The digital technology revolution

At the Texprocess 2017 we had the possibility for an exclusive interview with Peter Morrissey, Senior Vice-President at Gerber Technology.

Gerber Technology, headquartered in Tolland, Connecticut and with its base for the D-A-CH (principally German-speaking) region in Ismaning, close to Munich, presented some impressive and innovative CAD/CAM solutions at this year’s Texprocess/Techtextil. Trade visitors were particularly enthusiastic about the Accumark 2D and 3D cutting software and about the integration of Gerber CAD and PLM software – specifically Yunique PLM V7, which offers many new features including the new plug-in (incorporated into Design Suite) tailored to the way in which the creatives work.

“With the ability to transfer data easily through our Yunique PLM Design Suite plug-in,” commented Morrissey, “designers can now concentrate on designing.” The Design Suite plug-in, he said, was very easy to install, giving the customer direct access to new features through the Adobe store; Yunique PLM was a tailor-made fashion PLM system that allowed clients to carry out both the installation and automatic updating through the Adobe Add-ons marketplace.

“We want to assist our customers in achieving maximum efficiency,” said Morrissey, and the latest innovation, the Design Suite plug-in, was ideally suited to this. Designers can, for example, create new colour palettes and access existing palettes easily with the Color plug-in; with the Image plug-in they can access all of the Adobe Illustrator digital masters as well as sketches, graphics and CAD in combination with Yunique PLM. In addition, the Style plug-in module allows innovative styles to be created on Adobe Illustrator from sketches, with all modifications and updates immediately available in Yunique PLM.
