Lectra has released its new VectorTechTex FX 100 cutting solution for industrial fabrics and composite materials.
This new solution is intended to enable companies to cut wide pieces and meet the needs of professionals looking to diversify their offer by covering a broader spectrum of applications.
""The ability to process a wide variety of industrial fabrics with a single, unique cutting solution is now essential to the survival of many companies. By extending the range of possible activities open to them with the VectorTechTex FX 100, these companies will be able to target new markets and, consequently, limit the risks tied to a decrease in volumes,"" said Daniel Harari, Lectra CEO.
Lectra say that the machine is particularly well-suited to short runs and tight production deadlines, and that it can process a wide variety of pieces, all of varying sizes and shapes, while limiting fabric scraps.
