Gerber is showing its innovations to support on-demand bespoke design through production and solutions that can scale from small batch to mass production at the ongoing Texprocess expo, in hall 4.0, stand B31. The leading international trade fair for processing textile and flexible materials is being held from May 14-17, 2019, in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
The company is pioneering the end-to-end process by providing their customers with a full suite of cutting-edge solutions that increase creativity, productivity and efficiency. Being the industry pioneer and leader since 50 years, Gerber is showcasing how their end-to-end solutions passed a real world test as they reveal the Waldrip Collection. The collection was a collaboration between Gerber and designer Stephanie London. Every piece was designed, developed, and produced with Gerber’s end-to-end solutions. Several garments were produced using Gerber’s unique digital print workflow that enables bespoke garment production with speed and sustainable practices. Other pieces were produced using integrated small batch production workflows, enabling Stephanie to adapt to trends and scale production to accommodate the demands of her consumer, the company said in a media statement.
Gerber is exhibiting the industry-leading integrated end-to-end solution on the market that seamlessly takes one from design to print to cut. It is presenting a number of their latest integrated technologies. These will include the newest releases of YuniquePLM product lifecycle management software, as well as AccuMark, the industry-leading pattern design, grading, marker making and production planning software, AccuMark 3D and AccuPlan.
The company is showcasing how data can be passed seamlessly to the cut room to industry 4.0 enabled smart machines like the Gerberspreader XLs Series and the Gerber Paragon line of multi-ply Gerbercutters that can process a job with the simple scan of a barcode.
In addition to their booth, Gerber is an integral contributor to the ‘Smart Textiles Micro-Factory’ exhibit, located in the passage between halls 4.1 and 5.1. The microfactory, created by Institute of Textile Technology (ITA) at RWTH Aachen University with partners from the industry, is producing a smart pillow from design through production.
“At Gerber, we have always put our customers at the centre of what we do, providing them with industry-leading, innovative solutions they need to meet today’s challenges. This year we are renewing our entire software portfolio through an aggressive product launch schedule, empowering our customers to create and produce in an instant and become a leader in innovation,” Mohit Uberoi, CEO of Gerber said.
