  • k.innovation CREATE PLUS:

    MODERN PATTERNING

    k.innovation CREATE PLUS is the new dimension in flat knitting machinery programming. Combining a fully featured advanced programming system with an easy to learn user interface will greatly enhance your knitting capabilities. Realistic fabric view, intelligent tools, open interfaces and the connection to the KM.ON cloud embed CREATE PLUS perfectly into the upcoming digital workflows. The integration of a grading system, a full set of highly customizable modules and the ability to process the entire knitting order in few steps will dramatically reduce your time to market.

  • k.innovation CREATE BASIC:

    MODERN PATTERNING
    for STOLL BASIC Machines

    The new member in the k.innovation CREATE family: the pattern software k.innovation CREATE BASIC
    The CREATE BASIC has the same functionality as the CREATE PLUS pattern software but limited to generate knitting programs for the BMS 52 ki and CMS 502 ki/HP.

  • k.innovation CREATE DESIGN:

    DIGITAL KNITWEAR DESIGN DEVELOPMENT

    Digitize your knit designs through the brand new design software k.innovation CREATE DESIGN for flat knitted products by STOL L and KM.ON. CREATE DESIGN is a powerful tool that connects knitwear design with 3D product development and knit production. With features like shape creation and grading, digital stitch and yarn development and data export for simulation in any 3D software, CREATE DESIGN brings benefits not only for knitwear designers, but also for pattern makers, knitwear producers and 3D artists.

  • APM:

    automatic production
    without manual intervention

    Knitting production without manual intervention – with PPS and APM, this becomes possible!
    After a production order has been sent and loaded automatically to a machine equipped with Auto Production Mode (APM) through PPS, the production process starts without any manual intervention. After completion, the next ticket is loaded and started automatically. Optionally, a routing slip with actual production information and feedback from the operator can be printed automatically. The content can be arranged individually.
    The completed ticket is picked up from PPS so that ERP can track the completion. The production state can be monitored with database requests as well.

  • EKC – EXTENDED KNIT CONTROL:

    optimized operation procedure
    for pattern, installation and
    production of orders

    The flat-knitting machines of the Enhanced Knit Control (EKC) generation are the user-friendliest knitting machines in the market. They offer different skills to optimize and enhance the whole production process. EKC and PPS are designed to build up the most powerful and effective production plants for knitting machines. The seamless integration of EKC and PPS results in very high productivity and makes your daily business easier. With the order-orientated and task-related graphical user interface, everyone can produce complicated knitted products after just a short training period. With the newly developed guided troubleshooting, everyone can handle every situation which occurs in production. By using these new features, the whole production process will be optimized and enhanced. Your productivity will increase and costs decrease.

  • Artwork:

    designer’s aid in Adobe® Photoshop®

    With STOLL-artwork® we contribute to a better communication between designers and technicians. There are several factors which lead to misunderstandings and which we will address with STOLL-artwork®:
    - Designers have a basic understanding of knitting techniques, but often no programming experience.
    - Knitting technicians follow technical aspects and shall not make design decisions
    - The physical distance between design departments and production facilities
    STOLL-artwork® optimizes the pattern development process thanks to reduced time delays and a sophisticated assistance of the designers during their artwork creation. This includes e. g. correct specifications for the corresponding knitting technique and an integrated safety net which prevents technicians from deforming the design.

  • autocreate®:

    faster and more efficient
    machine program creation

    A powerful framework to automate pattern creation for mass customization or production-of-one – this is STOLL autocreate®. Using the power of color arrangements, it allows simple bitmaps to be provided along with a formalized "receipt" that controls their processing in CREATE PLUS or M1plus® without human interaction. Get ready for IoT technology and production on demand!

  • Sintral Crypto Tool:

    protection of
    intellectual property

    A knitting program represents a significant economic value for the issuer since it contains specific company know-how about applications, collections or fashion trends. Giving away unprotected knitting programs exposes the issuer to the following kinds of plagiarism threats:
    • Unauthorized people may reproduce the fabric as a 1:1 copy on any similar STOLL knitting machine
    • Unauthorized people may steal the know-how by reading the program code

    By protecting knitting programs with the STOLL Sintral Crypto Tool, these threats can be avoided substantially.

  • PPS – PRODUCTION PLANNING TOOL:

    efficient production
    control by PPS

    STOLL PPS is a central platform and production planning tool, which enables the customer to control, plan and optimize its production – for increased productivity and greater competitiveness. It is suitable for agile and innovative companies. Response times and on-time delivery are improved and lead times are reduced which is vital in today's fast-changing markets. Quality is increased and waste reduced. The high degree of automation allows new business models.

    It is a Web-based solution with a modern and user-friendly interface, which can be operated from any browser, including mobile devices such as tablets or smartphones.
    PPS gives you a quick and transparent overview of all processes. Thanks to the high integration of knitting machines and terminal devices, all weak points can be easily identified and analyzed. Maintenance becomes much easier and the central configurable access control prevents misuse at machines.
