In Industry 4.0 in general and processing composites in particular, an unencumbered flow of data is key to workflow efficiency. At the JEC World 2022 trade show in Paris/France from March 8-10, Zünd will demonstrate how data management, digital cutting, and downstream processes such as picking, sorting, and kitting, can be automated intelligently and based on specific needs.
With Zünd PreCut Center, the software automatically optimizes contours and adjusts cut paths depending on the material and choice of tools. With the integrated nesting function, parts are laid out automatically for optimal material utilization.  
With Pick&Place, Zünd Systemtechnik AG, Altstätten/Switzerland, presents a cost-effective solution for fully automated picking and kitting of cut parts. The Pick&Place interface enables direct communication with the robot via Zünd Cut Center – ZCC, the operating software and user interface. Pick&Place makes it possible to completely automate parts removal, kitting and placing. The necessary parameters are derived from the metadata supplied with the job order.
Carbon or glass fiber, semi-finished products such as prepreg or thermoplastic organo sheets, honeycomb, rigid foamcore, and auxiliary materials are all part of the wide variety of materials used in the composites industry. They can all be cut on a single, multi-functional system from Zünd. The cutting systems are systematically geared towards fully automated digital production workflows; even so, they allow for gradual implementation with a wide array of semi-automated solutions.
