will be held simultaneously with our congress, and will exhibit their applications within the scope of Industry 4.0. Hannover Fairs Turkey Fairs Inc. HPKON is a very important meeting platform where the present and future of the industry is discussed and exhibited.”
WE ARE IN A NEW ERA WITH DEVELOPMENTS LIKE LEARNING ROBOTS
Pointing out that the agenda of the Congress is energy efficiency and digitalization this year, and that the industry is developing and evolving in this direction, Hydraulic Pneumatics Congress Organizing Committee Chairman Yunus Yener said, “The fluid power industry is not only in our country, but all over the world, taking place in production areas through control and automation technologies. It is among the application areas where it can produce services. It is a sector that can easily produce original solutions and projects with high added value, with its interdisciplinary nature such as mechanics, electronics, data processing and programming. We are now in a new era, with developments such as smart devices and learning robots, where technological developments, including software engineering, enable innovative designs and solutions. On the other hand, we are on the verge of a major energy crisis worldwide. Many countries are calculating how to keep their factories open this winter in the short term. Considering that the Hydraulic and Pneumatics industry produces less costly and environmentally friendly technologies that provide energy efficiency, the importance of HPKON, which brings together all the components of the industry, will be better understood. “He said.
HPKON IS A VERY IMPORTANT COMMERCIAL PLATFORM FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF NEW BUSINESS CONNECTIONS
Expressing that they hope HPKON 2022, which we realized together with TMMOB MMO and AKDER, will accelerate the sector this year as in previous years, Hannover Fairs Turkey Fairs General Manager Annika Klar said, “We have accompanied the development of Eurasia's leading industrial fair WIN EURASIA. The fluid technologies sector is a very important stakeholder that supports all other main sectors. It continues to develop rapidly in Turkey. At this point, it is obvious that the HPKON Congress and Fair has a great importance. This year, the event, which will include applications within the scope of Industry 4.0, creates a very important commercial platform not only in terms of following the innovations in the sector, but also in terms of establishing new business connections.”
VISITORS WILL DISCOVER INNOVATIVE PRODUCTS AND TECHNOLOGIES FIRST HAND AT THE FAIR
Klar continued as follows: “HPKON National Hydraulic Pneumatics Congress, which will be supported by workshops and trainings that will last for four days, will bring together engineers, technical personnel, academics, companies and industry associations. While the present and future of the industry will be discussed at the HPKON National Hydraulic Pneumatics Congress, where scientific and technological developments in the use and application areas of hydraulic and pneumatic systems can be closely experienced, visitors will have the opportunity to discover the most innovative products and technology at first hand in the fair we will organize under the organization of Hannover Fairs Turkey.
