Bay Cities installed the high-speed Zünd D3 Cutter. This state-of-the-art, large-format cutter delivers precision cutting solutions for any material by offering greater flexibility and adaptability.
“It is the most sophisticated cutting and creasing solution that exists commercially today,” says Brett Kirkpatrick, the company’s chief of operations. “This quick cutting machine will double our production speed and is ideal for mass customization.”
The Zünd’s cutting capabilities include dual cutting-head technology for more efficient processing, a distinctive modular design that allows for easy configuration of the required tooling, and integrated tool initialization that allows for the quick and precise setting of knives, creasing wheels, and router bits.
The cutting system is designed for speed and exceptional performance. Its energy efficiency also optimizes profitability, as it keeps energy demands low, contributing to the system’s eco-friendliness. Additionally, it has an advanced nesting feature that ensures optimal nesting, saving time and keeping waste to a minimum, according to Bay Cities.
It also allows for maximum productivity because of its ergonomic design and double-beam construction. Bay Cities reports it is the perfect complement to the company’s newly installed HP Scitex 15500 Corrugated Press, since both offer versatility and efficiency and provide substantial cost-effectiveness. The Zünd’s high-speed cutting ability goes hand in hand with the HP 15500’s high-speed printing capabilities by providing projects at a faster speed to market.
“By acquiring these new machines and their advanced technology, Bay Cities is providing the best solutions to their customers and continues to lead the way in the corrugated packaging, in-store signage, and point-of-purchase display space,” states the company.
