The versatility of this machine provides our customers with an automated cutting solution that will transform their manufacturing process,” states Trip Todd, Gerber Technology’s Senior Product Manager, Single-Ply Cutters. “What makes this product unique is that we are able to take our advanced Pivex technology, which has been very successful within the leather industry, and find new applications that utilize this innovative cutting technology,” adds Todd.
“As a manufacturer in a competitive market it is important to achieve the highest quality possible, while keeping costs low,” states David Maxwell, Production Manager at REM, Europe’s leading designer and manufacturer of hair and beauty equipment and owners of a DCS2600. “Working with Gerber Technology to introduce the DCS2600 with Pivex, we were able to cut both leather cloth for hairdressing styling chairs and laminates for reception desks and styling units. With the DCS2600, we have managed to reduce waste, increase quality and increase efficiency.”
The DCS2600 easily integrates into any cutting room environment within the Composites and Technical Textile industries. The technology has been tested and approved to cut an array of materials including Carbon Fiber, Kevlar®, Plastic, Wood Veneer, Ballistic Nylon and Nomex® Mesh.
