Chicago-based Freedman Seating, a vehicle seat manufacturer, has chosen Lectra to expand its production capacity to meet the growing demand for upholstered seating products.
Freedman Seating manufactures seats and seating-related products for a variety of transportation means, including buses, trains, boats, delivery trucks, speciality and commercial vehicles.
Freedman Seating was already equipped with one Vector®, Lectra's fabric cutting solution. This study enabled Lectra to recommend a solution combining a second Vector cutter and Mosaic software. Mosaic automatically compensates for any distortion and adjusts the cutting path, ensuring that patterned pieces match perfectly when assembled.
"Over the years, we have developed a deep understanding of our customer's business, and that experience has made us a reliable, trusted business partner," says Jason Adams, president, Lectra North America.
"The resulting solution of two Vector cutters, coupled with Mosaic, not only doubles Freedman Seating's production capacity, but it also gives the company the ability to scale its cutting room as demand continues to increase."
