robust

Designed and built to perform reliably in difficult and hostile environments.

efficient

Extremely low space requirement, unbeatable ratio between retracted and extended height, self-locking, low power consumption and many other efficiency-defining features.

versatile

Easy integration enables many applications and limits your risks during integration.
No matter which sensors or actuators are to be integrated on the ZIPPERMAST – or on which platform the ZIPPERMAST is integrated – the system makes integration easy for you.

unique

In many cases, ZIPPERMAST will be the only available technical solution when moving payloads in extremely confined environments or under extreme conditions.

ZIPPERMAST

robust – compact – self-sustainable – efficient

ZIPPERMAST sets new standards in terms of technology and handling when it comes to lifting payloads linearly or moving them in any direction in push or pull. Due to its robust and patented design, ZIPPERMAST can be used in almost any environment under almost any circumstances.Its technical features make ZIPPERMAST a reliable subsystem that dramatically extends the function and range of your sensors and actuators. Technically, ZIPPERMAST helps you to minimise typical integration risks and save time and money.

  • self-locking

    When extended, the mast rests on the lead screw. In the event of a power failure, the mast holds its position.

  • uniform

    The lead screw solution ensures maximum uniformity of power and speed in both directions.

  • Mechanical protection

    Protected guiding of the payload cable inside the mast from the base to the head.

  • High breakaway torque

    Extremely high breakaway torque in case of icing, pollution, etc. due to the lead screw solution.

  • Open yet impermeable

    Electronics and sensitive mechanics hermetically sealed, remaining technology open and insensitive to pressure, making ZIPPERMAST one of the very few telescopic masts that can be operated under water.

ZIPPERMAST

brilliantly simple

Three stainless steel belts, arranged at 120° to each other, are driven up and down completely synchronously by a centrally arranged lead screw. Like a zip, the bands interlock to form a stable triangular mast. Despite its light construction and filigree appearance, the mast is enormously stable. In mathematics, the triangle is the simplest rectilinear bounded surface. In geometry, the triangle is the most stable shape. Because the triangle is simple and stable, it was also the inspiration for our logo.

ZIPPERMAST is the most compact mast technology available and requires extremely small installation space. ZIPPERMAST helps you save valuable space in or on your systems such as vehicles, unmanned vehicles (UGV, UAV, USV), service facilities and other platforms.

Due to its robust construction, ZIPPERMAST can be used outdoors, without any special protective measures or enclosures.

ZIPPERMAST

ZIPPERMAST – big at being small

Due to the scalable design, ZIPPERMAST can be built in almost any size and dimension to ideally meet the requirements of your application.

Our ZIPPERMAST has already been built in the dimension “mini” – in the size of a cup – and up to a size in which it was able to lift a payload of 70 kg to a height of 15 metres.
