FESPA VIDEO: Zünd highlights workflow solutions
The Zünd exhibit is illustrating how smart production automation offers savings potential even for smaller graphics manufacturers, for instance by eliminating the potential for errors.
Stand visitors are being introduced to PrimeCenter, the control centre for generating print and cut files. In live demos, Zünd is showing how the Pick&Place interface option controls robotic devices and fully automates the removal of cut parts and their placement at pre-defined locations.
To create additional efficiencies in parts removal, job tracking, and even logistics, Zünd is also showing the Visualizing Option, another component of the Zünd Cut Center user interface and workflow software. Besides assisting the user during parts removal through projection, this option offers capabilities for labelling cut parts. Printed and affixed QR-Codes help streamline and facilitate logistics.
Zünd also offers the web-based monitoring and analytics software Zünd Connect. It captures performance and availability KPIs from cutters integrated in the Zünd production workflow and uses this data to calculate Overall Equipment Efficiency. Zünd says Connect uncovers productivity losses and provides key performance indicators that help users further optimise their digital cutting operations.
