Zumbach Electronic AG
ZUMBACH Electronic AG, founded by Bruno Zumbach in 1957, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of on-line and off-line measuring, monitoring and control systems.
Our key markets include industries manufacturing hot and cold steel, non-ferrous metal, wire, cable, plastic and rubber products. ZUMBACH develops and markets industrial solutions and services for non-contact and continuous measurement and monitoring of diameter, ovality, roundness, wall thickness, eccentricity/concentricity, shape contours and dimensional accuracy, as well as products to detect defective surfaces. To achieve ideal solutions that offer optimum price-performance ratio, Zumbach uses cutting-edge technologies such as lasers, laser light section technique, linear sensor LEDs, X-rays, ultrasonic, eddy current measurement and sophisticated optics. Numerous patents are testament to our pragmatic industrial solutions.
From the very beginning, the company founder recognised the growing demand for non-contact measurement techniques in industry and increasingly placed the laser at the centre of his complex systems. The STEELMASTER SMR series, for example, in particular provides rolling mills with unrivalled measurement characteristics thanks to revolutionary laser rotation technology and the unique contactless transmission of power and measuring signals. Other milestones for use in hot rolling mills as well as cold processes are our profile measurement systems, marketed under the PROFILEMASTER® brand. Complete cross-sections can be detected and measured simultaneously using this modern measuring technique.
Many years of experience in a range of market segments and technologies combined with the application knowledge this has provided, allow us to develop genuinely custom solutions. The use of high-precision measurement systems, often in very harsh ambient conditions, has resulted in “robust design” products with very high MTBF factors that have been in use around the world for many decades.
Thanks to partnerships and joint projects with research institutions and technical universities, ZUMBACH is always on the cutting edge. And with our local sales and service organisations, assisted by a large number of representatives, we are always close to our customers.
