Gerber Technology has given us many assignments over the years to create the shapes of their innovative machines, which are primarily products for cutting and handling cloth, hide and film. In addition we created their corporate look, in color and form, for most of the products that the company sells worldwide to further their brand. The pioneering multi-ply fabric cutter shown above is 16 feet long, 7 feet wide and 6 feet tall. People not only run the machine, but climb all over it in its operation. We were asked to design a skin for the machine that would be strong enough to survive in this environment as well as express the product’s state-of-the-art technology.
The picture below is the Z1 next generation automated cutting system and the optimal solution for single and low ply cutting of challenging composite materials for aerospace applications.
