Zünd UK refreshes demo suite with new technology and adds new member to its team

Zünd UK has expanded its technology showroom to feature the latest digital cutting innovations and a new sales technician has also been appointed to present comprehensive demonstrations.

Thomas Scott joins the Zünd UK team in St Albans from large graphics and vehicle livery company CGI Bedford where he was an operator of Zünd systems — which has prepared him for the role of sales technician.

Visitors to the larger, refurbished Zünd UK demonstration suite will receive a tour from the Zünd UK team and an in-depth introduction into Zünd’s newest features. As well as the most up-to-date cutting machines, the latest advancements on display include an over-cutter camera and a laser cutting module, both unveiled at FESPA earlier this year.

The new Zünd Overhead Cutter Camera (OCC) is a single camera mounted over the bed to target and capture all the register marks on a substrate at once, boosting the productivity of cutting processes by up to 30 per cent.

Available for the Zünd G3, the new Laser Module is a 100W CO2 laser system able to accurately cut and seal polyester textiles in one step. This eliminates the time-consuming manual processes normally necessary to avoid fraying in soft signage, and therefore brings textiles up to 2mm thick in line with paper and PVC for POS applications.

The company is planning a number of open-house events in 2018 with this technology on show, but businesses interested in investing in the new modules or a whole new system prior to these events are invited to get in touch to arrange a one-to-one visit.

“We’re delighted to welcome Thomas Scott to Zünd in St Albans, where he’ll be guiding visitors around our stunning new dedicated showroom,” said Stuart Cole, managing director, Zünd Plotting Systems (UK).

“Zünd’s engineers and designers in Switzerland are constantly making improvements to our cutting tables and their complementary software, tools and modules so it’s important that our users can see the latest equipment here in the UK, in friendly, quiet surroundings away from noisy trade show floors.”

Cole concluded, “We’re leaders in automation, speed, accuracy, safety, flexibility, robustness and more, so our users are always welcome to have a comprehensive look under the hood of our machines.”
