Lectra to demonstrate VectorTechTex FX at WINDPOWER

May '10
Lectra, the world leader in integrated technological solutions for industries that use soft materials -- textiles, leather, industrial fabrics and composites -- will showcase its complete and integrated suite of solutions dedicated to the manufacturing of industrial fabrics for the wind energy industry at the WINDPOWER 2010 Show.

Held at the Dallas Convention Center in Dallas Texas, May 23 - 26, the WINDPOWER 2010 Conference & Exhibition is North America's largest wind energy industry event of the year and expects over 15,000 wind energy professionals to attend. Lectra (Booth #9861) will demonstrate its dedicated CAD/CAM solutions for automating wind blade development and production, along with their VectorTechTex FX cutting solution for industrial fabrics and composite materials.

Enhancing Lectra's dedicated solution, the recently announced VectorTechTex FX 100, enables companies to cut wide pieces and meets the needs of professionals looking to diversify their offer by covering a broader spectrum of applications. In a tense economic context, in which companies must confront significant changes in their activities and business environment, VectorTechTex FX 100 helps ensure greater flexibility and contributes to increased profitability.

VectorTechTex FX 100 is the most advanced solution available to deliver the flexibility required by professionals working with industrial fabrics and composites. Adaptable and reliable, it is particularly well-suited to short runs and tight production deadlines. By allowing for wider cuts (up to 2.54 meters), VectorTechTex FX 100 stands out from the competition as it can process a wider variety of pieces, all of varying sizes and shapes, while limiting fabric scraps. Material consumption is thus optimized.

According to BTM Consult, an independent consultancy firm specializing in renewable energy, average growth in new installations of wind turbines is estimated at 15.7% per year until 2013. This is expected to rise to 17.2% in 2014. Consequently, companies must prepare now in order to cope effectively with this growing demand and the requirements of the market, both in terms of product quality and flexibility of supply.

According to Roy Shurling, President for Lectra North America, "Lectra's goal is to enable companies in the wind energy industry to meet the challenges they face in this rapidly growing industry. We are pleased that 4 out of the top 5 blade manufactures in the wind energy sector rely on Lectra's high performance solutions. We are committed to our wind turbine clients through the conception, industrialization and cutting of industrial fabrics."
