Since the day it was founded, Dalgakıran has only made products of its own design and has made this one of its basic principles. The idea of designing its own products led to the formation of the R&D department in line with need generated over the years, technological developments, and company policies. In addition to its duties in the engineering, application, and documentation stages of production, Dalgakıran R&D also supports the development of new products and new technologies and project solutions.


In addition to being responsible for tasks in the engineering, application, and documentation stages of production, Dalgakıran R&D also supports the development of new products and new technologies and project solutions. Today, Dalgakıran Compressor has more than 50 full-time R&D personnel, including experienced designers and technicians with experience and know-how in the field of R&D as well as young engineers with PhD, MSc, and BSc degrees.

Dalgakıran Kompresör’s R&D team has a powerful and dynamic staff and works on machinery that will create not only today’s technology but that of the future, too. In parallel with this approach, the R&D team continues to grow in strength every day by recruiting talents who have made success their watchword and it produces value quickly for Turkey beyond Dalgakıran Kompresör

In new product studies from the idea stage through to mass production, the R&D department carries out all engineering calculations, three-dimensional detail and concept industrial designs, analysis studies, prototype studies, performance tests under severe conditions, acoustic tests, thermal tests, longevity tests, plus electrical and functional tests using the latest software and testing/measuring equipment.

One of the most important reasons for Dalgakıran Kompresör’s rapid development and its prominence in international competition is the strategic importance it attaches to R&D. The investments made by Dalgakıran Kompresör to rapidly keep track of world developments as they happen stem from its passion to create superior machines that produce their own technology and at the highest level of quality. Dalgakıran Kompresör allocates 2% of ifs turnover to R&D spending and is well on its way to achieving its goal of being one of the world’s top five compressor manufacturers by further strengthening its competitive position in the industry.


New products that have been given the project green light following the idea stage are brought to the final design stage by designing the system, selecting the components, and turning industrial concept designs into detailed three-dimensional models. Afterwards, analysis simulation, prototype and test applications are carried out using special digital applications resulting in extremely productive studies and effective results. As a result, the prototype studies yield very quick results and the machines can advance to the testing stage without losing any time.

Just as with the mechanical designs, the product’s electrical plans and control systems are also designed in 2D and 3D using advanced software. The electrical plans are designed according to international norms and the machines are designed to deliver the best performance by implementing all kinds of electrical safety measures. The R&D unit has undertaken the task of meeting customer needs when it comes to machinery design and compressed air systems, and it designs the area where the compressed air systems are going to be installed in perfect realism using 3D software.


Once the product design is finalized, the machines are subjected to computer analyses in many areas before the prototype stage where their performance under working conditions will be evaluated. The advanced analyses carried out here such as structural, fluid, thermal, solid body dynamics, vibration analyses and topology optimisation are vital parts of compressor design. For example, these advanced fluid and thermal analysis are conducted frequently when designing the product’s cooling systems. In addition to this, advanced fluid and structural analyses which take into account operating conditions (because they are going to operate in conditions that require extreme thermal resistance and pressure strength) are made of critical parts that will be subjected to high pressures and temperatures.


Following the thorough Design and Analysis studies, many details are foreseen digitally after which the prototype stage begins. This detailed study conducted using special software and digital programs means fewer problems being encountered at the prototype stage resulting in the prototype stage taking place very productively.

The investments made recently have increased the R&D department’s means to make prototypes in-house meaning that the R&D department largely has the ability to create its own prototypes now.


The performance tests for the prototype machines created after the Design and Analysis studies involve conducting design and analysis verification by taking thermal readings using high-tech thermal cameras. In addition, advanced energy analysers are used to measure and assess the machines’ power and energy consumption performance in detail. The prototypes are put in test chambers built to industrial noise measuring standards where sound readings and noise analyses are carried out in precise detail.

In addition to this, shock and vibration readings are taken at critical points and the data obtained is analysed using special software. Performance Tests, Acoustic Tests, Vibration Tests, Temperature Tests, Pressure Tests
