Innovative Solutions for Composites & Technical Textiles
Working with complex materials is easier when you have the right technology and support. Gerber experts have the know-how to help you fully integrate and optimize your supply chain from concept through production, ensuring safety regulations are being met through precise and accurate processes.
With most composite and technical textile manufacturers utilizing a variety of materials and sizes in their production, it’s important you have a flexible and versatile solution that can handle it all. With several tool heads and advanced vision systems, the Gerber MCT Cutter and the GERBERcutter® Z1 industrial fabric cutting machines offer industry-leading versatility that can cut a multitude of materials with absolute precision and accuracy.
Seamless data integration from CAD to the cut room.
Be agile and flexible with a fully integrated solution from design to the cut room. Accurately create patterns for production based on your product’s unique characteristics, improve cut planning, and optimize the cutting process with next-generation CAD and cut planning software that seamlessly passes data from the design to the cut room.
Our powerful software provides a simple solution to the most common problems in the composite and technical textile industries. Even when working with the most difficult materials, such as fiberglass, dry and prepreg carbon fiber, canvas, vinyl, nylon, Cordura® and more, our software solutions make it easy to identify cut parts and automate the nesting process, resulting in more accurate cut parts and improved material utilization. By leveraging our cutting edge solutions, you’ll have the highest quality, perfectly finished products.
Family-owned boatyard, Groupe Beneteau, needed to improve their workflow, uptime and throughput in order to remain a major player in Europe’s competitive boating industry. With Gerber’s solutions, Groupe Beneteau is able to easily handle high volume, customized cutting.

The Consulting Services team is able to provide advice on best practices and training to help you leverage the latest technology for a fast, efficient and sustainable process.
“Firefly is working on the largest liquid-fueled, monocoque composite rocket that's ever been built. We are always looking to utilize the most efficient manufacturing techniques to be successful. Technicians need to be more focused on the next part to lay up, rather than complex software interfaces. Our Virtek system allows for highly efficient part layup and complex geometries layup with fewer errors. Virtek is a committed partner in helping Firefly get to 1st flight!”
“As we continue to increase toward 100,000 units per day to protect our front line nurses, doctors, caregivers, and first responders, Gerber will be central to our efforts. I have never felt more blessed by digital technology, a machine, and a company that works.”
“The time savings have been remarkable, our technicians in the paint booth can now layout an aircraft in four hours with two technicians when it used to take 2-3 shifts when working with Mylar templates. Also, the amount of rework has almost been eliminated.”
