“The new cutter from Zünd is based on growing demand from packaging manufacturers and print service providers. The new cutter features a variety of technological innovations as well as flexibility in handling the widest possible range of materials,” says Roman Hasler, product manager packaging. Zünd is showing the new cutter in conjunction with the Board Handling System (BHS) for fully automated board loading and unloading.
The modular design of all Zünd cutting systems allows the user to be responsive and flexible in reacting to customer demand. Another system on display will be a Zünd S3 with automatic sheet feeder. An example of a total automation production system, the S3 is equipped with QR-code capture capabilities for automatic file retrieval as well as a collaborative robot for automatic off-loading and stacking. By significantly increasing net throughput, this fully automated cutting system helps customers become more profitable and competitive.
Having an intelligent digital production workflow is paramount to efficient, optimized production with the shortest-possible time to market. Zünd Cut Center (ZCC) is a user-friendly software suite that functions as a virtual control centre for the entire digital finishing process. With such new features as a powerful nesting module and user-definable register marks, ZCC now offers even greater flexibility and ease of use.
“Our digital cutting solutions make up a significant portion of overall productivity increases; however, just as importantly, the trend towards automation involving different phases of production also demands seamless data flow. By combining the new Zünd ultra high-performance cutter with modular automation solutions and Zünd Cut Center – ZCC software, we can offer obvious added value to customers looking to make their production both efficient and more profitable,” says Lars Bendixen, product manager graphics.
