Zünd receives EDP awards for 3 of its software tools: The PrimeCenter was awarded the “Best Workflow Solution”, while the Pick&Place Interface Option and the Visualizing Option are recognized as “Best in Robotics” and “Best Print Support Tool”, respectively.
Zünd Systemtechnik AG, Altstätten/Switzerland, is known for its advanced, high-performance digital cutting systems. It now also offers user-friendly automation software such as PrimeCenter for prepress, as well as the Visualizing Option and the Pick&Place Interface Option for digital production. The latter are 2 highly effective solutions for removing/unloading cut parts, offering visual support and robot integration, respectively. The company offers customers tailor-made workflow solutions for every step of digital production. In recognition of the wide-ranging benefits and good price-performance ratio of these software solutions, a jury of experts from the European Digital Press Association (EDP), Zell am Moos/Austria, awarded them the distinction of “Best in Class”.
PrimeCenter automation software serves as control center for creating print and cut files and enables a highly efficient and productive prepress workflow. In a few clicks, users create fully nested print and cut jobs. The Pick&Place Interface Option lets Zünd Cut Center (ZCC) control a robotic device, enabling fully automated parts removal, picking, sorting, and placing at pre-defined locations.
The Visualizing Option provides visual support for parts removal. Cut parts are labeled using projection or monitor. The user is able to see at a glance which parts belong to which job and can apply labels for continuous Track&Trace.
