Unique yarn carrier technology knitting machine from Stoll
Oct '13
Once again, flat knitting machine manufacturer STOLL has set new standards in the knitting world.

Due to the unique yarn carrier technology, the newly launched CMS ADF-3 knitting machine offers many features for innovative knitting when it comes to structural technique and color combinations. It combines all previously known yarn carrier technologies with its newly expanded functions to create a powerful flat knitting machine.

The CMS ADF-3 is multitalented. For designers, it offers outstanding options for turning creative ideas into reality. It has the ability to produce stunning, never-before-seen patterns.

For the company H. Stoll GmbH & Co. KG, the CMS ADF-3 represents a milestone in the evolution of the STOLL knitting machine.

“With the CMS ADF-3, we have made a decisive step forward in the future of knitting,” explained Heinz-Peter Stoll, CEO of H. Stoll GmbH & Co. KG. “For knitting machine manufacturers, the market remains exciting but tense.”

The heavy concentration of supply markets in the Asia Pacific rim and the enormous order fluctuations represent a challenge for the company that Heinz-Peter Stoll faces with complete confidence, mainly because the company is continuously re-evaluating its direction. “We have no problem competing fiercely with other companies in our market.” With our innovative drive and focus on service, we will stay true to our motto “’quality first,’” added Heinz-Peter Stoll.

The CMS ADF-3 will hold its own in the intensely competitive market mainly due to its broad area of application. The CMS ADF-3 is setting new standards with its 16 rails, equipped with two yarn carriers each. Knitting functions from previous machine generations have come together in the CMS ADF-3, including, of course, multi-gauge and flexible gauge features.

This has resulted simple handling and faster programming. Our universal yarn carriers are designed for use in any knitting application. The CMS ADF-3 covers a gauge range from E 10 to E 18, including multi-gauge gauges.

What makes the CMS ADF-3 so versatile is its’ advanced yarn carrier technology, which is based on 32 motorized yarn carriers. They move independently from the carriage and can position themselves vertically or horizontally. Positioning is controlled by the pattern program. This configuration opens up almost unlimited possibilities for the user regarding patterns and color combinations.

When it comes to plating, the benefits of flexible yarn carriers are particularly noticeable as its inverse plating allows you to create any conceivable color combination. With intarsia plating, color nuances can be added to individual or multiple pattern areas. The CMS ADF-3 enables color fields of less than 1" to be knitted.

The efficiency of the CMS ADF-3 knows no equal. This is a result of more efficient knitting sequences that reduce the stroke. Faster retrofitting times when changing patterns lower the machine's downtimes considerably.

Even its ergonomic improvements have generated several benefits for the user, who is sure to appreciate them when working with the machine on a daily basis. These include the sliding bobbin board, the V-shaped yarn control (installed in a low position to ensure that the yarn carriers don't cross each other) as well as many other features.

Overview of the machine's technical details:

- Yarn carrier staggering distance: 2"
- Color field distance: 0.6"
- Direct yarn feed
- 2 x 16 individual clamping and cutting devices
- Width of the needle bed: 50"
- System distance: 5"
- 3 knitting systems.
