Zünd – a Switzerland-based high-end cutting technology company – has come up with a new software solution ‘PreCut Center’.
The software creates a simple and highly efficient workflow to generate cut files. PreCut Center first simplifies file preparation, then the output and lets the user select a level of automation based on individual production requirements.
According to Zünd, a fully nested file gets created quite simply and it depends on the users if they prefer a manual or automated process, basis which, the software allows for selecting the workflow that makes the most sense for a given production scenario.
After importing the desired shapes into Zünd PreCut Center, ZPC, the user can assign them to the corresponding recipes that are basically road maps for creating cut paths based on specific parameters.
“The recipes can be imported or created as needed by the user,” informed Zünd.
The next step entails defining materials and material parameters. The shapes are subsequently nested on the unprinted material. This process results in optimal material yield with minimal waste and reduced production time.
PreCut Center – ZPC also lets the user integrate selected metadata. Information printed along with the job facilitates job tracking and, once cutting is complete, enables quick and accurate attribution of cut parts to corresponding orders.
Zünd has launched the software in two versions – Basic and Pro, and the users can select any of them as per their needs.
