Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using fabrics, leather, technical textiles, and composite materials, has announced that Italy's Gruppo Mastrotto, the leading tannery in Europe, has turned to Lectra for its digital transformation in leather cutting and chosen its Versalis leather cutting solution.

Gruppo Mastrotto tannery is equipped with one of the industry's largest just-in-time leather delivery hubs, guaranteed on-premises in 48 hours or less. To keep up with the larger volumes of leather seats and interiors required by its end-customers, Gruppo Mastrotto is once again driving innovative change, by digitalising its leather cutting value chain.

Consumers today expect a broader array of choices for a more personalised vehicle interior, which entails greater supply chain complexity due to a wider range of product variants and faster product changeovers. By equipping its cutting rooms and digitalising its processes with Lectra's automotive leather expertise and Versalis leather-cutting solution, the tannery aims to gain greater flexibility and agility to meet evolving consumer demands and become even more responsive to vehicle manufacturer end-customers. Lectra's Versalis leather cutting solution enables uninterrupted hide cutting with an unparalleled level of quality and material gains impossible to achieve using die presses. In addition to reducing costs by eliminating retooling and enabling significant material savings, Versalis improves flexibility and agility by removing the need for foam-model development, saving eight to 12 weeks of development time in the process.

Alberto Silvagni, automotive general manager, Gruppo Mastrotto said, “Supplying automotive parts is not just a matter of filling orders. It is also about meeting the customer's changing requirements, both in terms of styling and volume. The die cutters we once used would never have allowed us to keep up with the OEMs' new demands the way our new digitalised solutions do.”

Céline Choussy Bedouet, chief marketing officer, Lectra said, “We are pleased to be able to support Gruppo Mastrotto as it expands its manufacturing footprint in these high-growth markets. By helping Gruppo Mastrotto manage flexibility in their cutting process, we can help them reduce time to market and meet customer demands faster.” (GK)
