NewChef Fashion Purchases Tukatech Cutter
NewChef Fashion Inc. — a Los Angeles based supplier of uniforms to the culinary industry — has installed a TUKACut™ automatic fabric cutting machine from Tukatech Inc., a Los Angeles-based provider of product development solutions for the apparel and sewn goods industry.
Features of the cutter include a touch-screen keypad, flexible and compact cut table, independent cutting beam that incorporates the cutting head, a stand-alone cutting unit with intelligent management and integrated power, power save system, self-sharpening knife, take-off conveyor table, control step motion program, and fault detector, among other features.
“This is my second largest investment besides our building, but we are committed to make it here and stay competitive,” said NewChef Fashion CEO Lucien Salama. The company is participating in an Army Initiative to have all cooks wear coats that are made in America. Salama reports the TUKACut provides perfect cuts and is exceeding his expectations.
“We have seen a tremendous increase in our domestic business in 2013 and 2014,” said Tukatech CEO Ram Sareen. “Many brands and retailers are bringing development and manufacturing back to USA. We are meeting their fashion needs with our commitment to design and development by installing cutters, spreaders and our 2D/3D CAD systems.”
