Elitron’s new double-head Plaza TH system, a digital cutting solution for large-size materials in the industrial processing of materials for furniture and automotive upholstery, registered great interest during the trade fair. Plaza TH redraws the paradigms of the traditional cutting systems performances; the improvement in productivity is achieved through the addition of a second independent beam, but also thanks to the development of software dedicated to the workload balancing of each cutting head, and the optimisation of the machine operation.

“Most visitors showed great interest in what we believe is going to be the new frontier of leather cutting: maximising workflow from the acquisition to the cut. In fact, thanks to Visio nesting tables, it is now possible to have a dedicated station to scan the material, detect any defects and allow the placement can be successively carried out in a traditional or offline manner”, says Elitron. According to the company, the advantages in terms of competitiveness are “real, tangible and immediate”.

Elitron’s Booster ICE cutting system dedicated to footwear was also subject of interest. The ease of use, exceptional quality performances along with low management costs, and simplicity in maintenance operations, are the drivers behind the product’s success.

In the step towards the Industry 4.0 automation, Elitron aims to deliver solutions that enable operators to make a real leap forward in terms of competitiveness. “The outlook for us is promising as all of the new systems have really drawn a good deal of interest”, Giacomo Zoppi, Marketing, Elitron, told ILM.
