Gerber Technology, in collaboration with Kornit Digital and Henderson Sewing Machine, will highlight how digitalisation can make purchase-activated manufacturing and mass customisation a reality at Texprocess Americas, co-produced by SPESA, which takes place from 22-24 May in Atlanta, GA.

“Attendees can experience a full end-to-end, on-demand micro-factory exhibit that demonstrates how – in today’s “see now, buy now” on demand world – manufacturers can digitise their process and increase their overall efficiency, while also reducing their inventory without impacting customer satisfaction or quality,” the company explains.

This digital workflow process will include Gerber Technology's AccuMark and AccuMark 3D for product design. The demonstration will show how design is optimised by leveraging custom graphics and 3D simulation, then converting patterns into a marker file that will be prepared and sent to a digital printer.

Kornit Digital’s Allegro Printer will also be on display. In a single step, the Allegro will digitally print designs directly to textile with its patented Fixation on the Fly (FOF) inline pre-treatment process. This waterless solution leaves a low eco-footprint by eliminating steps such as pre-treatment, washing, and steaming. Kornit will be showing new Neon inks that enable brighter colours and extended gamut, opening new market segments to increase system utilization.

Another key exhibit is Gerber’s Z1 single-ply cutter with ContourVision. The Z1 performs automated vision-aided cutting. An automated scan-to-cut system processes rolls of custom printed textiles by automatically generating cut files to drive the process. The Z1 is enabled with GERBERconnect, which allows data to be transferred to the Cloud and service professionals to diagnose your cutter in real time ensuring maximum production efficiency.

Finally, Omron Robot, integrated by Henderson Sewing Machine, will be presented. An autonomous mobile robot will collect bundled cut parts and transport them from the design-print-cut area to a robotic sewing station across the aisle at the Henderson Sewing Designed Gantry Robotic Sewing Station.

According to Gerber, the company’s goal is to create an unparalleled level of support for its customers. “We are enabling the industry to be proactive and move quickly in adopting their digital transformation,” said Mohit Uberoi, CEO of Gerber Technology. “Our team is ready to help facilitate the process – empowering our customers to turn their data into speed.”

Gerber Technology delivers industry-leading software and automation solutions that help apparel and industrial customers improve their manufacturing and design processes and more effectively manage and connect the supply chain, from product development and production to retail and the end customer.

Gerber’s Digital Solutions include the newest releases of YuniquePLM product lifecycle management software, as well as AccuMark, the industry-leading pattern design, grading, marker making and production planning software, AccuMark 3D and AccuPlan.

The Digital Solutions architecture uses common file structures. Data can easily be passed to the cut room where smart machines, like the GERBERspreader XLs Series and the Gerber Paragon line of multi-ply GERBERcutters, can process the order with a simple barcode scan.
