Tooling and automated material-handling solutionsZünd at Fespa 2015 Germany Hall 7 Stand M20Zünd Systemtechnik will present its latest innovative, fully automated cutting systems for screen, digital, and textile print professionals at Fespa 2015 which will be held in Cologne, Germany from 18 to 22 May. Zünd offers dedicated tooling and automated material-handling solutions for every application.
Equipped with a center-winder, the Zünd G3 3XL-1600 offers fully automated, economical, and highly productive finishing of rolled materials up to 3.21 metre wideRobotic off-load system
Zünd’s focus at Fespa in Cologne is on demonstrating to print service providers how they can increase productivity while decreasing labour costs. New automation solutions for Zünds widely used modular cutters are designed to optimize finishing throughput. One of the highlights of Zünd’s exhibit is the state-of-the-art robotic off-load option. Working in conjunction with a Zünd S3 M-800, the robot picks and sorts cut parts. The robot is designed to function autonomously in production environments where human operators and advanced technology work together to achieve maximum productivity.
Automatic router tool changer
With the new automatic tool changer – ARC, Zünd is introducing an automation solution that increases the efficiency of Zünd G3 cutters by significantly reducing setup times for routing applications. With the ARC system, the user has at his disposal a carousel in which up to eight different bits can be freely combined for processing. The system automatically selects the correct router bit for the job and material at hand, guaranteeing optimal results. This eliminates the potential for operator errors in higher-volume routing applications involving aluminium, wood, plastics, and composite materials.
Automation solutions for every application
Another step towards total automation with Zünd cutting systems is file retrieval via QR-Code. Once the material is fed onto the cutting surface, the ICC camera captures the QR-code embedded in the printed job, and Zünd Cut Center ZCC immediately retrieves the corresponding cut file. Before processing begins, the system automatically determines the location and orientation of the graphics and, if necessary, compensates for any distortions in print or material. Zünd G3 3XL-1600 cutter is particularly well suited for wide-format finishing applications. This high-performance cutter model is ideal for cutting vinyl and other rolled materials up to 3.21 metre wide. The center-winder roll-off with integrated dancer system guarantees optimal tension control that allows for wrinkle- and distortion-free cutting of textiles.
Zünd S3 cutter with 1kW router option
With the new RM-S router module, Zünd is introducing a high-performance 1kW routing tool specifically designed for the S3 series. The new tool is capable of cutting materials such as acrylics and rigid foamcore up to a thickness of 25 mm. Zünd’s electric oscillating tool – EOT-250 is a high-performance tool developed for cutting thick cardboard and honeycomb materials. This tool is air-cooled, oscillates at very high frequencies, and has an extended, 2.5 mm stroke.
