It will supply and service its solutions itself, and Zünd solutions also remain available through Canon Production Printing, the aim is to further strengthen the cooperation.

The Zünd S3 and G3 lines are the most popular Zünd cutters in the ANZ print industry, and both will be on show at drupa. Local printers can contact Hawkins to arrange a time on the Zünd stand at drupa, either with him or Lars Bendixen.

Hawkins said, "Zünd provides quality cutting through its quality engineering, the machines are known for their longevity, there are some in ANZ that have been in operation for 20 years, and Zünd is also known for its software expertise. Cutting can be a complex process, Zünd has invested heavily in software to ensure that as far as the operator is concerned it is straightforward."
