Roll-off units

Roll materials require special handling. The Zünd product offering includes roll-off systems that can handle even the most challenging rolled materials.

Roll-off unit universal

The Universal roll-off unit is especially suited for light rolls of material that need to be changed often. Changing the rolls is quick and easy. Ideally, the rolled material should be dense and not have a tendency to wrinkle (e.g. paper or vinyl). An adjustable brake effectively prevents the material from continuing to unwind. The use of a material guide roll significantly reduces the potential for wrinkling and creasing.

  • Quick, easy roll changes
  • Ideal for lighter rolls
  • Perfect for paper or plastic films, vinyl
  • Suitable for inward/outward wound rolls
  • With the addition of a material guide roller, wrinkling is reduced

Details

  • Max. roll diameter: 350 mm/13.5 in
  • Max. roll weight: 70 kg/155 lbs
  • Available for all cutter sizes
Roll-up Unit Universal

Roll-off unit, core support

In contrast to the universal roll-off, the unwind unit with shaft is perfect for textiles and other soft, flexible materials. The roll is secured on a shaft and placed in the roll-off unit. This ensures the material is rolled off smoothly and evenly. 

  • Ideal for textiles
  • Suitable for inward/outward wound rolls
  • With the addition of a material guide roller, wrinkling is reduced

Details

  • Max. roll diameter: 350 mm/13.5 in
  • Max. roll weight: 70 kg/155 lbs
  • Roll core diameter: 76 mm/3 in
  • Available for all cutter sizes

Cradle Feeder 100

The cradle feeder 100 enables tension-free advancing of stretchy textile materials. At the heart of the system is a cradle consisting of belts and rollers that advances material from a roll to the cutting area. A dancer roller continuously registers fluctuations in web tension. If needed, the cradle feeder 100 regulates the drive speed, ensuring completely tension-free material advancing.
Integrated edge control guarantees precise alignment of the material edges. If the sensor detects an irregularity, the cradle feeder 100 automatically adjusts the horizontal alignment of the cradle. Because no shaft is used to hold the roll in place, the core need not meet any special requirements. Even rolls with crimped, broken, or missing cores can be processed. A rapid-rewind feature can be employed after processing to rewind material and create tightly wound rolls. A new, integrated cross-cut feature permits cutting the web at the end of a marker.

  • Tension-free feeding of flexible, stretchy textiles
  • Automatic web edge control guarantees exact feeding accuracy
  • Cross-cut option for manual or automatic cross cut
  • Simple controls with user-friendly touch panel
  • Fast, easy roll changes for maximum versatility
  • Reliable handling of rolls with crimped, broken, or missing cores
  • Additional roll-off unit with shaft can be mounted on cradle feeder 100 as option
  • Fully supported in Zünd Cut Center - ZCC and MindCut software

Details

  • Roll weight: max. 100 kg/220 lbs
  • Roll diameter: max. 400 mm/15.75 in
  • Available in L, XL, and 3XL widths
  • The cradle feeder 100 equipped with optional cross-cut requires a cutter extension
  • Suitable for inward/outward wound rolls
  • Compatible with G3, S3, D3

Roll-off unit, shaft, active

The active roll-off unit with shaft is equipped with a motor. The roll-off unit with shaft offers the additional capability of rewinding the material at the end of the material advance. This effectively prevents creasing as the material is fed onto the working area.

  • Ideal for textiles
  • Material that continues rolling off is rewound with a motor-driven rewind
  • Suitable for inward/outward wound rolls
  • With the addition of a material guide roller, wrinkling is reduced

Details

  • Max. roll diameter: 350 mm/13.5 in
  • Max. roll weight: 70 kg/155 lbs
  • Roll core diameter: 76 mm/3 in
  • Available for all cutter sizes

Material guide roll

The material guide roll effectively prevents creasing of textile materials. In the process, the material is fed over a guide roll to spread it. We recommend always using the material guide roll in combination with a roll-off unit!

  • Optimized material guidance and reduced friction minimize wrinkling
  • Ideal for stretch fabrics and rougher rolled materials
Material Guide Roll

Roll-up unit shaft, active

The motor-driven roll-up unit with shaft is used for continuous, automatic production of large kiss-cut orders. The material is immediately rolled onto the core after processing, which ensures that it remains clean and free of kinks and creases. This roll-up unit is ideally suited for vinyl, film, or printed fabrics with a max. roll weight of up to 70 kg/155 lbs.

Roll-up Unit Shaft, Active

Roll-up unit tray, active

The motorized roll-up tray is suitable for small kiss-cut jobs. The vinyl is automatically rolled up in a tray after processing. After each cut-off, the coreless rolls can be removed from the tray immediately without interrupting production. Suitable for vinyl sections no longer than 20 m/65 ft.

Collection tray

The collection tray is useful for collecting cut parts and waste. It ensures a clean working environment. For emptying, the tray can be removed from the cutter in a few simple steps.

  • Collects cut parts and waste
  • Emptying occurs without interrupting production
