Bradford-based contract furniture company, Knightsbridge Furniture, has invested in an L-Series Pathfinder fabric cutting machine, as part of several investments the company has planned for 2022/23.
The investment was made with the Australian-based manufacturer, Pathfinder, through its UK agent and installer, AE Sewing Machines in Wrexham.
Knightsbridge recently purchased its fourth CNC Router, to help meet increased demand, and improve productivity and energy usage.
Jason Brown, Director of Design & Development said, “this new addition to the factory is an exciting investment for Knightsbridge. We are keen to invest in cutting-edge technology to improve our products and services wherever we can. The Pathfinder fabric cutting machine is industry-leading fabric equipment which will allow us to cut additional shapes and sizes and greatly increase our production speed.”
The Pathfinder fabric cutting machine replaced an older and difficult-to-maintain cutting system. The new addition has a vastly reduced maintenance program and provides greater cutting accuracy. With better accuracy and material control, the Pathfinder allows Knightsbridge to replicate the quality of products whilst also improving lead times.
