Zünd digital cutting systems for maximum performance

Zünd is exhibiting at Composites Europe 2019 (Hall 9, Booth C77) in Stuttgart, Germany, September 10-12. With a Zünd G3 cutter configuration, the Swiss cutter manufacturer highlights the modularity and performance that distinguish Zünd digital cutting systems.

For anyone engaged in processing composites, high levels of productivity and throughput, utmost reliability, and easy integration into automated production workflows are crucial competitive advantages. An integrated workflow, where all components are perfectly in sync, is the key to success. This is precisely what makes Zünd's modular cutting systems ideal for use in industrial environments. At the show in Stuttgart, Zünd is demonstrating a G3 cutter with carbon protection. The G3 is equally well suited as a stand-alone solution for semi-automatic fabrication in smaller quantities and as a component of a fully integrated industrial production line. Because of their open interface, G3 cutters can be quickly and easily integrated into any existing production workflow. G3 cutting capabilities include dry fabric, prepreg, UD tape, organic sheets, as well as core materials such as honeycomb or rigid foams, cured laminates, and sandwich materials.

Zünd cutting systems are consistently geared towards automated, digital production. This allows manufacturers to produce more parts in less time, significantly reduce time-to-market, and optimize material yield. Because of Zünd's modular machine-design concept, Zünd cutting systems can be easily adapted to the specific needs that exist in rapidly evolving markets such as composites. This ensures maximum productivity and a great return on investment.

Advanced digital workflows demand a seamless flow of data. With the software solutions, Zünd offers, the user is perfectly equipped to handle the vast and varied demands of a challenging market. The software automatically optimizes contours and adjusts cut paths for the type of material and specific tool being used. With the integrated nesting module, parts are automatically nested for optimal yield. Especially in view of rising material costs, maximizing material usage without sacrificing quality is imperative for making digital cutting productive and profitable.
