ExactFlat & Simplicity Works to automate sewing process
ExactFlat, the leader in 3D to 2D flattening and digital patterning, has announced plans for a development and marketing agreement with Simplicity Works, to automate pattern making processes and eliminate manual sewing tasks in textile production. Simplicity Works are the innovative developers of 3D bonding tools working for the textile industry.

The 3D bonding process makes overlapping seams obsolete. This ensures a stronger resulting product or garment with less chance of separation at the seams. Removing the overlap also reduces the material requirements and improves comfort.

Eaton Donald, CEO of ExactFlat said, “We are delighted to be working with Simplicity Works as they have a clear vision for the future of automated manufacturing in the fashion and textiles industry, and a strong commitment to driving change. Workflow innovation continues to inspire us as our clients are constantly looking to find new ways to reduce production costs, increase design flexibility and shorten delivery cycle times. Our vision is to eliminate manual tasks throughout the process and we will continue to aggressively partner with other industry leaders to make that a reality.”

3D bonding technology, developed by Simplicity Works, simplifies the manufacture of soft goods such as footwear. It works as an injection process that bonds multiple pattern piece and materials together in a few seconds, ensuring a stable and seamless product and eliminating manual sewing.

Fernando Nicolás García, innovation officer at Simplicity Works said, “With 3D bonding, we have delivered a novel solution for manufacturing of all types of products including leather footwear, technical apparel, furniture and seating. Our technology eliminates the need of complex stitching operations, reduces manual labour by as much as 70 per cent, and improves the mechanical performance of the products.”

After several years of testing and development, the companies are now ready to engage manufacturers beyond the initial beta test group. (GK)
