November 12, 2018 - China

STOLL, a leading manufacturer of flat knitting machines, displayed latest innovations and developments at the ITMA Asia + CITME 2018 expo, which was held from October 15-19, 2018, in Shanghai, China. The booth was entirely dedicated to knitelligence, STOLL’s new software solution and a highlight from the ever-growing field of Stoll software solutions.

Stoll’s knitelligence is a modular system that combines all of Stoll’s software solutions under one platform that covers the entire value chain of flat-knit production. From design to production, knitelligence can be easily integrated into existing customer processes. The topic ‘networking and digitalisation of processes’ was the focus and attracted numerous visitors to the Stoll exhibition booth. In order to illustrate the new software solutions in the best possible way, there was a live demonstration that impressively illustrated the workflow of knitelligence. Visitors were able to edit their own images and motifs in the Photoshop plug-in Stoll-artwork and convert them directly into a knitting programme via Stoll-autocreate and knit them on site, Stoll said in a media statement.

In the area of knitting machine technology, Stoll presented the new ADF 830-24 W knit & wear with the multi gauge E7.2 to the public for the first time. At the booth a knit & wear pullover with plating technique was presented. Also from the area of knit & wear was presented the new CMS 830 HP knit & wear in multi gauge E9.2. Stoll’s technology convinces with other exhibition machines such as the CMS 330 HP W TT sport, CMS 502 HP + Bc, and ADF 530-24.

In addition, Stoll has brought back some new innovations from the areas of fashion & technology and technical textiles. With regard to technical textiles Stoll showed the ever-growing market for applications and technical implementations. Stoll demonstrated the performance range of Stoll’s CMS 330 HP W TT sport multi gauge E7.2 by knitting shoe uppers and various technical applications. Other technical textiles applications shown include medical designs, upholstery solutions, conductive garments, industrial uses, and so on.

In the fashion & technology area, Stoll introduced the Adobe Photoshop extension Stoll-artwork for the creation and production process. This innovation was offered a lot of space at the exhibition booth and impressively presented to the visitors in a live demonstration. In addition to the new Adobe Photoshop extension Stoll-artwork, fashion & technology presented the latest trend collection, digital knits. Impressive knitting patterns were also created, thanks to Stoll-artwork.

Besides all these innovations and improvements, Stoll offered visitors another highlight. Four seminars in the area of technical textiles, digital knits, Stoll-artwork, and knit & wear were available for those interested. (GK)
