SHIMA SEIKI to Exhibit at Meet the ManufacturerPress


Leading computerized knitting machine manufacturer SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD. of Wakayama, Japan, together with its European subsidiary SHIMA SEIKI EUROPE, LTD., will participate in the Meet the Manufacturer exhibition in London, England this month. On display will be the company's latest offering in WHOLEGARMENT knitting technology.

Meet the Manufacturer is a trade show and sourcing event showcasing British manufacturing of clothing, textiles and leathergoods. It features clothing manufacturers, textile mills, makers of leathergoods and suppliers to the UK apparel and textile industries. SHIMA SEIKI will participate as textile machinery supplier by demonstrating its seam-free WHOLEGARMENT knitting technology.

On display will be SHIMA SEIKI's flagship MACH2XS WHOLEGARMENT knitting machine that features the company's original SlideNeedle on four needle beds as well as the company's patented spring loaded full-time sinker system. It can knit beautifully shaped, high-quality WHOLEGARMENT knitwear with very high efficiency while minimising dependence upon labour-intensive sewing and linking, spearheading the movement to bring knit production back on-shore to traditional production centres in the UK.

Also on display is the latest version of SHIMA SEIKI's SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system. At the core of the company's "Total Fashion System" concept, APEX3 provides comprehensive support throughout the apparel supply chain, integrating production into one smooth and efficient workflow from yarn development, product planning and design to production and even sales promotion. Especially effective is APEX3's capability to improve on the design and evaluation process with Virtual Sampling. Photo-realistic simulation capability allows Virtual Sampling to minimise costly time- and resource-consuming sample making while enhancing presentation quality.
