NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, September 27, 2019 – OnPoint Manufacturing, Inc., an innovative leader in on-demand personalized apparel manufacturing, announced today the arrival and installation of Gerber Technology’s new GERBERcutter® Z1 cutter and the AccuMark® suite of products at OnPoint’s headquarters in Florence, AL.
The software and Industry 4.0 cutter installation is the next phase of a larger strategic partnership between OnPoint and Gerber Technology that was first announced in late 2018 when Gerber launched its FashionTech Platform 1.0. The cutter, along with Gerber’s software suite, is the next step forward in moving toward optimization of end-to-end, on-demand manufacturing.
“We are setting up for a total inline system where we can go from direct-to-print to direct-to-manufacturing,” said J. Kirby Best, CEO of OnPoint Manufacturing. “While we are still determining a final digital press solution, using Gerber’s software suite and automated cutting systems like the Z1 moves us closer to our end goal. Each system we implement makes our manufacturing process more efficient and helps our customers get from concept to production more quickly.”
