Gerber Technology announces the availability of a wide model version of its industry-leading GERBERcutter GTxL. This system is designed to cut materials as wide as 2.2 meters (86 inches). It is ideal for manufacturers of fashion knitwear, specialty technical textiles and furniture where wide materials are often used.

Ron Ellis, product manager for Gerber Technology’s multi-ply cutting systems, said, “Over the past few years, the trend has been toward smaller, quick-turn orders. At the same time, manufacturers are using wider materials to maximize material utilization and to cut full-size parts that don’t require sewing.

“Based on feedback from thousands of GTxL owners over the years, we know the GTxL is the most reliable cutter on the market – ideal for smaller, quick turn orders. With the availability of a GTxL Wide model, Gerber customers can realize even greater cost savings and flexibility in the cutting room.”

The GERBERcutter GTxL Wide is a low-ply conveyorized system capable of cutting up to 2.5 cm. (1 inch) of compressed material. It includes variable vacuum regulation to enable optimal material stability during cutting, resulting in extremely accurately cut parts with less energy consumption.

The cutting head can be fitted with up to two optional drills – each accommodating bits up to 9.5 mm (3/8 in.) in diameter. An optional knife chiller keeps the blade cool during cutting which is critical when cutting fusible or heat-sensitive materials. The optional lateral travel kit moves the cutter among multiple spreading tables to optimize cutting throughput and efficiency.

For more than four decades, Gerber Technology has been the world leader in providing sophisticated hardware and software systems to automate and more effectively manage the product design and manufacturing process.
