To demonstrate how Gerber is empowering Industry 4.0 tenets, the company will showcase two fully-integrated workflows at the show.

Their mass customisation workflow includes a collaboration with Kornit Digital and Henderson Sewing Machine Company to demonstrate a complete on-demand micro-factory with 3D simulation, vision-aided cutting, direct-to-textile digital printing and robotics for transportation and sewing.

The concept highlights how data management, connected systems and automation can enable purchase activated production, redefining the concept of just-in-time manufacturing.

“The benefits of on-demand manufacturing are countless,” said Mohit Uberoi, CEO Gerber Technology. “We are investing in new technology and plan to continue pushing the boundaries of innovation to help our customers embrace digitalization, compete and win.”

Big data, cloud computing, Internet of Things, or Industry 4.0, are the words that have been used to describe data integration and finding ways to effectively streamline operations to address an ever increasing on-demand world.

Gerber has been supporting solutions with cloud connected design and cut room technology for more than 10 years. © Gerber Technology“The simple fact is, no matter what buzzword you use, Gerber has been the first to actively support our customers in their pursuit of Industry 4.0 and the proof is in the actual working micro-factory we are displaying on the show floor with our partners,” said Scott Schinlever, President and COO, Automation Solutions at Gerber Technology.

The wide variety in the textiles, fashion and apparel industries means that different supply chains demand different approaches, the company reports. Some require mass production with speed and efficiency in high volume, while others demand small batch or short run production to increase speed and optimize inventory. Gerber has been supporting these variants with cloud connected design and cut room technology for more than 10 years.

“Our customers are leading the way, capitalizing on the benefits of our cloud-based digital solutions,” said Karsten Newbury, senior vice president, Software Solutions at Gerber Technology. “With our industry leading AccuMark Platform of 2D and 3D applications, data is passed seamlessly to our smart machine cut room solutions, all supported by GERBERconnect. We are enabling incredible agility in our customers’ processes, which is critical to winning in today’s on-demand economy.”
