Gerber launches latest version of AccuMark 8.5
Nov '11
Gerber Technology released AccuMark 8.5, its latest version of the leading pattern design, grading and marker making software to improve productivity, simplify workflows and generate more accurate material costs. The latest release offers a fresh, new interface and simplifies many day-to-day tasks including inputting customer orders and planning markers. It also offers improved integration with Gerber's YuniquePLM product lifecycle management software.

AccuMark 8.5 includes “Easy Plan” order planning functionality that enables users to specify customer order sizes and quantities by color and set maximum ply height and number of bundles. The system then plans the markers and generates the orders automatically to maximize material utilization.

With version 8.5's “Easy Marking” enhancements, users can now configure their work area to their liking using customized hot keys, color palettes and tool bars. And, because the system now supports fabric backgrounds, users can import fabric prints at actual scale, define repeats and use this information to match pattern pieces visually. The system also enables users to enter fabric weight to calculate material costs more accurately.

AccuMark 8.5 also contains expanded pattern design functionality that enables users to quickly create sleeves and create diamond or rhombus-shaped darts. The latest version also includes improved grading for pleats and darts and support for multiple turnback corners and folding of pleats and darts.

Mary McFadden, director of CAD product management said, “Once again, this latest version of AccuMark delivers improved integration with Gerber's YuniquePLM system to save users time by not having to re-enter similar information in two systems. No other company offers state-of-the-art pattern design, grading and marker making functionality and a powerful PLM system designed specifically for the retail and apparel market and integrates the two. Gerber is the only provider that delivers such rich functionality across the value chain.”
