Gerber launches AccuMark 8.5.1 software

Dec '12
Gerber Technology released AccuMark 8.5.1, its latest version of the industry-leading pattern design, grading and marker making software. Version 8.5.1 simplifies hard pattern digitizing, improves material utilization and strengthens integration with Gerber’s YuniquePLM product lifecycle management system. The release is also accompanied by a new version of Gerber’s AccuNest automated nesting software.

AccuMark 8.5.1 supports Gerber’s new AccuScan camera digitizer, a portable pattern input solution. Users simply affix their pattern pieces to a mat imprinted with specialized targets and photograph them using a high-quality, digital camera. The targets enable the AccuScan software to interpret the scale and perspective of the pattern images and accurately convert the images to digital piece data for use in the AccuMark system.

AccuNest 8.5.1 includes “Compact,” powerful new marker compaction functionality, included at no additional charge. Compact is able to see even the slightest opportunities to improve marker efficiency and does so with the push of a button. Mary McFadden, director of CAD product management, noted, “Users realize that saving even a few centimeters in a marker can reduce their material costs significantly when material is spread and cut in multiple plies.” Compact can be used to shorten existing markers or to compress markers made by AccuNest.

This newest release also delivers improved integration with the company’s YuniquePLM product lifecycle management system. For example, users of YuniquePLM are able to import data on material yields and points of measure from the AccuMark system and use them to generate costing and product tech packs. This information exchange eliminates redundant work and minimizes errors that often occur between the creative and development teams.

In addition, AccuMark 8.5.1 supports use of the Roll-Up digitizer, a thin, lightweight system manufactured by GTCO CalComp, which rolls up easily for storage or transport. The Roll-Up digitizer is an efficient yet economical solution for those who need to digitize patterns in multiple locations.

McFadden added, “With each release of AccuMark, we strive to deliver ways for users to improve productivity, maximize material utilization, accelerate products to market and ensure end product quality.”Existing Gerber customers with a software subscription can upgrade to the latest release of AccuMark and AccuNest free of charge.

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.
