Lectra unveils new version of Vector fabric-cutting suite
Nov '16
Lectra, leader in integrated technology solutions for industries using fabrics, leather, technical textiles, and composite materials, has launched a smart new version of fabric-cutting solution, Vector iQ, used in fashion, automotive, and furniture manufacturing. Vector iQ features Eclipse continuous cutting, a functionality available in higher-end models.

Eclipse increases productivity by up to 10 per cent due to the ability to cut without interruption as material automatically advances.

Now, for the same price as the previous entry-level Vector model or lower, depending on the range, manufacturers in the fashion, automotive and furniture industries can increase productivity by up to 10 per cent with the automated efficiency of patented continuous cutting, as well as benefit from predictive maintenance.

Reliability and productivity enabled by these new features are essential for businesses that depend on maintaining a competitive cost per part cut and an optimised total cost of ownership. The operational excellence long targeted by automotive suppliers is now shaping best practices in the fashion and furniture manufacturing industries. Offered for the first time ever with entry-level Vector models, Lectra Power Premium service coverage includes predictive maintenance designed to drive down the risk of machine downtime and stoppage.

By benefiting from proactive, data-driven diagnostics and recommendations on the appropriate course of action, Lectra Power Premium customers can achieve up to 98 per cent machine availability. Remote diagnostics enable data collected on customer premises to be analysed in real time and compared against previously defined standards. This enables the Lectra customer care team to alert customers to potential technical issues before a breakdown even takes place. By drawing on the strengths of a global structure, Lectra can provide the right level of support to contract customers at any location, within a guaranteed time-frame.

Céline Choussy Bedouet, chief marketing and communications officer, Lectra said, “The Vector iQ is a sophisticated yet accessible new breed of fabric-cutting solution, enabling tremendous gains in productivity and uptime. Both of which are sources of value for our customers, whether they produce vehicle seating, furniture, or fashion clothing. Versatile and affordable, it scales up performance to a new standard.” (GK)
