SHIMA SEIKI to Hold Global 3D Knitting Seminar & Workshop in LAPress


SHIMA SEIKI U.S.A. INC., the U.S. subsidiary of leading Japanese flat knitting machine manufacturer SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD., will hold its "Global 3D Knitting Seminar & Workshop" at its Showroom and Training Center situated in the California Market Center in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A. On display will be the cutting edge in computerized flat knitting technology, represented by the latest WHOLEGARMENT machines, computerized flat knitting machines, and 3D apparel design system, as shown by SHIMA SEIKI at the International Textile Machinery (ITMA 2015) exhibition to industry acclaim last year.

On display will be a pair of flagship MACH2XS WHOLEGARMENT knitting machines in differing gauges and knitting widths. Featuring SHIMA SEIKI's original SlideNeedle on four needle beds and spring-loaded moveable sinkers, MACH2XS offers higher efficiency and greater stability with expanded patterning capability while knitting WHOLEGARMENT items. The compact SWG091N2 WHOLEGARMENT knitting machine offers flexible production as well as the capability for producing technical textiles for sports, medical and other industrial applications. The novel SRY123LP computerized flat knitting machine features loop presser beds with inlay capability, offering new and exciting possibilities in knit-textile hybrid fabrics as well as industrial textiles. It will be paired with the Yarn Unwinding Option, an essential tool for industrial applications that provides smooth and stable yarn feed of material that is normally difficult to feed into knitting machines, such as metallic and monofilament yarns. Conventional knitting machines such as the compact SSR112 and workhorse SIR123 machine will also be on display to demonstrate the leading edge in computerized shaped knitting technology.

Also available is the SDS-ONE APEX3 system that is at the core of the company's "Total Fashion System" concept. With comprehensive support of the knit supply chain, APEX3 integrates knit production into one smooth and efficient workflow from planning and design to machine programming, production and even sales promotion. Virtual Sampling through photo-realistic simulation minimizes the need for sample-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost from the sampling process. APEX3 also supports design and simulation in various other industries such as circular knitting, weaving, pile weaving and printing.
