Andreas Schellhammer, Head of Business Unit, STOLL, this new model gives an
example of how complex things can be manufactured with efficiency and
sustainability, by working together. The two partners are confident that they
will bring specialism at every stage of the industryâ€™s supply chain.
solution has been created by the two partners to manufacture innovative shoe
models using a highly efficient process. Firstly seamless, 3D-knitted uppers
are produced, then they are hardened and then they are attached to dual-layer
sole constructions. This reduces lead time in production and allows machine
setting to be adjusted so that optimum quality product is generated without any
extra investment. STOLL uses flat weft knitting while DESMA uses direct sole
attachment technology. This results in the creation of new products and mass
production. The time-consuming production steps are eliminated using the new
method. Also, in this sustainable innovation method, there is no scrap or
waste. Also, it is more comfortable to wear as the shape is a perfect fit.
Lastly using the flat weft knitting machine and efficient sole attachment
process, high-performance footwear can be manufactured with customized designs.
The ADF 330-32
ki BcW flat weft knitting machine is used to manufacture the footwear. The
machine has many intelligent components that offer automatic, efficient, and
fully digitalized production processes. A wide range of knitwear looks can be
incorporated using STOLL-ikat platingÂ® and STOLL-weave-inÂ®
Technology. The process also speeds up as the upper component is directly
turned into fabric. The multi-gauge E 9.2 can be used to expand the design potential
in the textile shoe upper market. The fabrics created using this process
surprise the designers as the detailing is fine and the surface are non-porous.
The textures of the stitching in the fabric are also unique. the ADF 330-32 ki
BcW, E 9.2 is extremely appealing in the shoe industry due to its design
potential and benefits for the making up process. The machine is also demanded
for it 36″ working width and optimised dimensions.
