3 Sixty expands its creative display solutions
Cardiff’s 3 Sixty has responded to a growing demand for a number of different applications by investing in a flexible and versatile new Zünd G3 3XL3200 cutting system.
3 Sixty doesn’t use the word ‘innovation’: in reality, clients approach the company with ideas and concepts that are not only solved and delivered but which also exceed their high expectations. Apart from specialising in window displays, internal and external signage, point of sale graphics and national installation roll-outs, 3 Sixty manages and coordinates the entire project and covers everything from initial design to final installation.
At the same time, it is also diversifying into new areas, including textile printing, for which it has seen an increasing demand over the past year or so.
Richard Inkin, the company’s Managing Director, explained: “After nearly eight years offering a unique service, our existing clients understand how we add value to their brand. We are now seeing the fruits of our hard work and dedication, with new clients now requesting that we get involved in the early stages of their rebranding projects. We are also constantly investigating new printing techniques and sourcing obscure materials and the new Zünd machine will enable us to explore more exciting opportunities due to its size and versatility.”
3 Sixty has been running a Zünd G3 for the past four years, alongside its three EFI VUTEk printers, and a whole host of other specialised print and finishing equipment. This autumn the company decided to invest in the larger Zünd G3 3XL3200.
Richard added: “The 3.2m bed size means the new G3 covers the various widths of all of our printing machines.”
Like all Zünd digital cutting systems, the G3 has a modular design that enables it to be configured to meet the unique needs of each user, both upon installation and in the future. Handling systems, modules and tools can be upgraded and swapped as requirements change and businesses expand.
For its new Zünd G3 3XL3200, 3 Sixty selected a 1Kw router spindle to facilitate routing on hard substrates, including acrylic, ACM, MDF, Foamex, aluminium and others, in addition to the larger footprint’s increased capacity for processing rolls of fabrics, banners, vinyls and other materials up to 3.2m wide. The system was installed in late November 2017.
Stuart Cole, Managing Director of Zund UK, said: “Whether it’s routing acrylic or cutting textiles, the Zünd G3 is a precision machine designed for use in a multitude of environments. 3 Sixty has been a valued Zünd customer for the past four years so we’re delighted to see the business expand with a larger model which can continue to grow with it.”
