Like its highly successful predecessor, which was launched in 2017, the Zund cradle feeder 100 is capable of advancing stretch fabrics from rolls completely without tension and resulting distortions. The integrated unwind-control system continuously monitors the rate in which the material is fed onto the cutter and manages that process with even greater precision than the previous model. Having undergone further development, the new cradle feeder 100 now offers even more functions and is smarter than ever. The cradle feeder 100 comes with an integrated cut-off system, intelligent controls and smart roll-off features that take textile cutting to new levels of productivity and automation.
At the heart of the technological advances that come with new feeder is the optional integrated cut-off feature. It slices through the material at the end of a marker even while the cutter is still busy cutting. This makes it possible to switch rolls and prepare for the next job without interrupting the production process. Especially for users who frequently need to process short markers, this translates into significant time-savings in job preparation and setup. The cut-off function can be initiated manually by the user or set to occur automatically in the cutter software.
