Turkish Pipemaker Market

According to Turkey’s Steel Pipe Manufacturers Association (CEBID), the country’s pipe exports totaled 1.95 million tonnes in 2014, rising by 4.9% when compared with the previous year. It says  that the pipe exports have surged despite political instability in some of the key export markets including Iraq. The value of pipe exports in 2014 amounted to $1.63 billion, declining marginally by 0.7% over the year.

Iraq remained the  first destination of Turkish pipe exports in 2014. The exports totaled 348,715 tonnes during the year,decreased around 20 percent. The second largest export destination was the US with 331,464 tonnes. The exports to the US rose 18% when compared with 2013. In third place was the UK with 240,209 tonnes. Romania is the fourth biggest export destination for Turkey  which is around 128,180 mt.

Steel Casting Cost Factors

Steel Casting Cost Factors

According to  Emcasting company, there are 5 factors that are affecting steel  casting part price

1-Geometry and shape of part

Internal cavities, quantity and thickness of cores, thin walls, long parts, complicated shapes, more than one parting line requirement, non linear parting lines, reverse angles and non symmetrical parts etc. will increase sand casting piece prices.

Mentioned complexities will increase casting defects such as cold lap, core replacement, flash, mismatch, raised core, deformation etc.

2-Alloy and alloying elements

The alloying element(Silicon, manganese, Chromium, Titanium, molybdenum, nickel, niobium and vanadium etc) quantity and tight  standards will also increase the prices.

3-Order quantity,yearly volume,

Low volume means higher pieces prices.

4-Required Mechanical properties and heat treatment

Annealing and normalizing are usual heat treatment of steel parts that are used to homogenizing micro structure and decreasing solidification stresses.

In some cases to achieve required properties, multiple and costly heat treatments are used. 

5-Requested tests according to safety and critical application

ASTM’s nondestructive testing  techniques used to detect and evaluate flaws in materials and objects without destroying the specimen at hand. Such tests include radiographic, ultrasonic, electromagnetic (eddy-current), X-ray, acoustic, and tomographic techniques. These tests are costly and might increase the cost of  steel  casting part price.





Arçelik Tayland’da fabrikası kuruyor

Arçelik, Tayland’da buzdolabı fabrikası kuruyor.

Arçelik, Avrupa ve Afrika’dan sonra Asya’ya da yatırım yapıyor. Tayland’da temeli atılan buzdolabı fabrikasının 2015’te üretime geçmesi için çalışmalara başlandı. Fabrikanın üç yılda 800 bin buzdolabı üretmesi planlanıyor.

 Avrupa, Ortadoğu ve Afrika (EMEA) Bölgesi’nin 2’nci büyük beyaz eşya şirketi olan Arçelik A.Ş.,  Güney Doğu Asya’da üretim merkezi olarak Tayland’ı seçti.
