Lectra helps Shandong Ruyi with Industry 4.0 upgrading
May '17
France based industry-leading technology company Lectra has supported Chinese group Shandong Ruyi to upgrade its Tai’an menswear factory from a traditional garment plant into an Industry 4.0-ready production facility empowered by technology and smart manufacturing. The transformation is in line with the 'Made in China 2025' plan of the Chinese government.

With the help of Lectra’s experts, Ruyi began implementing leaner cutting methods at the Tai’an location, kick-starting productivity in its cutting room by adopting Lectra’s automated marker making software and adding 6 new vector cutters to the factory floor. "After working with Lectra, our cutting room is leaner; our machine uptime has increased; our fabric utilisation rate is up 1 per cent and production efficiency has increased by 30 per cent," said Qiu Mu Ke, chairman, Tai’an Ruyi Technology Fashion Industry Co.

Ruyi has begun using Lectra's automated marker-making software Diamino to speed up pre-production and installed six new high-speed vector machines on the factory floor that would not only improve the quality of their finished product with more accurate cutting, but would also allow them to deliver to customers faster by improving overall efficiency and boosting productivity. During the transition, Lectra’s experts were on hand to offer advice and technical support. "By continuing to provide us with superior services that in turn, improve our offer, Lectra can also help us to improve the image of our brands," said Qiu. "As we go forward, we will work with Lectra to adapt to changes in the market and in customer demand."

"Lectra’s strength is that they are leaders in integrated solutions, technology and R&D, all of which provide a strong foundation for our move to lean production and smart manufacturing," said Qiu. Together, Ruyi and Lectra assembled a project team and mapped out a detailed plan that would update the company’s way of working and transform the plant into a modern manufacturing facility.

Ruyi supported 'Made in China 2025' since the beginning when it was unveiled in 2015. It is a ten-year plan intended to transform China from a manufacturing giant into a world manufacturing power by upgrading its industry to smart technology and emphasising superior product quality and brand image.
