The company's current service offering includes fabricated external structures, digitally printed glazing manifestations and wallpapers, way finding signage, digital signage, LED infused glass structures, contemporary name plates, interactive print via Near Field Communication (NFC) and signposting, among many others. The Zünd S3 will be installed ahead of some sizeable projects for Signbox's principal market, supplying a variety of environmental graphics for the commercial office sector. "We are one of many small British companies providing a personalised and proactive service to blue chip corporates," says managing director Mark Bartlett. "Everything we do starts and ends with quality, so in-house automated finishing is an important part of our offering.” Using a variety of sign-making and graphics substrates, the average production run for Signbox is over 100 linear metres – all of which needs to be professionally and accurately finished. "We were certainly convinced to invest in the Zünd S3 after the demo. We could see that the basic unit can be tailored to requirements but you then have the confidence to add further modules in the future,” says Bartlett. The Zünd S3 offers this precision thanks to its intelligent control technology, advanced drive system and modular tooling, which allows the user to order a configuration tailored to meet their specific needs. As a basic model it has a compact footprint but can be extended with additional and upgraded tools and material handling modules at any time, ensuring it is flexible enough to evolve with a business and keep its value for years. With exceptional safety standards, adaptable workflow options and high levels of automation, the Zünd S3 looks like the perfect choice for Signbox.
Signbox replace hand-finishing with Zünd automation
With volume steadily increasing for printed glass manifestation, wallpaper, vinyl and CAD cut graphics, Surrey-based architectural sign specialist Signbox has invested in a Zünd S3 L1200 precision cutting system to replace hand-finishing with digital cutting to increase precision, speed of turnaround and consistency in production.
