At JEC World 2018 in Paris, March 6 - 8, the Swiss manufacturer Zünd (Altstätten, Switzerland) presents the latest developments in highly modular digital cutting systems for composites applications. At the center of attention will be the Zünd dual-beam D3 cutter designed for maximum productivity.

Zünd is known worldwide as a leading supplier of integrated digital cutting systems. With the help of Zünd technology, manufacturers can produce more parts in less time. They can bring products to market quicker, with optimal material usage, and in addition, can benefit from the fact that Zünd cutters are modular by design, offering multiple tool options to process an extraordinarily wide range of materials.

Advanced digital workflows demand a seamless flow of data. With the software solutions Zünd offers, the user is perfectly equipped to handle the vast and varied demands of a challenging market. The software automatically optimizes contours and adjusts cut paths for the type of material and specific tool being used. With the integrated nesting module, parts are automatically nested for optimal yield. Especially in view of mounting material costs, maximizing material usage without sacrificing quality is critical to making digital cutting productive and profitable.

With the D3 dual-beam system, Zünd offers an ultra-productive cutting solution. With two beams each carrying up to three different modules, the D3 system can process any number of materials including multilayered, woven and non-woven materials, films and fleeces twice as fast as a single-beam system. In combination with the Zünd Cut Center ZCC user interface and control software, the Zünd D3 is the perfect high-throughput solution for digitally cutting composites. As an example, the ZCC software automatically distributes the workload between the two beams and tool carriages as efficiently as possible. www.zund.com
