Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using fabrics, leather, technical textiles, and composite materials, has announced the renewal of its partnership with Faurecia, one of the world’s largest automotive equipment suppliers, through the signing of a global agreement for its seating business group.

The cutting process for the production of seat covers, headrests, and interiors is an increasingly strategic part of Faurecia’s seating activity. Faurecia seating supplies vehicle complete seats, frames, mechanisms, and trim covers to major car-makers worldwide, whose manufacturing processes are gradually evolving toward Industry 4.0.

Faurecia seating aims to double the production of its existing manufacturing facilities by reinforcing operations with advanced manufacturing technologies. The company’s extended partnership with Lectra entails focusing on operational excellence initiatives across its automotive seating division. Standardisation of the Vector fabric-cutting solution, endowed with preventive and predictive maintenance capabilities and the highest-performance cutting system available in the market, will be instrumental to the implementation of these initiatives throughout the division’s fabric cutting facilities. Faurecia currently has more than 60 Vector fabric cutting solutions in production worldwide.

Hagen Wiesner, executive vice president, Faurecia Seating said, “More than ever, we face major challenges in terms of flexibility, agility, and productivity—producing more while reducing costs. Our cutting processes have become strategic in reaching these goals. Faurecia’s ‘digital enterprise’ project aims to achieve operational excellence in virtually every aspect of our organisation. Together with Lectra, we will make this a reality in the cutting room, with smart automation and predictive maintenance”

Daniel Harari, Lectra chairman and CEO said, “Given the profound transformations gripping manufacturing, helping our customers ready their operations for the Fourth Industrial Revolution has become without question our core mission. Faurecia is among the automotive suppliers at the forefront of this movement. Digital technologies and industry expertise are the business enablers that will allow manufacturers to connect inside and outside the value chain in the near future." (GK)
