Manufacturing - Cutting
Because we pride ourselves on the quality of our products and the high standard of our workmanship, Versapak only use the very best and most appropriate materials available.
So as not to compromise the versatility and usability of these materials, we use highly accurate cutting machines.
We have invested heavily our cutting equipment - our fully-automated Lectra cutting machine represents a significant outlay of over €200,000 and consistently proves its worth by achieving an average material yield of 99%. This machine is capable of running practically unsupervised for entire shifts at a time, and at maximum speed of a metre of material per second, can achieve 20,000 metres of cutting every day.
While the Lectra machine offers a speedy and cost-effective cutting option, we also run a manual cutting setup. Through the use of cutting dies and good old-fashioned scissors, our staff can manually produce smaller runs and sample pieces to our usual high standard.
Versapak use advanced CAD programs to ensure absolute precision in the shaping and sizing of fabrics - this software even instructs our operators of how best to load the material. This allows us to create effective products to any specification - we are more than comfortable crafting items in irregular or unusual shapes.
