Focusing on quality while minimizing leather waste
With Versalis’ automated nesting software, Zolano can now analyze their leather consumption, develop nesting and cutting strategies based on leather specifications, and prioritize their cut parts. This enables the company to increase both their hide yield and productivity.
“Thanks to Versalis, we have increased material savings by 1.1%. We can now cut up to 13 hides per hour, which is quite a feat, since this represents a 25% increase in throughput for us,” attests Mr. Yap Hoo, Founder and Managing Director, Zolano.
The new Versalis, with its embedded scanner that can recognize up to five defect qualification grades, is able to analyze hides of all types, sizes and colors in one single pass. This enables Zelano cutting room operators to eliminate defects faster and not waste time adjusting and cleaning the scanner as they had to with their previous cutting equipment.
