The knitrobotic-kit is a functional extension of the new flat knitting machine generation. The kit expands the machines by the addition of automated robotic functions. Therefore, manual interventions before, during and after the knitting process are replaced and not longer necessary.
It is possible to connect 4 feed wheels without a transformer. Therefore, a company doesn't have to purchase an expensive transformer to be able to use up to 4 wheels.
Via the connection through a CanOpen interface, bidirectional communication and data transfer between the individual electronic feed wheels and the machine are enabled.
Furthermore, all ADF models don't need additional lateral covers to use ASCON® and friction feed wheels because they have ASCON® from above.
PPS: Extended Knit Report
The Extended Knit Report (EKR is standard in STOLL machines) within PPS helps with the acquisitions and evaluation of machine and production data. Furthermore, EKR contains data management with SNS, the STOLL Nameserver — a central storage system of specific information from the entire machine park.
Hence, EKR allows for an improved infrastructure management via central configuration, administration and remote access.
The new Remote Desktop feature allows employees to encounter tasks more flexible thanks to the integration of knitelligence®.
M1plus®: Use the intuitive touch display to remote desktop control other devices like your computer. Make changes in M1plus® directly at the machine and save time and gain flexibility. Setup changes can immediately be saved in the mdv-file.
PPS: All tasks you would normaly do at a PPS workstation can also be done at the machine itself, e.g. change a order to another machine, view which machine is knitting the same order and so on. This is time saving as there is no need to walk to a PPS workstation.
Access for everyone
The new knitelligence® machine generation will find its way into STOLLs Fully Fashion product range as well as Knit & Wear and TT.
In addition, older ADF models can be integrated into the knitelligence® system through an upgrade. The ADF 530-16 models can be upgraded to 24 yarn carriers for coarse gauges or 32 yarn carriers for fine gauges.
Individual registration via RFID
The new machine generation enables users to log in via a RFID chip. Using a RFID reader eliminates the inconvenient task of typing in the own identification.
The build in barcode and QR-code scanner helps to minimize errors during the production process:
- scan your order number
- data input into ticket fields
- customized user events
- SOP / maintenance call
Data import and export
Easily import and export data to transfer machine settings to all your machines for error minimization and fast machine configuration. For example basic machine settings to improve operations like carriage speed settings, suction device settings, differnet cleaning selections or system settings.
To use devore techniques, STOLLs knitelligence® machine generation needs just one system; the Devore-kit. This improves the flexibility and productivity because there is no need for a second system.
