Zapp Precision Metals - micrometal

The cooperation between Zapp Precision Metals and micrometal has existed for more than 20 years.

For micrometal, it is indispensable to have a reliable supplier of steel precision strips which can be seen as a partner as well as a solution provider. We do not buy finished products from a catalogue, but develop new solutions with Zapp, which in turn must meet the requirements of our customers.

This path is not simple, and requires willingness and technical know-how to tackle new obstacles. This pragmatism and the desire to solve challenges characterizes both companies, as does the production of continually optimized stress-free photo-chemically processed materials. For micrometal’s customers, this means that finished products achieve absolute flatness and straightness, especially advantageous for any necessary post-processing.

micrometal’s customers can be sure that they will benefit from the cooperation with Zapp Precision Metals.

They will always have an experienced micrometal expert at their side who not only has material expertise but also plans and implements the optimum design layout and processability of their products.

Cooperation

We asked key people at Zapp Precision Metals what their experience of working with micrometal was.

"We appreciate the open and uncomplicated way in which micrometal acts in the interests of its customers. We also benefit from the new and growing material requirements that micrometal GmbH demands from us. We take on the necessary developments very flexibly in this regard, and we manufacture and test new materials in order to be able to achieve firm foundations for stable series production. We are included in technical discussions with the customer and micrometal to ensure timely and optimized solutions,” says Tobias Wiegandt, Technical Business Development Manager at Zapp Precision Metals.

"We really appreciate the fact that the experts at micrometal think and act in the customer's interests throughout the entire value chain. Often, a technically better and more cost-effective result can be achieved if product properties are developed before photochemical processing; for example a defined surface roughness can be achieved during cold rolling," says Dr. Paul Campbell, Head of Sales at Zapp Precision Metals.
