The sudden outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic has caused many companies to switch their production to personal protective equipment (PPE) for medical staff and citizens. So did Sarem, a plastic pipe extrusion line manufacturer, with ABB’s and project partner Halici’s support.
Sarem Makina pipe extrusion lines
Sarem is one of the largest manufacturers for plastic pipe extrusion lines in Turkey. With its base in Istanbul and around 80 employees, the company focuses on machinery for PP, PE, PVC, PPR-C, Corrugated, Drip Irrigation, PEX-A and Multilayer Pipes & Injection Molds for fittings. Over the years, Sarem has installed more than 300 pipe extrusion lines in 40 countries for all sorts of industrial, commercial and residential applications.
Sarem uses a growing number of ABB components like PLCs, HMIs, motors and low voltage products. The company decided to use ABB products because they offer superior control – this is a real USP in the highly competitive pipe market: When everyone is focusing on low costs, low energy consumption, low maintenance requirements and fast production, very precise control of the machine and the process are essential success factors. ABB makes this possible.
