Following its acquisition by Swiss family business Zünd Systemtechnik AG earlier this year, St Albans-based Zünd Plotting Systems (UK) Ltd has announced an official name change to Zünd UK Ltd. The new, simpler name reflects a continued progression for the company, a leader in digital cutting technology.

Milton Keynes based Source Graphics have invested nearly £200,000 in some major equipment purchased from printing equipment specialist Josero.

Increased growth at Leeds-based Marshall Print had resulted in bottlenecks in the finishing department that were resolved by a fully automated Esko Kongsberg X24 digital cutting table with conveyor belt – sourced from and installed by CMYUK.

The display print market is going through a fundamental change, and to thrive and survive in this changing market, many successful sign and display print businesses are making the move towards higher productivity to meet ever-increasing customer demands.

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.

CMYUK, the leading independent supplier of digital print technology and materials, has signed a significant UK agreement with Esko, the manufacturer of the highly-regarded Kongsberg digital cutting systems, and developer of an extensive suite of workflow, automation and production-efficiency software.

Curtis Packaging has installed a Zünd S3 M1200 digital cutting table at its new Redhill premises. The company has invested some £1.3m in the move, along with other capital equipment purchases.

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 UK's largest Minuteman Press franchise, based in Bath, has invested in a Valiani Optima V 250 flat-bed cutting table from Morgana Systems to provide a quality short-run in-house cutting facility.

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.

If you didn’t make it to Drupa you would have missed Esko launching its new CorruSpeed tool, a brand-new tool for its Kongsberg family of cutting tables designed for high-speed cutting of corrugated board without oscillating. The result is cleaner, more accurate cuts comparable to conventional die cutting, bringing the highest quality of digital finishing to the corrugated market. Tools are available for Kongsberg C Series, X Series, XP and XE cutting tables.
