Zund to demonstrate cutting prowess at ITMA 2015
Sep '15
Zünd will be demonstrating how textile and garment manufacturers can significantly reduce the time to market by integrating a high-performance Zünd cutter in their production workflow at ITMA 2015 in hall 14, booth H 110.

According to a Zund press release, digital technologies are conquering the textile industry as from virtual product development in 3D to fully automated processing with digital cutting systems, a whole new world of possibilities is opening up.

“What makes this possible is the seamless and digital 'Simulate, Print & Cut' workflow, Zünd and its partners are introducing at this show,” it said.

Simulate, Print & Cut includes digital design and pattern development as well as placement of the designs in a virtual 3D space.

As soon as the digital print is completed, the design is transferred to a Zünd S3 L-1200 for cutting, which is central to this ground-breaking workflow concept for processing digitally printed fabrics.

“Because of their open interfaces, Zünd state-of-the-art cutting systems can be easily integrated in existing production workflows,” the Swiss company added.

Zünd Cut Center – ZCC, the software that powers Zünd cutters, can handle data from all commonly used RIP and nesting programs.

With Simulate, Print & Cut, the Zünd cutter receives all relevant cut data in the form of a cut file and the comprehensive materials library integrated in the software makes working with Zünd cutters easy.

“The system recommends the best processing methods for a wide range of textiles and lets the user apply the corresponding cutting parameters with the click of a button,” it stated.

Another feature of the software is the Cut Queue, which calculates the estimated processing times for every phase of production.

Once the job is completed, the actual processing times are saved with each cut file and this data can subsequently be exported and used for billing or production-planning purposes.

Besides the S3 L-1200, ITMA visitors will also be able to see a G3 L-2500 in action, which offers another modular, standalone solution for fully automated textile cutting.

The tooling presented in conjunction with Zünd's cutting systems is exceedingly modular and adaptable, making it possible to process a seemingly endless variety of textiles and other flexible materials.

“Whether woven or non-woven materials, films, felts, or foams, Zünd offers robust, high-precision cutting technology for processing all these materials and more,” Zund informed.

High-performance tools, such as the extremely robust Power Rotary Tool — PRT, were developed especially for reliable, precise cutting of challenging textile materials.

ZCC offers its own nesting function, which automatically lays out the pattern pieces on the fabric, which ensures optimal material yield and reduces waste to a minimum.

“For ultimate ease of operation, the user can choose to have ZCC in conjunction with the ICC camera system register the pieces and reposition them,” Zund explained. (AR)
