The quest for cheaper labour costs takes another leap forward. TUKAWEB now offers Pattern Making, Grading and Marker Making to users of any CAD systems through the World Wide Web. All users can send their manual or CAD data and receive the Patterns in any desired CAD language. The turn around time for delivering patterns is a maximum of 24 hours. “Soon we will have 450 pattern makers working three shifts in our Asian Headquarters in New Delhi and we plan to add more operators in China and Vietnam within the next 12 months” announces Peter Tredwin, COO TUKAweb, Inc. The power of TUKAWEB and TUKACENTERS became evident when a user started getting graded patterns and markers of NEW blouses and shirts delivered in printed format to the other side of the Globe within 24 hours, at a cost of less than $50. “The same would cost us over $400 and four to five days” comments a very large importer in USA.
Patterns or Marker data is now available anytime, in any format, anywhere in the world for ALL CAD SYSTEM users. Whereas ASTM, AAMA and DXF had frustrated the users, TUKAweb is now delivering patterns through the Internet, in any desired CAD language. Conversions from one CAD file format to another are done at a very low price. The cost of typical services for Data conversion start at $10 and take a maximum of 12 hours. This is compared to a cost of hundreds of Dollars in Courier charges for Patterns that arrive wrinkled in FIVE days or more. More than 60 Gerber, Lectra, Investronica and Assyst users from 16 countries have already registered as TUKAweb customers and become users in the first 13 days. Over 700 files have been converted in the same period. “This is a real blessing! It is reducing our cycle time, saving us money and we are able to give quality patterns to our vendors,” says Bill Tolcher, Vice President Stony Apparel, and Great Escape.
“We are constantly trying to find ways to reduce the cycle time and cost by providing these services via internet.” says Ram Sareen, CEO, TUKAweb, Inc. A new addition to the TUKAweb family of services is 3-D Modeling. Now it is possible to e-mail pattern pieces along with a swatch of fabric. The pattern pieces will be “sewn electronically” onto a 3-D model, using the fabric provided by the user. (Model proportions or Body Scan provided by user). Any and all adjustments to the garment can be made through TUKAweb and reviewed by the customer via the Internet. This allows the customer to eliminate the need for numerous real samples of the same style. To join, please visit www.TUKAWEB.com
