          Gerber & Hardwire join hands to expand PPE production

          Gerber has partnered with Hardwire, a manufacturer of protective armour, to produce face shields for medical professionals and first responders fighting COVID-19. With Gerber’s agile and quick response, Hardwire is adding two new cutting machines and software to their existing multi-ply cutting systems, to produce tens of thousands of face shields per day.

          “Within 24 hours of our first discussion with the Hardwire team, we had launched the production of the new machines. We have a dedicated team organised to rapidly respond to requests to expand PPE production at existing PPE manufacturers as well as convert apparel and other manufacturers to PPE production with the technology, support and services they need,” Mohit Uberoi, CEO of Gerber said in a press release.

          “Without Gerber machines in our factory, there is no way we could have made multiple Face Shield PPE prototypes, fielded versions in the ICUs of two hospitals, optimised the design using comments from doctors and nurses, and scaled to more than 7,000 units per day in production in under a week. 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,” George Tunis, CEO of Hardwire said.

          In order to maximise production, Hardwire is relying on the Gerber experts to successfully install two new Gerber Paragon multi-ply cutting solutions with CutWorks and added CutWorks to its existing machines in just a matter of weeks. Gerber’s unmatched expertise and knowledgeable application specialists helped Hardwire optimise their workflow. Gerber’s partnership with Hardwire will be ongoing as the manufacturer continues to produce face shields for those that need them.

          Gerber has created a PPE task force to help companies increase their production or transition into producing PPE by sharing best practices, offering support, and providing resources such as pattern data, cut files, markers, and tech packs for masks, technical suits, gowns and caps as well as sign and graphics templates such as labels.

          For the last two decades, Hardwire has manufactured armour systems for military, law enforcement, municipalities, private business, consumers, and school systems. The Maryland-based manufacturer is known for solving some of the most challenging military and defence problems having developed, tested, and fielded armour to protect against a variety of threats, ranging from small arms to improvised explosive devices (IEDs) to underbody blast.
