Switzerland-based flat knitting machine manufacturer, Steiger textil, has launched a new facility called ‘Stitch Lab’, for experts in knitting and programming to work together with clients on developing their future applications.

Using the Stitch Lab, Steiger technicians and their partners will be able to work together via the machine’s 3D simulation software Model Plus (M+). The software will simulate the creation of the stitches, row by row with the use of the virtual knitting machine function. The programmer can then detect any potential knitting problems early in the creation of the garment and, using the appropriate Wizard, will be able to navigate into the product to inspect the sample in closer detail.

Explaining the features of Stitch Lab, Pierre-Yves Bonvin, CEO of Steiger, commented, “The Stitch Lab is a very powerful tool to develop the future applications using which Steiger will develop 3D articles for knitwear, for medical applications and for the composite material.”

According to Steiger, Stitch Lab can be used on all the latest and major knitting machines of the company such as: Libra 3.130, New Aries 3.130, C2.185 SCP, Taurus 2.170 XP and Antares 3.130.

“We will use all our expertise and innovation capability to create new patterns and 3D parts using any kind of yarns. In the Stitch Lab we have put together the best experts, the best machines and the best framework to boost the innovation,” concluded Bonvin.
