Mind and Zünd at SIMAC 2020

Fully integrated and networked shoe production

Mind and Zünd will show how digital, intelligently networked, automated shoe production work efficiently.

The entire range of Mind and Zünd integrated solutions will be shown, from the digital development of footwear prototypes to the latest software solutions for the entire production process, to the modular and automated cutting.

All the process steps, from design, modelling and prototype development with MindCAD 3D/ 2D, to costs and material calculation, the latest nesting functionalities to the automated cutting, will be explained to the public in detail.

The latest software from Mind and the brand-new Mind ShoeDesign software will be on hand to see live in action along the entire process chain.

The preview of Mind ShoeDesign will demonstrate its main features as a sketch tool giving the same design simplicity as pencil and paper, integrated with Adobe Illustrator MindCAD and other CAD systems, for a seamless design and engineering process.
