Laser Airbag Cutting Solution
Lectra’s integrated laser airbag cutting technology solutions are dedicated to industries using fabrics, leather, technical textiles, and composite materials. The company will deliver a state-of-the-art “FocusQuantum” model, together with robust project management to optimize production capacity for tier-1 airbag supplier Key Safety Systems (KSS; Sterling Heights, MI).
With this acquisition, KSS will expand production capacity in Macedonia, where it manufactures cut-and-sew airbags for the growing European market. The company recently celebrated its 100th anniversary of innovation in automotive safety technology.
KSS was already a Lectra customer in North America and China prior to the acquisition. Lectra’s mature support structure in the Balkan region oversees other large automotive customer installed bases in Macedonia and provides customers such as KSS with responsive turnaround times. Rigorous project management and intensive support (provided by Lectra’s industry experts) will enable KSS to safely launch production within a very demanding timeframe.
