For Frederik Möller and wide-format print service provider CCL in Hamburg, Germany, superior quality and perfect execution are what counts. Not surprisingly, he opted for a Zünd digital cutting system to increase productivity and expand the company's product offering.

With a trifecta of highlights consisting of the LM 100W Cut & Seal Laser Module, dual-beam D3 cutter, and RM-L routing system, Zünd attracted a lot of attention. The LM 100W Laser Module impressed with its efficiency in simultaneously cutting and sealing polyester fabrics. Exceptional productivity and high-level material-handling automation were in focus on the dual-beam D3 cutter with Board Handling system BHS. And on the G3, Zünd showed off the RM-L system's high-performance, fully automated routing capabilities with jobs processing wood and acrylics, illustrating some of the many new opportunities the powerful 3.6 kW spindle provides for routing rigid materials.

Wolverhampton based design and print specialists, Hughes Print, recently became Vivid Laminating Technology Ltd.’s first customer for their new 20 metre-per-minute Matrix MX-530S along with an Omni-Flow Deep Pile Auto Feeder. Hughes already had a Matrix MX-530P and were impressed by the quality and consistency of its output and so when it came to increasing their in-house capacity they looked to Vivid for a solution.

Tecnau is exhibiting a new cutsheet finishing solution at Print4All held from May 29th to June 1st at Fiera Milano Rho, near Milan.

Elitron’s dual gantry cutting system, Kombo TH, reaches new heights in productivity, flexibility and smart workflow management. It is now possible to work using 1 working area (3100 x 2000 mm) or divide the 3100mm width into 2 separate customized working areas, each with an independent gantry and cutting head. The automatic 40-sector vacuum system proportionally divides the sectors between the 2 customized working areas, to ensure the perfect hold of all media in both areas.

At Fespa 2018 Zünd is exhibiting a wide range of high-performance, multi-functional cutting systems configured for efficient, automated finishing. Solutions from the Swiss market leader are on display in various locations, including at Zünd booth B50 in Hall 1.2, in the Digital Corrugated Experience Zone, and at several booths of Zünd partners.

On Stand A50, Graphtec GB will demonstrate new, recently launched and existing plotter/cutters for a wide range of sign and graphics and digital printing applications. These will be shown running on the latest Graphtec Pro Studio dedicated software.

On Stand F20, AXYZ International will demonstrate the Trident hybrid CNC combined routing and cutting print finishing system. This powerful production workhorse enables large-format sign and graphics and print finishing specialists to increase output by as much as 50 per cent by comparison with standard CNC routers, whilst obviating the need for investment in two separate machines to carry out these dual requirements.

The popular CE series of cutting plotters from Graphtec has now been expanded with the introduction of the CE Lite-50 machine. Described as a “new category” small-format entry-level professional cutting plotter, it claims design and production capabilities invariably not found in any similarly positioned and priced machine.
