Zünd receives EDP awards for no less than three of its software tools. The jury declares PrimeCenter the ‘Best Workflow Solution’, while the pick&place interface option and the visualizing option are recognized as ‘Best in Robotics’ and ‘Best Print Support Tool’, respectively. 

Zünd is known worldwide for its advanced, high-performance digital cutting systems made in Switzerland. For some time now, the Swiss manufacturer has also been making a name for itself with user-friendly automation software such as PrimeCenter for prepress, as well as the visualizing option and the pick&place interface option for digital production. The latter are two highly effective solutions for removing/unloading cut parts, offering visual support and robot integration, respectively. On account of its exceptional know-how and consulting expertise, Zünd has evolved into a complete solutions provider in cutting/finishing workflows and automation. The market leader in digital cutting systems offers customers tailor-made workflow solutions for every step of digital production. In recognition of the wide-ranging benefits and exceptional price-performance ratio of these software solutions, a jury of experts from the European Digital Press Association (EDP) awarded them the distinction of ‘best in class’.

PrimeCenter automation software serves as control center for creating print and cut files and enables a highly efficient and productive prepress workflow. In a few clicks, users create fully nested print and cut jobs.

The pick&place interface option lets Zünd cut center – ZCC control a robotic device, enabling fully automated parts removal—picking, sorting, and placing at pre-defined locations.

The visualizing option provides visual support for parts removal. Cut parts are labeled via projection or monitor. The user is able to see at a glance which parts belong to which job and can apply labels for continuous track&trace.

For more than ten years, EDP has been evaluating products and developments in the graphics industry for excellence and for commendation through an evaluation process involving the EDP technical committee, a jury of experts, and finally, a general award assembly of EDP members. 


In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
