Discover Lectra's latest flexible cutting solutions

Lectra has launched a new range of low-ply cutting equipment to help furniture manufacturers overcome the challenges of pull-mode production.

Lectra's new low-ply fabric cutter range is designed to satisfy fluctuating order volumes, increasing complexity in furniture production, and evolving sustainability requirements.

Today, minimising waste, reducing production costs, and speeding up the cutting process are key to managing fluctuations in production volume, says the machinery specialist, adding: "With the addition of the brand-new VectorFurniture Q2/iX2 low-ply cutting range, furnituremakers can overcome the demand fluctuations and operational challenges of pull-mode production.

Quickly fulfil orders, no matter the volume

"Switch quickly and easily from small-series production to greater volumes with minimum interruptions to production flow and lead times," Lectra continues, "Cut faster and more accurately at a lower overall cost to keep up with the rising trend in small-volume production and shorter lead times.

Reduce total cost of ownership

"Achieve the lowest cost per cut part through maximum uptime. Vector’s intelligent built-in sensors monitor cutting performance by transmitting data in real time to Lectra’s Expertise Center, for fast, remote resolution of most technical issues.

Minimise environmental impact

"The new VectorFurniture range features a reduced environmental footprint compared to previous generations. User-centered design enables improved operator efficiency and the highest level of sustainable productivity. A new turbine and new electronics enrich the value proposition regarding CSR aspects – less noisy, this cutting equipment can save up to 50% of electrical consumption compared to the previous generation.

Compatible with the all-new Furniture On Demand

"The launch on January 23rd of the all-new Furniture On Demand featuring digital platform Valia marked the solution’s compatibility with the bestselling VectorFurniture fabric-cutting equipment range for the first time ever.

"Automated workflow within Valia enables furniture companies to overcome pull-mode manufacturing complexity, while powerful data analytics support sustainable productivity and skills development to future-proof the workforce.

"Expand the possibilities of cutting room performance with the new VectorFurniture Q2 and VectorFurniture iX2 low-ply cutters," Lectra concludes.
