Sommermann KG cuts annual collection on Pathfinder

SOMMERMANN KG is a medium-sized family business in the third generation. At its company headquarters in the Bavarian region of Upper Franconia, SOMMERMANN produces up-to-date ladies’ fashion with high quality standards and excellent fit.
The large number of satisfied customers is the best evidence for the success of the individual and always neat SOMMERMANN style.

Since 1994, we have been using cutters in our production. When we had a replacement investment for the cutting department on our agenda in 2009, our service partner, drew our attention to the Australian cutter manufacturer. After extensive test cuts with different hard-to-handle materials, we were impressed by the high quality of the cuts. Knowing that the service would be in the close-by hands of the team, we decided to invest in a Pathfinder cutter.

The installation and integration of both software and hardware into our existing CAD and laying system worked out well. Now, after one and a half years of using the Pathfinder, we can already look back on major increases in quality and productivity. Another argument in favour of purchasing the Pathfinder was the predicted very low running costs for maintenance and wearing parts. Even today, they clearly undercut the predictions, bringing about savings of approximately 80% compared to the running costs of the predecessor machine.

On account of our positive experiences, we can highly recommend Pathfinder to others.
