Zündpresents MindCUT Studiooffering a powerful, modular software suite for automated textile cutting.With MindCUT Studio, Zünd offers a modular software solution that largely automates digital textile cutting from capturing materials, to creating production markers, and facilitating parts removal in a well-designed, thoroughly integrated, comprehensive digital print and cut workflow.
In the first step of the process, a camera system captures the material, its exact position and dimensions. It makes no difference whether the fabric is patterned, plain, or digitally printed. For printed textile applications, an Over-Cutter Camera system captures all registration marks simultaneously. In case there are no register marks, the OCC can alternatively record the position of images based on printed outlines. If no cut data is available, there is an option to generate it automatically in MindCUT Studio. Also material defects can be marked in advance to avoid being noticed only after cutting.
The system can also automatically recognize patterns and any distortions that may have occurred. When compensating for distortions, the dimensional accuracy of the parts and their exact placement on patterned fabric are precisely maintained. The software also provides pattern-matching options, regardless of whether the textile has a stripe pattern or is plaid.
MindCUT Studio has the ability to automatically import standardised data and process it. The system recognises both part and marker-based data. In addition, MindCUT Studio lets the user create individual markers. The software uses powerful nesting algorithms to lay out parts on the fabric for maximum material usage and automatically creates production markers. MindCut Studio provides colour coding and parts information both projected onto the cut pieces and displayed on the monitor.
Zündhas built robust turnkey cutting solutions with state-of-the art specialised tooling, sophisticated vision systems, and highly efficient digital workflows. This empowers the user with ultimate flexibility when it comes to cutting applications, choosing materials, and controlling delivery times.
