Tukatech, Inc., a Los Angeles based provider of apparel industry software solutions, announced a successful software implementation as part of a new partnership with US garment manufacturer and retailer American Apparel.
American Apparel is utilizing TUKAcad, Tukatech’s apparel CAD software, for product development and manufacturing. Tukatech also provided American Apparel with manufacturing consulting to increase production and meet the demand of their 280 retail stores and e-commerce site. The company is now looking to further partner with Tukatech in the areas of 3D virtual prototyping and 3D design.
American Apparel is also utilizing SMARTmark, a TUKAcad module, for marker making processes. SMARTmark works automatically to produce markers in minutes that minimize the use of fabric. The software can also queue many markers at a time, do ratio or single-size markers, use bump lines to control markers on fabric with shade variations, calculate yields, create sharable reports, and much more.
American Apparel produces over 1 million garments a week. However, with increasing demand here and abroad, in stores and on the web, there was a need to increase production efficiency.
