We have the pleasure to introduce you TÜLOMSAS, the only locomotive supplier of Turkey with a longstanding and vast experience in manufacturing and maintenance .Started as a small workshop in 1894 as a maintenance and repair workshop for locomotives .As an affiliated company of the Turkish Railways, TÜLOMSAS has been responding to all the locomotive and wagon needs of Turkey for more than a century. Throughout the years it developed to a heavy industrial biggest and modern locomotive and freight car manufacturer of the Middle East and the Balkans and underwent a new identity in 1986 as the Turkish Locomotive and Engine Industrie Inc.
With its 7 production plants, almost 2000 distinguished and qualified staff, 500.000 m² available land of which 176.000 m² is used for production is TÜLOMSAS a giant organisation.With an annual production capacity of 60 locomotives, 10 railway maintenance cars, 500 bogie freight cars, 100 various type diesel engines, 100 alternators, 400 traction motors and 2500 tonnes steel and iron castings can TÜLOMSAS be regarded as the locomotive of the Turkish heavy industry.
The locomotive factory, which is the largest plant in TÜLOMSAS is capable to carry out the manufacture of bogie, underframe and hoods of various type diesel-electric, diesel-hydraulic and electrical mainline and shunting locomotives ranging from 360 to 4300 HP and maintenance cars, complete assembly, painting and testing, as well as maintenance and revision of these vehicles.
Diesel engines of 2400 HP are manufactured in the Engine Factory. Additionally maintenance, repair and spare part production for this engine and other diesel engines of various type and power are performed in this factory. The Engine Factory has a well-endowed machine park consisting of different types of CNC lathes and machining centers.
Traction motors used in locomotives with a power up to 530 kW are produced in the Electrical Machinery Factory. Production of alternators, control cabinets, cabling and impregnation works are realised in this factory.
Manufacture, maintenance and revision of various type freight cars are accomplished in the Wagon Factory. Main manufactured wagon types are as follows: Sliding Wall Wagons, Tank Wagons, Borax Carrying Wagons, Container Carrier Wagons, Ore Wagons, Hopper Wagons, Slab and Tank Carrier Wagons. The Wagon Factory has a loaded machine park, including CNC laser cutting machines and CNC hydraulic press.
The Foundry and Chemical Process Factory has an annual casting capacity of 2500 tonnes. In addition tempering, annealing, case hardening, nitrating and induction hardening works are performed in the Heat Treatment Section, chrom, nickel, silver, zinc coating and phosphating are made in the Coating Section.
Our quality management system controls and optimizes all our production lines. In order to achieve this objective in the most effective manner we have organised our corporate structure to conform with the requirements of the ISO 9001-2000 standards owing this Quality Management System since 1997.
The Quality Control Department involves the chemical laboratory where chemical analysis are handled with care, the destructive test laboratory where tests such as tensile, stress, hardness tests are performed, the non-destructive test laboratory where ultrasonic, magnaflux, x-ray similar test equipments are used. All measuring and testing equipments are periodically calibrated by the Quality Control Department. Dimensional, geometrical all kind of of gear measures are taken via QUINDOS measuring program in the ventilated special chember of the three-coordinated sensitive measuring device.
We have experience for over a century building locomotives within the scope of the existing licence agreement and technology of international trade marks like GM, Toshiba, Krauss-Maffei, MTU and Semt Pielstick .In 1994 the studies on new locomotive and freight car projects, as well as their development to increase the local production came out and new shunting locomotive concepts of its own design were launched into the market. From now on, intensive efforts on innovative improvements for the production of Light Rail System, tramcar and subway vehicles are performed with optimum care in the Research and Development Department. Currently TÜLOMSAS is strengthening its position in the locomotive production market by exporting its products especially to the Middle East.
TÜLOMSAS manufactured tank carrying wagons and tank wagons for the Defense Industry. With an experience over a century TÜLOMSAS regards it as national duty and is capable to handle all the demands of the Turkish Defense Industry.. Also the high power diesel engines which TÜLOMSAS produces for locomotives are suitable for use in battle tanks, military and non-military vessels.
. The load that is transported with a only one locomotive can be transported with nearly 100 trucks. Thus, it is clear that railway transportation has a great influence on the state economy as well as on environment and traffic. So far, TÜLOMSAS contributed much to the railway transportation and Turkish economy with its productions of about 700 locomotives and about 7500 freight cars
TÜLOMSAS with its advanced technological productions, high production capacity and qualified staff is meeting and will meet the needs of the national railways. TÜLOMSAS will continue to increase its export capacity and shall persist on being a powerful enterprise within the Turkish heavy industry.
