Zünd UK demonstrated its precision cutting systems at Advanced Engineering 2018, focusing on how they can increase productivity and maximise profits for customers across a variety of business sectors.
At the event Zünd UK highlighted its latest innovations and ran live demonstrations on its G3 digital cutting table. Featuring market-leading automation, the Zünd G3 can process carbon fibre, glass fibre, foams, textiles and a host of other materials up to 110 mm thick.
In particular, Zünd UK showcased:
Modular by design, Zünd's G3, D3 and S3 cutters can be configured to meet a range of cutting requirements, and the standardised and open interfaces allow for integration in any production workflow. ZCC software is compatible with a broad range of file formats and can be integrated with other software platforms. The company reports that this combination of the latest tools, material handling systems and Swiss engineering has been shown to significantly reduce production time and materials wastage, increase workflow efficiencies, reduce downtime, and enable users to diversify with new applications.
"Thanks to the modularity of the Zünd building-block design, Zünd can configure every cutting system to meet very specific requirements,” explains Dean Ashworth, Sales and Marketing Manager at Zünd UK. “Zünd cutters are the perfect solution wherever there is a demand for unsurpassed precision, productivity and profitability. The materials and products that can be cut, processed and produced on a Zünd cutting system are extensive and diverse – from the cutting of leather upholstery used in the most prestigious car brands through to the cutting of carbon fibre for motorsport and aerospace parts."
