Zünd Systemtechnik AG at Composites Europe 2015

Zünd will be presenting innovative solutions for the composite market at Composites Europe, from September 22 to 24 2015 (Hall 7, Stand E31) in Stuttgart, Germany. With the G3 M-1600, the Swiss cutter manufacturer will present a digital cutting solution that is versatile and made for the highest performance.

With the G3 M-1600 Zünd Systemtechnik will present the perfect digital cutting system in Stuttgart, tailor-made for the requirements of the composite market. On a working surface of 1,330 x 1,600 mm the G3 M-1600 processes any material, from pre-preg, dry weave and core materials right through to finished laminates. No matter whether carbon or glass fiber, aramide, rock wool or basalt fiber, hard foam or honeycomb; with its advanced tool concept Zünd has the right high-performance tool for any material. With the Power Rotary Tool (PRT), for example, Zünd recommends an extremely robust and powerful cutting tool that can meet the highest demands to process carbon and glass fiber fabrics. The PRT is protected against electrically charged or abrasive dusts. To ensure that materials with a low melting point can be processed in a low-impact way, the speed of the rotary knife can be adjusted to the material requirements. The Pneumatic Oscillating Tool (POT) is suitable for core materials. With its powerful pneumatic drive and extended stroke of 8 mm, the POT cuts honeycomb as well as hard foams efficiently and with the required force. With the R62 special router bit, hardened workpieces can be precisely and efficiently routed.

Many uses
Through its modular machine concept, Zünd's high-performance cutters can be adapted to the specific requirements of the dynamic composite market. This guarantees the highest level of productivity while at the same time ensuring a safe investment. The G3 cutter is CE-compliant and certified according to the safety standards of the US UL product safety label. It is suitable for stand-alone solutions as well as for semi-automatic use with small quantities, or also as a production system integrated into industrial environments. Thanks to its open interfaces, the G3 Cutter is quick and easy to integrate into an existing production environment. It is professionally documented in several languages and the user can operate the cutter via the user interface of the Zünd Cut Center in the language of his own country. The powerful CAD/CAM software supports the user in the material-saving, automatic nesting of cutting parts, for example. The Zünd Cutter G3 is installed in thousands of locations around the world and proves itself anew every single day. The reference list is extensive and contains renowned industrial customer from the automotive and aerospace industry, from aviation and from the wind energy sector.
