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.

  • Taking the hand out of hand layup

    Hand layup has a long history in aerospace composites fabrication, but it's not well suited for automotive composites manufacturing, where volumes are much higher. But the discrete placement of fiber reinforcements still has value. Research is pointing toward automated hand layup that might help this process bridge the aerospace-to-automotive divide.

  • Composites recycling: Gaining traction

    Recycling of carbon fiber, glass fiber and — at last — resins, is growing as new players enter the space.

  • Composites recycling becomes a necessity

    Boeing and Airbus each is generating as much as a 1 million lb of cured and uncured carbon fiber prepreg waste each year from 787 and A350 XWB production. If you include the entire supply chain for these planes, the total is closer to 4 million lb/year. And with the automotive industry poised to consume (and waste) more carbon fiber than ever, recycling of composite materials has become an absolute necessity. The technology is there, but the markets are not. Yet.
