Zünd at Airtec 2016
At the Airtec 2016 in Munich (October 25 to 27), Zünd will be giving first hand insights into its innovative digital cutting technologies specially
developed for processing composites. Whether carbon, glass or natural fiber, Zünd has what it needs to get it done.
Zünd digital cutters are used for prototyping as well as serial production and offer workflow solutions that are perfect for every type of manufacturing environment. Zünd Cutters are available in 17 different sizes, from 1330 x 1600 mm to 3210 x 3200 mm. Zünd cutters are modular by design. With their built-in flexibility, they can be configured to meet an exceptionally wide range of cutting requirements. The Zünd G3 is the digital cutting system especially tailored to the requirements of the composites industry. The modular cutting system is ideally suited for composites applications, tailored to meet the demands typical of the highly dynamic aerospace industry and is guaranteed to deliver exceptional productivity along with an unusually quick and reliable ROI. The G3 cutter is CE and UL certified. Powered by the user software Zünd Cut Center with its open interface, G3 cutters can be quickly and easily integrated in any type of production environment. High-performance CAM software options support the user in maximizing material yield through automatic nesting.
The Zünd tool palette ensures the appropriate tool is always at hand. For many composites applications, Zünd recommends the robust Power Rotary Tool – PRT, one of the company's flagship high-capacity tools that has proven consistently that it can stand up to the rigorous demands of cutting carbon fiber or fiberglass. The tool and cutting system are protected from statically charged and/or abrasive dust particles, and for cleanly cutting materials with a lower melting point, it is possible to reduce the rpm of the rotary blade. As an air-driven tool with a long cutting stroke, the powerful Pneumatic Oscillating Tool – POT is particularly well suited for cutting honeycomb materials and rigid foams. The Zünd R62, a custom router bit, is recommended for routing cured parts cleanly and efficiently.
The Zünd G3 cutters have an impressively broad installation base, proving their reliability on a daily basis. The company's list of references comes with many renowned customers involved in the aerospace and aviation business.
