Gerber Technology is revolutionising flexible materials processing industry with launch of end-to-end solution for mass production, which will be unveiled at their annual technology conference, ideation, on November 4-6. The connected platform will feature Atria digital cutting solution and October 2020 release of AccuMark 2D and 3D, AccuNest and AccuPlan. 
 
With decades of industry experience, a rich history of innovation and feedback from its global customer base, Gerber developed a next-generation, digital mass production solution that will offer the best throughput, quality and price per piece in the market.
 
The Atria digital cutting room leverages Industry 4.0 and IoT to seamlessly integrate with Gerber’s pattern design, cut planning and nesting solutions, which connects the entire mass production process from CAD to the cut room. Gerber’s latest product releases deliver what manufacturers need to succeed in the post-Covid world by integrating data management, improving efficiencies, reducing material waste, optimising nesting and cutting production costs.
 
“We designed the Atria to be the most intelligent, integrated, and high-performance cutter the mass production market has ever seen,” Lenny Marano, chief commercial officer at Gerber Technology, said in a press release. “The new normal Covid era is a challenge for many manufacturers and requires them to be agile and innovative. The Atria is backed by Gerber’s end-to-end solution that will allow companies to easily adapt and respond to consumer demands and market challenges.”
 
The Atria digital cutting room builds on the innovative spirit of Joseph Gerber, the company’s founder and the pioneer behind the first automated cutting solution. As the industry’s smartest machine to date, the Atria promises to transform mass production by improving overall throughput by 50 per cent, reducing consumable usage by over 30 per cent and improving material yield by 5 per cent with zero buffer cutting in many applications at full speed. The intuitive solution will be a gamechanger for the workwear, denim, furniture, transportation and personal protective equipment (PPE) markets as it utilises powerful algorithms to eliminate errors, reduces costs and ensure data integrity at every point in the process.
 
The Atria has already received high praise from early adopters who have been testing and leveraging the advanced cutting room solutions for several months. GDI Grupo Diamante Internacional, manufacturer of professional uniforms, emphasised the Atria’s ability to cut even the toughest materials. The company has been able to cut 30 per cent more material since implementing the Atria into their workflow.
 
Apparel manufacturer, Lesato, has also seen a major improvement in cut quality. The Atria has allowed them to significantly increase their ply height while cutting faster and with absolute precision.  
 
“Fashion and transportation industries were two of the industry segments most impacted by Covid-19, which meant manufacturers in these industries had to quickly adapt their processes, accelerate e-commerce and look for new ways to connect with customers and maintain a competitive edge,” Ron Ellis, director of hardware product management at Gerber Technology, said. “The Atria’s state-of-the-art control technology and intelligent sensors enable versatility and make it the perfect solution for a variety of markets including apparel, transportation and furniture”
