Plastic Production for High-End Fans Started Already

02/18  The highly precise five-arm stainless steel gripper with its blue suction pins at the end of the gripping rods guides the bright blue impellers from the maws of the production facility one at a time. This system is the state of the art in the plastic production industry and comes with a highly complex injection moulding tool. It is the world-renowned and unique Cpro ZAmid® impeller, produced in a highly intelligent and technically precisely adjusted process with its intelligent blade design and dedicated high-performance composite materials with special properties. The impeller is produced in one shot, i.e. in one piece without any seams at all. This is one of the outstanding quality features of the blue Cpro ZAmid® impeller. This fascinating production process is repeated many hundreds of times every day. The exciting path to the high-efficiency fan is not over. After a brief resting time of the impeller, it is transported to the newly built production complex, just a few metres away, where the blue high-quality impeller will be finished to become a high-efficiency fan. There, experienced employees will complete the blue plastic impeller with the latest ECblue motor technology to turn it into one of the high-efficiency fans with the “Premium Efficiency” mark from the Royal League by ZIEHL-ABEGG that are in high demand around the world.

State-of-the-art production system for highly efficient plastic fans in Kupferzell

This great plastic and motor production is located in the newly built production centre for high-end fans and highly efficient ECblue motors in Kupferzell. The globally increasing demand for the highly efficient ZIEHL-ABEGG fans powered with ECblue motors has made it indispensable for ZIEHL-ABEGG to start production without delay, even before the new building complex has been properly completed. The new factory, comprising about 9000 sqm, is directly adjacent to the existing production in the Hohenlohe industrial park.
After enlarging its factory, the company not only wants to continue to produce the best and most efficient plastic fans of their kind, but to also fully focus on “Industry 4.0” to become an exemplary factory for high-tech digitally linked work.

ZIEHL-ABEGG’s new high-end factory is to be inaugurated this summer.


ZAmid® – Hightech composite, a special high-quality granulate developed by ZIEHL-ABEGG for producing high-end impellers with outstanding properties such as: extremely stable, extremely light-weight, extremely resilient.

Automated preparation and dosage system for plastic production.

Cpro ZAmid® – High-performance radial impeller with ECblue motor technology for highest efficiency and lowest power consumption
The Cpro impeller from the specifically developed composite ZAmid® is one of the most innovative and sustainable products of its kind. The sophisticated three-dimensional, bionic blade concept is produced in a single injection-moulding process, avoiding any seams and ensuring the highest level of efficiency. Combined with the perfectly coordinated ZIEHL-ABEGG ECblue motors, the result is a true power pack with very low noise and best efficiency with an unbeatably economic performance.

Bionic high-tech fans from our own plastic injection molding production and aluminum die-cast production – these impressive production chains in the ZIEHL-ABEGG plants enable high-efficiency fan manufacturing with “Premium Efficiency” from the Royal League.
