Wilmot-Budgen doubles two-sheet cutting productivity with Zünd automation
Point-of-sale specialist Wilmot-Budgen has doubled production speeds on two-sheet cutting processes following the installation of a brand new Zünd D3 XL3200 digital cutting table, combined with its existing Zünd Board Handling System.
The Zünd D3 features two beams and specially developed software to multiply productivity. The company says it is ideal for a wide range of applications including signage and graphics, composites, textiles and leather.
"We had been keeping an eye on Zünd's R&D and when we were told about the new Zünd D3 we made the purchase based on having it installed after its launch," says Peter Burford, operations director at Wilmot-Budgen.
"We were the first business in the UK to have the Board Handling System and are really pleased with it. It feeds, cuts and delivers material automatically allowing for longer runs to be unattended, and production speed on two-sheet cutting has doubled as anticipated.
“We have seen a further speed increase on single-sheet cutting due to optimisation in the software to take advantage of the dual beam configuration. Unattended operation levels are high and we now have 24-hour production on the system,” he says.
