Zünd now cuts both ways - knife and laser

In a move that is sure to shake up the digital textile area, Starleaton have announced that its supply partner Zünd, has introduced the LM 100W Laser Module, to cut and seal polyester fabrics in one efficient process.


Because of the modular head system employed on Swiss-made Zünd cutting tables, users can switch between many cutting modes plus routing, and now laser cutting and sealing. Sign and display applications are increasingly moving toward textiles, as was apparent at Starleaton’s Digital Textile Open House held at the end of September.
Zünd LM 100W laser 002“Textiles offer lightness, versatility, excellent colour rendition and handling for soft signage, theatrical backdrops or back-lit applications,” notes CEO Ben Eaton. “Edge-fraying has sometimes been a problem with solutions such as ‘hot knives’ and seam-sewing offering a partial remedy. Now with Zünd’s new LM 100W Laser Module, textile printers can cut and seal edges all in one go.”
Zünd itself claims that soft signage offers tremendous potential in the vast and diverse world of visual communication media. Polyester fabrics are beginning to conquer applications previously ruled by paper and PVC substrates. To facilitate cutting this material, Zünd developed the LM 100W laser module.
The LM 100W automates what has long been a separate, manual operation and thereby also eliminates the need for seaming. The LM 100W also delivers impeccable cut quality repeatability because laser cutting is a touch-free process and no hold-down is required during processing.
In minutes, one operator can convert a Zünd cutter to a full-blown laser-cutting system in a few simple steps.  Once the laser job is completed, it is just as easy to reconfigure the cutter with modules for knife-cutting, passé partout or routing.
The Zünd laser module is equipped with an air-cooled CO2 100W laser with a processing speed of 44m/144 ft per min. As a Class 1 laser, it requires no special safety gear such as protective glasses. The laser module is fully enclosed, which provides reliable protection for the operator.
