Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions for industries using fabrics, leather, technical textiles and composite materials, is helping ZF TRW, the active and passive safety division of ZF Friedrichshafen, pursue airbag growth strategy by delivering two FocusQuantum FT6K for multi-ply airbag fabric for ZF TRW Occupant Safety Systems.

The new cutting room will expand the German car parts maker’s airbag cutting capacity in Europe. This latest collaboration between Lectra and its longtime customer builds on a mutual relationship of trust reaching back to previous ZF TRW projects in Portugal, Poland, Mexico and China. Having recently devised a worldwide airbag growth strategy, the company turned once more to Lectra to help reinforce the capacity of its European manufacturing base.

Early in 2016, Lectra unveiled the revolutionary FocusQuantum range, leading to certification of the integrated airbag cutting solution by the customer’s cutting room managers across the globe. Later that year, ZF TRW also certified Lectra’s FocusQuantum Suite cutting preparation software. The stringent process carried out by ZF TRW bore out the productivity, performance and quality of the state-of-the-art airbag cutting solution and advanced software system.

“By evaluating the solution in accordance with established practices, we were able to confirm that FocusQuantum will help satisfy the projected output of our newest facility. We were impressed by the innovation that Lectra’s FocusQuantum offers, enabling us to significantly reduce our cutting cost per bag,” noted Victor Seoane, head of global manufacturing engineering for Inflatable Restraint Systems, ZF TRW.

“With this new collaboration, Lectra demonstrates yet again the added value built into the integrated design of FocusQuantum. The acquisition of two FocusQuantum will enable ZF TRW to meet short-term productivity objectives while also laying the foundation for future growth,” said Céline Choussy Bedouet, chief marketing and communications officer, Lectra.
