Orient Craft goes digital, installs TUKAcad Systems

Orient Craft Limited in India installs 55 TUKAcad pattern making, grading and SMARTmark automatic marker making stations, developing all patterns digitally for the first time in the company's history.

Tukatech is pleased to announce that Orient Craft Limited, India's largest exporter of apparel goods, has made the transition from manual pattern making to digital/CAD pattern making and automatic marker making with remarkable results.

“I tried every possible CAD system available to get rid of paper patterns but they all failed. I had given up till I met Tukatech. I am so looking forward to having the biggest bonfire with all our paper patterns,” commented Mr Sudhir Dhingra, Chairman of Orient Craft Ltd.

“We are producing twice as many patterns with 40 percent less pattern makers, the quality of patterns has improved and the results are absolutely fantastic,” says Nidhi Dutt, Orient Craft's Executive Vice President.

Orient Craft is a winner of many national and presidential awards for their influence in the Indian apparel market. With thousands of employees operating in dozens of factories across India, Orient Craft has successfully managed to supply goods to many major brands around the world for over 30 years.

“We make specialized garments for Gap, Esprit, Anne Taylor, Tommy Hilfiger, Guess, Marks & Spencer, Levis, A & F, FMG and many European brands, getting a consistent fit is very important. We have so many artisans working here who had absolutely no knowledge of computers but are so talented. Of course new technologies make us more efficient, but to have our old timers use this was really challenging,” commented Mr. Sahil Dhingra, Director of Orient Craft.

“Looking at a 50-plus year old pattern master start making patterns on the second day on a CAD system with more productivity and better quality patterns [than he had done manually] is truly remarkable. He had no exposure to computers and yet he is now a CAD operator. The [Tukatech] systems, training, pre-engineering and implementation are truly professional,” he continued.

“We make millions of garments and thousands of styles, we needed faster sample approvals as demand for more styles continues to grow. We are so glad to replace all our old systems with TUKAcad. The time, material and personnel savings had the quickest payback, we know we will be getting better at this as our operators get better at the system,” says Nidhi Dutt.

Tukatech is a Los Angeles, CA, USA – based company that provides pattern making, grading and marker making software, web-based product development services, PDM/PLM systems, and manufacturing equipment supported by brick and mortar centers strategically located in garment hubs worldwide.

With over 8,000 systems installed, and thousands of competitive systems replaced, Tukatech is the fastest growing garment CAD/CAM Company in the world. Tukatech was recently ranked by Apparel Magazine as the number 1 Apparel software company in the world.
