Jerusalem — In recent years,
Israel has been transformed from
a country with a "backward"
economy based on labor intensive
agriculture into a center of high-
tech manufacturing based on
applied research.
The skills for this come from
seven institutions of higher learn-
ing of which the Haifa Technion
and the Hebrew University of
Jerusalem are two. These are
backed by a well-developed voca-
tional high-school system and the
exacting technical training given
to many youngsters during their
compulsory military service.
Because Israel is a small coun-
try, high-tech industry has a
small base, but its range is
breathtaking. The best way to
consider it is to look at some rep-
resentative firms and their out-
standing products.
The Iscar group of companies is
involved in tool production — the
making of capital goods
8 which is the basis of industry.
The group produces carbide drills,
tool-head inserts, toolholders,
cutting materials, etc. as well as
jet-engine and turbine blades,
stainless steel medical implants
and energy-saving equipment.
Kulso of Haifa (a subsidiary of
Kulicke & Soffa of Philadelphia)
manufactures tools for the
printed-circuit industry. Its most
successful product, which re-
ceived the 1983 Rothschild Prize
for Innovation and Development,
is an automatic wire-bonder that
joins micro-electronic filaments
in large-scale integrated circuits.
Kulso is now developing a
silicon-wafer slicer which it hopes
will outsell even the wire-bonder.
Elscint, a developer of medical
diagnostic equipment, specializes
in all five major areas of the medi-
cal imaging market: tomography,
nuclear medicine, ultra-sound
imaging, digitized radiography
and nuclear magnetic resonance
(N.M.R.). One of Israel's most
dynamic companies, it is now
opening branches and marketing
outlets outside Israel.
The unique turbo-generator
devised by Yehuda Bronicki,
founder of the Ormat Turbine
Company, which utilizes a special
organic liquid instead of water
and which needs no maintenance,
has sold in 40 countries. Today,
Ormat- is a major exporter of
energy conversion systems.
Solar ponds were invented in
Israel and advanced solar energy
systems are an Israeli speciality.
So good, are they, that the South-
ern California Edison Company is
installing two separate electricity
generating systems from Israel: a
solar pond generator is being built
by Ormat Turbines and a reflector
'system is being installed by Luz
' Industries of Jerusalem.
Many small companies in other
areas such as mini-computers,
software and fiber-obtics harbor
hopes of emulating the successes
of.Elscint, Ormat and Iscar, and it
seems likely that their hard-
working staffs wjll achieve this.
