Gerber Technology, one of the leading providers of sophisticated automated manufacturing systems for apparel, retail, technical textiles and other industries, has announced designing of its next generation pattern plotters, the GERBERplotter MP Series.
 
The GERBERplotter MP Series is engineered to ensure long-term reliability and maximize users’ return on investment, according to the company. All MP series components are constructed of high-grade aluminum and injection-molded parts, and are thus designed for durability, even in the most challenging manufacturing environments.
 
The MP Series’ design minimizes moving parts and uses optimized and consolidated circuitry, ensuring long term reliability while making it easy to service and maintain. LED indicators on the front of the unit show the machine’s current status, including when preventative maintenance needs to be performed. Those indicators, along with low cost and easy to use preventive maintenance kits, help ensure maximum uptime. 
 
Talking about MP Series, Ron Ellis, senior product manager, Gerber Technology, says, “We designed the MP Series plotter with the understanding that reliability is our customers’ number one concern. Through several unique and innovative engineering enhancements, we’ve created a plotter we know can withstand the stresses of a high-volume production environment for a very long time.”
 
The MP Series can consistently print on as light as 20 gram paper using either standard HP 51645A ink cartridges or Gerber’s proprietary Ultra ink, which delivers up to 20 percent more print yield at up to 20 percent less cost than OEM cartridges. These new consumable options greatly reduce operating costs, allowing users to quickly maximize their return on investment, the company said.
 
Additional options such as its 100lb (45kg) Take-Up Bar and Print Head Parking Station make it extremely versatile. The 100lb take up bar allows for continuous printing over extended periods of time by increasing throughput capacity, while the Print Head Parking Station cleans the print heads after every plot, preventing clogging if the plotter is idle for extended periods. 
 
In addition to its durability and versatility, the MP Series represents the fastest plotter Gerber has ever offered, printing up to 180 square meters per hour at 300 dpi resolution. Its sleek design and 40db noise level make it ideal for office environments as well as production floors.
