Leading flat knitting machine manufacturer Stoll exhibited at Techtextil and Texprocess, the leading international trade exhibitions for technical textiles and nonwovens, as well as textile processing, which took place in Frankfurt last week.

From 14-17 May, international exhibitors showed the entire spectrum of technical textiles, functional clothing textiles and textile technologies at Techtextil. Stoll, Myant and Robert Bosch exhibited at a joint booth during the show and presented their latest developments and innovations.

Stoll exhibited a 3D flat-knitted, seamless glove, made together with Robert Bosch. For this innovation, Stoll and Bosch won the Techtextil Innovation Awards 2019 in the New Technology category.

Award-winning glove

Made of sensor yarn, the award-winning glove provides the wearer with sensory and control functions on all fingers – allowing the wearer to have operating interfaces for man-machine interaction, movement control in relation to augmented and virtual reality application, or rehabilitative purposes for healthcare. This innovative new product is not only functional, but comfortable for the wearer.

Parallel to Techtextil, Stoll also had booth representation at Texprocess, in cooperation with DITF (German Institute for Textile and Fiber Research). Stoll and DITF presented a completely digitised workflow, as part of a microfactory. The integration of Stoll’s new software solution knitelligence and DITF’s 3D processing tool enables efficient automation for design development and production.

Advanced solutions

“By participating in Techtextil and Texprocess, Stoll was able to present itself as a successful manufacturer of flat knitting machines and an advanced developer of the textiles industry,” the company summarised.
