Wide-format digital printer and cutting equipment/materials supplier CMYUK (Woodley, England) will serve as the UK and Ireland distributor for the MCT Laser Cutters from Gerber Technology (Tolland, CT). The agreement furthers CMYUK's position as a solutions provider for digitally printed textiles and finishing for these regions.
This arrival of the Gerber MCT Laser Cutter complements the full CMYUK digital cutting portfolio that services the sign, graphics, and soft signage markets.
"We are witnessing huge demand for soft furnishing, interior décor, and personalization within the digitally printed textile market," says Nick Reed, CMYUK's digital cutting specialist and ESKO Business Manager. "These need to be cut with a laser, which not only handles irregular shapes with ease, but also seals raw edges. Further down the line, prototyping, fast fashion, and highly customizable short-runs will be screaming out for this type of finishing."
The Gerber MCT Cutter is equipped with a high-power laser that delivers heat-sealed, non-fraying edges, and cuts accurately. The system offers contactless laser cutting to ensure no accidental lifting or moving of the fabrics while cutting.
By implementing a singular Gerber MCT Cutter, a company can offer a wider range of jobs without the need for multiple machines. The system offers 8–12X the throughput and productivity compared to manual cutting, while also reducing waste through close nesting of parts.
