The new tool kit is designed for packaging and finishing applications, and is in line with the Gerber Technology acquisition of MCT Digital announced on 1 October, 2018. The combination of these companies unites the engineering expertise and innovation of two leading players in the packaging and sign and graphics industries.
The took kit was debuted at SGIA where Gerber demonstrated two Gerber MCT Cutters with TigerVision software. One system showcased wide-format, high-speed laser cutting and the other showed its mechanical toolsets, including a new line of packaging tools such as a 5Kw router, 15.24cm (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 tool kit 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 short run or sample run production needs.’
