A new offering in the form of defined innovation packages has recently been launched by Stoll. They are tailored to the respective target groups and enable customers to benefit more quickly.
The development team from Stoll, a Business Unit of the Karl Mayer Group, Obertshausen/Germany, with several hundred engineers and technicians in the fields of electronics, software, patterning, and design, provides solutions that can be easily integrated into existing Stoll machines.
Innovation package Number 1 is aimed explicitly at knitters who focus on technical textiles. The spotlight is on convenience and process acceleration. Simple network configuration, expansion of the number of NP values, extended functionality when loading and saving the pattern and also improvement of handling in connection with Production Management from PPS are just some of the features of the package.
Still in the pipeline, included in the Number 2 innovation package, are improvements for the maintenance area – regarding the use of lubricants and the maintenance intervals (predictive maintenance) – as well as optimizations in terms of sustainability, for example when it comes to reducing consumption of oil and increasing reliability. These solutions will be suitable for all machine types and applications.
The focus here is on improvements in belt take-down, the import and export of data and support for additional storage feeders. A physical improvement in handling is promised by the new lighting including mirror directly on the machine.
In addition, the development teams are currently working on optimizing various knitting qualities and increasing user-friendliness.
