Design Packaging invest in Zund G3 120 mm High Beam cutter

Design Packaging invest in a new Zund G3 120 mm High Beam cutter.

Design Packaging Group Limited, a specialist in packaging solutions, have taken delivery of their new Zund G3 120mm High Beam cutter, to further their wide range of packaging services for its clients.

Established in 1988, the Company designs and manufactures a wide range of specialist packaging for clients across the world from their 36,000 square feet state of the art production facilities based in West Sussex, England. Design Packaging Group Limited offer complete customer bespoke packaging solutions, through innovative design, efficient service, and high quality finished products.

As customer demands diversified, intricate design work has become a major client requirement. The Company replaced their previous case maker machine with a newer, updated machine which shall further assist with specialist projects. The previous case maker was great to use, but the Company found that this new Zund technology offered the high degree of speed, accuracy and range of materials that were able to be processed.

In late 2018, the Company came across a Zund brochure dropped by a representative and were impressed with the different materials the Zund digital cutter was able to process. James Budd – Managing Director at Design Packaging Group Limited said, “The versatility and modularity the Zund cutters offered was a huge appeal to us, especially the ability to just swap modules to cut different materials. Having one machine that can make both samples and production runs was exceptional.”

Following a demonstration visit to the Zund Global Headquarters in Switzerland, Design Packaging Group Limited opted for the High Beam Zund G3 Cutter to give them the extra clearance when processing materials such as foam up to 120mm, making them one of the very few Zund customers in the UK to have this configuration. The machine further enhances the Company’s ability to provide a quick and efficient service to their customers.

The Design Team at the company create unique products with clean and clear cuts in the materials, ensuring that their customers would be able to transport their products safely and securely. James Budd said “It was a pleasure dealing with Zund, we were very impressed with the passion that the company showed. At no point did we ever hear anyone at Zund say we can’t do this; they were always able to find a solution to meet our requirements. We could tell Zund had considerable experience in digital cutting.”

The installation in early 2020 of the Zund G3 cutter is an investment for Design Packaging Group Limited, it enables the Company to maintain the highest quality service to their customers over the upcoming months and years. The Company is now able to offer quick turnaround from design to supply of samples and in to supply of production packaging. For example, “A new project design request comes in today, it’s design, produce and ship by the end of the following working day thanks to the speed and precision the Zund offers” said James Budd. Production runs are planned more effectively, thanks to the advanced Zund software tool which estimates cutting time for each job.

James Budd explains “the Zund technology allows us to push boundaries and improve our workflow, for example when customers wanted a logo on their product, in the past we would have had to setup a jig, we can make the process so much quicker with the use of the ICC Camera which detects the exact position of the material in the cutting area.”
