Please give a brief description of your company.

Stoll is a leading producer of flat knitting machines. As supporting software related to process optimisation has become more important, we are now offering 'Knitelligence', a complete range of different solutions tailored to various customer needs. With our experience of more than 145 years, we always strive for the best technology and for the best solutions for our customers.

What technologies were displayed ITMA 2019? Please share a few details.

We have launched a new machine generation called Knitelligence. Together with our software packages, we have made our machines more intelligent. The machines are now able to interact optimally with all Knitelligence components. The new Knitelligence machine has been developed for special requirements of the modern digital era, which include process automation, transparency, digitisation, shorter response times, shorter production cycles, networking and new business models. The machine also has some important features for running and operating the machines faster and more efficiently. Plant managers may run their machine from anywhere in the world with only an additional software component. This is only a short extract from the whole range of software products we are offering.

To how many countries do you export?

We export to around 60 countries in all continents.

Since how many years has your company been taking part in ITMA?

We began participating at ITMA nearly 36 years ago. 

What is your opinion of ITMA?

All exhibitions we participate are important. It is important for us to reach our customers even with local exhibitions in the best possible way. But for sure ITMA plays a major role. (HO)
