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 the 2nd edition of 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. later this month. 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.

On display will be two versions of its flagship MACH2XS WHOLEGARMENT knitting machine in differing gauges and knitting widths. Featuring SHIMA SEIKI's original SlideNeedle on four needle beds and spring-type moveable sinkers, MACH2XS offers high efficiency and stability with extended 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 SRY183LP computerized flat knitting machine features loop presser beds with inlay capability, offering new and exciting possibilities in knit-weave hybrid textiles. 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.

The SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system, positioned at the core of SHIMA SEIKI's "Total Fashion System" concept, provides comprehensive support of the knit supply chain by integrating 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.

SHIMA SEIKI will also exhibit knitwear produced on its latest line of computerized knitting machines, including revolutionary seam-free WHOLEGARMENT knitwear that features superior fit, comfort and draping characteristics.
