Turkish furniture and bedding company Yataş Group has invested in a Lectra Vector cutting system for increased cutting room optimisation.
Yataş Group, one of the leading companies in the furniture and mattress industry with more than 1,400 employees and over 400 sales points, aims to increase its cutting quality and efficiency, while optimising its operations for the millions of mattresses, sofas and home textiles it produces each year.
Nuri Öztaşkın, CEO of Yataş Group, recognises that the Industry 4.0 transformation is accelerating day by day, in order to provide high standards and fast delivery in the industry. “Our collections stand out with their stylish design, quality and comfort, and for this reason, they are the preferred choice of consumers.
“Yataş Group has decided to invest in a smart industrial transformation that will increase the speed and efficiency of our production line and reduce fabric waste, in order to raise our standards even more.
“For this reason, we have chosen Lectra for our smart industry investments, entering into a solution partnership with the only brand in the world working with digital technologies in the cutting of industrial textile products.
“This new generation technology that provides more precise and faster cutting is a huge advantage. We have not only cut costs, but also aimed to improve the flow of operations and increase production capacity by maintaining the number of existing employees. By choosing Lectra, we increased our cutting room efficiency by 30%.”
Zeynep Uluocak, Managing Director Turkey & Middle East at Lectra, added: “Industrial transformation is increasingly more important in our industries, where costs are increasing day by day and profitable growth is harder to achieve. Post-pandemic developments in particular have made it no longer a choice, but almost a necessity, to invest in technologies that process materials without error and waste, minimize energy consumption, and measure efficiency in real time, in order to minimize the production costs of industries worldwide.
“As you know, fabrics make up 60% of sofa production costs, especially in this period where costs have increased due to the increase in exchange rates and transportation. It makes a huge difference to be able to reduce the consumption of fabric meters.
“The biggest advantage Lectra offers this sector is the opportunity to save up to 5% in fabric consumption, with optimum placement of patterns and cutting technology with zero share in the cutting of fabrics. This yields significant cost saving results.”
