Zünd, during Ipex 2014, introduced a new set of functions for its S3 cutting system, including an automatic sheet feeder and tandem vacuum system.
The S3 is a modular cutting system designed to handle materials of up to 25 mm (1-inch) thick. At Ipex, Zünd showed an automatic sheet feeder for high-volume production environments. The new option of a tandem vacuum system for the S3 is designed to enable the loading or unloading of materials on one side of the cutter as production continues on the other.
Zünd also introduced its new EOT 250 electric oscillating tool to better handle sandwich board/honeycomb materials and cardboard. The air-cooled EOT-250 features an extended 2.5 mm stroke and high oscillating frequency.
The company also highlighted its Zünd Design Center, an Adobe Illustrator plug-in to create three-dimensional designs for packaging and displays. Zünd Design Center provides a library of templated designs in folding carton and corrugated cardboard. The software includes a 3D preview tool to consider measurements, logos, patterns and other graphic elements.
