Electromechanical screw jacks are becoming increasingly relevant in hydraulic steel construction. ZIMM’s transmission technology regulates the opening and closing of sluice and weir gate plates, thus ensuring the controlled drainage of excess water during floods.
The components from ZIMM can be used in power plants and for channel regulation as well. They are responsible for the mobility of baffle flaps, which are used to control the flow rate.
“As a single-source supplier of screw jacks and motor technology, ZIMM is the ideal partner for projects in hydraulic steel construction,” says Michael Aberer, sales representative for western Austria and South Tyrol. “Most recently, a customer from the DACH region used our gearboxes in a project for the construction of water protection panels in a double contactor system.”
At the same time, a homogeneous surface and the robust construction of screw jacks were not the only decision-making criteria. The possibility of individual customisation also significantly contributed towards convincing the customer.
The product configurator, which is available online, is easy to use even without programming knowledge. Using it, ZIMM screw jacks can be selected quickly and conveniently with just a click of the mouse according to the customer’s requirements. It also makes data exchange extremely easy and guarantees 100% correspondence between the 3D data and the finished product.
It was precisely this congruence which was one of the decisive factors for ZIMM being awarded the contract, and the customer’s satisfaction with the end product.
