Gerber Technology has introduced a new tool kit designed specifically for packaging and finishing applications at SGIA.
Gerber Technology announced the debut of a new tool kit designed specifically for packaging and finishing applications at SGIA.
This is in conjunction with their acquisition of MCT Digital announced on Oct. 1, 2018. The combination of these companies unites the engineering expertise and innovation of two leading players in the sign and graphics and packaging industries.
This year represents Gerber’s 35th year participating in SGIA and it will celebrate this achievement with demonstrations of two Gerber MCT Cutters with TigerVision software each showing the systems versatility in the sign and graphics and packaging markets.
One system will showcase wide-format, high-speed laser cutting and the other will show its mechanical toolsets including a new line of packaging tools including a 5Kw router, 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.
Gerber Technology automation solutions president and COO Scott Schinlever said: “This new tool kit expands the versatility of the Gerber MCT Cutter.
“It’s an ideal solution for our packaging customers especially those with short run or sample run production needs.”
The Gerber MCT Cutter will be on display at the SGIA show Oct. 18–20 at booth #417 in the Las Vegas Convention Center.
MCT is an integrated solutions provider of hardware and software finishing solutions for the sign and graphics and packaging markets. Located in New Berlin, Wisconsin, MCT and its leadership team have been innovating in the sign and graphics and packaging segments for over 30 years.
In 1999, through his company Mikkelsen Graphic Engineering (MGE), Steen Mikkelsen launched i-cut vision for digital die cutting and in 2002, launched a version for print-to-cut workflows. In 2007, MGE was sold to Danaher’s Esko division.
In 2011, Steen’s son Nik founded MCT and launched the CutGuru website for parts and consumables for finishing products. In 2016, they launched their first cutting system and launched their current high-performance cutting system along with their TigerVision print-to-cut software, creating a seamless customer experience.
