Gerber Technology is revolutionizing the flexible materials processing industry with the launch of its end-to-end solution for mass production, which will be unveiled at the company’s annual technology conference, ideation, on November 4-6. The connected platform features the new Atria digital cutting solution and the October 2020 release of AccuMark® 2D and 3D, AccuNest™ and AccuPlan™. With decades of industry experience, a rich history of innovation and feedback from its global customer base, Gerber developed a next-generation, digital mass production solution that will offer the best throughput, quality and price per piece in the market.
The Atria digital cutting room leverages Industry 4.0 and IoT to seamlessly integrate with Gerber’s pattern design, cut planning and nesting solutions, which connects the entire mass production process from CAD to the cut room. Gerber’s latest product releases deliver what manufacturers need to succeed in the post-COVID world by integrating data management, improving efficiencies, reducing material waste, optimizing nesting and cutting production costs.
The Atria digital cutting room builds on the innovative spirit of Joseph Gerber, the company’s founder and the pioneer behind the first automated cutting solution. As the industry’s smartest machine to date, the Atria promises to transform mass production by improving overall throughput by 50%, reducing consumable usage by over 30% and improving material yield by 5% with zero buffer cutting in many applications at full speed. The intuitive solution will be a gamechanger for the workwear, denim, furniture, transportation and personal protective equipment (PPE) markets as it utilizes powerful algorithms to eliminate errors, reduces costs and ensure data integrity at every point in the process.
