Harting is a company known for its quality, long life and tough environment conditions. As a seamstress, it focuses on customer needs and incorporates new products into its portfolio. We can add the products included in our portfolio under four headings. The first one is the Han 68 HPR EasyCon, which is part of our EMC compliant Han HPR housing series, which is capable of working under water (IP24) and resistant to chemicals such as abrasive salt and acid. 350Amper and 650Amper offer 4000V contacts and CER and motor connections.

Rail Systems, especially in our country in the year 10 increased the weight, large projects follow each other. What are the positive and negative aspects of being in such an important area?

As a company that provides serious service to the rail transportation sector, we have the same responsibilities. existing rail vehicle production in Turkey and for signaling a new start and really should be the safety, quality and standards related to longevity is not yet fully formed. This is a shortcoming. So we have to make these informations. We have to create this culture in the academic sense. Otherwise, we can face serious losses at a place and time we did not expect.
The plus aspect is the hunger and motivation of the sector on this issue. If we keep this motivation at a high level, we can create a value-added and export-oriented structure in the future.

The Harting brand really gives confidence to people who use it.
What are the challenges in the Rail Systems sector? In order to overcome these difficulties, what kind of progress should be made in the state channel and in company?
The biggest challenge in the industry is the lack of standards and transparency. Of course it is not right to enter into high expectation in a new developing sector but the game also needs to play according to the rules. We need to move our understanding of quality, comfort and security abroad, at least in the meantime. By keeping the level of transparency at the highest level, it is necessary to bring together all the people, institutions and NGOs that will contribute to this sector. We need to review the clustering definitions and keep them operational. However, if we do so, it can be the locality and export orientation that is vital for our country.
products used in rail systems in Turkey have sufficient hardware from a technological point? What kind of R & D studies do you draw your service quality?
Although there are shortcomings, our country has slowly got the necessary technological equipment. Producer companies use the necessary equipment for post-production testing. These show that we are about to enter the rail.
Our company 8 carries out R & D activities in different locations. Through our accredited laboratories, we carry out all necessary tests within our organization. Our R & D team collects real information, requests and complaints from the field in a pool and makes innovation, development and correction. The way we work is sometimes comparable to that of a tailor. Through the CRM software that we use within the company, we make it continuously traceable. Thus, we keep the customer-oriented service quality at the highest level.
