“Short-run” and “just-in time” production is today’s standard for producers of packaging and display graphics. The new Zünd board-handling system offers even more efficient and fully automated digital cutting.
The fundamental advantages of digital cutting are well known by now. The elimination of traditional dies saves cost in production as well as space, since digital dies require no physical storage. The digital cutting process also makes it possible to create far more complex contours and permits even last-minute changes. In addition, tighter registration capabilities allow for printing larger sheets, and setup for digital cutting requires very little time.
High process reliability and automation
The new Zünd board handling system, designed for fully automated production of signage, displays, packaging, etc., further accentuates the advantages of digital cutting. This option, typical of the Zünd cutter concept, is highly modular and can be implemented gradually. With full automation of both the loading and unloading process, virtually no setup or operator intervention is required. And the Zünd Cut Center software, as always, ensures user-friendly system operation. All of this combines to significantly enhance productivity while limiting personnel requirements to loading and unloading pallets of stacked boards and finished product.
In developing this automated material-handling system, care was taken to not lose sight of the need for processing single boards. The accessibility and easy set-up of the system allows single orders and samples to be produced just as efficiently as the ever shorter and medium runs. Whether for shorter or longer production runs, the innovative Zünd board-handling system is the ticket to greater efficiency and new opportunities.
The fully automated production system will be presented to the public for the first time at Fespa Digital in Hamburg, Germany, Hall A1, Booth B20.
