Until 1978, shoe and leather goods components were cut manually; needing highly skilled workers, producing small quantities due to manual production; leading to small outputs and mostly inaccurate end-products, causing dimensional inaccuracies in production.
For shoes and leather goods, if the cutting of the components is not 100% accurate; the subsequent processes like skiving, edge gluing; edge folding and even final stitching would not be even and will give a distorted look of presentation.
Realizing that neither quality consistency, nor large production base was possible for the shoe and leather goods industry, HARMAN brought to India, for the first time, machinery and know-how from an Austrian company, to produce CUTTING DIES in India. These dies were inexpensive and economical to the extent that after discarding a particular model of shoes or leather goods, these could be thrown away as junk. Earlier the dies were being imported by some of the large exporters.
