What are craftsman of leather goods and furniture looking for in production machines?
The optimism with which we showed up at SIMAC 2017, pushed by the introduction of three new digital cutting systems, has been more than repaid by a large number of visitors who have shown keen interest and real curiosity in the new proposals Made in Elitron.
The vibe that this trade fair is making us feel is good and positive. Especially with a look at international markets, growth outlooks are actual, promising and led by the fact that creating an integrated and interconnected production work flow is becoming a need that industry operators consider ever more imperative and which advantages are obvious.
The main attraction was undoubtedly the new double-head Plaza TH system, introduced for the first time on the occasion of SIMAC 2017. A digital cutting solution dedicated to large size materials for industries such as furniture and automotive, Plaza TH redraws the paradigms of the traditional cutting systems performance.
The innovation and the improvement of productivity are not only to be attributed to the addition of the second independent beam but especially to the development of software dedicated to the workload balancing of each cutting head and the optimization of the machine operation.
Most visitors showed great interest in what we believe to be the new frontier of leather and furnishing materials cutting: maximizing workflow all the way from the acquisition to the cutting execution.
In fact, thanks to Visio nesting tables is now possible to have a dedicated station to scan the material to detect any defects, therefore the placement can either be carried out traditionally or offline.
The remotely managed nesting represents the change towards a more fluid workflow where productivity is maximized. The advantages in terms of competitiveness are real, tangible and immediate: first of all the cutting system always remains productive since it is never used as a nesting station; the optimization of the materials is greater since it is no longer performed on a skin by skin basis but rather automatically managed on the whole scanned hides stock. The innovation made in Elitron will lead the productivity of each department being continuous for the duration of each cycle.
The Booster ICE cutting system, dedicated to the footwear industry, which represents our trademark, has been praised and appreciated on the edge of the increasingly flowing word of mouth among the industry operators.
User friendliness, exceptional quality performances along with low management costs and simple maintenance operations, have made this system the preferred working partner of each cutting operator.
For the world of textile materials typical of fashion and upholstery, we presented the evolution of the conveyor cutting systems of Kudos Series. These upgrades have satisfied all operators in the fashion high-end whose production volumes require suitable solutions for continuous processing with reduced overall dimensions. Also on Kudos the real added value is represented by the additional functionalities offered by the software: in fact, thanks to NestCut you can automatically nest the pieces to be cut according to the texture or the printing present on the material and in compliance with predetermined stylistic rules during the design phase.
In this step towards the Industry 4.0 automation, Elitron has shown to be present and, as usual, to be able to deliver solutions that enable operators to make a real leap forward in terms of competitiveness.
