Zund digital cutting systems offer a unique variety of processing methods for a wide range of materials. At Fespa 2020 in Madrid, Zund will present a wide range of options for print service providers and advertising professionals to automate their Print&Cut workflow.

The modular concept that characterizes the entire range and the numerous automation solutions make every Zund cutter a top choice in cutting equipment. At Fespa in Madrid, Zund will show trade visitors how to trim their Print&Cut workflow down to maximum efficiency with the right software tools and the right hardware.

At the Zund booth, visitors will learn about the processing performance of Zund’s software tools and cutting systems. They will also experience the many ways they can process their materials – with high performance and maximum flexibility. The RM-L from Zund is a robust routing solution. With its power of up to 3.6 kW, the RM-L opens up a wide range of possibilities in terms of material selection. Combined with the automatic router bit changer ARC, router handling can be completely automated.

Digitally printed textiles are the latest trend in advertising. Innovative and universally applicable digital cutting solutions like the Zund G3 cutter are in demand for this reason. It will be in action at Fespa, cutting textiles to shape from rolls of up to 3.2 m in width. The Zund Cut Center ZCC operating software with associated registration system also offers a wide range of options. The Over Cutter Camera OCC, for example, records material position and distortion fully automatically and at lightning speed. The ZCC compensates for any material distortion and immediately starts cutting.

“Print service providers and advertising professionals are required to efficiently and economically produce individualized products in small batches and ultra short runs, with faster and faster delivery times. Zund offers the right workflows to meet these requirements while ensuring maximum efficiency and economy.”

2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.

The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry. While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.

The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.

Ultimately digital print and other digital channels will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.

Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
