TÜBİTAK SAGE and Varzene Metal Join Their Forces
Making a speech at the ceremony, Minister Varank stated that they aim to bring new generation alloys with high added value to the country and said, “TÜBİTAK SAGE will transfer its important capabilities in advanced materials engineering to the industry. Using these capabilities, Varzene Metal will add strategically qualified new generation alloys to materials such as titanium, nickel alloys and high-speed steel produced in its facilities in İzmir-Aliağa.”
Pointing out that there is a need for more suitable materials with the developments in the aviation, maritime and space industries, Varank said, “With the development of technology, new generation alloys obtained from different elements and compositions can meet these needs. For example, developing aircraft engines with higher capacities are now possible thanks to materials more resistant to heat and corrosion. In this sense, we, as Turkiye, have taken action to produce new generation alloys, which are strategic materials.”
At the end of the ceremony, TÜBİTAK SAGE Institute Director Gürcan Okumuş and Varzene Metal Chairman of the Board İsmail Demirkaya signed the New Generation Alloy Development Cooperation Protocol.
