Lectra offers two new solutions for leather sector

Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials—textiles, leather, industrial fabrics and composite materials, today announced the launch of two new leather cutting ranges: the PLH, specially designed for the leather goods and technical footwear markets, and the PLF, available in two versions—PLF Auto and PLF Furniture.

The results of major investments in R&D, these two new cutter ranges expand Lectra's leather offer. Specially designed for small-run production, the PLF and PLH ranges benefit from know-how developed by Lectra for its high-end systems.

Leather: industries facing numerous constraints -
In an economic context marked by a sharp increase in leather prices and frequent outsourcing and relocation, both of which affect production and logistics management, manufacturers in leather markets are subject to increasingly tight constraints in terms of sourcing costs, stock management and product availability.

For these manufacturers, it is more important than ever to reduce manufacturing times while maintaining a good ratio between quality and return on investment, regardless of how and where they manufacture their products. The ability to significantly save on materials and improve productivity at the leather cutting stage has an immediate and major impact on production costs, while helping to create better-quality products at lower costs and in line with consumer needs.

In order to address a wide variety of customers with extremely diverse profiles—in terms of market, organizational structure, challenges and constraints—Lectra has extended its leather offer with the PLF and PLH ranges. Due to their great versatility, these ranges can cater equally to the needs of SMEs producing small and medium runs and non-OEM products for the automotive industry, as well as for the prototyping and pre-production departments of larger groups.

“These new cutting solutions draw on the expertise we have acquired over more than 15 years working with major players in the leather markets—leather goods, technical footwear, automotive and furniture,” explained Daniel Harari, Lectra CEO. “In the leather industry, every manufacturer is unique and faces its own specific problems.

The hides used differ from one customer to another, as do their requirements in terms of nestings, their organizational constraints, their specific needs, etc. Our strategy is to support our customers through teams of experts and the most advanced technologies in order to optimize their working processes”, he added by saying.

PLF and PLH: important assets for manufacturers in leather markets -
The PLF and PLH ranges give manufacturers who need to cut leather a unique advantage over the rest of the market. These solutions boast the largest usable leather-cutting area, for all types of hide, measuring 3m by 3.2m on the PLF and 3m by 1.3m on the PLH.
