STOLL partner & customer Myant Inc is currently presenting its networked textile and clothing patterns of different areas of life (work, home and play) at Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Las Vegas. Visitors are getting to imagine what life would be like in a future connected by textiles, how everyday functions can be monitored using modern technical textiles.

CES will be running until January 10. It has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for 50 years - the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace.

This time, CES is expected to present more than 4,400 exhibiting companies.

The latest generation of STOLL machines – the ADF 530 ki W – can be found in the R&D presentation sector on Myant’s booth. A demonstration of a fully automated production process which considers spontaneous design adaptations as well as the robotic insertion of hard components in premade pockets of the presented knit fabric solution is taking place at present.
