KSL introduces compact CNC stitching machine at ITMA
Aug '11
During the ITMA 2011, taking place in Barcelona, Spain KSL introduces for the first time a CNC controlled stitching machine with a sewing field of 300 x 300 mm.

The unit offers a compact design and realizes highest seam quality re-quirements also for applications in small areas. KSL engineered and suc-cessfully realized the orientation of the stitching head towards the seam flow, tangential stitching with constantly even seam quality in all stitch-ing directions. The produced seam offers the same quality as a manu-ally, time- and cost consuming, produced part but with incomparably higher reproducibility and minor reject rates.

Target customers for this unit are manufacturers of top-quality leather goods such as handbags, watch straps and other goods made of genuine leather or leather substitutes like Alcantara. Up to date such parts have been manufactured either manually or with smallfield CNC-units with stationary stitching head.

Putting the 360° rotating stitching head into operation absolutely repro-ducible results are achieved even for complex seam geometries. Auto-matic program recognition minimizes operator involvement. Upon re-quest options such as generating of long thread ends on the parts back side or tailored software to monitor the stitching process are available.

Little space requirement, absolute reproducibility with ideal outstanding cost-performance-ratio - those are the outstanding features of the KL CNC stitching unit with rotating sewing head for small field application.

KSL Keilmann Sondermaschinenbau engineers and manufactures innova-tive 2- and 3-dimensional sewing systems and automation solutions for processing of technical textiles, in particular for the fields of airbag, au-tomotive textiles (upholstery, convertible tops, interior), mattresses, textile filter products, composites and safety technique.

As genuine manufacturer of special purpose machines KSL works in close dialog with the customer and realises tailor made but extremely eco-nomic manufacture units. The medium sized family-owned business em-ploys currently about 100 staff members. With an export ratio of about 90% KSL operates successfully at the international market.
