A stream of innovations that anticipate and walk hand-in-hand with the latest fashion trends. Yet again, this year Aeffe Machinery amazed Simac Tanning Tech visitors with a new system called Alfa. This is what the Pasqualetti brothers, the directors of the dynamic Tuscany-based company specialised in leather decoration, had to say: “Alfa has been specifically created for designers. It’s a powerful and versatile, multi-function machine that can reproduce any idea or drawing – even designs that until recently could only be done manually. But the machine’s versatility also makes it interesting for footwear and leather goods manufacturers and tanneries, where it becomes a real asset to the production line”.
Alfa can carry out a wide variety of processing techniques on the material: cutting, punching, perforations, incisions, heat embossing and scaling. The machine is controlled by a purpose-made computer, which allows the designer to recreate any design and model they desire (even from an imported photo or external file). The various tools installed on the machine head allow for the realisation of any type of fashion finish. In fact, thanks to a white laser that does not leave unpleasant odours or burn marks on the material, Alfa enables you to create cuts, scales, holes, trims and patterns of astounding quality and precision. Furthermore, it can also work directly on uppers, bags and jackets.
The machine is available in three sizes, from 800 to 1.600 mm, and can also be equipped with a laser projector.
