With the acceptance of the Ministry of Science and Industry and Technology's Approved R & D Center Certificate in 2011, Akım Metal Company started to work on electric motor field. In the recent years we have chosen a field that we are dependent on foreign countries; permanent magnet synchronous motors which have been used in advanced technological products. In this context, we started to do first works with reference to the industrial automation applications. We have continued to work with various TUBITAK supplements and our works attracted the attention of the defense industry, which is in great need of such engines.
The work of Akım Metal's defense industry started with the subcontracting of Aselsan 'ın servomotor design and production. After the work with Aselsan, Roketsan started to develop joint projects with other defense industry firms and institutes such as TUBITAK SAGE and made serious infrastructure investments in order to reduce the foreign dependency of our country especially in defense industry.
Setting high targets to itself at the beginning of the electric motor work, Akım Metal started to do the early works with the newly formed core team. While taking in new projects in this matter Akım Metal expanded the team due to the rising needs. Akım Metal strengthens it team with experienced engineers and technicians. The impact of increased demands and recent years of nationalization projects is great.
Mechatronics department is continuing to work on development of electric motors and prototype production processes. It contains a lot of basic software, equipment, measuring equipment, test systems needed for engine design, analysis and production. Team members' competence, motivation and infrastructure capabilities continue to increase day by day in order to make electric motor technology more advanced in our country.
