Zünd introduces Over Cutter Camera system
During the recent ISA trade show in Orlando, Florida, Zünd displayed its new Over Cutter Camera OCC, which allows the company’s cutting systems to more quickly process printed materials.
Zünd explains the fully automated OCC takes a single shot to capture all register marks at once, in a matter of seconds. The Over Cutter Camera OCC captures all points in a maximum area of 3.2 x 3.2 metres (126 x 126 inches) and can be added to any Zünd G3 cutting system.
With the Over Cutter Camera OCC, Zünd is providing what it describes as an expansion to the traditional method of sequential register-mark capture with an ICC camera. Sequentially capturing register marks to determine position and possible distortions of printed graphics is time consuming, explains the company, particularly in applications that require a lot of them.
The OCC system is powered by Zünd Cut Center ZCC and takes one image to register all marks visible in the working area. ZCC subsequently compensates for any distortions and Zünd explains the processing begins almost immediately. Even after a material advance, no user intervention is required. The OCC automatically captures all register marks after each advance, which helps create maximum productivity.
With the Over Cutter Camera, Zünd explains even the step of manually guiding the camera to the initial reference point becomes obsolete. For automatic QR-code file retrieval and high precision, Zünd continues to offer the ICC camera which captures each register mark one by one.
