Zünd (Altstätten, Switzerland) is presenting its digital cutting solutions for the automotive and aerospace markets at JEC World 2019, Hall 6, Booth D27. Zünd systems are said to be suitable for processing demanding materials while meeting the highest safety standards.
Zünd cutting systems are systematically geared towards fully automated production, while also enabling gradual implementation with semi-automated options. The primary goal, Zünd says, is to achieve more throughput in less time.
Zünd cutters are reportedly able to cut a range of materials used in the composites industry, including raw materials like carbon or glass fiber, semi-finished products such as prepreg or thermoplastic organosheets, honeycomb, or foam core and related materials on a single, multi-functional cutting system.
The company says that its barrier-free data flow is key to establishing efficient production workflows. Zünd’s software automatically optimizes cutting contours and cut paths depending on the material and choice of tools. With the integrated nesting function, parts are laid out automatically for optimal material usage. Zünd’s cutting solutions are also said to be cost-effective due to high value retention, low depreciation, automation to reduce cost of labor, and high reliability to mimimize maintenance and downtime.
