Steiger Participations, a renowned flat knitting machine manufacturer and technology leader for industrial knitting machines used for technical and medical products, has launched a new structure called Stitch Lab, dedicated to the innovation where experts in knitting and programming will work together with the clients to develop their future applications.

In a dedicated area, the full range of the most advanced Steiger’s machines will be available as the Libra 3.130, the New Aries 3.130, and the C2.185 SCP. The Taurus 2.170 XP, first 3D flat knitting machine which offers the possibility to knit complete garment knitwear with Intarsia patterns, will demonstrate its extraordinary capabilities. The Taurus 2.170 XP machine contains two innovations patented by Steiger: the compound needle and the storage punch. The unique construction allows complete garment knitting with intarsia, multilayer knitting, and complex weft knitting. The Antares 3.130 contains the recognised strengths that Steiger’s equipment offers, such as the take-down and the open carriage. New features such as the independent motorised clamps, the vertically and horizontally motorised yarn-guides have been developed, making the equipment user-friendly, and easy to use.

In the Stitch Lab, Steiger technicians and their partners will work in a very friendly environment to discover the machine’s 3D simulation software MODEL+. Thanks to the virtual knitting machine function, the creation of the stitches, row by row is simulated. The programmer can detect potential knitting problems early in the creation of the garment. He can navigate into the product to inspect his sample. A wizard composed of three simple steps helps the user to easily program his knitwear.

Pierre-Yves Bonvin, CEO of Steiger said, “The Stitch Lab is a very powerful tool to develop the future applications. In the Stitch Lab, Steiger will develop 3D articles for knitwear, for medical applications and for the composite material. We will use all our expertise and innovation capability to create new patterns and 3D parts using any kind of yarns. In the Stitch Lab, we have put together the best experts, the best machines and the best framework to boost the innovation.” (GK)
