Zünd, your first choice in digital cutting

At JEC Asia, November 15 - 17 (Booth H17) in Singapore, Zünd will be presenting its modular digital cutting solutions designed for exceptional productivity and performance.

Maximum productivity and reliability are critical competitive advantages in the composites market. Perfectly coordinated system components working together in an integrated digital workflow are the key to success. With its modular cutting systems combined with a wide range of automation options, Zünd offers perfect solutions for cutting and off-loading prepreg materials. The collaborative UR robot for example relieves the operator of the repetitive, non-value adding task of sorting and unloading. The cut parts are automatically stacked and can be removed any time without any interruptions to the production process.
Zünd Cutters can cut anything from prepreg materials to dry fabrics and core materials, and even finished CFRP laminates. No matter whether carbon or glass fiber, aramide, rock wool or basalt fiber, hard foam or honeycomb – with its advanced tool design, Zünd offers the right high-performance cutting tool for every application. To meet the rigorous demands of processing fiberglass and carbon fiber, for example, Zünd recommends the extremely efficient and robust Power Rotary Tool PRT, which is also protected against electrically charged or abrasive dust particles. For cutting materials with a low melting point without damaging them, the RPM settings of the tool can be adjusted for specific material requirements. The Pneumatic Oscillating Tool POT is another powerful tool; air-driven, with an 8 mm stroke, this tool is the perfect choice for efficiently processing honeycomb and hard foam materials.

Many and varied uses
Because of their modular design, Zünd high-performance cutting systems can be easily tailored to the specific needs and dynamics of the composites market. This not only guarantees exceptional productivity but also makes the Zünd a very safe investment with both immediate and lasting returns. The G3 cutter is CE and UL certified. It can be used as a standalone solution in a semi-automated configuration for custom or shorter-run production or in an automated industrial production workflow.

Zünd in the ASEAN region
For more than 30 years, the name Zünd has stood for Swiss quality, family affair, sustainability and system solutions with maximum customer benefit. Zünd Cutters offer highest precision, intelligent tool steering and automatic material handling for powerful, multi-functional production units. In different market segments such as graphics, packaging, leather, textile, technical textile and composite there are many thousands of Zünd cutters in use throughout the world, and a large quantity of them in the ASEAN region. In order to further expand their commitment and presence in the ASEAN market Zünd recently founded the subsidiary Zund Asia (Bangkok) Ltd. which attends to the clients in the south easterly Asian market. The existing company Zünd Thailand Co. Ltd., the previous Zünd-business partner responsible for the Thai market, was integrated in Zund Asia (Bangkok) Ltd. Zünd Asia based in Hong Kong will further attend to the Zünd-customers in the rest of Asia.
