Zund Cutters

Zund Cutter

We do a lot of custom routing at Nonstop Signs and Zund is one of our favorite brands of routers and cutters. When we look for a cutter, Zund is the brand we trust.  Zund Cutting Systems is a great company based that started in Switzerland in 1984.  Zund still operates in Europe but they do have a division called Zund America that operates in the USA.  Basically, Zund cutters are known as the highest quality cutting system in the printing industry. They serve several different cutting purposes so we will take a dive into each one below.

A Zund cutter is different than other cutters and routers because they operate on a large flatbed Zund table.  Zund routing is considered the leader in digital cutting.  The Zund cutting mechanism then hovers over the table to cut, route, score or anything else you tell it to do.  Zund cutters come with their own software, so you can save your file for Zund cutting by creating a die line on a separate layer.

Zund Routing Abilities

Zund Cutters are great for creating the following products.  We have used Zund cutting to cut down 4×8 sheets in less than 1 minute each.  That is a serious horsepower!

Zund Servicing

Most Zund digital cutters are sold with at least a 1-year on-site service warranty.  For operational purposes, the only pieces that are disposable are the knife mat cutters.  These machines do take up quite a bit of real estate so make sure you have room for it if you are buying one.  The mat on the cutting tables can sometimes get damaged from the knife cut angle so you will want to make sure you are keeping an inspection eye on the Zund router.

 

Zund Software

Amazingly, Zund cutters come with their own software that streamlines production workflow.  We’ve watched the knife cut over 32 square feet per minute while doing a contour cut on a sheet of Foamcore!
