Zund demonstrating 'Simulate, Print & Cut' at ITMA 2015
At ITMA 2015, Zünd, with other industry partners will demonstrate how textile and garment makers can make their production processes more efficient, profitable, and transparent with 'Simulate, Print & Cut'.
“Digital technologies are conquering the textile industry and opening up new possibilities, from virtual product development in 3D, to fully automated digital printing digital cutting systems,” a Zund press release said.
According to Zund, 'Simulate, Print & Cut' is a fully integrated, highly adaptable production workflow, Zünd is introducing together with the German Institute for Textile & Fiber Research Denkendorf, Assyst, Ergosoft and Kornit.
'Simulate, Print & Cut' integrates the traditionally separate areas of design, file preparation, printing, and cutting,” it added.
It automates the entire production process and increases profitability by integrating the different phases of production, leading to greater overall efficiency, better transparency, and faster turn-around.
'Simulate, Print & Cut' therefore contributes significantly to realising the full potential of production optimisation essential in state-of-the-art textile and garment manufacturing,” the company stated.
The system seamlessly links all processing phases from digital design and pattern development, placement of the design in virtual 3D, to file preparation for digital printing, and precise cutting with a Zünd digital cutting system.
“In doing so, it creates entirely new possibilities for design and product development,” Switzerland based Zund informed.
The effective use of new technologies leads to significantly shorter delivery times and makes production planning a great deal more flexible.
The garment and fashion industry, always under pressure to come up with the next collection and has to produce as efficiently and economically as possible.
State-of-the-art Vidya 3D simulation software from pioneer and market leader Assyst is used for pattern development which permits photo-realistic simulation of the human body and garment, as well as virtual sampling.
The company's web-based service automarker.com is used for material-optimised layout and marker management.
As supplier of high-end RIP software, ErgoSoft offers solutions specifically for textile printing, from colour management to automation solutions.
ErgoSoft's RIP software TexPrint takes care of the preparation of print data and in the next step, the designs are printed on the new textile pigment printer Allegro from Kornit.
Finally, the printed rolls of fabric are cut on a Zünd S3 cutting systemc and because of its open interface; the state-of-the-art Zünd S3 cutter can be seamlessly integrated in any production workflow.
In addition, the Zünd cutter offers a wide variety of modular tooling capable of processing the full spectrum of textile and other flexible materials with remarkable precision and efficiency. (AR)
