The company will demonstrate cutting and milling on the Zünd cutting system, on a wide variety of materials, including coiled stock and hard substrates, and show visitors how Zünd’s advanced software systems can connect all production elements into a smart, automated print-and-run. -cut workflow.

To create additional efficiency in part removal, job tracking and even logistics, Zünd is also showing the visualization option, another part of the Zünd Cut Center’s user interface and workflow software. In addition to assisting the user in removing parts by projection, this option provides options for labeling cut parts. Printed and applied QR codes help streamline and facilitate logistics.

Zünd also offers the web-based monitoring and analysis software Zünd Connect. It captures performance and availability KPIs of cutting machines integrated into the Zünd production workflow and uses this data to calculate the overall efficiency of the equipment. Zünd says Connect reveals productivity losses and provides key performance indicators that help users further optimize their digital cutting operations.
