Modules

Universal Module

The Universal Module accommodates a wide range of tools for many different functions. High processing speeds, stability, and proven technology distinguish the Universal Module for the S3 line of cutters. The Universal Module makes adapting the Zünd cutting system easy and cost-effective whenever needs change. Switching from one application to another happens in a few simple steps. A bayonet lock allows for quick tool changes. The module can operate in either pressure or position mode.

Punching Module

The Punching Module makes it possible to efficiently and reliably punch symmetrical (round) holes in a variety of materials, e.g. leather, rubber, and synthetic materials. Two punches accommodate tools in different sizes (from Ø 0.5 mm to 5.5 mm) and grades of steel (HSS or carbide).

For reliable, high-quality results, the punch action of the tool is immediately followed by a tool rotation, The waste material from the holes is sucked into a container located at the back of the module. The waste container can easily be removed for emptying.

Kiss-Cutting Module

The main features of the Kiss-Cut Module are low weight and minimal stroke, guaranteeing maximum processing speeds. In addition, this module excels in ease of use, quick tool changes, and high precision. Depending on the application, you have the option to choose between two processing modes: In pressure mode, the module exerts constant, user-definable pressure (between 30 and 1600 grams) on the substrate. The top layer of pressure-sensitive materials is cut cleanly and accurately, without damage to the liner. In position mode, the tool through-cuts the material to a set depth. The Kiss-Cut Module accommodates the universal cutting tool, a cutting tool with integrated, height-adjustable glide shoe, and a drawing/plotting tool.

Marking Module

The Marking Module accommodates various pens and drawing implements. Typical applications include plotting of dielines with ink pen on polyester, pattern marking for leather applications with silver pen, or labeling of patterns with ballpoint pen. All available Zünd drawing inserts can be used with the Marking Module. Pneumatically driven, this module offers high processing speeds and requires no maintenance.
