STOLL PEP machine can increase knitting productivity by 4%

With the introduction of the Productivity Enhancement Pack (PEP) the market leading manufacturer of flat knitting machines STOLL increases the productivity of its machines again and hence sets standards in the production of knitwear. PEP accelerates the knitting process by extremely adapted carriage speeds and improved possibilities of the yarn carrier staggering at the fabric selvedge.

The custom technologies developed are energy-saving, lasting and thus economic. All machines of the HP generation (High performance) can be ordered as of now with the innovative combination of machine control and the M1plus 5.5 version of the pattern software.

The design engineers from Reutlingen build up with PEP on the intelligent technology of the HP generation introduced in 2009 which achieves a new dimension in the shortening of knitting runtimes of up to 14 per cent. STOLL reduces the run-times by an average of 4 per cent once again with the concentration on the optimization of speed relevant processes.

For STOLL customers PEP and the reduction of the run-times means a higher yield of produced fabric pieces given the same lifespan, performance and precision of the machine. The maximum speed of the carriage movement of 1.2 m/sec while knitting and 1.5 m/sec at empty rows are often used for the positive cost/benefit ratio of PEP. The machine control buffers the energy of the carriage when breaking and delivers it again when speeding up. PEP adjusts the maximum speed to the stitch formation processes in every knitting row and hence can use the maximum possible carriage speed in every section. Run-time is saved and the knitter becomes a racing driver.

The Swabia tinkerers under the management of STOLL development manager Michael Sedlag have exhausted every chance to make use of the maximum carriage speed, to optimize the yarn carrier staggering and therefore to reduce the effective knitting time. It was default to keep the low mechanical stress of the machine and linked to this the low lubricant consumption of the STOLL machines despite a higher output. This saves not only money but also the environment.

Sedlag describes the results which PEP made possible as "speeds in the driving style of a responsive Formula 1 racer - not faster in the top speed, but more frequently at the limits and therefore better in the overall result ".

STOLL is worldwide leading manufacturer of flat knitting machines established in Reutlingen. The long-established company was founded in 1873 and has about 1,000 employees worldwide. Flat knitting machines and pattern software which are used for the production of fashionable, technical and medical textiles and which are exported successfully in 70 countries worldwide are part of the portfolio.
