Process optimization from the first stitch to the final step – Giesswein relies on Koppermann


The traditional and the modern – only a few companies are able to walk this tightrope as successfully as the felt and knitwear specialist Giesswein from Brixlegg in Austria.

The corporation has relied for many years on the most sophisticated knitting machines to offer customers who expect tradition combined with quality perfect cuts, the latest color combinations and the very best comfort in wear.

Giesswein uses Koppermann’s design solution in its creative collection development to ensure it will also be able to react fast and directly to the constantly changing market demands in the future.

With Koppermann, the innovative knitwear designs of the creative team can be converted directly and in a fully automated process into detailed stitch patterns which can be read directly into the sophisticated knitting machines thanks to the unique Koppermann portal technology.

Further impressive features include the exhaustive range of coloring options, specific color cards and the simple and user-friendly operation.

We were particularly impressed by the simple data transfer of the stitch pattern created using Koppermann into our in-house production,” Markus Giesswein, Sales Manager at Giesswein, reports. “In addition, the fast and intuitive recoloring of drafts with the Koppermann process allows a very high increase in efficiency in daily use.
