Fabric cutting for car seats and interiors

Lectra’s fabric-cutting solutions contribute to achieving operational excellence.


ENSURING RAPID, RELIABLE DELIVERY OF CUT PARTS FOR CAR SEATS AND INTERIORS

Cars are not purely functional: they are more status symbols than ever before. Car buyers want customized interiors that reflect their individuality. To remain competitive, automakers are offering them greater choice in colors, styles and models. Managing this unprecedented level of complexity requires implementation of flexible, efficient manufacuring processes. Lectra’s fabric-cutting machines for car seats and interiors contribute to achieving operational excellence.

OPTIMIZING PROCESS EFFICIENCY BY AUTOMATING TASKS

Spreading is a key operation in the production process: final product quality and efficient use of fabric depend on its accuracy and efficiency. With tension-free spreading and high-volume capacity, Lectra’s Brio spreading solution provides the optimum balance between productivity and quality. A barcode system verifies fabric rolls to avoid the costly impact of spreading the incorrect fabric. The spread is then transferred to the cutting surface via conveyor table, thus maintaining perfect fabric alignment throughout the process.

ELIMINATING ERRORS AND WASTE

Greater production complexity makes a flexible, meticulous cutting solution essential for success. Vector integrates anti-error devices and monitoring systems for fast, accurate cutting. Cutting quality in multi-ply spreads is constant from top to bottom thanks to Lectra’s fabric cutting machine's unique dynamic vacuum pressure feature. At the end of each session, the control panels display key metrics to evaluate system performance and compare productivity with set objectives.
