Why automation and digitalization for furniture small serie production ?

To succeed in a highly fragmented furniture market and meet consumer demand for high-quality products at competitive prices, forward-thinking furniture manufacturers are relying more and more on small-series and customized products. The shift enables operational leaders to maximize efficiency, minimize waste and capitalize on new opportunities.

Furniture manufacturers seeking to serve this market will have to solve some difficult cutting and production process challenges. In addition, they are saddled with the operational challenges of maximizing efficiency, minimizing waste, and increasing productivity.

Greater control of the cutting preparation and execution process requires having the right tools for the job. By harnessing the reliability and consistency of digitalization and automation in the cutting preparation and execution process, furniture manufacturers are able to reduce labor costs, reliance on difficult to source labor expertise, and can deliver customized products as quickly as possible.

Easily manage material constraints and pattern-making

Small-series and custom-made furniture production requires furniture manufacturers to adjust quickly to various fabric handling specifications and to verify and validate a wide variety and volume of fabric patterns. Furniture manufacturers seeking to organize their operational processes to work better together and overcome material constraints and motif fabric challenges will benefit from automation and digitalization.

Digital technology and automation makes it easier to cut a larger variety of material types and complex-patterned fabrics. By storing and analyzing fabric information in a digital library, furniture manufacturers are able to take advantage of automatic motif recognition technology and cut motif fabric as fast as plain fabric. Saving time, preventing errors and optimizing the expertise of highly skilled labor are key advantages of a digital cutting room.
