Applications

Sign and Graphics

Distinctive means succesful

With its focus on innovation, Zünd has for decades been a driving force behind the astounding developments and growth of the graphics industry. The "simple" vinyl cutter/plotter of the past has evolved into a sophisticated, multifunctional digital cutting system capable of accurately matching cut to print while automatically processing a multitude of flexible and rigid substrates.

Simplicity at its best

Touch&Cut Vision software is the perfect link between your favorite design software and multifunctional Zünd cutters--intuitive, easy to use, and touch-screen based. With an integrated digital print and cut workflow, setting up a job for the Zünd cutter becomes as simple as scanning a barcode and selecting the appropriate cut profile for the material that needs to be processed.

Cut files can be manually generated using your preferred design software (Illustrator®, CorelDRAW®, AutoCAD®, DesktopCAD®, etc.); however, Touch&Cut Vision is also fully compatible with cut data generated automatically by Prepare-it or RIP workflows from Caldera, Onyx, Colorburst, and others.

 

 

For your market, your needs

Event marketing, sports and cultural sponsoring, and other types of advertising campaigns have created explosive growth in the demand for indoor and outdoor advertising. Meanwhile soft signage and the use of textile media are becoming increasingly popular.

To stay ahead, the flexibility and productivity of the Zünd digital cutter is just what you need. With a Zünd digital cutting system you can easily and efficiently cut flags, banners, and many other types of flexible signage materials. Up to 400 A1 size panels can be trimmed in just one hour, and vision registration guarantees perfect alignment of multi-panel jobs.

Packaging

 

Innovative Designs Efficiently Realized

Packaging manufacturers are perfectionists—much like Zünd. The road from concept to production-ready sample is often a long one. With Zünd samplemakers, you can shorten this process and make it more economical at the same time.

Samples showing alternatives in design, material, and functionality can be produced quickly and efficiently with a Zünd samplemaker. Beyond that, the Zünd’s capabilities in packaging can be expanded to include short-run production, foam cutting, and die-making.

In partnership with packaging professionals all over the world, Zünd has developed the most versatile, economical samplemaker available, and we strive to continually develop new options and solutions to meet our customers’ needs for productivity, accuracy, and reliability better than any other manufacturer.

 

From Sample to Production – Efficiently and Economically

High-quality samples are frequently the key to obtaining orders. The Zünd samplemaker gives you all you need to make packaging and display samples from folding carton, corrugated cardboard, and many other materials.

 

Universal modulesMultifunctional tangentially-controlled toolheads provide maximum, built-in flexibility in cutting, creasing/scoring, and plotting. Z-axis control allows for variable pressure settings in X- and Y-direction.

One Tool – Nearly Unlimited Potential

Foam is “in”: for product protection, as product carrier, insert in packaging, sample cases, and containers, for decorating, as well as promotion and advertising pieces.

 

foam cutterThe Zünd foam cutter can cut foam materials up to 50mm/2” thick, cleanly and accurately. Whether simple cuts or complex shapes, Zünd will efficiently perform any cutting task, and because of its modularity, can double as a samplemaker, too.

High Productivity at Low Cost

Until recently, the only way to cut ejection rubber was with water-jet technology.

Zünd now offers die-makers a simple, low-cost alternative. Within seconds, a Zünd samplemaker can be converted from producing sample boxes to cutting ejection rubber, giving die-makers two machines in one - at an unprecedented price-performance ratio.

 

Die makingWith the T75 module, you can “dry-cut” at various angles up to 15 degrees.

Composites

 

Prepared for the future!

Zünd flatbed cutting systems can easily be configured to cut carbon fiber, prepreg composites, aramid, fiberglass and other types of industrial fabrics commonly used in many industries. More and more, these technical textiles are replacing traditional materials, which makes it increasingly important for producers to have at their disposal the type of cutting-edge technology Zünd offers.

 composites

Wherever there is a demand for customized production, flexibility, and high productivity, Zünd’s single-ply cutter provides the perfect solution. The conveyor system, in conjunction with an optional integrated off-load table (conveyor extension) permits continuous cutting of rolled materials.

Because of the accuracy of the feeding system, it is no problem to cut parts that are longer than the table. Certain materials can even be cut in multiple plies. For applications that require part marking or coding, various plotting/marking systems are available as add-ons.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Leather & Textiles

 

Leading Manufacturers Count on Zünd Worldwide

For decades Zünd has been successfully supplying the leather industry with innovative cutting solutions. Hundreds of Zünd leather-cutting systems are in daily operation worldwide.

From cutting patterns to direct-cutting leather, the incredible flexibility and high performance of Zünd cutting systems guarantee low production costs. Changes in design or cut can be made on the fly and then easily incorporated into the production process. Zünd Cutter are therefore equally well suited for sample-making and serial production.

 

 

Shoes

Productivity in Pattern and Serial Production

We have the perfect cutting system for direct-cutting leather, used in traditional and orthopedic footwear manufacturing. It can be configured with a “dual table” function for pendulum production and nesting system.

 

shoesThe Zünd can also be used to cut the full gamut of shoe sole materials—sole leather, stabilizing materials, Texon and other non-woven insoles and linings. The pneumatic oscillating tool makes it possible to cut foam, cork, rubber and other materials used in orthopedic applications with superb accuracy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Upholstery

Economical Custom and Serial Production

If your application involves cutting upholstery fabrics from templates, the Zünd marker/cutter is the ideal solution for you. The cutting system and tooling can be configured to perfectly match your pattern-making materials and processes.

 

upholsteryFor cutting rolled materials, such as fabrics, synthetic leather, and stuffing, the Zünd single-ply cutter offers the flexibility you need. With a conveyor-advance system and optional integrated off-load table/conveyor extension, the system can be configured to minimize interruptions in the cutting process.  With certain materials, multiple-ply cutting is possible.

The Zünd 2XL-3000 large-format leather cutter, combined with cutting and nesting software as well as a projection system, is ideally suited for cutting whole hides. The most common configuration for this application includes the cutter with dual extensions (front and back), creating a loading zone, cutting zone, and off-loading zone for superior productivity and ROI.

Special applications

 

Printing/Varnishing Blankets

This relatively little known application for Zünd cutting systems involves cutting printing blankets for offset printing and spot varnishing. Whether simple shapes for adhesive tabs or complex contours for spot varnishing, the Zünd can handle the task with great precision and efficiency. This digital cutting process replaces manual positioning of varnishing plates, thereby making idle time for costly printing presses a thing of the past!

 

Passepartout

With the development of a 45-degree cutting tool as yet another addition to its modular tool palette, Zünd became the first supplier of high-volume, computerized mat-cutting systems. Because of their superior precision and speed, Zünd mat-cutting systems are now widely known for their high cut quality and exceptional productivity.

 

 

 

 

Gaskets

 

gaskets

Because of their solid construction, accuracy, and range of tool options, Zünd cutting systems are well suited for producing seals and gaskets. As die-less, digital cutting systems, Zünds are commonly used for prototyping and shorter-run production in medical, automotive, and other engineering applications

 

 

 

Architectural Model Making
