Zumbach. How To Measure Quality.

ZUMBACH ELECTRONICS is one of the leading manufacturer of in-line measuring, monitoring and control systems for the wire and cable industry, (from wire drawing to fiber optics, including extrusion of insulation and jackets), for plastic extrusion lines (mono filaments, catheter, tubing, pipe or profiles) and for the metal industry (hot and cold rolling, continuous casting, turning, grinding, polishing to QC inspection stations).

ZUMBACH instruments measure diameter (Laser Micrometers), wall thickness and concentricity (ultrasonic or eddy current principle), and detect lumps/neckdowns (optical flaw detectors). Specialized sensors monitor the capacitance of data wires and coaxial cables. - Controllers with application specific algorithms shorten start-up times, minimize scrap production and material usage. Data acquisition and FFT analysis are offered as well. A line of inductive preheaters for metal conductors, spark testers for in-line testing of the dielectric, optical surface inspection system, and in-line profile monitoring systems complete the ZUMBACH line of industrial precision equipment.

Quality by Tradition for 60 years
Zumbach Electronic, founded in 1957 by Bruno Zumbach, is an international privately owned group of companies and a leading manufacturer of in-line measuring and control equipment for wire, cable, plastics, rubber, steel and metals.

Zumbach is a pioneer in in-line measurement systems, based on various technologies, such as laser, ultrasonics, x-rays, etc. and holds a number of international patents and trademarks.

Bruno Zumbach is chairman of the executive committee. The managing directorship of the Zumbach group has passed to his son Rainer Zumbach. Zumbach has a record of 60 years of continuous ownership, growth and product development, always with priority on quality and customer satisfaction.

Today, the Zumbach group comprises 11 companies in Europe, United States, South America and Asia. All Zumbach companies offer expert sales and customer support facilities in the respective language, and fully equipped service and spare part facilities. Manufacturing and R&D centers are in Switzerland and the United States. In addition, there are over 40 Zumbach representatives in many industrial countries at the service of industry.
