Electric was founded in 1990 in Adapazari. Within a short time it has made
progress and took its place among the leading Low Voltage Circuit Breaker
manufacturers in the world. It was founded with 100% national capital in a
total area of 40,000 sqm, out of which 25,000 sqm is covered area.
company’s product range includes 3250 products. Federal Electric currently
manufactures 95% of the LV circuit breaker products range, and continues its
R&D activities related to the remaining 5%. As a consequence of its close
follow-up of the recent developments in any area from institutionalization to
technological innovations, it has received its prize by becoming No. 1 and 2 in
the market. Federal Electric is the only Turkish company which has a share in the
low voltage products market and was listed in No. 1 and 2 in the market.
R&D, Electronic R&D and Electrical R&D works are carried out in
three departments, in coordination with each other. At R&D department,
using Silicon Graphics and Uni Graphics which are among the most sophisticated
computer systems and CAD-CAM software in the world, high quality goods are
designed and prepared for manufacture by the engineers and designers, who are
specialised and experienced in their field, in a way to respond to today’s and
tomorrow’s needs with the technology of future. All parts of the products
designed and finally formed at the R&D department are produced as
prototypes by Federal Electric. Mechanical design of the products are prepared
in computer environment, their contact pressure, 3D mechanism design and
tolerance simulations are made and checked, and then prototypes of these
products are prepared and visual checks are made. Following that, the designs
are transferred through the network to Charmillse wire erosion and CNC benches
located at the die shop and their moulds are prepared. After casting moulds,
first products are manufactured. Samples produced from these parts undergo
mechanical (pulling, break, hardness, friction, etc.) and electrical (short
circuit, thermal and magnetic opening, etc.) tests. Products with successful
test results are ready for mass production.
products manufactured in compliance with international standards are tested at
the laboratories equipped with the state-of-the-art test systems, including
short circuit tests, using modern test devices. Our product line include
compact type circuit breakers from 16A to 2500A, open type switches from 630A
to 5000A, cam switches, loadbreak switches and switch fuses, vertical and horizontal
load disconnectors, NH fuse bases, automatic fuses, fault current protection
switches,contactors, compensation contactors, high current contactors,
semiconductor contactors, installation contactors, thermal relays, capacitors,
motor protection switches, meters, various meter and command relays and
reactive power control relays, current transformers, power analyzers, over
current relays, distribution panels, busbar systems, multitariff electronic
energy meters, combined meters, gas and water meters. Moreover, Electrical
Automatic Heating Systems are manufactured for Turkish Railway Car industry.
Electric carried its systematic development to international standards in 1994
and is listed among the first 70 institutions which hold ISO 9000 certificates.
Our company was awarded with the Quality Prize at the 1st International
Technology-Quality and Manufacturing Systems Congress on account of being a
company that implements TS-EN- 9000 quality assurance system perfectly.Federal
Group follows up the worldwide developments continuously and makes major
investment in R&D; and as a consequence, it holds Industrial Design and
Patent registrations in Turkey and worldwide for approximately 100 products.
processes from the starting point to the end of the production (from raw
materials and product stocks to finished product stocks) are checked by the ERP
software and barcode system. ERP software installed in 1995, as a first in
Turkey, ensures ISO 9001 standard compliant traceability,thus reduces recording
and counting errors in warehouses below 0.5. Besides, in order to avoid
needless waste of paper, all communication is made via electronic media.
Employment process is based on the principle of “person appropriate for the
task”, and since 1995 it is performed according to the results of
psycho-technical tests. With 6-month intervals, 360 degree proficiency based
performance evaluation is applied to all personnel. And as a consequence of
this test, skills of the personnel are determined, and required training
programs for ceaseless improvement are prepared.
