Our customers

The conventional products of Zoz in the field of mechanical process engineering find customers mostly limited to Europe with some exceptions in particular in the Americas, China and Africa. This is because there is competition out there and Germany in general is neither a very cost-effective nor a very easy manufacturing place for conventional equipment and insofar in particular because these products are of relatively high weight- and volume- cost ratios, in other words compared to the cost, the equipment is large and heavy and therefore transportation cost do play a significant role.
In the field of high kinetic processing (MA, HEM, RM), transportation cost are no important issue since the same relation in this field is very high. In fact, a single liter process-chamber-volume of a high kinetic processing device is equivalent to about 1000 liters volume of conventional grinding or mixing equipment with respect to the process-chamber-volume. In case that processing can be comparable at all, then the process-performance indeed is proportionately higher and far exceeding.
Since these products are additionally unique at no direct competition, we find customers all over the world, where it is needed and interesting. The “interesting” guides to R&D and education and in fact this is country wise the widest distributed customer group.Advanced materials, due to shortage of natural resources (materials plus energy), due to miniaturization and simply due to advanced manufacturing and products are major goals in any kind of industry. We can grow everything but not the planet and insofar this rule will remain for the next hundred years. Therefore, in commercial applications, we can find our customers likewise in any area. So in Electronic, Automotive-, Aerospace, Chemical-, Ceramic-, Pharmaceutical-, Medical, Food-, Metal- and Hard-Metal, Armament-, Energy- industry etc.Always in case of high performance and so in high performance materials, Armament and Aerospace represent the cutting-edge. E. g. any specific weight-saving by light-weight materials for a civil rocket or a military jet-fighter does represent a hundred times higher value than for a civil aircraft and e. g. for such passenger-jet in the air the same weight-saving represents again a hundred times higher value that for a vehicle in the street.

In summary by examples, our highly appreciated customers might be concluded as:

  • global automotive, Toyota, Opel/GM…
  • global energy, MCP, Hydro, Martin…
  • US-defense, Army, Lockheed, Los Alamos, Oakridge
  • global education & science, more than 100
  • European ceramic, Cerdec, Schunk, Miele, Tyrolit…more than 25
  • global electronic, Siemens, Panasonic, Sumitomo…
  • European dental, Espe, Vita, Ivoclar Vivadent…
  • global chemical, Bayer, Degussa, Honeywell, LG…
  • global metal, cutting & tooling, Asahi Diamond, Erasteel, Krupp, Mitsubishi, Plansee…
