Gerber Technology unveils new precision spreading system

Gerber Technology announces the availability of its newest precision spreading system, the GERBERspreader 250s, which accommodates material rolls weighing up to 250 kgs. (550 lbs.) and spreads at speeds up to 100 meters per minute without tension. In addition, precision selvage and end alignment technology maximizes material utilization.

Ron Ellis, product manager for Gerber Technology, said, "This addition to our GERBERspreader line enables apparel manufacturers cutting denim, corduroy or knits to spread from very heavy rolls. It also enables makers of automotive interiors and transport seating to spread foam laminate materials from very bulky rolls using an extra-large cradle that can accommodate rolls up to 120 cm. (47 in.) in diameter."

The GERBERspreader 250s is available in multiple widths. It maximizes material utilization using adjustable infrared photocells that ensure accurate selvage alignment and precision end alignment technology that eliminates material end loss. Using built-in intelligence, the system also reports the amount of material used from a roll and the amount lost to defects or flaws.

The GERBERspreader 250s effectively addresses worker safety and ergonomics issues in several ways. The spreader's cradle feed system is equipped with an electric cradle tilt that enables fast and easy loading/unloading and threading/rewinding of material rolls. An optional loading system lifts heavy fabric rolls from the floor to the spreader cradle and vice versa making it easy and safe to load and unload rolls. In addition, sensors located on both sides of the GERBERspreader immediately halt the system when an obstacle is in its path.

Ellis noted, "Throughout our 45-year history, customers have come to rely on Gerber to provide a total cutting room solution that includes spreading tables, advanced spreading systems and computer-controlled cutting systems. This newest spreading system is the ideal addition to our suite of solutions because it is not only fast, precise and ergonomically-sound, it also delivers significantly improved material utilization."
