Gerber Technology announces the launch of its new end-to-end solution for mass production with the aim to revolutionise the flexible material processing industry.
The technology will be unveiled in the upcoming annual technology conference, ideation, from 4 to 6 November.
The new solution is a connected platform that integrates the features of new Atria digital cutting solution, AccuMark® 2D, 3D, AccuNest™ and AccuPlan™.
The Atria digital cutting room is equipped with the power of industry 4.0 and IoT to seamlessly integrate with Gerber’s pattern design, cut planning and nesting solutions. This therefore helps in managing the entire mass production process starting from CAD to the cutting room.
The solution also integrates data management capabilities that would help in improving efficiencies, reducing material waste, optimising nesting and cutting production costs.
Lenny Marano, Chief Commercial Officer at Gerber Technology, explains “New normal COVID era is a challenge for many manufacturers and requires them to be agile and innovative. The Atria is backed by Gerber’s end-to-end solution that will allow companies to easily adapt and respond to consumer demands and market challenges.”
The Atria digital cutting room is developed on the innovative spirit of Joseph Gerber, founder and the pioneer behind the first automated cutting solution. The machine promises to increase the overall throughput by 50 per cent, reduce consumable usage by 30 percent and increase material yield by 5 per cent.
The solution is said to be an ideal solution for the workwear, denim, furniture, transportation and personal protective equipment (PPE) as the advanced algorithms help in eliminating errors, reducing costs and ensuring data integrity at every point in the process.
One of the early adopters of the Artia technology is GDI Grupo Diamante Internacional, manufacturer of professional uniforms. The company claims to be able to cut 30 per cent more material since implementing the Atria technology into their workflow.
