CLS Auto, unique non-stop production process

Jun '09
Substantial savings and greater competitiveness
With CLS Auto, automotive manufacturers are now able to make annual savings that run into hundreds of thousands of euros. Savings can be generated through reduced purchasing and tool costs, but also through substantially lower working capital requirements and operating costs due to the deployment of just-in-time production models. In addition, reductions in electricity consumption and the elimination of the need for plastic film to hold hides in place also create savings.

The value of a unique, powerful and user-friendly leather cutting system like the CLS Auto, with its low operating costs and ability to generate such large material savings is obvious. Zenda, a German company that specializes in cutting high-quality leather for the automotive market, has certainly felt the benefits of the solution.

"We chose Lectra because the company offers an integrated solution for the whole process, which is really flexible and simple to use,” said Ulrich Sandmeyer, Product Engineering Manager for Zenda Waldfischbach. “Since we installed the CLS Auto automatic leather cutting solution, our productivity has improved by around 5 to 8%. In addition, Lectra experts trained our staff to use the solution effectively in less than two weeks.” Zenda is one of Lectra's first customers to integrate CLS Auto into its production environment, replacing two traditional presses.

"CLS Auto is the perfect solution in the current macroeconomic climate, where it is more important than ever for companies to implement value-added technologies and solutions that enable them to boost their competitiveness and sustain their sales strategy," said Daniel Harari, Lectra CEO.
