Zund Systemtechnik AG, which specialises in developing and manufacturing digital cutting systems, attracted a lot of attention at the four-day FESPA Global Print Expo 2018, which was held recently at the Messe Berlin. Highlights at the Zund booth comprised the LM 100W Cut & Seal Laser Module, dual-beam D3 cutter, and RM-L routing system.

The LM 100W Laser Module impressed with its efficiency in simultaneously cutting and sealing polyester fabrics. Exceptional productivity and high-level material-handling automation were in focus on the dual-beam D3 cutter with Board Handling system BHS. And on the G3, Zund showed off the RM-L system’s high-performance, fully automated routing capabilities with jobs processing wood and acrylics, illustrating some of the many new opportunities the powerful 3.6 kW spindle provides for routing rigid materials.

At the Zund booth, visitors also had a chance to experience the company’s latest innovation, the Over Cutter Camera OCC. In a single shot, the OCC captures all registration marks visible in the cutting area. Zund Cut Center then immediately proceeds to compensating for any material distortions and initiates the cutting process. This workflow is particularly useful for cutting textiles, where single-image capture technology results in significant time savings. The benefits of the OCC system were also recognised by the jury for the EDP Awards 2018. The European Digital Press Association awarded the Over Cutter Camera OCC a coveted EDP prize for ‘Best Finishing Support Tool’ in the ‘Finishing/Enhancement’ category.

Modular Zund cutting systems are indispensable in a seamless digital production workflow. This was further evidenced by the fact that for finishing, exhibitors such as HP, Canon Océ, Kornit, and Dover Digital Printing all relied on Zund cutting technology. At the HP booth, a Zund cutter proved to be the perfect fit for finishing output from the company’s latex digital printing systems. At the Kornit and Dover Digital Printing booths, visitors were able to see live demonstrations of Zund’s ability to reliably, precisely, and efficiently process stretch fabrics for garment and home-furnishing applications, Zund said in a press release.

The ‘Digital Corrugated Experience’ section of the show was another area where Zund was able to establish many new contacts. With its own booth in the new demonstration and education area, Zund had ample opportunity to promote the benefits of digital production for packaging and retail displays in one-on-one discussions with industry representatives.

The positive effect of Zund’s high-visibility approach could be felt in the Swiss market leader’s order intake as well. “We are very happy with the contacts we made at the show. The quantity and quality of leads, as well as the international draw of the show, were a pleasant surprise. We got a lot of very positive feedback from visitors on the transparent, hands-on nature of the way we presented both our digital flatbed cutting technologies and our software solutions,” said Stefan Lang, head of sales and marketing at Zund.
