Stoll, Germany’s leading flat knitting machine manufacturer, will for the first time present the new knitelligence machine generation at this year’s ITMA 2019, which takes place in Barcelona, from 20-26 June.

Stoll will also present a production process involving knitelligence and Stoll-knitrobotic.

Future of digitisation

“In addition to the commercially available yarns, Stoll also worked with yarns that are unusual for the knitting industry – representing a solution to a major challenge of flat knitting technology,” the company says. “These yarns include used plastic bags, silver foil, and jute bags that have been utilised to knit luxury products – the inspiration here being the concept of up-cycling.”

Technical textiles

In the area of technical textiles, Stoll showcases the steady market growth of technical applications and implementations. Stoll will present various demanding technical applications on the CMS 530 ki W in the gauge E7.2. Other technical applications to be presented by Stoll at the exhibition will include TT home, TT med, TT mobility, TT e-tex and TT sport.

knit and wear

In field of knit and wear, the company will present the ADF 830-24 ki W knit and wear and CMS 830 ki knit and wear. “The ADF 830-24 ki W knit and wear offers even greater flexibility in colouring and patterning – providing greater productivity. This ADF offers the entire spectrum of technology and functionality in the knit and wear range,” the company reports.

The CMS 830 ki machine is a high-performance, basic machine with an excellent price-performance ratio, according to the manufacturer: “In addition to standard techniques, even demanding patterns such as the french shoulder is now possible.” In addition to the enhancement of the intarsia capability, the CMS 830 ki knit and wear offers the gauge E9.2. This machine is the economical entry-level machine for flexible use, both for conventional production and knit and wear divisions.
