SHIMA SEIKI USA to Hold Los Angeles Private ExhibitionPress


SHIMA SEIKI U.S.A. INC., the U.S. subsidiary of leading Japanese flat knitting machine manufacturer SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD., will hold a private exhibition at the LA Mart creative show space in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A. in November. On display will be the cutting edge in computerized flat knitting technology, represented by the latest WHOLEGARMENT machine and design system.

The exhibition will be a showcase for the company's latest offerings in computerized flat knitting technology. The flagship MACH2X series features SHIMA SEIKI's original SlideNeedle on four needlebeds and is the only machine suited to WHOLEGARMENT knitting in all needles. The new compact SWG-N2 series WHOLEGARMENT knitting machine offers increased color capacity as well as the capability for producing industrial textiles. SRY123LP features a pair of loop presser beds mounted above a conventional V-shaped needlebed and is capable of producing unprecedented knitwear with woven textures as well as technical textiles. The Yarn Unwinding Option is an essential tool for industrial textile applications, providing smooth and stable yarn feed of material that is normally difficult to feed into knitting machines, such as metallic and monofilament yarns.

Demonstrations will also be performed on 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.

Also on display will be the latest knit samples including SHIMA SEIKI's original 2015 Spring & Summer collection. Proposals range from novel high-fashion to sustainable fast fashion, weave-knit hybrid fabrics and even technical textiles. For buyers, the latest collection of the KOTOBA brand of seam-free WHOLEGARMENT knitwear will be showcased. Featuring superior fit, comfort and draping characteristics, WHOLEGARMENT presents new solutions in knitwear manufacturing suited perfectly for domestic production in the U.S.
