Gerber Technology to Showcase Digital Solutions and Debut Paragon® HX Cutter at CISMA 2015
Exhibition in Shanghai Sept. 23-26
Gerber Technology, the world leader in integrated software and automation solutions for the apparel and industrial markets, will introduce a new cutting system and feature its latest digital technology at the 2015 China International Sewing Machinery and Accessories (CISMA) Show, Sept. 23-26 in Shanghai. The Gerber exhibit will be located in Hall E1, Stand A34 of the Shanghai New International Exhibition Centre.
Gerber’s new Paragon® HX cutting system features several enhancements for improved user experience and increased throughput, including cutting head modifications for reduced noise and a new dual drill system for improved speed and accuracy. The HX will also be available in an HX-A configuration designed specifically for the automotive industry, and as an HX-L designed for lingerie and other delicate applications. Productivity improvements to the system’s Cut-Ticketing Process, which connects data from the AccuMark® system through the spreader and to the cutter, will be demonstrated at the show.
Also featured at CISMA will be Gerber’s integrated digital solutions, which help address the key industry needs of improvements in material utilization, labor efficiency and cost, improved data management and shorter overall time to market. The digital solution includes Gerber’s industry leading YuniquePLM™ comprehensive product lifecycle management software and AccuMark 10 integrated pattern design, grading, marker making and production planning software.
Gerber will demonstrate both software applications and highlight its new AccuMark 3D visualization technology, an optional module for AccuMark 10. Gerber’s 3D technology is fully integrated within the AccuMark 10 software, making it easy to move from 2D to 3D. AccuMark 3D incorporates sophisticated 3D graphics and animation technology called Blender, which has been widely used in the animation, movie, video game and simulation industries. Its broad spectrum of modeling, texturing, lighting and simulation capabilities make it one of the most popular Open Source 3D graphics applications in the world.
With its advanced simulation capabilities, AccuMark 3D helps the pattern maker to know whether the pattern works in the design, and the designer is able to visualize fit and comfort while allowing for garment refinements – all without actually making the garment. AccuMark 3D can also export files that can be shared with Gerber’s YuniquePLM software to enhance collaboration, making it possible to reduce time and cost in design, sample making and merchandising.
CISMA is the largest professional sewing machinery show in the world, featuring pre-sewing, sewing and after-sewing equipment, CAD/CAM, spare parts and accessories which cover the entire garment production procedure. With a theme of “Intelligent Sewing Solutions,” the 2015 CISMA has developed into a multi-functional trade platform of product display, business communication, channel expansion, resource integration, product launch and international cooperation.
