LEATHER CUTTING ROOM

Lay the foundation for your Industry 4.0 future with smart manufacturing technology for leather furniture manufacturing.

IMPROVING HIDE MANAGEMENT IN THE UPHOLSTERED FURNITURE INDUSTRY

Leather represents 60% of the total cost of a piece of furniture. The market share of leather furniture is increasing: as Chinese customers do not want to compromise between design and comfort, leather is a key differentiator.

Sourcing and managing hides is a growing challenge for furniture manufacturers, so that having an integrated solution covering the entire process from quality-check on delivery to stock control after cutting is crucial.

The Chinese government is already supporting this transition to smart manufacturing, with "Made in China 2025", an initiative to upgrade Chinese industry.
