All design concepts are made by hand in Worcester, MA in Abas' sample and pattern department. Upon approval, patterns are sent to our engineers for tool making. The image above illustrates a sample maker cutting components of a sample request.
Abas engineers make many of our own cutting and assembly tools in our factory. This allows for quicker product introductions and modification. The above image shows two engineers milling a cutting die out of a steel block.
Abas takes large leather inventory positions which allows us to convert leather into products which show real demand rather than forecasted demand. The above images show a leather expert inspecting an incoming shipment for quality, color, thickness and quantity.
Automated lining cutters allow Abas to cut lining materials efficiently, in advance, to reduce flow through time on finished goods production.
Component parts are stored in our automated storage carousel. Each component part is uniquely identified by bar code and is retrieved by scanning a production ticket that identifies the component parts needed to complete a product.
Production is controlled in the Anzani control room. Every item in production is uniquely identified by bar code and at any time our production managers can identify which processes have been completed. The impact of production schedule changes can easily be studied by making adjustments in the control room.
The Anzani production system provides overhead storage for items that are in production. Between production steps the production totes (containing a Abas item) is returned to the overhead storage and put in queue for the next production station to open. The totes are automatically delivered to the production station when available.
The image above is a view down one of the multiple production lines run by the Anzani control system. Each tote represents a unique product and is delivered automatically when a production station is free.
Each piece is hand sewn in our Worcester, MA factory by skilled stitchers.
Automated computer stitching equipment allows for fast and accurate stitching of repetitive simple stitching of components.
