All-new Furniture On Demand enables unstoppable business momentum

Designed to overcome the challenges of unitary and small-series production, Furniture On Demand puts sustainability and profitability within reach by connecting every component of the cutting room.

Furniture makers worldwide continue to face the multi-pronged challenges of an unpredictable business environment, including the rising cost of raw materials and energy, supply chain issues and geopolitical tensions.

Further compounding matters, the pull-mode production model prevalent in the upholstered furniture industry significantly increases production complexity.

To help furniture makers simplify cutting preparation and reduce key person dependency, Lectra is launching an all-new version of Furniture On Demand.

Industry 4.0 connectivity and data-driven workflow powered by new digital platform Valia

Launched in 2018, Furniture On Demand is more relevant than ever.

The solution lets manufacturers satisfy the highest customer expectations by harnessing the power of production data to quickly meet changing requirements, boost profitability and generate more value.

Powered by the new Valia digital platform, Furniture On Demand enables manufacturers to overcome pull-mode manufacturing complexity with Industry 4.0 technologies that connect cutting room components and drive automated workflow with data analytics while supporting sustainable productivity and skills development to future-proof the workforce.


New VectorFurniture low-ply range expands the possibilities of cutting room performance

Still compatible with connected single-ply cutting solution Virga for plain and patterned fabrics, the all-new Furniture On Demand further expands the possibilities of cutting room performance through interoperability with the Vector range of fabric-cutting equipment.

The new VectorFurniture low-ply range minimizes waste, reduces production costs, and expedites the cutting process for greater control managing fluctuations in production volume.

Efficiencies enabled by the two models – VectorFurniture iX2 & VectorFurniture Q2 – help manufacturers adapt to changing demand and maintain cost-effective operations.
