Gerber Technology expands its MCT Digital Cutting System into European Market at FESPA 2019
Gerber Technology to showcase the Gerber MCT Cutter system at FESPA 2019. The system allows users to control target registration, cut file editing and machine production from one, integrated user interface.
As the need for on-demand manufacturing increases across an ever-widening array of substrates, producers in the sign & graphic and packaging industries need a system that offers speed and versatility to meet every request that comes in. To remain competitive, it is important for companies to offer more material options and quicker turnaround times without diminishing the quality of their product.
The Gerber MCT Cutter has numerous tools to complete the most challenging jobs for a wide range of substrates, while increasing productivity and delivering high-quality results. The innovative system allows users to control target registration, cut file editing and machine production from one, integrated user interface.
Six months after having acquired MCT Digital, Gerber is now expanding its MCT digital cutting system worldwide into the sign & graphics and packaging markets. The highly-integrated system of hardware and software has won numerous awards in the North American market.
Gerber’s Technology’s Scott Schinlever, President and CEO, Automation Solutions comments: “We are excited to bring such strong innovation in digital finishing to the European sign & graphics and packaging markets and are aiming to build on Gerber’s deep heritage of automated finishing and integrated production software”.
The Gerber MCT Cutter is equipped with an industry-leading 100w laser for textiles and acrylics, as well as 11 interchangeable tools and the industry’s most integrated production and vision-guided software, TigerVision™.
Jonathan Merendlender, the founder of Printed Ink (Huntingdon Valley, PA) has been using the cutter since October 2019 and says: “We went from doing everything by hand to having a giant digital worker who is very accurate and fast. Aside from the obvious benefits of custom shapes, 3D lettering, and fabrication, the CNC router drastically cut down on labour and increased capacity almost instantly.”
The Gerber MCT Cutter will be making its European debut at the Global Print Expo 2019 at the Messe Munich between the 14-17 May 2019. The Global Print Expo is Europe’s largest speciality print exhibition for screen and digital wide format print, textile printing and signage solutions. To see what’s now trending for the sign and graphics industry, visitors can get a live demo of Gerber’s new cutting solution at stand E20 in hall B5.
