Gerber Unveils Tool Kit for MCT Cutter to Improve Efficiency in Packaging, Finishing Apps
TOLLAND, CT, USA, Oct 19, 2018 - Gerber Technology announced the debut of a new toolkit designed specifically for packaging and finishing applications at SGIA. This is in conjunction with their acquisition of MCT Digital announced on Oct. 1, 2018. The combination of these companies unites the engineering expertise and innovation of two leading players in the sign and graphics and packaging industries.
This year represents Gerber’s 35th year participating in SGIA and it will celebrate this achievement with demonstrations of two Gerber MCT Cutters with TigerVision software each showing the system’s versatility in the sign and graphics and packaging markets. One system will showcase wide-format, high-speed laser cutting and the other will show its mechanical toolsets including a new line of packaging tools including a 5Kw router, 6-inch creasing wheel, and heavy-duty oscillating knife. These tools are designed to address corrugated triple and folded carton, foam, and triple wall packaging materials.
“This new toolkit expands the versatility of the Gerber MCT Cutter,” said Scott Schinlever, president and chief operating officer, Automation Solutions for Gerber Technology. “It’s an ideal solution for our packaging customers especially those with the short run or sample run production needs.”
The Gerber MCT Cutter will be on display at the SGIA show Oct. 18-20 at booth #417 in the Las Vegas Convention Center.
