In anticipation for our upcoming webinar on the 28th of June, the PCIAW® has conducted an interview with OPTITEX regarding their digital manufacturing solutions and the benefits their process can have for clients.
This week we’ll learn about the foundations at the core of OPTITEX’s offerings, including the software they use for their digital cutting platform and how digitalisation can help international businesses.
How broad is the OPTITEX technology portfolio and how can businesses adopt the solution?
“The Optitex technology portfolio branches across various sectors. Starting with integrated 2D/3D with PDS, to nesting tools like Marker, fabric management tools, 3DDI for Adobe Illustrator and a cloud platform with O/Cloud.
Businesses can adopt any part of our ecosystem without being locked into the full ecosystem, unlike other 2D specialists. This means our tools are compatible with most major formats, allowing a company to choose exactly how they want to work.”
How is OPTITEX’s Industry 4.0 technology helping businesses to digitalise workflows for an optimised supply chain?
“By using our technologies, such as O/Cloud, PDS and Marker, companies can digitally cut down on the amount of fabric they use, create a more efficient workflow, use fewer digital samples, reduce unnecessary steps in the production supply chain and use a centralized digital location for collaboration.”
What are the key motivations for uniform businesses to adopt the technologies?
“Reducing costs, streamlining workflow and reducing the number of physical samples needed are the key motivations to adopt this technology. And, as the global workforce continues to expand, now more than ever we need tools that enable companies to collaborate while working in different countries. If a business future proofs itself now, it will be prepared for the future.”
The OPTITEX webinar will educate on how uniform and PPE companies can future-proof growth by digitalising the production chain to become truly sustainable brands.
As the professional clothing industry focuses on its progress to net zero, OPTITEX’s solution offers an efficient workflow that supports sizing and fit predictability, increases productivity, reduces textile waste and mitigates against the supply chain challenges of skill shortages and inflation.
Hosted by OPTITEX’s EMEA Manager, James McDermott, this webinar will also include Customer Success expert, Tamar Kikoria. Kikoria will explore the various tools OPTITEX’s product development solution offers for reducing returns and waste by utilising useful tools, ranging from cross-size simulation and advanced fit analysis tools, to PLM integration and costing.
The PCIAW® and OPTITEX will then take a special look at OPTITEX’s capabilities for military and outdoor clothing, where complex patterns and costly materials are involved.
To inspire your digital process, Giulia Sarno, OPTITEX’s Italy Manager, will share one of OPTITEX’s great customer stories in the uniform domain.
