Zünd releases Cut Center 3.0 software suite

Zünd has added new functionality to its Cut Center production planning and job management software.

Zünd is introducing Version 3.0 of its comprehensive Zünd Cut Center – ZCC software suite, which is designed to offer additional and enhanced registration methods for even greater productivity, as well as an added, browser-based dashboard for remote access to all performance and production data.

The company has expanded its suite with new functionalities and another boost in performance and user-friendly operation. The new release includes a variety of intelligent workflow options. Additional registration methods are said to generate significant increases in overall productivity.

Version 3.0 now includes refined algorithms for capturing only those register marks essential for accurately determining position, skew and distortion. Consequently, the ICC camera targets only critical marks for capture, translating into productivity gains.

Dashboard is another highlight of the latest version of Zünd Cut Center. This new browser-based function visualises performance and productivity data of the Zünd cutters operating on the production floor.

Dashboard gives management and production staff easy, round-the-clock remote access to all relevant production data. Real-time job status can be viewed anytime, anywhere. Visualised statistics provide a clear, instantaneous overview of Zünd cutter productivity for user-definable time periods.

Quality and productvity

“Organisation and clarity are the be-all and end-all of smart production planning. That is exactly what Zünd's proven Cut Queue offers, with a tool palette that facilitates production planning and job management,” the manufacturer explains.

Cut Queue estimates production times and facilitates setup by visualising job contours. Many settings, such as overcut compensation and offsets for objects and cut paths, can either be handled automatically through hot folders or manually, at any time, via Cut Editor.

Hot folders automatically generate production-ready files from commonly used layout and CAD programs. This accelerates file prep and eliminates manual steps in job setup.

At the same time, the software also automatically optimises cut data for the shortest possible processing time by determining the optimal cut direction, cut sequence and cut path, closing open contours, smoothing curves, etc.

Cut Editor also provides such useful functions as crease-counter generation for high-quality creasing, powerful nesting features for maximum material yield, and a variety of routing features.
