The Standardisation Internationale de Tricotage (SIT)/Groupe Superba produced a number of knitting machines that all shared the "same" electronic needle bed. The difference was the way the machines were programmed. The knitting machines include S47 (pressure pad), S44 (peg board), S48 (light scanner), MT624 and System 9000.

We have developed the SuperbaKnit hardware and software that provides the patterning functionality for electronic Superba, Singer, White and Phildar knitting machines. Unique patterning can now be done over the full width of the needle bed. With the SuperbaKnit you can knit existing patterns without the need of any additional software. You can create your own patterns with a graphics package of your choice.
