Lectra unveils new version of marker-making solution

Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials—fabrics, leather, technical textiles and composite materials, has released DiaminoFashion V6R2, the latest version of its marker-making solution.

The new release expands the scope of its automated marker-making capability, producing better results and bigger savings in the cutting room.

Part of Lectra’s fashion and apparel offer, DiaminoFashion helps streamline the development process and keep production costs down without sacrificing product quality, forming an integral part of a lean process from product development to cutting room. With DiaminoFashion, companies can plan strategically to ensure they get the most out of every last inch of fabric—sometimes before even a single physical prototype is created, according to a Lectra press release.

The latest version brings manufacturers one step closer to fully automated marker making with new added controls that make it possible to take fabric flaws and quality issues into account automatically.

Amir Pradhan, managing director of Pradhan Mercantile, a manufacturer of quality ready-made apparel (India) said, “With DiaminoFashion V6R2, we can now stipulate that key pattern pieces need to be placed next to each other during automated processing, whereas before, we had to lay this type of marker by hand. Our marker-making time has been cut in half and with the additional improvements in efficiency, we have also been able to reduce our fabric waste by up to 1 per cent.”

Manufacturers under pressure to meet tight deadlines can also keep up with peaks in activity by using DiaminoFashion’s automated processing feature to take advantage of off-hours. It boasts enhanced processing power that can batch process marker lists faster than before, overnight or while other tasks are being performed during the day, for a double dose of productivity. In addition, it can be launched directly from Lectra’s cutting-room optimization solution Optiplan, for a streamlined process that saves companies both time and fabric.

DiaminoFashion V6R2 allows companies to accurately predict how much a given product will cost to produce ahead of time, for more informed decision making. The solution’s integrated technology also connects design, development and production teams through seamless data sharing between Lectra’s different design, development and cutting-room solutions.
