Hull-based packaging and POS specialist Garthwest has invested in a Zünd G3 L2500 automated cutting system with camera recognition that reads registration dots printed outside the main printing area and cuts accordingly. 

The company intends to use the new G3 for shorter, customisable packaging runs for clients at a lower cost and quicker turnaround time than if it were to make new forms for each job manually. 

Design Studio manager Paul Dixon says he was skeptical at first: “I admit I was sceptical at first about how much of a difference the camera would make but it really has. We're no longer creating a manual jig for each new job which has resulted in time and cost savings. The Zünd gets it right first time every time.”

The G3’s modular configuration has also allowed Garthwest to add new knife tools and to change a module to provide greater pressure for improved sample quality.

The company works mainly with corrugated cardboard but also some plastic and Foamex, all of which the Zünd G3 flatbed cutter can handle up to a thickness of 50mm.

The business produces POS displays for film and TV, which Dixon says is 'absolutely fantastic work' that is always in demand.

The new Zünd cutting system has been installed alongside a Fujifilm Acuity four-colour wide format printer.
