Gerber Technology — a Tolland, Conn.-based supplier of integrated software and hardware automation
systems to the apparel and flexible materials industry, and a business unit of South Windsor,
Conn.-based Gerber Scientific Inc. — now offers its GERBERcutter® GTxL automated cutting system in
a wide version. The system is designed to cut materials up to 2.2 meters wide, and is suitable for
manufacturers of fashion knitwear, specialty technical textiles and furniture.
The Gerbercutter GTxL Wide is a low-ply conveyorized system with the ability to cut up to
2.5 centimeters of compressed material using Gerber’s reciprocating knife technology. It features a
powerful vacuum system with variable regulation to create material stability during the cutting
process, thereby enabling production of accurately cut parts while reducing energy consumption. It
also features a cutting head that can be fitted with up to two optional drills. Options include a
knife chiller to keep the blade cool during cutting, and a lateral travel kit that moves the cutter
among multiple spreading tables.
