Newlast’s first contribution to shoe factory has been a kit for the fast design of collection prototypes.
Allowing the shoemaker to move the Model department inside the factory, it is essential to reach two very important competitive advantages:
- Deep reduction of sensitive data and important information loss;
- Reduction of the release time of prototype lasts of each collection. As a matter of fact, each model is revised and modified a number of times to reach the right balance between the designer’s creative idea and the comfort of the shoe.
As soon as the new collection is approved, the lasts are digitally sent to the shoe last makers, where the real production begins. In this particular phase, thanks to the Newlast standard, it is possible to make each data in the .FRV file readable by all machines in the production line.
Newlast not only focuses on the last: understanding the importance for the shoemaker to have information about the shape of customers’ feet, both for customized shoes and for a general comfort increase, Newlast developed together with a Swiss company a high precision 3D system: the Right Shoes platform.
Right Shoes is a high technology system, for the collection, analysis and 3D data parametrization of customers’ feet. It gives the possibility to the Brand to have a series of useful information for the optimization of shoes production, based on demographic and social variables, which have not been considered as relevant until now.
The platform can also suggest to each customer of the Brand the ideal size of the chosen shoe model.
