At Grafitalia and Converflex, Zund partners Logics and ZundLAB organize presentations with live demos of Zund S3: the faste and highly technological digital system for cutting, dying and cordoning, operational for both graphic and converting tasks.

The helpfulness among the technicians of Logics, Italian partner of Zund in the converting market, benefits visitors to Converflex and Grafitalia, who were able to fitness firsthand how a Zund S3 multifunction cutting-plotter can be transformed into a digital box-making line. For many boxworks already capable of managing packaging production with analog cutting, cordoning, folding and gluing technologies – sometimes in combination with flexo and offset printing units – introducing Zund means being able to quickly, efficiently and precisely develop prototypes, low and medium runs of boxes and cases, both flat and corrugated board. For printed packaging, the Zund plotter is capable of cutting, cordoning and dying both pre-runs coming out of the analogic line and sheets produced by the digital printer. Powerful software like Zund Cut Center and PrepareIT make this integration not only possible but easy, enabling boxworks to manage pre-printing, printing and cutting in combination and within the same workflow. To complete the Zund offer the powerful design software Impact for packaging experts, and devices like the concern’s own Conveyor Belt and the BHS, which enable automatic loading, transferring and unloading of sheets of board from shelf to shelf.

Cutting without dying and quick prototyping – For its part, the Zundlab team, which is Zund’s graphic arts partner, makes itself available to show typographers and digital and silkscreen printers that digital cutting can lead to innovative and high yield applications. At center stage is digital die-cutting, prototyping and the creation of small and large lots of graphic and visual communicaton products.
Thanks to a wide range of functions, tools and hardware and software options, the Zund cutting systems can efficiently and economically manage finishing small and medium runs of sheet prints, from digital A3 format to the classic 70×100, 100×140, 140×200 and above. The possibility of loading countless types of large format supports, both rigid and in reels, has guaranteed a place for Zund cutting technology even among sign makers and concerns specialized in materials for the POP.
