Gerber Technology joins its agent in Canada, Rubenstein Bros. Co. Inc., at the National Apparel Technology Show (NATS), showcasing its complete range of hardware and software solutions designed to automate and significantly improve the efficiency of information management, product design and development, pre-production, and production processes in the apparel industry. The following products will be featured: WebPDM 5.0. This recently introduced version of the leading integrated web-based product development management software will help apparel companies and retailers facilitate communication and accelerate the coordination of product development tasks by connecting design, engineering, costing, and manufacturing information through a centralized database of product-related information. As a key tool supporting concurrent product development, WebPDM 5.0 provides a unified, single version view of specifications and product information, and a consistent means of accessing that information in “real-time” via a fully functional Internet-browser client that allows internal and external partners to collaborate remotely AccuMark 8.1. This software is the standard for pattern design, grading and marker making. In its latest version, AccuMark 8.1 contains the most comprehensive set of pattern development tools in the industry, along with many other features to meet the fast-changing needs of today's apparel manufacturers, including more powerful notch positioning controls; accelerated background batch processing; and Microsoft® SQL database compatibility for large enterprise users.

The GTxL cutting system will be highlighted, which is ideal for cutting small lot orders at low- and medium-ply heights. Consistently accurate cutting promotes better material utilization and reduces the amount of re-cuts necessary. Lower power consumption, longer lasting consumables and less idle time increase the value of GTxL. Increased throughput at less cost, means higher profits and faster return on investment.

Gerber’s automated material spreading solutions offer the unique features of the cradle feed system, and ensure tension-free spreading of even the most difficult fabrics. The simplicity of the system ensures easy and fast operator training and high reliability.
