Sole placement – Case #497

August 12, 2016


“A picture is worth a thousand words”. Practical solutions to problems encountered in the manufacturing process that demonstrate how we assist our customers’ factories to produce Right from the Start TM.

Problem: the factory was using the sole for marking its placement on the upper, but the marking was not consistent due to poor handling of the sole.

Impactiva solution: we got the factory to make a vacuum pattern with notches on the sides, toe and heel, which is more convenient for the artisan to align on the lasted upper in the correct position in order to mark the sole placement consistently.
