Gerber to Take on Customer Challenges at Texprocess Americas

Tolland, Conn.–based technology company Gerber Technology is asking potential customers to bring the company their apparel-production challenges at the Texprocess Americas show, which runs April 24–26 in Atlanta, in an effort to expose them to their latest products.

Common hurdles—such as cutting difficult materials precisely at a high speed, eliminating bottlenecks with labeling cut parts, and getting products to market on time and at the right cost—will be addressed in demonstrations of Gerber’s suite of products at the show.

The company will be showcasing several new products, including its GERBERcutterZ1 computer-controlled, automated cutting system for single- and low-ply cutting of challenging composite materials, upholstery fabric and technical textiles; its ZipJet identification system, which prints alphanumeric text and bar codes on composite plies and cut parts to enable accurate identification during knitting and bundling; its YuniquePLM product lifecycle management system; AccuMark version 8.5 pattern design, grading and marking software; GERBERplotter XLp, which enables quick plotting of wide markers; the ContourVision automated scan-to-cut system; and GERBERcutter Z7, which is designed to cut up to 2.8 inches of compressed material.

These new products are in addition to the company’s existing computer-aided pattern-design systems, product lifecycle management software, and precision spreading and cutting systems.—D.C.
