Rus Savitar company, owner of the Casa Rusu brand was established in 1994. Up to 2004 it was the largest furniture importer of the Romanian market and in 2005 it started its own production. Development of the company at a constant, 20% rate per annum allows the company to constantly broaden its retail network. Thanks to their own stores, warehouses and constantly opened retail outlets for own products and direct contact with the customer they are able to eliminate, the superfluous- in their opinion, intermediaries. The company develops constantly, invests in new technologies, increases production. It’s one of the unquestioned leaders of the Romanian matket.
In 2013 and impressive installation took place in the factory manufacturing Rus Savitar upholstered furniture – one of the leaders of Romanian manufacturers. The cutting shop was equipped with three UNICUT machines for automated fabric cutting, two automatic machines for sizing fabrics and cutting tables with belt conveyor and air cushion systems for precise transport of fed material (a total of over 80 meters of tables). Additionally the so called Machine Moving System (MMS) was installed, that allow the machine to move between the cutting tables set parallel, which allows for maximum use of the potential of the cutting works. The whole UNICUT technological line for automated cutting room was adjusted to the manufacturing needs of the Rus Savitar company. All machines and devices are fully compatible, and the introduced MMS system gives the customer many possibilities for operation of machines and devices with use of different upholstery materials, and thus full flexibility in completion of production tasks.
The businesspeople are especially concerned with the attractiveness and competitiveness of their products, and modernization and automation of works allow just for that. The manufacturers still frequently fear the high investment costs, still it turns out that the costs can be returned within a year, a phenomenon experienced by one of the largest upholstered furniture manufacturers in Romania, who choose UNICUT machines. According to reports of the production manager, prior to implementation of the modernization process Rus Savitar used just one cutting table, and the production was performed manually. The technological leap was immense – it both reduced the production costs and raised the quality of work, lowering the amount of required human labor. “It seems that we have changed everything. Thanks to use of new UNICUT technologies and computerization that makes work easier we efficiently lowered the manufacturing costs, minimized the loss of material and optimized all processes” – says Dymitru Laurentiu Diaconu, technical manager at Rus Savitar. “This was a good purchase” – he adds. The UNICUT 3C50 cutter, designed with upholstered furniture industry in mind, was a particularly good choice.
