The New Gerber M Turbo Router Unveiled at Trade Shows
Gerber Scientific Products, a worldwide leader in sign-making and specialty graphics systems headquartered in
South Windsor, CT, unveiled their new M Turbo high-powered cutter/router at the sign industry’s recent trade
shows in Chicago and New Orleans.
The M Turbo is a new and more powerful version of the reliable M 3000 cutting system, part of Gerber’s M
Series of flatbed finishing tables. The M Turbo has the same proven features as the rest of the M Series
machines, but offers a stronger, faster one kilowatt router. Visitors to the Gerber booth at the recent PRINT
09 Chicago show and the 2009 SGIA Expo in New Orleans were surprised by the new capabilities offered with
the new M Turbo. Gerber senior strategic accounts manager, Steve Albert notes, "We are very pleased with the
response the new Gerber M Turbo received at the shows. Graphic industry veterans know what a great asset
the higher-powered one kilowatt router can be for their business, since it allows them to perform a wider variety
of jobs and perform them faster, especially the ability to rout metal."
Another attractive feature of the M Turbo is its reasonably priced turnkey system. Albert says, "Show attendees
were pleased to learn the M Turbo is priced lower than comparable systems. The attractive price of the M
Turbo includes everything needed to get started. Instead of pricing the way competitors do, advertising a
base price that includes only the table and then up-selling the customer for all the other elements they need,
Gerber gives one price point for the entire, ready-to-use system."
The Gerber M Turbo’s turnkey system includes the cutting table, modular cutting head, M Vision optical
registration system for print-to cut applications, OMEGA software, a PC, reciprocating and tangential knife
tools, the 1 kw electric router tool, a starter kit of knife blades and router bits and even a one year comprehensive
warranty. It’s the perfect system for any business in the industry who wants a powerful router at a great price.
