STEIGER Model 7.22 Multi Language

Category: ---

STEIGER Model 7.22 Multi Language

Software to program the machines of the Gemini, Libra and Aries range.

Designed since the beginning under Windows environment and therefore totally PC compatible, this software stands since long time as a benchmark in the sector. The simplicity in the creation and use of its logic symbols really makes every user independent in the creation of his own knitting programs.

The program offers a very important base library that is being constantly updated and enlarged and that can be freely customized by the user. .

Moreover, the program analyses the pattern feasibility and displays a simulation of the knitting process, thus really helping the user to understand the stitch structures formation. .

To program intarsia patterns, an intarsia subroutine analyses and optimizes the simultaneous movements of the 32 available yarn-carriers and consequently generates the knitting program to be down loaded to the machine. .

With a few instructions, this Model version allows from a BMP format graphic design to automatically create the whole program while optimizing the production time.The left end side of the displayed window shows the original graphic pattern while the right one shows the automatically generated program. .

Despite the "full automatic" option, the user can always make changes at each level. For instance, he can directly select the yarn-carriers in a part or in the whole of the program. Or, he may also decide which knitting symbol will be selected or even change the sequence to let the yarn-carriers in and out of the intarsia areas. The final result will be in any case a file that can be read, changed or stored in the Model environment.

With the last version 7.22 , Model presents various news, such as a navigator, the possibility to establish for each row of knitting parameters for carriage speed, take-down speed, stitch.
