Company profile

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.
