Smart technology by Lectra upgrade and optimize the cutting rooms
Ruyi, a global leader in textile technologies, installs solutions from Lectra to empower mass customization of men’s suits.
Lectra brings state-of-the-art digital and automated cutting technology to support Ruyi Group’s intelligent cutting line and the company’s alignment with the country’s ‘Made in China 2025’ initiative. Carving a clear path towards smart cutting rooms, Ruyi’s installation of eight Lectra cutting machines – including the Vector Matchline which automatically matches lines and grids for suit-making and is a first for Asia Pacific – clearly demonstrates the company’s commitment to a fully automated factory with expert cutting capabilities.
"Lectra Vector Matchline is the world's most advanced cutting machine capable of cutting with every line and grid perfectly matched," said Qiuya Fu, chairman of Shandong Ruyi Group. "As a company dedicated to technology innovation, we are glad that Ruyi is the first in China to introduce this cutting machine in fashion making. This enables us to rival with western competitors in terms of technology. It is the value of Ruyi to use the best equipment to manufacture the best products.”
Made in China 2025
Implementing innovative and high performance solutions is pivotal for Chinese companies to embrace the ten-year strategic plan ‘Made in China 2025’. Drafted by the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology – with the guiding principle to upgrade China’s industries – the initiative is fast propelling the Chinese economy towards value-added manufacturing and smart industrial production. Embracing ‘Made in China 2025’, Ruyi has selected Lectra’s advanced technology for the company’s recently-launched intelligent men’s suits production line, at a factory in Yinchuan, Northern China.
A blossoming market in China – influenced by an improvement in people’s living standards, and the parallel desire to showcase personality through clothes – mass customization demands production systems with robust end-to-end integrated data. For Ruyi, installing Lectra’s leading edge technology will optimize manufacturing and efficiency, reduce waste and improve overall product quality.
“This is a new milestone in the strategic alliance between Lectra and Ruyi, signed in 2014. Drawing on over four decades of innovation and expertise in the fashion industry, Lectra is the right partner to accompany Ruyi as it continues to embrace innovative solutions for the cutting room,” underlined Céline Choussy Bedouet, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer, Lectra.
