Gerber Technology, which delivers industry-leading software for apparel and industrial customers, is set to launch the FashionTech Platform 1.0. The platform includes software, equipment, and consulting to set up a purchase-activated fashion model with a digitally integrated ecommerce and on-demand design to print, cut, and sew micro-factory operation.

The first FashionTech Platform 1.0 installation will be implemented in partnership with OnPoint Manufacturing in Florence, Alabama and PAAT in Nashville, Tennessee, Gerber said.

“Our eco-system, the expertise of our people and recent advances in our technology are enabling us to deliver value to our customers, helping them to achieve the countless benefits of a demand generated micro-factory. To effectively achieve this concept you need a strong knowledge base and products that can digitally integrate the design through production workflow with speed and efficiency,” Karsten Newbury, SVP and GM of Software at Gerber said.

FashionTech Platform 1.0 eliminates costly inventory and re-defines just-in-time manufacturing, so production adjusts as demands fluctuate – allowing products to be produced more efficiently and sold at full retail price without heavy discounting. OnPoint Manufacturing has expertise in digitising processes and on-demand work flows. Their current mass customisation manufacturing process supports millions of unique SKUs.

The FashionTech Platform 1.0 includes an ecommerce virtual try-on application developed by Avametric, and the complete set of Gerber’s digital solutions tools including the newest software releases of YuniquePLM, a cloud-based product lifecycle management software, and AccuMark, the industry-leading pattern design, grading, marker making, and production planning software as well as AccuMark 3D. Data will be transmitted directly to the micro-factory environment where the optimised marker files from AccuMark will drive a digital printer to print and continuously feed finished textiles to a GERBERcutter Z1 with CountourVision. A combination of robotic and lean loop sewing operations will be deployed depending upon apparel finishing requirements. (GK)
