S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S • December 2017 • 37 files provided so their marketing depart- ment could change the design and cus- tomize each package for the recipient." He recalls he started with Artios to create a file capable of tightly wrapping the video components and sealing in the magnet trigger to work the screen. "Once we had that fully functional and provided them with workable samples, they began creating the artwork. That's when we began working on the die for the shipper which would also be custom printed for each individual run. We also supplied foam materials to hold every- thing in place during the delivery." He says they developed this with and for Hunter Engineering almost two years ago and they continue to use their design today. "Each time they refresh the artwork to create a whole new look, yet with each new use the product is now able to be put together the exact same way as the original. It really is an elegant presentation." Zünd Rolls Out LM-100W The recent SGIA Expo in New Orleans marked the official North American introduction of the new Zünd Cut & Seal Laser Module LM-100W for processing polyester fabric. "As the name implies, it simultane- ously cuts and seals the edges, eliminat- ing the need for post-processing to pre- vent fraying. With the modular design characteristic of Zünd, the laser module provides 100W laser cutting capabili- ties in addition to G3's full complement of cutting and routing options as well as automatic material advancing. Steel plates protect the conveyor belt while the laser is in use, and an integrated crane makes change overs quick and easy. To facilitate automatic, tension-free advanc- ing of these often high-stretch fabrics, Zünd offers a cradle feeder," Roden says. Earlier this year, Zünd also intro- duced the powerful 3.6k W router with ARC tool changer. The RM-L module features a robust routing spindle that delivers 3.6 kW of processing power and a maximum torque of 0.7Nm. Especially combined with the automatic eight-posi- tion tool/bit changer and minimal quan- tity lubrication, the RM-L routing system is perfect for processing acrylics, poly- carbonates, aluminum/ACM materials, MDF and other wood products—mak- ing heavy-duty digital routing efficient, productive, and profitable without the need for a separate CNC router. With the addition of the RM-L router and 100W laser, Zünd tooling has now expanded to six different modules and 20 different tools. "As PSPs are faced with ever-increas- ing demands for greater flexibility, cus- tomization and personalization, along with faster turn-around times and lower cost, Zünd's hardware and workflow The MCT VersaTech2 flatbed cutting system in action at the Circle Graphics shop in Longmont, Colorado.
