Scan and cut custom printed textiles with borders.
Reduce Labor & Material Cost
With ContourVision™ automated scan-to-cut system, manufacturers can scan custom printed textiles, automatically generate cut files and cut directly from textile rolls.
The ContourVision system is an option on GERBERcutter® Z1 conveyorized cutting systems. It is comprised of intelligent software, a color scanner and a LED (light-emitting diode) bar. The scanning/cutting surface is available in 1.8 meter (6 ft.) or 2.54 meter (8.3 ft.) widths and lengths of either 1.8 meters (6 ft.) or 3 meters (10 ft.).
The scanner captures an image of the custom-printed pattern/image and sends it directly to the ContourVision software. Image processing is extremely fast and cutting begins immediately with no need to create time-consuming cut files.
Intelligent Material Savings.
The ContourVision system is highly accurate so material is never wasted. It calibrates automatically to compensate for misaligned patterns and bow and skew in the material. The user can easily add negative or positive offsets to the detected border. The software also detects notches automatically. For example, it will automatically detect a v-notch and will add the notch to the cut.
