Zünd cutting systems to be showcased at JEC World 2019

Zünd will showcase its industry-leading precision cutting systems to the composites sector at JEC World.

Zünd will be showcasing the latest developments in its modular digital cutting solutions for composites at the upcoming JEC World 2019 show in Paris (Hall 6, Booth D27).

Taking place between 12th and 14th March 2019, JEC World is the only trade show that unites the global composite industry and provides an international platform to explore the full spectrum of processes, new materials, and composite solutions.

Renowned for its expertise in resolving the challenges of processing the difficult materials commonly used in this industry while meeting the highest safety standards and capable of delivering the utmost in cut quality, Zünd is the digital cutting system of choice in the automotive and aerospace sectors.

The raw materials used in the composites industry - such as carbon or glass fibre, semi-finished products such as prepreg or thermoplastic sheets, honeycomb, foamcore and more - can all be cut on a single, multi-functional Zünd cutting system. Demonstrations of Zünd machines processing these materials will take place at JEC World 2019.

Zünd cutting systems are systematically geared towards fully-automated production, but they allow for gradual implementation with a wide array of semi-automated options. The primary goal is always to achieve more throughput in less time.

Barrier-free data flow is key to establishing efficient production workflows. With software solutions from Zünd, users are well equipped to handle the tough demands of a challenging market. The software automatically optimises 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. In view of the rising cost of materials, optimum material yield and uncompromising cut quality are essential to economical and profitable digital cutting.

Zünd's cutting solutions also excel in low total cost of ownership. In all cost factors involved in these calculations, Zünd cutters come out on top and - thanks to their remarkable value retention - depreciation is very low. At the same time, high reliability minimises maintenance and downtime, and with superior automation at any level, Zünd cutters help reduce the cost of labour.
