On 24 January 2022, ZIMM Germany celebrated “grandly” in a double meaning of the word. On the one hand, because the four-stage bevel planetary gear unit of construction size 700 (product code: B4 GKP4-700-346,3-R-VO-VL200) that was prepared for delivery was not exactly one of the smallest; and on the other, because it was the 250,000th gear to come off the production line in Ohorn since the 1940s.
It was one of more than 90 ladle turret gear units – and altogether one of more than 2,500 special gear units – that were delivered to one of our long-standing customers in recent years.
We congratulate the project team and all others who were involved in the production of this gear as well as its 249,999 forerunners, too. Now it’s on to the half-million mark!
