Gerber launches upgrades on automated cutting systems
May '15
Gerber Technology, a world leader in integrated solutions for the apparel and industrial markets, has launched upgrades on two software technologies, Axis 2.1 controller software for the Gerber cutter Z1 automated cutting system and the CutWorks 9 design, nesting and cutting software.

The Z1 cutter is a prime solution for single-ply cutting in a wide range of applications including apparel, furniture, transportation, and other industrial fabrics. It now features Axis 2.1 controller software, allowing users to optimize workflow with an intuitive user interface that provides simple step-by-step guidance throughout the entire cutting process, greatly reducing operator errors and increasing throughput, Gerber informs in a press release.

The Axis 2.1 software also provides Z1 users the option to take advantage of several powerful new features, including a variety of new reporting capabilities and vacuum regulation.
Tom Gordon, Gerber director of industrial products said, “The new user interface in the Z1 cutter is much simpler and user-friendly. Users now have this holistic, well-rounded experience with a quick and easy learning curve.”

Gordon said, “In addition, the Z1’s intelligent variable vacuum regulator is a game changer for our customers concerned with energy consumption. The new system regulates the vacuum according to the task at hand – even minimizing vacuum and power consumption when the cutter is idle.”

In conjunction with the release of Axis 2.1, Gerber’s new CutWorks 9 software is now available. CutWorks 9 features enhanced AccuMark, Gerber’s pattern design, grading, marker making, and production planning software, integration featuring colour coded kit assignments and comes standard with all Gerber single-ply cutters including the Z1, Taurus II, DCS 1500, and DSC 2500.
