As of 2013, our company has carried out modernization operations in accordance with the new technology in all of its production lines and thus further increased its capacity and quality. In our renewed metal sheet press line, stainless steel, galvanized, aluminum and high hardness metal sheets are precisely produced with drivers from 25 tons to 250 tons, and with manual feeding system on eccentric presses from 0.5mm to 5mm. In the presses from 65 tons up to 500 tons, by compression, transfer and injection methods, rotary shaft seal being in the first place, sealing and vibration absorber elements with rubber and metal, plastic or PTFE components are produced. Rubber mixtures used in the sealing products are produced within our structure with SKT quality fully automatically. More than 4.000 different products are produced with high efficiency and quality in the cells that are designed by the most suitable methods for customer needs.
The SKT, which is the first firm in Turkey to produce oil seals using synthetic rubber, is also developing itself the recipes of all rubber blends it used. Tests according to ASTM Norms and Customer Specifications are carried out in its own laboratory. It has developed more than 2000 approved rubber blends in the laboratory and production line with all the necessary equipment for the production and tests of rubber used in the industry. With more than 50 years of experience in the field of rubber, SKT continues to support its customers with material R&D department by developing the most innovative and functional rubber blends. In addition, the rubber blends developed by the material R&D department are statistically checked and approved according to the material specifications.
With its 64 years of experience in the sector, SKT makes in-house designs of its products and molds. SKT uses various sophisticated design and simulation programs in product design and development. Various researches related to the products are being carried out at SKT R&D center, such as design development and advanced sealing technologies development.
All the necessary measurements are made at all stages of production starting from the entry of raw material into the factory. In the Measurement Laboratory there are 3D and 2D measurement equipment, which is capable of performing all measurements required for the products. In addition, performance tests of the products such as sealing, vibration, mud tests are also conducted at the product testing center, by simulating the conditions of the place of use in accordance with costumer requests.
