Fast execution for more creativity
“When we work with designers, we are now able to produce models based on their drawings in short time, so our employees can start folding, and we can decide on adjustments. In a single work-day, we can create several variants of a new design – and quickly decide on the further course.
This was virtually impossible in the past. For each new idea or design, a brass roller had to be made by hand. Now it just requires that we have a digital drawing so that we can create a new product.”
Optical camera to control markings in the crease-lines
“Some of LE KLINT’s lampshades, e.g. Caleo, have markings printed in the crease-lines. It creates a beautiful effect but requires very precise creasing. We plan to use the new optical camera for this. It can correct for minor tolerances, and ensure that the cutter creases precisely in the print”
Precision above all!
“The old machine creases at a steady, constant pressure. The new one can adjust the pressure according to given parameters, and this is something we intend to use much more. It means a lot that we have the same uniform creasing when we subsequently have to fold the lampshades. When we talk adjustments, it is in tenths of a millimeter – that is not a lot. It does not take much before the thin, delicate material is cut through or becomes difficult to shape. ”
Reliability and a stable production
“Our Zünd machines are in use every day.
We have a good collaboration with Zünd Skandinavien who are very responsive whenever we need their assistance. Generally, the machines just keep running, so it has been very limited with how much service we have needed.”
