High-performance digital cutting solutions and intelligent automation are the focus of Zünd’s exhibit at Drupa 2016. The spotlight will be on the unveiling of Zünd’s new, ultra high-performance digital cutting system, underscoring the importance of optimal productivity and efficiency as primary drivers of growth.
Nowadays productivity increases are the driving force behind all growth in industrial manufacturing. For this reason, Zünd is making its efforts to further optimize efficiency and flexibility the central theme of the company’s exhibit at Drupa 2016. Under the banner “Double your productivity…”, Zünd will be presenting a variety of high-productivity finishing solutions in Hall 9, booth C05.
The highlight of the Zünd exhibit will be a newly developed, ultra high-performance cutting system that takes productivity to an entirely new level. This revolutionary new cutter from Zünd is based on growing demand from packaging manufacturers and print service providers. It immediately doubles production throughput without any compromises in output quality. The new cutter features a variety of technological innovations as well as superb flexibility in handling the widest possible range of materials. “With the new Zünd cutter, we increase the productivity and efficiency of our customers, thereby strengthening their business, which makes this a completely failsafe investment,” says Roman Hasler, Product Manager Packaging. Zünd is showing the new cutter in conjunction with the high-performance Board Handling System BHS for fully automated board loading and unloading. With this configuration, Drupa visitors will be able to see in action a cutting system at the ultimate level of automation and productivity.
The modular design of all Zünd cutting systems allows the user to be extremely responsive and flexible in reacting to customer demand. Another system on display at Drupa will be a Zünd S3 with automatic Sheet Feeder. A great 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 more 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 powerful yet user-friendly software suite that functions as virtual control center 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 more efficient and more profitable,” says Lars Bendixen, Product Manager Graphics.
