His presentation, “How automating automotive leather cutting can improve margins”, will demonstrate how operators in the automotive leather supply chain can optimise the full area of each hide and avoid defects and rejections.

His presentation will be of particular interest to automotive tanners, OEMs, and Tier-1 suppliers that want to get the best possible cutting yield from their leathers.

Christophe Gaysse joins, Valerio Garcia Leather Team Leader, Faurecia Interior Systems and Florian Schrey, Director of Design Europe for GST Seton Autoleather and Paul Pearson, General Secretary of the International Council of Tanners who will also be key speakers at the conference.

The half-day (afternoon) conference will take place at the prestigious five-star Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel in the Pudong district of Shanghai. The timing and the location of the conference has been specifically chosen to be located opposite the Shanghai New International Exhibition Centre (SNIEC), the venue for the All China Leather Exhibition (ACLE), which takes place September 3-5.
