@CindyB and @barryb, thanks for taking the time to be with us today. We rarely have the opportunity to have a husband/wife team join us for an AMA. It’s great to have you both here.

How did you find your way into the cannabis business and how did you come to invent this automatic trimming machine?

What is the optimum amount of material to run through your largest machine? what sort of maintenance do you recommend ?

Hi Nick,

We started back in 2011 when some growers that knew my extensive engineering background ask us to develop a better trimmer for high volume trimming. After doing our research we decided that two barrels would give double the output and with 1.5 years of R&D we found the correct geometry for our design to achieved our goal with better cutting performance. That’s when we came up with our signature Zoom Double Barrel Trimmer Technologies (ZDBTT) and thus Zoom Technologies was born.

Hi @colbyriggle

No, not really. We met each other before we got into the cannabis industry.

Hi @colbyriggle

The maximum wet is 120lbs and dry is 45lbs per hour. The best maintenance is keeping everything clean for continuous running. The regular periodic maintenance is greasing the reel bearings on the Zoom Pro.

which state has your company seen the most interest from?

The state with the most interest is probably Oregon but WA, CO and CA is also look pretty good.

Wow!

I may be a bit naive but that seems like a relatively short R&D phase. How were you able to achieve the optimal design so rapidly? How many prototypes did you go through before you got the geometry right?

can you share some criticisms of other popular machines on the market? how is your design an improvement?

Thanks so much for the AMA @barryb and @CindyB! This is Will with Canna Cribs. It’d be super cool to do a β€œPepsi challenge” type video comparing flower processed by Zoom, Ez Trim, GreenBroz, CenturionPro, Triminator, Tom’s Tumbler, etc. with results evaluated by industry experts. Would you be interested in participating in something like that?

Yes it was a very fast prototyping cycle and required many very very long days. What made this fast was my engineering background and our close connection with the factory. Over 2 years we did 4 proto’s to find the proper working design.

The real difference that sets us apart is Zoom trimmers is our trimming performance from having built a quality, large trim capacity double barrel trimmer that is very cost-effective and our great customer service. Our Zoom trimmers will outperform all other trimmers that can come remotely close to their size at much less cost. We have designed the cutting process to be very gentle with our unique design, speed and tilt adjustments as the trimmer is in operation for wet or dry material. This gives you full control of the outcome for every strain type. We have double barrel trimmers for small to very large hemp & cannabis operations to meet the needs of these growers and processors. These patented features set us apart from other trimmers.

Hey Zoom Tech Team! @CindyB and @barryb, Thanks for hosting this AMA! :slightly_smiling_face:

Have you found any industry preference or standard for wet versus dry trimming? If so, why would that be?

What do people mean when they say β€œhard on the product” when it comes to machine trimming? Is there a visible difference in quality?

Thanks in advance!

@will.i.am
We are happy to see comparisons with our trimmers with other trimmers. Of course it’s a little hard when comparing batch dry/wet trimmers to continuous feed trimmers. Let’s arrange something off line and see how we can make that work.
