OUR R&D CENTRE
We are growing with R&D studies based on quality, sustainability and innovation. We have completed an important step that will accelerate our work for value-added products, innovative methods and many projects that will add value to the future. We have been entitled to receive the R&D Center Certificate from the Turkish Ministry of Industry and Technology. We continue to research and produce in our R&D Center for a better future together.
The mission of the R&D Center is to ensure and sustain the maximum product quality at low cost, to ensure energy and production efficiency, to continue studies on machine modernization and green energy transformations for Industry 4.0, and most importantly, to design new products with added value. As the R&D department, it works on design and product development jointly with automotive and other customers, which make up the majority of its customer portfolio. Çetin Cıvata R&D team, by meeting one-on-one with the R&D and Technical teams of the customers, carries out projects for the manufacturability, quality improvement and sustainability of new special products. Issues related to increasing production performance and quality are discussed with the teams at daily GEMBA meetings, problems are evaluated and solutions are found.
The R&D team carefully manages the product development process from RFQ to final product delivery by examining the cost effectiveness and feasibility, realizing the commissioning of the new product, designing, simulating and monitoring the production process after creating a prototype. In addition, it works on process improvements by taking into account the feedback of its customers. We attach great importance to quality management when commissioning new fasteners. Products are carried out by the project team with PPAP / PPF, FMEA, APQP, MSA, SPC and 8-D quality management systems.
Çetin Cıvata R&D Center has a strong engineering and technical team with qualified expertise that conducts intensive studies and researches on various technical evaluation solutions in accordance with the design system and world standards in order to shape the future of all kinds of fasteners. However, he can perform tests in his laboratories, including mechanical, metallurgical and corrosion tests. It constantly improves itself in product and mold design, mold manufacturing, material selection, manufacturing processes. It supports the studies to increase the efficiency of mold life with simulation programs using finite element method.
Our center follows the literature researches and developments in the sector and adapts them to its own structure. We support undergraduate, graduate and doctoral theses with our international and national university collaborations, and with industry and university collaborations, we carry out projects based on simulations and experimental studies to improve the quality of products and increase the service life of the materials used.
