Gerber is set to display its industry-leading, end-to-end solution to support on-demand bespoke design through production as well as mass production at Texprocess expo, in hall 4.0, stand B31. The company will also participate in the Smart Textiles Micro-Factory exhibit. Texprocess is a leading trade fair for processing textile and flexible materials.
Gerber 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. The 50-year-old industry leader will be showcasing how their end-to-end solutions passed a real world test as they reveal the Waldrip Collection by Gerber. The collection is a collaboration between Gerber and designer Stephanie London. Every piece has been designed, developed, and produced with Gerber’s end-to-end solutions. Several garments were produced using Gerber’s unique digital print workflow that enables customised 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 press release.
Gerber will be exhibiting the industry-leading, integrated end-to-end solution on the market that seamlessly takes you from design to print to cut. With an aggressive product launch schedule planned for the year ahead, they will present 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.
All software is seamlessly integrated to the production floor, where Gerber will be showcasing the world’s first fully integrated print-to-cut workflow that will feature a Mimaki direct-to-textile printer and the GERBERcutter Z1 with ContourVision. These two solutions will be seamlessly connected using Gerber’s PrintSync concept.
This Industry 4.0 enabled, automated scan-to-cut system allows manufacturers to scan custom textiles, generate cut files automatically and cut directly from textile rolls. The PrintSync device on the single-ply Z1 integrates the printing and cutting process into a single step, increasing throughput and reducing labour. PrintSync is printer agnostic and can connect with any direct-to-textile printer with in-line drying capability.
In addition to their booth, Gerber will also be a key contributor to the Smart Textiles Micro-Factory exhibit, located in the passage between halls 4.1 and 5.1. The GERBERcutter Z1 will play an integral role in helping produce a smart pillow. The micro-factory was created by RWTH Aachen University in collaboration with partners from the industry.
