Couches and sectionals, office chairs, car seats, leather steering wheels - Zünd cutting systems are specifically designed for producing top-quality leather goods. Many well-known manufacturers in the leather industry rely on Zünd cutting systems. This is not surprising considering the outstanding performance, low cost of ownership, and easy integration into your workflow ensuring a rapid ROI. At 3240 x 1000 mm /128 x 40 in, the working area of this high-performance leather cutter is perfect for efficiently processing animal hides.
Zünd cutting systems are used both in prototyping and production. We can offer you the right solution for your production environment, tailored to your individual needs. With a large variety of tools and a range of sophisticated material-handling solutions, we can guarantee a perfect fit.
The L3 cutter is designed for non-stop operation with loading/unloading and cutting all taking place at the same time. The machine can be set up for two types of production workflows and material handling: With the standard set-up, the entire working area is available for processing once the material is loaded/unloaded; in a tandem set-up, the working area is split into two halves, making it possible to load and unload materials while the machine continues cutting. A green LED strip indicates in which area production has ended and new material can safely be loaded or unloaded.
L3 cutter sizes
Choose from 2 different sizes to select the perfect machine for your application.
Zünd L3 – efficient, robust, powerful
The L3 is extremely fast and robust and gives manufacturers the ability to dramatically increase their output. The exceptional productivity of the cutter stems from its smart motion control, precise drive system, and fine-tuned cutting technology. Furthermore, with its superior precision, the cutter proves itself by immediately processing even highly complex patterns at exceptionally high speeds.
A projection system visually supports the operator throughout all phases of production - from capturing the leather to nesting and removing cut parts.
Energy-efficient vacuum turbines ensure reliable material hold-down during the cutting process. The leather is held down and processed on a highly stable aluminum cutting surface, which is divided into 56 individually controllable vacuum zones. Adjustable vacuum generators with a power of up to 12 kW create the necessary vacuum. The quality and design of the table plate guarantee optimal hold-down and reliably clean, precise cuts.
You have the flexibility to precisely choose and combine the tools you need for the job at hand and in accordance with your specific production requirements. You can equip the L3 with up to seven different tools.
Fast, precise, efficient: the setup of cutting tools, blades, and bits occurs fully automatically with an integrated tool calibration system. The ITI Initialization System makes the process quick and precise and eliminates any manual steps in determining the proper cutting depth.
The L3 working surface is slanted, which facilitates the loading/unloading process. For optimal accessibility, the control panel is mounted on a guide rail and can be freely moved.

Versatility and the Zünd tool concept
The Zünd tooling system consists of high-performance cutting, punching, and routing tools. The modularity of the system minimizes the initial cost and lets you tailor the configuration to your specific needs. The L3 can accommodate combinations of up to seven tools for different functions. Select the tools that will create the perfect configuration for your needs.
Suitable for fabric and technical textiles. The driven rotary blade allows for very high processing speeds.
The Driven Rotary Tool is designed for cutting all manner of textiles reliably and economically. The material is cut with a motor-driven ten-segmented blade. The blade geometry reduces the drag force on the material considerably and also helps cleanly sever thread or fiber. This processing method produces clean, precise cuts even on very loose, coarsely knit materials.
Choice of two RPM setting depending on the application. Also suitable for cutting materials with low melting points.
- Use of rotary blades reduces drag on the material
- Choice of 2 RPM settings (20,000/12,000 rpm)
