15 Years ZS-Handling
ZS-Handling GmbH is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. Founded in 2006, the company develops and produces systems and handling technology for a wide range of applications. With its 25 highly qualified employees, the Regensburg site manufactures innovative and customized solutions for world market leaders in the fields of semiconductor and solar technology, glass production and medical technology. ZS-Handling GmbH also offers solutions for optimizing production processes in the field of e-mobility.
The heart of the system is the patented ultrasonic bearing, which enables contactless gripping and transport of sensitive components. The so-called sonotrode of the ultrasonic bearing is made to vibrate and thus generates an air film that causes the component to float in a controlled manner. In combination with negative pressure, components can also be gripped and moved from above without surface contact.
This gentle handling prevents even the smallest damage such as micro-scratches or cracks on the highly sensitive components. This technology can also be used in the clean room and needs significantly lower energy consumption compared to conventional non-contact handling technologies, as no compressed air is required. Application areas include films, glass, wafers & chips, lenses as well as battery and fuel cell foils.
In recent years, projects have been successfully implemented in-country and abroad with leading manufacturers. The success in the semiconductor industry was followed by entry into the solar industry. The competence of ZS-Handling GmbH in non-contact handling has quickly got around. In the meantime, projects in the glass manufacturing and automotive industry have also been successfully carried out.
And the success story continues: At the beginning of 2022, the new company building in Köfering, just outside Regensburg, will be completed and ready for occupancy. This ensures that ZS-Handling’s innovative solutions for discerning customers from all over the world can continue to be developed and manufactured in over 1,600 square meters of office and production space.
The course at the "Number 1" for contactless ultrasonic handling is thus clearly set for continued growth and expansion.
