Lectra optimizes design and cutting for car seats and interiors

OPTIMIZING CAR SEAT COVER AND TRIM MANUFACTURING

  • Providing customers with more diverse car interior design requires agility and quick turnaround time. To be successful, suppliers need to eliminate inefficiencies in their processes.

     

  • Lectra’s consultative approach and comprehensive solutions, from 3D design to automated cutting, help automotive suppliers react quickly to customer needs, improve production efficiency and reduce costs without sacrificing quality.

  • SECURING MARGINS WITH DESIGN-TO-COST PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

    A design-to-cost approach allows suppliers to respond to requests for quotations with competitive yet profitable prices. Combined with virtual design and development solutions, the need for numerous physical prototypes is eliminated thus reducing lead times and costs. With Lectra’s 3D/2D solutions, companies can quickly respond to changing trends with innovative and cost-effective products.

  • ACHIEVING PEAK PERFORMANCE WITH AN ERROR-FREE FABRIC CUTTING ROOM

    Eliminating the risk of even minor technical mishaps or human errors results in major time and material savings. Optimizing the entire fabric cutting process with Lectra’s lean-compliant solutions helps automotive suppliers manage costs, quality and delivery times with ease. Embedded anti-error systems also reduce the risk of costly recuts and production stops.

  • For those who know there is always a better way

    Lectra’s latest Vector solution gives suppliers the ability to effectively respond to volume fluctuations and the growing variety of models, quickly and accurately cutting an array of pieces in a variety of even more complex shapes.

  • INCREASING MATERIAL SAVINGS IN CAR LEATHER UPHOLSTERY CUTTING

    The rising cost of raw leather means streamlining material use is a must. Integrating automation into production processes for car leather upholstery ensures efficient material use, smooth production flow and optimal quality. Designed with the principle of lean manufacturing in mind, Lectra’s leather-cutting solutions offer up to 10% material savings.

  • For those who look beyond the cut

    Streamlined workflow, greater production data transparency, and optimized leather use with reliable results and consistent quality are just some of the advantages of automated cutting solutions compared to traditional die presses.
