Tandem Vacuum for Cutter
The G3 digital cutting solution from Zünd (www.zund.com) now features tandem vacuum operation, a feature the company says increases workflow efficiency, keeps idle time to a minimum, and provides maximum productivity. With the tandem setup, the working area of the cutter is divided into two independently controllable vacuum plates in front and back. Each side is equipped with controls for turning the vacuum on/off and for resuming the cutting process. Once the material is properly placed on the cutting surface, the vacuum is re-activated and cutting can continue on that side of the machine. Zünd says another benefit of having two independent vacuum areas is the ability to turn off the vacuum in one or the other, thereby limiting it to the exact size of the material.
