LECTRA: Lectra's new game-changing Vector® iQ scales up performance in cutting for fashion, automotive and furniture manufacturing


Lectra's new game-changing Vector®iQ scales up performance in cutting for
fashion, automotive and furniture manufacturing

Excellence is now within the reach of all with the addition of predictive
maintenance and patented continuous cutting to the entire Vector range

Paris, November 8,
2016 -
Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to
industries using fabrics, leather, technical textiles and composite
materials, has launched a smart new version of its best-selling
fabric-cutting solution. Now, for the same price as the previous entry-level
model or lower, depending on the range, manufacturers in the fashion,
automotive and furniture industries can increase productivity by up to 10%
with the automated efficiency of patented continuous cutting, as well as
benefit from predictive maintenance.

The new intelligent Vector iQ features Eclipse continuous cutting, a
functionality previously available only on higher-end models. Developed 22
years ago by Lectra and used by 4,354 companies worldwide, Eclipse increases
productivity by up to 10% due to the ability to cut without interruption as
material automatically advances. Reliability and productivity enabled by
these new features are essential for businesses that depend on maintaining a
competitive cost per part cut and an optimized 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% machine
availability. Remote diagnostics enable data collected on customer premises
to be analyzed 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. Lectra's worldwide presence combined with
best-in-class service and support capabilities ensure Lectra's rapid
intervention, enabling manufacturers to achieve maximum machine availability
and productivity.

"The Vector iQ is a sophisticated yet accessible new breed of fabric-cutting
solution, enabling tremendous gains in productivity and uptime," observes
Céline Choussy Bedouet, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer, Lectra.
"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."
