Corrugated Folding Carton

Cutting system tool kit follows on from recent acquisition

Gerber Technology has launched a new tool kit designed specifically for packaging and finishing applications. This is in conjunction with its acquisition of MCT Digital. The combination of these companies unites the engineering expertise and innovation of two leading players in the sign and graphics and packaging industries.

At the SGIA Expo in Las Vegas in October, the companies demonstrated two Gerber MCT Cutters with TigerVision software each showing the systems versatility in the sign and graphics and packaging markets. One system showcased wide-format, high-speed laser cutting and the other demonstrated 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, folding carton, foam and triplewall 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.”
