"The Versalis helped us double the output of the hides we cut per hour. We can now use fewer machines and be more productive. The Versalis is a very reliable machine that allows us to work 24 hours a day."

Katskin

With a nationwide installer base featuring over 2,500 restyling locations, Katzkin has created more than one million exciting vehicle interiors in the past 30 years.

CHALLENGE

Katzkin is currently experiencing a surge in orders and its automated cutting equipment was no longer able to handle the demands of working round the clock. With only 24 hours to cut, sew, and deliver up to 800 finished products each day, the company was obliged to employ manual cutters to complete daily orders on time.

SOLUTION

In addition to investigating the bottleneck in cutting, Lectra’s consulting approach involved a thorough check-up of the entire fabric manufacturing process, from pattern-making onwards. Lectra experts showed Katzkin that significant fabric savings could be made by reorganizing their processes before buying any new equipment.

“It’s imperative that our product fit properly and that the quality is just as good as the factory quality, and the only way to achieve that fit is through precision cutting.”
