Digital Solutions and State-of-the-Art Cutting Systems

  • The GERBERcutter® Z1 cutting system, a single-ply cutting system fully configurable for composite applications, featuring a conveyorized operation to maintain the highest degree of cutting accuracy on any length material while maximizing throughput. The Z1 also includes a recently redesigned interface which provides an intuitive workflow that minimizes operator training and makes job processing quick and easy.
  • Features for composite applications include ingress protection to prevent particle contamination for critical components and the InfoJet™ part identification platform, which uses aerospace compliant ink to label individual parts.
  • Gerber’s CutWorks® design, nesting, and controller software which reduces processing times, improves cut quality, and optimizes cut paths to improve production efficiency.
  • ComposiNest®, a CutWorks module designed for composite applications. The module uses proprietary algorithms to enhance ply placement and nesting strategies, maximizing material utilization.
