The aviation, space, and defence industries are undergoing a period of dramatic dynamism, with many exciting developments in R&D and innovation. Türkiye has been following these developments closely by making huge investments in aviation industry as well as promoting domestic production.
We hear echoes of this dynamism in the lubricant industry; every day we encounter new products developed for cutting-edge aircraft technologies, formulas with enhanced performance, and innovative solutions to meet the demands of the sector.
Drawing attention with its diversified product range and rising consumption trend within the lubricant industry, aviation lubricants deserve a special focus as an element of cooperation and competition among leading companies in the sector. As Lubricant World, we have decided to publish an aviation-themed issue and take an in-depth look at aviation lubricants along with the media partnerships with important consecutive aviation events.
The oil demand of Türkiye's first indigenous and national turbodiesel aviation engine TEI-PD170, which is used in ANKA and AKSUNGUR UAV platforms, is satisfied by Koçak Group. In light of the insights, we acquired from TEI and Koçak Group officials, we draw attention to Türkiye's first domestic and national turbodiesel engine oil, Speedol Aero Ultra Diesel S170. The product is a great example of the impact of domestic and national technologies on the motivation for value-added production.
This issue also features an interview with Mr. Gence Yavaş, Aviation Lubes Area Manager at ExxonMobil, the company that has been in the sky since aviation pioneers the Wright Brothers. The interview includes the company's insightful journey and inspiring history in Türkiye, its experience in the field of aviation and its future goals.
In our article section, Dr. Jinxia Li, Senior Development Engineer at NYNAS tells us about the latest academic findings regarding the use of tribology to optimize grease formulation. In this issue we also share important news regarding the sector, and the event agenda.
