Bradford-based contract furniture company, Knightsbridge Furniture, invests in a six figure M-Series Pathfinder fabric cutting machine, as part of a number of 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 has made significant investment this year and recently purchased its fourth CNC Router, to help meet increased demand, improve productivity and energy usage.
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. From silk to aramid, the multi-layered fabric cutting machine is fast, accurate and delivers high precision results. The new investment allows for fantastic fabric nesting techniques which will hugely increase production, material utilisation and time efficiency. With better accuracy and material control, the Pathfinder allows Knightsbridge to replicate the quality of products whilst also improving lead times.
Jason Brown, Director of Design & Development, Knightsbridge, comments: “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.”
Knightsbridge has been designing and manufacturing British furniture from its site in Yorkshire for more than 80 years. From the timbermill to the customer’s doorstep, the company takes pride in facilitating the entire production and delivery of its products and is dedicated to quality and design. This has inspired customer loyalty and ensured Knightsbridge’s place at the forefront of its industry.
