Lectra's New Vector Fabric Cutter Helps Pandora Boost Quality

By Jordan Speer, Editor in Chief
Lectra has launched a new line of its Vector fabric cutters.

Based on the efficiency and intelligence of the Vector cutting solutions, the new cutting room combines high value-added software, machines powered by pioneer technology and business expertise acquired by Lectra over nearly 40 years.

"As the key element of the cutting room, Vector provides access to new levels of productivity and material savings; said Bertrand Crönert, manufacturing marketing director, Lectra.

Several anti-error devices contribute to simplifying and accelerating the production of each product line. The new ergonomic, intuitive, visual interface enables continuous monitoring and control of every step of the manufacturing process, alerting the operator in case of a hazard. One hundred and twenty sensors monitor the behavior of the cutting head in action to optimize the cutting in real-time and reduce material consumption. The predictive maintenance system keeps production moving by preventing potential failures.

"We found rapid benefits when using the new Vector. Lectra solutions help us to achieve our goals of quality and being on time," said Claudia Trifan, head of production at Pandora, a manufacturer of jackets for top-of-the-range European brands. "We chose Lectra for its unique solutions and its excellent support. The new Vector enables us to increase our quality and increase our flexibility, with a shorter integration period."

The new features provided by this latest generation of Vector cutters, related to the software and service offer, introduce higher standards of productivity and reliability, and enable companies to control the performance within cutting rooms in industries as diverse as those of fashion, automotive, furnishings and aeronautics.
