A voyage of discovery
Zünd digital cutting solutions recently stared on the Discovery Channel’s Innovations serieswhen the science and technology-focused series dedicated part of its recent episode to Zünd’s advanced cutting systems and the range of applications for which they can be used.
Introduced by actor Ed Begley Jr and featuring interviews with representatives from Zünd America Inc. and ZündSystemtechnik AG, the programme travelled from the USA to Switzerland to discover how the machines are built and configured for each individual customer for use in a broad selection of industries, ranging from the sign and display and packaging sectors, to the technical textile, fabric and leather markets, to the area of automotive and aerospace, as well as also being used in the manufacture of awnings, windsurfing sails and hot air balloons!
The show also demonstrated the ease of use offered by Zünd systems and highlighted how their modular constructions enables them to be reconfigured for use in conjunction with new materials and markets. As one interviewee noted, customers often purchase a Zünd cutter with the intention of using it for one sort of application, before recognisingits i potential to open up new revenue streams. markets.
Robert Sikich, the Producer of the TV series, said: “Advancements in science and technology continue to revolutionise the way we live and our aim is to inform viewers of these exciting breakthroughs.”
Peter Giddings, Sales Director at Zünd UK, added: “We feel that our technology is ‘literally on the cutting edge’, so it was fantastic to showcase the technology to a wider audience.”
He continued “We’ve recently re-opened our St Albans demonstration centre, so viewers interested in seeing the systems that were featured on the Discovery Channel can see for themselves how they can be tailor-made to meet specific needs.”
