Will Collaborate on Software and Automation Solutions
TOLLAND, Conn., USA, March 15, 2016 – Gerber Technology, the world leader in integrated software and automation solutions for the apparel and industrial markets, has entered into a creative partnership with fashion designer Danit Peleg.
“We are thrilled to announce the partnership of Danit Peleg and Gerber Technology,” said Karsten Newbury, Gerber’s vice president and general manager, Software Solutions. “Danit’s work is a testament to innovation and vision. We are excited about the journeys we’ll be able to take together.”
Peleg will work with Gerber on the development of design technology that accelerates product development and quality, including the continued evolution of Gerber’s YuniquePLM™ and AccuMark® products. “Our product development is focused on a full range of integrated solutions that help to speed time to market, through improvements to collaboration, communication, quality and accuracy all along the supply chain,” Newbury said.
At the same time, Peleg will build her own line of apparel products, with Gerber as her lead technology partner. Israel-based Peleg created a 3D-printed, five-piece fashion collection as part of her graduate portfolio for her fashion design degree at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design. The collection was created using a wide range of CAD and printing systems, including Blender and AccuMark 3D visualization, animation and simulation, and was presented at Gerber’s ideation2015 last October.
“Gerber Technology’s products such as AccuMark have helped me tremendously with the process of making my 3D printed pieces,” said Peleg. “Gerber’s commitment to develop products for fashion designers who are working in this nascent technology is remarkable. I am very excited to have partnered with Gerber so we can continue innovating together.”
“Danit represents an important voice of independent fashion designers who are leveraging new technologies, such as 3D printing. She will help guide Gerber to address this emerging market’s needs,” said Newbury. “We look forward to having her input.”
