Zünd UK has continued its expansion in the fabric and textiles market, by showcasing the LM 100W laser module at its St Albans base.

The Zünd LM 100W laser module cuts and seals the edges of polyester fabrics, which eliminates the need for manual cutting

The new laser-cutting system cuts and seals the edges of fabrics, which takes the focus away from manual cutting, seaming, and finishing. This particular quality is aimed at use in the fashion, apparel, interior décor, and sign and display industries.

Stuart Cole, managing director of Zünd UK, comments: “The LM 100W laser module is a completely new piece of technology and a perfect addition to our recently renovated showroom in St Albans. We’re welcoming professionals from across the UK’s design and manufacturing community to see its incredible capabilities in the flesh.”

Zünd technology has already been utilised by fashion houses and suppliers. Blur, a Portuguese digital textile printer, runs a Zünd G3 L-2500 cutting system as a part of its production workflow.

“With the Zünd G3, we can now offer in-house digital cutting. This greatly benefits our customers since we can now deliver fully finished parts with only the sewing left to do,” explains Mariano Dias, founder of Blur.

Dias adds: “The G3 system unwinds and advances the material entirely without tension, leaving it perfectly flat for processing. Different fabrics may have different tensile properties, but with the ability to efficiently capture printed register marks, we can easily compensate for any distortions.”

The module is the latest from Zünd’s laser technology offering

The LM 100W laser module is the latest of additional technology for cutting tables, which are produced ready for extra attachments—a way of future-proofing and upgrading existing cutting tables.

Savi Customs, based in America, also invested in Zünd technology, and brought digital cutting services in-house. With the Zünd S3 L-1600, Savi can produce its range of sportswear and manage the process more successfully.

Jeremy DeBoer, manager at Savi Customs, says: “We knew we had to get better control of the way we were doing things and looked at all our options. But considering its ease of use, open interface for easy integration in our production workflow, not to mention its versatile, zero-emissions operation, we knew Zünd was the perfect choice for us.”
