Zünd (Franklin, Wis., U.S.) will present a variety of digital cutting and workflow solutions tailormade for the composites industry at CAMX 2019, September 24-26, Booth G30.
Especially in the automotive and aerospace sectors, Zünd’s modular, customizable cutters have long been the system of choice for many of the world’s most renowned manufacturers. Zünd systems are ideal for processing demanding materials while meeting the highest safety standards.
Raw materials that can be processed using specially designed Zünd cutting and routing tools include dry or prepreg carbon fiber, fiberglass, thermoplastic organo sheets, honeycomb and foam-core materials and more. Zünd cutters enable all of these to be cut on a single, multi-functional cutting system that also offers a range of marking and labeling tools.
With the aim of achieving more throughput in less time, Zünd cutting systems are systematically geared towards fully automated production; nevertheless, many options are available for gradual implementation with semi-automated production workflows. Software solutions from Zünd range from prototyping to fully automated production. Zünd software automatically optimizes cutting contours and cut paths depending on the material and choice of tools. With integrated nesting functions, parts are laid out automatically for optimal material usage.
