Continuing to support the alleviation of global shortage of medical and consumer personal protective equipment (PPE), Gerber Technology is now empowering manufacturers to accelerate PPE production by offering a PPE Retooling Package.
The package includes an end-to-end suite of software and a specially configured PPE Edition Gerber Paragon cutter with optimized cutting parameters that allow manufacturers to produce up to 150,000 medical gowns and 6 million non-medical masks per week.
The package also includes PPE patterns, tech packs, and a regulatory consulting package for rapid conversion of conventional sewn goods production to PPE.
Gerber’s customer service
Since PPE materials are technical and complicated to work with, and often require several materials to be layered together to meet regulations and compliance, Gerber wants to ensure the customers have everything they need to make their transition to PPE production as smooth and fast as possible.
The Gerber PPE Retooling Package will help manufacturers seamlessly convert their supply chain allowing them to quickly, efficiently, and sustainably manufacture quality PPE.
It will in fact simplify the transition through a pre-packaged set of options, including vacuum regulation and cutting parameters, essential spare parts, 2D/3D CAD and PLM software to ensure accuracy and efficiency, and support from Gerber’s knowledgeable experts.
By leveraging the Gerber consulting package, retooling the production can take less than one week and results in less wasted material than “learning by doing”.
Earlier this year, Gerber created the PPE Task Force and Manufacturer Matchmaking Program which is helping manufacturers produce 150+ million masks and several million gowns per week, saving hundreds of millions of lives and securing countless jobs around the world. The Gerber PPE Retooling Package will help further increase manufacturing capacity.
