Lectra Upgrades Diamino Marker-Making Solutions
Lectra, Paris, has upgraded its Diamino marker-making software - available as DiaminoFashion,
DiaminoFootwear, DiaminoFurniture and DiaminoTechTex - to provide more powerful marker-making
algorithms than previous versions and improved management of constraints specific to each market.
In addition to interactive manual marker making, the product offers automated marker making that increases productivity and reduces fabric waste, according to Lectra. Customers report material savings of 3 to 4 percent using the new software compared with previous versions. The new system also takes into account the technical characteristics of the material to be cut and manages patterned fabrics appropriately, recognizing and removing fabric flaws in cut pieces and monitoring the grain line to improve cutting quality.
"The ability to combine these two modes of marker-making, applied to the specific business constraints of fashion, furniture, automotive and industrial fabrics companies, is a considerable competitive advantage for our customers and it is one of the key points which allows them to make significant savings in terms of both fabric and time," said Daniel Harari, Lectra CEO.
