There was strong interest when the global technology partner introduced the innovative cut ticket option — implementing a fully integrated solution from AccuMark® pattern design and AccuNest™ optimized markers to material spreading right through to automated cutting. Today, the stringent and fully controllable processing of orders is as follows:
- Cut plans are developed in AccuMark.
- Followed by marker making and optimizing via AccuNest.
- AccuMark generates a printed cut ticket with barcode per order.
- Scanning of the cut ticket barcode to retrieve spread details.
- Gerber’s Label ID applies piece and cut ticket label to the spread – or to different layers within the multi-color spread.
- Gerber Paragon® cutter software to provide easy access right at the screen to all relevant job details and metrics.
We grew up with Gerber products and value the industry leading, process-oriented consulting and reliable service provided by the Gerber team on site here in Portugal.
