Gerber Scientific Inc, a worldwide leader in integrated automation solutions, announced that following the successful design validation testing of its revolutionary Solara ion printer, it has shipped the first three production units to customers to begin manufacturing validation testing.

This is the final stage of testing before moving to volume production, expected to start in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009, which begins May 1, 2008.

Gerber Scientific Products, the Gerber unit which developed the Solara ion, will participate in the ISA show in Orlando, FL which takes place March 27-29, where it will display a production ion printer.

The Solara ion takes advantage of Gerber's patent pending Cold Fire Cure process and GerberCAT cationic ink to deliver breakthrough performance in UV inkjet printing.

The low power cure generates less heat, and combined with flexible ink technology allows printing on the widest array of both rigid and flexible substrates with exceptional adhesion at speeds faster than any wide format UV system on the market for under $150,000.

The true flat-bed construction allows precision printing quality otherwise available only with much more expensive printers.

"We are very pleased and excited about the technology we're bringing to this industry, with our ground-breaking Cold Fire Cure system," said Marc T. Giles, President and Chief Executive Officer of Gerber Scientific Inc.

"This represents a tremendous opportunity for Gerber Scientific to become a key player in this rapidly growing segment of the sign making and specialty graphics industry," added Giles.
