Zünd and Canon to demonstrate print and finishing workflow at open days

Zund demo centre 1

Zünd is to host two open days with Canon this autumn, giving customers in the signage and graphics industries an opportunity to see a range of printing and digital cutting equipment.

Taking place on Wednesday September 30th and Thursday October 1st at Zünd's demonstration suite in St Albans, the open house will focus on two of Zünd's popular cutting tables and feature equipment from Canon's Océ printing line.

The Océ Arizona 480GT is a versatile flatbed UV printer offering near photographic-quality prints on rigid or flexible media, with varnish and double-opacity white ink options, while the Océ ColorWave 700 is an ideal poster printer and classic all-rounder – a system designed for speed, security and ease of use for a range of in-house printing applications as well as reprographics and sign and display print service providers.

The Zünd G3 XL3200 CVE16 is part of Zünd's G3 range of digital cutting tables capable of processing materials up to 50mm thick, with maximum automation, safety and workflow efficiency. The Zünd S3 L1200 CVE12 has the S3 range's compact footprint and ability to cut materials up to 25mm in thickness. All Zünd systems are modular, meaning each individual user can order a machine unique to their needs and make changes or upgrades retroactively.

The event will see representatives from Zünd and Canon give demonstrations of each machine, with opportunities for visitors to see their samples being printed and cut, to ask questions and to meet other members of the industry. Visitors can also find out more about Zünd's part exchange deal where, until the end of 2015, Zünd is offering a discount on any new Zünd S3 or G3 digital cutting table in return for an existing XY cutter of any model and manufacturer.

"Our open house events are a great way to learn more about our cutting solutions as part of a workflow with Canon's printing equipment," says Peter Giddings, Sales Director, Zünd Plotting Systems (UK) Ltd. "Our demonstration centre, refurbished at the end of last year, offers a chance to get hands-on with the technology in a dedicated environment away from busy trade show halls and print rooms.

"We, together with Canon, are looking forward to welcoming visitors from across the printing sector in September and October."
