WE GIVE weight to your measurements!

DO YOU REQUIRE an industrial - or a science-based approach for your needs? Are you seeking quality, effectiveness and high performance?
Zwiebel will shape your requirements.

We have been providing
our experience and expertise since 1828

Two centuries of experience have built up Zwiebel’s know-how, and it is
establishing itself as France’s leading manufacturer of precision weights
and masses
. Our assets: very high-tech manufacturing systems and
highly-innovative methods. Our company now works in a number of sectors: aeronautics, agribusiness, chemistry and pharmacology etc.


Gravure au diamant-zwiebelOur entire production process is TRACKED!Identification of every weight – upwards from 1g – is carried out so as to meet requirements with regard to traceability as defined by quality assurance standards.
This unique and indelible method of identification enables us to trace our production history: calibration, materials, interventions etc, with the result that risks associated with mistakes are eliminated.
mape monde zwiebelReal INTERNATIONAL presenceAs a preferred partner in mass metrology, our customers are hugely varied. Among them are the BIPM (the international bureau of weights and measures) and a number of national and primary laboratories, which are genuine benchmarks in each country.
innovation zwiebelA requirement that carries weight : INNOVATIONZwiebel is actively conducting a policy of innovation. We are involved in studies concerning new materials and we are studying and developing new automatic systems for calibrating. We are also
the first manufacturer to be meeting normative requirements.



At Zwiebel, quality is non-negotiable!
Our commitment is twofold: we select our materials and we use specific software that favours adapting our comparators towards robotics. But we take this even further. By integrating all stages of the manufacturing process at our site, and by rigorously respecting quality procedures, we are able to ensure that Zwiebel’s weights and masses conform to international standards and recommendations.
