UK based Specialised Canvas Group have been a loyal customer of Zünd for many years, and until now they were using their Zünd PN Series, installed just over thirteen years ago. The company recently installed their second Zünd digital cutter, in a move to double production capacity and support the growing demand for their extensive range of products and services.
The business have been a loyal customer of Zünd for many years, and until now they were using their Zünd PN Series, installed just over thirteen years ago. Managing Director Paul Noble said, ‘The business needed to increase productivity to keep up with the increasing demands from our customers and ensure we continue to provide them with an excellent level of service.’
Noble continued, ‘Zünd digital cutters are well known in our industry – the build quality, precision and productivity of these state-of-the-art cutters offer is outstanding. Furthermore, our existing relationship with Zünd through our existing PN Series machine meant we knew the level of service we would get, and that they’re a company that would go above and beyond for their customers. Having visited the Zünd demonstration facility in St Albans, we were sold on the modularity and productivity the current generation of Zünd cutters offered. It’s giving us capacity beyond our necessity and ensures there is further room for growth, which is a very desirable position to be in.’
In addition, Specialised Canvas Group are also using their increased cutting capacity to offer a material cutting service, designed to help businesses of all different shapes and sizes meet their cutting needs by providing them with a fast, convenient and reliable service. Noble concluded, ‘The cutting service is certainly proving popular and the G3 Zünd Cutter’s ability to cut a wide range of materials up to 3.2m wide is a major reason for this.’ The Zünd G3 3XL -3200 Digital Cutter is already up to speed, running 3 shift productions.
‘Specialised Canvas are the first customer in the UK to have an Over Cutter Camera OCC. The OCC is an intelligent optical system for fully automated digital capture of register marks. The camera is mounted above the centre of the cutter and captures all register marks within the working area of the cutting system in a single image in a matter of seconds. This reduces manual intervention in the production workflow to a minimum and increases productivity,’ said Dean Ashworth, Sales and Marketing Manager Zund UK.
