Z?nd makes waves
The Z?nd Cut Center software will be one of the innovations being demonstrated at Fespa 2010. The new software is tailored specifically for the G3 and designed to maximise the productivity of the company's latest generation of multifunctional digital cutting systems. At the show Z?nd Cut Center software will be driving a G3 L-2500 with semi-automated board handling as well as a G3 3XL-1600 configured for 3.2m wide roll materials. A Zund M-800 will also be shown with fully automated sheet feeding as the ideal setup for cutting screen-printed decals and other smaller-format applications.?
Key features of the Z?nd Cut Center are:
. ? ?Cut Queue provides quick file retrieval and access to the production schedule for job prioritisation.
. ? ?The algorithm behind the software's 'Best-Fit' compensation corrects for the most non-uniform distortions, including those seen in printed textiles.
. ? ?Cut Editor offers advanced editing functions, such as router hatch/island fill used to create pockets in rigid substrates, overcut compensation to eliminate unsightly cuts on inside corners, etc.
Throughout Fespa Z?nd will host presentations by software companies that support Z?nd Cut Center. To date, the list includes Caldera, Wasatch, Colorgate, Ergosoft, and Ardensoft. A brand-new version of the Prepare-it software will be presented as well.
