GERMANY: STOLL LAUNCHES KNITTING NETWORKING SYSTEM ‘KNITELLIGENCE’ SOFTWARE
Stoll, German pioneer in flat knitting machinery manufacturing, has unveiled a new networking solution ‘ Knitelligence’ to enhance efficiency of the entire knitting value chain.
Knitelligence comprises of different software solutions, from IoT to production process, which will enable the users to access the engineered future of knitting, claims Stoll.
Stoll aims to automate pattern making, grading and knitting operations as well as optimize production management processes with this new system.
Knitelligence has been designed in a way that it brings together the flagship solutions such as M1plus ( Pattern Making Software), GKS ( Pattern Grading Software), PPS ( Production Planning Solution), APM (Automatic Production, eliminating human intervention), EKC ( Extended Knit Control System) and Autocreate (Automatic Software for Mass Customization) on one platform.
The integration of all the software solutions in Knitelligence will help the knitwear manufacturers to achieve error-free output as it allows digitization of each and every stage of knitting value chain. Adding on, Stoll claims that, with Knitelligence, the customers will experience substantial advantages such as smoother workflow; increase in productivity; adherence to process schedule; improvement in response time; real-time transparency; and reduction in cost. Therefore, the manufacturers will be able to penetrate new markets with improved operations. Andreas Schellhammer, CEO, Stoll, believes that the customers can streamline their knitting chain processes in much more efficient way with the completely new
IoT technology of the Knitelligence system. “Our aim is to enable our customers to respond flexibly to the market requirements. Knitelligence is an important step for this as Stoll continues to set standards in the age of digitization; and with Knitelligence, the company is creating substantial added value for its customers, highly efficient flat-knitting production through the optimization and networking of individual production steps,” avers Schellhammer.
