DFM Sp. z o.o based in Dobre Miasto, in the Mazuria region of Poland has chosen Lectra’s Versalis® leather cutting solution to boost the company’s production capacity.

DFM recently constructed a six-hectare extension to its plant, upgraded the existing machinery and equipped the cutting room solely with Lectra solutions, including two Versalis Furniture cutting solutions.

Switching to Versalis means DFM can eliminate manual cutting and is an integral component of the company's strategy to guarantee maximum production efficiency and significant material savings.

Within the first few months of using Versalis, DFM reduced hide consumption by around 5% and thanks to Versalis' offline process, which separates the hide analysis, nesting and cutting phases, the company optimised nesting without affecting productivity. In addition to other process improvements, Versalis also enables DFM to reduce the number of leather cutting room operators and assign them to other departments where they have more value.

“Polish manufacturers are the cornerstone of the European upholstered furniture manufacturing industry and are quickly becoming major players in the global furniture market. Lectra is proud to share its expertise and technology with companies like DFM, whose dynamism and growth positively impact not just the company itself but the whole industry,” states Céline Choussy Bedouet, chief marketing and communications officer, Lectra.
