Stainless steel gear units for highest demands - ZAE

Especially in the foodstuff industry great importance is attached to hygiene. Here individual components, and indeed entire installations, are frequently cleaned and thereby subjected to a greater strain. For this reason ZAE offers you, specially for this segment, stainless steel gear units of the highest quality and processing standard.

Our stainless steel gear units are employed, above all, in the beverage and foodstuff industry, in the packaging industry as well as in chemical and pharmaceutical plants. Stainless steel gear units are ideal here, as they are less susceptible to aggressive cleaning and disinfectant agents, which are often also applied at high pressure.

Stainless steel gear units are therefore the perfect drives for a long life cycle. We would be happy to give you detailed advice with regard to our product range and innovations in respect of stainless steel gear units. Inform yourself on our web site and get in touch with us directly. And in the case of special designs, too, we explicitly address your needs and hence act as your professional partner for stainless steel gear units.
