Why Choose a Zimm Screw Jack System?

Most screw jack designs have been around for decades. While they have stood the test of time, today's applications require more dynamic solutions, with more options and more automation.

There is also a demand for a system approach to lifting and positioning requirements, where all components are matched and the solutions encompass a complete assembly.

Zimm provides that system approach, offering the most advanced screw jack designs along with all the connecting, safety and drive components, all available from a single source and included in a single assembly drawing.

Zimm offers what no one else does - a complete solution for your lifting needs.
