Almesan Alüminyum, since its establishment, it has focused to intensive works on the production of new products, their introduction to the market and the application of innovative production techniques that are alternative to existing production techniques.

As a result of these, the Research and Development Center , which started in 2018 on the basis of ideas, have become one of the strategic moves of 2019, and Almesan has decided of a new physical investment.

The concept of R&D is the result of human beings’ efforts to improve their own conditions, not only in business life, but also in a search and learning desire at all stages of life.

Almesan Alüminyum has made its research and development studies one of the main processes of the management system and has defined the concept of R&D together with the concepts of innovation and efficiency. Almesan Aluminum has set three strategic goals:

  • Spreading the sustainable research and development culture throughout the company
  • Promoting a training-based system that will increase the personal development and competence of employees
  • Decision making mechanism based on measurable, accurate and reliable process data

Almesan Innovation and Productivity Headquarter (IVME) has been shaped by these three concepts that meet on the basis of innovation and productivity.

Almesan Alüminyum’s R &D Strategies and Goals

  • Developing new manufacturing technologies / processes with the goal of high quality and low cost
  • Developing products that locally cannot be produced, by use of different raw materials and by developing new processes.
  • Creating business value based on intellectual property with original, innovative and value-added product and process designs
  • Increasing the contribution to the financial performance of Almesan Alüminyum as a result of R&D and innovation
  • Giving priority to R&D studies of products with high added value in export items
  • Developing the University-Industry cooperation model and ensuring the continuity of cooperation
  • Carrying out successful studies in newly developed projects in accordance with internationally accepted R&D standards, by providing the necessary support criteria
  • Taking part in national and international supported projects,
  • Developing product, process and manufacturing methods to meet the needs of group companies by carrying out joint projects with Selçuklu Holding


Because of Almesan Alüminyum has two different continuous casting technologies, it has the advantage of responding to different demands of its customers by creating an alternative. Customer-specific alloy design and design of mechanical properties are carried out. For the first time in Türkiye, the production of 6xxx series plates by continuous casting was carried out by Almesan Alüminyum.



R&D studies are carried out on the production techniques and processes of the Almesan Alüminyum product range, which convert into products reaching the end consumer at the customers’ facilities. Processes that will produce more efficient, environmental-friendly and low carbon footprints are among the priorities of Almesan Alüminyum. Joint studies are also carried out on alternative production techniques with customers. Alternative production and reuse of specific consumables used in production processes are other important process R&D studies.



Special alloys take priority in terms of mechanical strength in the use of aluminum in the automotive, defense and aerospace sectors, which are gaining more importance today. R&D studies are carried out to design these alloys, to create production processes and to convert them into products requested by customers. By bracket parts and technical slugs made of 6xxx series alloys for the automotive industry, more than 50% operational advantage has been achieved in the process stages of customers’ businesses.


Measurement and Evaluation

Almesan Alüminyum uses monitoring, measurement and evaluation methods in all its R&D and Innovation studies. The chemical composition is determined by the spectrometer device in the laboratory. Mechanical properties are determined with a multi-purpose tensile-compression tester and hardness tester. As a result of material studies, pre-sample studies are carried out in the prototype laboratory in order to measure the effect of correct conditioning and the performance of the final product.

Detailed analyzes are carried out by the microscope for the analysis of the behavior of the materials after each production process and the changes in the grain structures.
