Zund cutter enhances GWP’s focus on product development

GWP are pleased to announce the newest addition to our manufacturing capabilities – a Zund G3 Digital Cutting system.

Purchased to support and enhance product development (a key area of focus for GWP), Zund G3 cutters are extremely versatile, accurate and can utilised to produce a wide range of prototypes and products.

With vast experience of supplying precision cutters, Zund offered GWP the perfect solution for creating prototypes and samples quickly and efficiently.

The Zund equipment will assist in supporting GWP’s drive for new product development by allowing the fabrication of a broad range of materials including corrugated board, fluted polypropylene (Correx®) as well as low and high density foams.

Benefits Offered by the Zund G3 Digital Cutting System

Having initially visited Zund UK’s demonstration suite in St Albans to view the G3 digital cutter, the unit has now been installed at GWPs’ Cricklade production facility.

It has been specifically built to meet GWPs’ exact requirements whilst also being fully compatible with existing CAD systems used throughout our design departments.

Used for prototyping and producing various products for a number of blue chip clients in the defence, automotive and aerospace sectors – including Honda, Nissan, Toyota and Chemring – the Zund cutter will encourage efficiency and creativity in the designing process of ideas and bespoke products.

David Pedley, CEO at GWP Group, said;

The Zünd machine has been purchased to support our drive for new product development and will help to produce prototypes across a broad range of materials, including corrugated board, high and low density foams and fluted polypropylene. It complements nicely the other rapid prototyping equipment we have including three axis routers, water jet and laser cutters.

We chose Zünd because of the high quality and versatility of the machine. It has a very user friendly interface. I was impressed with the service support facilities in the UK and ready supply of accessories and spare parts.
