CADT Software and Drafting, established in 1987 near Barcelona, designs and manufactures software and computer programs for lace specialists. The company, which employs 15 people, was started by Josep Queraltó and a team of experts in computer science and textile design and analysis.
In March 2017 the Software Department introduced SAPO Software 6.2, the latest generation of SAPO CAD/CAM which is highly acclaimed by designers and draughtspeople. The system is adapted to Leavers, Raschel, Jacquardtronic, and Textronic machines and it multiplies creative possibilities, guarantees high quality definition, and saves significant time. The company also develops other programs to increase performance on Raschel and Leavers machines. CADT Software and Drafting covers the entire process, from digitalisation to integrating the machine file into equipment.
The Drafting Department creates and finalises drawings and sketches for different types of machines. CADT works closely with clients and uses its latest software to give them exclusive designs for underwear, prêt-à-porter and home-deco.
Latest innovations: The Lace Designer Kit, a kit with all the necessary tools to develop the lace design work and the LDST 2.1 Loading Station, a program for using the latest technologies with older Raschel machines.
