Key Features

  • When you determine the optimum settings for your specific materials, save them to re-use time after time.
  • Define cutting parameters such as tool pressure, vacuum levels and cutting speed on the cutter’s portable workstation and easily adjust them using the touch screen directly at the cutter.
  • With electronic pressure regulation, users are able to monitor and electronically regulate the pressure of the knife to optimize the accuracy of cut parts.

Inkjet-Printed Part Identification Systems

  • Enable accurate identification of cut parts and composite plies by printing alphanumeric text and barcodes on a variety of materials.
  • Eliminate workflow bottlenecks caused by traditional pen-plotted part annotation and maximize the productivity of your GERBERcutter Z1.

ContourVision™ Scan-To-Cut System

  • Enables manufacturers to cut directly from custom printed textile rolls by scanning and automatically generating cut files.

Part Identification and Re-Cutting Station

  • Enables the operator to identify cut parts quickly, streamlining the kitting and bundling process.
  • Users can also select parts that require re-cutting, automatically re-nest them and quickly re-cut them.

AutoMatch Pattern Matching System

  • Automatically aligns patterns across cut parts on striped, plaid, and 5-star fabrics.
  • Uses state-of-the-art vision technology and advanced algorithms to make adjustments to bows, skews, and repeat variations automatically, radically improving throughput up to 75%.


  • Analyze system throughput, material yield, processing times, individual job statistics and more.
  • Find opportunities to make cutter operators more efficient and to optimize your cutting process.
  • Job queue enables simultaneous loading of all jobs to be cut during an entire shift or day’s work.
  • Wizards automate repetitive processes and accelerate preparation of the cut job.
  • Equipped with an intelligent variable vacuum regulator.
  • Input optimum vacuum levels to cut and convey your materials. The system regulates vacuum levels, minimizing vacuum when the cutter is idle to conserve electricity.
  • Choose to cut materials either in sections or continuously to maximize your workflow and your productivity.
  • Available in 3 sizes, 1.8, 2.54 and 3.4 meters, to excel in producing a wide range of high-quality output.
  • The cutting head accommodates three tools at one time (wheel cutter, drag blade, notch and punch tools) to minimize tool changes and a pen for annotation. Quickly set the cutting origin using the system’s laser pointer.
