Before proceeding to cutting operations – laser or mechanical ones- essential for the car interior
components, there are some fundamental preliminary operations which are carefully done every
time in Gastaldi Automotive’s workshops.
It starts from the selection and the trial of the best example leather, result of a preliminary
deepened knowledge of the product but also of a manual inspection by the personal in charge,
specifically assembled and supported by many years of experience in this field.
Progressively, leather is transferred and laid down on a high technology machine for the cutting.
The operator identifies the flawless areas and he realizes on it the projection of the necessary
components models, occupying of the correct positioning of the outlines.
The cutting takes place automatically, with a blade.
A further visual check, at the end, allows to eliminate from the production process any parts that
show breakages or non-conformities with respect to the reference sample
If the leather, at the end of this first process, is too thick, it is possible to reduce its thickness
through the so-called “splitting” of the leather.
