3 Sixty expands with further Zünd digital cutting system
Cardiff's 3 Sixty has responded to growing demand for a number of different applications by investing in a flexible and versatile new Zünd G3 3XL3200. Apart from specialising in window displays, internal and external signage, point of sale graphics and national installation roll outs, 3 Sixty will manage and coordinate the entire project using its extensive knowledge in creativity, print production and installation. It also continues to push into new areas, including textile printing, for which it has met an increasing demand over the past year or so. ‘After nearly eight years offering a unique service our existing clients understand how we add value to their brand. We are now seeing the fruits of our hard work and dedication with new clients approaching us asking that we get involved in the early stages of their rebranding projects involving design, print, fabrication and installation. We are also constantly looking at new printing techniques and obscure materials and the new Zünd acquisition will allow us to explore more exciting opportunities due to its size and versatility,’ explained managing director Richard Inkin.
The company has been running a Zünd G3 for the past four years, alongside its three EFI Vutek printers, and a host of other specialised print and finishing equipment. Now, it has invested in the larger Zünd G3 3XL3200. ‘The 3.2 metre bed size means the new G3 covers the various widths of all of our printing machines,’ said Richard.
Like all Zünd digital cutting systems, the G3 has a modular design to allow it to be configured in a vast number of ways to meet the needs of each user – upon installation and in the future. Handling systems, modules and tools can be upgraded and swapped as requirements change and businesses expand.
For its new Zünd G3 3XL3200, 3 Sixty selected a 1Kw router spindle to enable routing on hard substrates including acrylic, ACM, MDF, Foamex, aluminium and others – in addition to the larger footprint's increased capacity for rolls of fabrics, banners, vinyls and other materials up to 3.2 metres wide.
