Leading shoe manufacturer headquartered in Spain, Alta Zapateria, has invested in high-tech Zund G3 leather cutting system. Zund is a company specialising in developing and manufacturing digital cutting systems. Alta Zapateria figures among Spain’s leading shoe manufacturers and has retail stores in cities from New York, Paris, Hong Kong, and Sidney.

Despite the strong focus on traditional craftsmanship, Alta Zapateria is open to employing modern production equipment. With the investment in a Zünd G3 cutter with projection system, digital leather cutting became an integral part of company’s production workflow. For CEO Antonio Albadalejo and his team, a primary goal of the cutter acquisition was to preserve Alta Zapateria’s many proprietary templates in digital form. Other requirements for the new cutting system were to increase the precision of the leather cutting process and to speed up the time-consuming punching operations dictated by intricate hole patterns.

Antonio said, “In our testing, we quickly discovered that the Zünd G3 cutter would fulfil these needs perfectly. What convinced us was Zünd’s unique ability to combine high levels of performance, precision, and reliability as manifested in the G3. With the new cutting system, we are taking a step into high technology while still maintaining our identity as a high-end shoe manufacturer who takes great pride in traditional production methods.”

Up until now innumerable cardboard templates were stored in boxes, requiring maintenance and organisation that became increasingly complex and laborious. By digitising the company’s exclusive templates, Alta Zapateria has been able to significantly increase production security.

The G3 cutter is used for cutting patterns and templates as well as for production. Only particularly challenging leathers, such as the extremely tough shell cordovan, are still being cut by hand because of the variations in thicknesses. (GK)
