Gerber unveils Pivex Punch for its leather cutting systems
Jan '15
Gerber Technology, one of the leading companies that provides sophisticated hardware and software systems to automate and more effectively manage product design and manufacturing processes, has announced introduction of a new accessory—the high capacity Pivex Punch—for its line of Taurus and Taurus II leather cutting systems.
The new accessory offers increased automation and production capabilities and Taurus and Taurus II systems will now be able to cut and punch heavy leathers (up to 12 ounces) when utilising Gerber’s patented Pivex reciprocating knife head with the new high capacity Pivex Punch.
Designed with apparel and accessory manufacturers in mind, the high capacity Pivex Punch is ideal for Taurus users who produce items that require precisely placed and consistently sized holes in heavier leather hides, such as belts, footwear, handbags, watchbands and jackets.
“The Taurus II leather cutting system represents a very strategic product line for Gerber and we will continue to drive innovation for this segment of the market,” said Tom Gordon, director of industrial products, Gerber Technology.
“The high capacity Pivex Punch is just another way we’re helping Taurus and Taurus II users maximise their return on investment by providing expanded functionality to their production automation capabilities,” he added.
High capacity Pivex Punch starter kits are available in 2 size ranges: 2-4 mm and 5-7 mm. Each kit includes 2 punches of each size (2, 3 and 4 mm for the small starter kit and 5, 6 and 7 mm for the large starter kit), and all hardware required to operate two punches simultaneously. The kits can be installed by the customer in a matter of minutes. 
The high capacity Pivex Punch option can be installed on any Taurus XD/XM or Taurus II SLD/SLS with Pivex. Pivex upgrades are available for Taurus XD/XM and Taurus II SLD/SLS customers currently operating Taurus 4-tool systems seeking to gain the precision, throughput and yield of the Pivex reciprocating knife head in their production.
Based in Connecticut, USA, Gerber Technology is owned by Vector Capital, a San Francisco-based, global private equity firm specialising in the technology sector that manages more than US$ 2 billion of equity capital.
Gerber Technology serves 25,000 customers, including more than 100 Fortune 500 companies, in the apparel, retail, composites, technical textiles, and other industries in 130 countries. (RKS)
