The CMS 830 ki knit and wear is a high-performance machine with an excellent price-performance ratio. In addition to the enhancement of the intarsia capability, the CMS 830 ki knit and wear offers the gauge E9.2. This machine is an economical entry-level machine for flexible use, both for conventional production and knit and wear divisions.

The ADF 830-24 ki W knit and wear offers even greater flexibility in coloring and patterning – providing greater productivity and covering the entire spectrum of technology and functionality within the knit and wear range.

The key features

Among the many demanding features of this machine, key features include reverse plating, Ikat Plating, selective plating, and intarsia plating. In addition to weft knitting, which gives the textiles a loom-like appearance, the ADF 830-24 ki W knit and wear also offers the intarsia technique within the knit and wear range – a completely new feature for a knit and wear machine.

With this new technology, users of this machine do not have to choose between only Fully Fashion patterns or knit and wear. This machine offers an immensely vast array of functions for both knitting processes.

knit and wear concepts within the new Trend Collection Materialization

For the new Trend Collection, Stoll mastered various applications in the development process. During three development phases, Stoll created a knit and wear pullover - knitted on an ADF 830-24 ki W knit and wear machine – for which the goal was to develop a knit and wear sweater with a tubular waistband, while providing a wide fit and utilizing Stoll weaving and plating technology.

The weaving and plating technique was used as the basis of a basic cut. The question was: “How and where can the topic be included?” The result: weaving technique was incorporated from the shoulder over the sleeve. This is critical as the technique is only possible with knit and wear, and this effect can only be achieved with the W-technique (Stoll-weave-in).

One of many advantages the ADF machines offer are the yarn carriers that move independently from the carriage – both horizontally and vertically. Thanks to the large working width, it is also possible to knit garments in one piece.

The new ADF 830-24 ki W knit and wear combines the entire ADF technology into one machine. The design options are limitless.
