At Z-Max, we offer all types of cooling and refrigeration solutions from consumer electronics, medical, optical, communication, food, and industrial equipment.
From its start 20 years ago Z-Max has focused on Peltier thermoelectric technologies, a non-freon technology which is environmentally friendly and no greenhouse gas emissions.
We have succeeded development of high-quality modules, achieving high quality mass production capacity at a Japanese standards level.
In addition, we also focus on the support of new product development. Applications of Peltier modules is a niche product that requires specialized knowledge and experience. We have professional sales and technical staff which offers global support 24/7.
Currently, we are developing small and medium refrigeration solutions such as industrial refrigerators and wine cellars, in the future we plan to be able to deploy a wide range of products in our brand power and technical capabilities.
We are constantly working hard with our research and development team to offer the best refrigeration solutuions in the market along with a professional support and guidance.

“We are passionate for Peltier thermoelectric technology, and our customers”
In 1821, Thomas Johann Seebeck discovered that a temperature gradient formed from two conductors generating the (Seebeck effect). In 1834, Jean Charles Athanase Peltier discovered that it can function as a heater and a cooler (Peltier / Peltier effect) by applying voltage to the junction of two different conductors and applying current. Absorption of heat, or heat generation, is proportional to the current, and the proportionality constant is known as the Peltier coefficient.
These Thermoelectric Effects convert the temperature difference into voltage. A thermoelectric element produces a voltage when there is a different temperature on each side, and when a voltage is applied, a temperature difference occurs.
Applications that use the thermoelectric effect can be used in the field of refrigeration and cooling modules. Since the direction of heating and cooling is determined by the polarity of the applied voltage, the thermoelectric device can also be used as a temperature control device.
Today, according to research results of Seebeck effect and Peltier effect, Peltier / Thermoelectric module utilizing this technology and thermoelectric materials are used in various thermoelectric cooling fields as heater, cooler (TEC).
