Industrial cutting machine

August 31, 2011

Integrated Textile Solutions (ITS) has recently purchased a new industrial cutting machine, the GERBERcutter Z7.

"This new machine will allow us to serve our current clients more efficiently and provide more options to win new clients," says David Thornhill, president & COO of ITS. "We're really excited about the possibilities this addition presents."

The new machine is capable of precisely cutting complex designs in almost any type and thickness of material including foams, technical textiles, Kevlar, vinyl, woven and nonwoven materials. In addition, complex software formulas control the knife movement, preventing deflection. This creates accurate cuts on each layer of material, top to bottom, and generates exact, defined circles, holes and notches.

Stability of material is also essential for quality cutting. The GERBERcutter Z7 combines advanced software with digitally controlled variable vacuum regulation and other features that create maximum material stability during the entire cutting process.

In addition to quality, the new equipment purchase will increase productivity for both ITS and their clients. Cut Works Cut Path Optimizer is part of the new system and allows the machine to lay out a pattern that minimizes waste by getting the most use out of each piece of material. The automatic knife sharpening and cleaning features increases cut quality and lowers preventative-maintenance downtime. The knife cooler/cleaner increases the blade operating life and the Quick Change Drill allows operators to change bits quickly (and without tools).

All of this along with many other aspects of the GERBERcutter Z7 will allow ITS to provide a superior final product on a quick turnaround with the greatest efficiency, productivity, and value possible, Thornhill says.
