RMC Digital Print chooses a second Zünd
A second Zünd digital cutting table has been installed at RMC Digital Print, after the signage and exhibitions graphics specialist encountered a bottleneck in its workflow.
Following the installation of a Durst printer in January 2017, which doubled its flatbed printing capacity, the Hull-based business immediately required additional cutting capabilities in order to honour contracts and keep the print-room running 24/7. Its finishing department already ran a Zünd G3 3XL1600 and thus it decided to invest in a second Zünd machine, a Zünd G3 XL3200.
Nicole Spencer, Operations Director at RMC Digital Print, explained: “We needed to act fast to deal with the bottleneck created by the new flatbed printer and Zünd provided a really quick turnaround – about six weeks from ordering the G3 to its installation. Furthermore, as our existing Zünd runs day and night we knew reliability wouldn’t be an issue. It also cuts very precisely, which is really important when cutting hoarding or back walls for interiors, as being half a millimetre out can make a huge difference!”
The Zünd G3 XL3200 can process Dibond and ACM hoarding quickly and easily, thanks to its 1Kw Router module, while RMC Digital Print also upgraded its creasing tool to fold foam board or card material in on itself – a niche job for one of the company’s customers.
Nicole continued: “Our customers want fast turnarounds and often change deadlines, so we have to react quickly. The second Zünd enables us to pre-press the job just once and we know it will be finished accurately.”
RMC Digital Print chose the Zünd G3 XL3200, a narrower but longer model than its first cutting table, which also has a conveyor to feed roll materials. With its modular construction and different material handling options, the G3 can easily be tailored to suit specific cutting needs, making it a future-proofed cutting system that is ideal for the disparate needs of a wide range of businesses, while its Swiss design exceeds safety standards and offers the highest automation capabilities, thus increasing output and minimising human error.
In May 2017, Zünd Plotting Systems (UK), which is based in St. Albans, became a subsidiary of Zünd Systemtechnik AG, a family business based in Switzerland and offers a full and complete service to its customers in the UK and Ireland.
