Pumps and filters of all kinds are at the core of the MAAG Group. Max Maag’s first attempts to develop innovative gear pumps date back to 1908. They took place in Zurich, Switzerland. The location in Oberglatt near Zurich is still the headquarters of the MAAG Group. However, because pumps and filters have to meet such different requirements, four fields of competence have been developed over the years, covering the various products and systems.
The center of excellence in Oberglatt generally concentrates on gear pumps for polymer production and processing. The focus is on the continuous optimization of housings, shafts, bearings and shaft packing.
The MAAG Group’s pumps team in Rozzano, Italy, specializes in industrial pumps primarily for the chemical and petrochemical industries. Upgrades and new developments ensure that the industry can be served with the best possible pump geometries for optimum processing of low- to high-viscosity products covering a wide range of applications. With varying housing designs, different requirements can be realized economically and to a technically optimum standard.
The site in Shanghai, China, focuses on extrusion pumps, especially for processing elastomers and thermoplastics. The expert team finds the optimum transfer, booster and metering pumps for all thermoplastic grades from high to low viscosity with ideal pressure and optimum shear stress.
The experts in filters and filtration systems are located at the center of excellence in Grossostheim, Germany. They develop and test filters and screen changers to meet special customer requirements.
Large-area filters are developed and produced by our colleagues in Charlotte, USA.
The colleagues at the various fields of competence are continually exchanging information on their latest developments, and work together on an interdisciplinary basis.
