Lectra Launches MP Vector Cutting Systems Diamino V5 Marker-Making Software

Paris-based Lectra has launched three new versions of its Vector cutting system. VectorFashion MP, VectorLingerie MP and VectorFurniture MP offer Lectras Mass Production (MP) cutting technology, which made its debut in the VectorDenim system.Every industry has its own unique needs, said Pierre-Michel Richer, Vector product manager. The new Vector MP line addresses these very different industry challenges with specific, dedicated technology.Lectra reports the MP technology improves cutting efficiency and productivity: Optimized markers reduce material waste; a bristle block self-cleaning system enables extended high-volume production use; and an Eclipse option that allows cutting during automatic material advance increases productivity by up to 10 percent. Lectra also has released its latest-edition Diamino V5 marker-making software in three versions to address a variety of customer needs. Diamino BasicMark is suitable for companies that make fewer markers. Interactive Diamino MarkPack includes a Shaker function to automatically tighten placement of pieces. Diamino MarkPro allows both interactive and automatic marker-making. An optional Expert module automates batch processing of markers.Manufacturers are tackling new challenges: The number of styles is growing continuously, while the quantities to be produced per product line are decreasing, said Helmut Wagner, Diamino product manager. The company says Diamino V5 reduces marker-making time and enables testing of marker combinations to find the best solution for each style. It is integrated with Modaris pattern design software to reflect design changes immediately.
