Offers Increased Automation and Production Capabilities

"The High Capacity Pivex Punch provides expanded functionality to Taurus and Taurus II users," said Gerber Technology's Tom Gordon.

Gerber Technology announces a new accessory for its line of Taurus and Taurus II Leather Cutting Systems, the High Capacity Pivex Punch. Now, Taurus and Taurus II systems can cut and punch heavy leathers (up to 12 ounces) when utilizing Gerber’s patented Pivex reciprocating knife head with the new High Capacity Pivex Punch.

Designed with apparel and accessory manufacturers in mind, the High Capacity Pivex Punch is ideal for Taurus users who produce items that require precisely placed and consistently sized holes in heavier leather hides, such as belts, footwear, handbags, watchbands and jackets.

“The Taurus II Leather Cutting System represents a very strategic product line for Gerber, and we will continue to drive innovation for this segment of the market,” said Tom Gordon, director of Industrial Products, Gerber Technology. “The High Capacity Pivex Punch is just another way we’re helping Taurus and Taurus II users maximize their return on investment by providing expanded functionality to their production automation capabilities.”

High Capacity Pivex Punch Starter Kits are available in 2 size ranges: 2-4mm and 5-7mm. Each kit includes 2 punches of each size (2, 3 and 4mm for the small starter kit and 5, 6 and 7mm for the large starter kit), and all hardware required to operate two punches simultaneously. The kits can be installed by the customer in a matter of minutes.

The High Capacity Pivex Punch option can be installed on any Taurus XD/XM or Taurus II SLD/SLS with Pivex. Pivex upgrades are available for Taurus XD/XM and Taurus II SLD/SLS customers currently operating Taurus 4-tool systems seeking to gain the precision, throughput and yield of the Pivex reciprocating knife head in their production.
