SHIMA SEIKI to Hold Scotland Private ExhibitPress


Leading flat knitting machine manufacturer SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD. of Wakayama, Japan together with its U.K. subsidiary SHIMA SEIKI EUROPE, LTD. will hold a private exhibition with cooperation from the School of Textiles & Design at Heriot-Watt University in Scotland this month. On display will be the cutting edge in computerised flat knitting technology, headlined by the flagship MACH2XS WHOLEGARMENT knitting machine and SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system.

MACH2XS123, shown in 15L gauge, features the company's original SlideNeedle on four needle beds as well as the company's patented spring loaded full-time sinker system. Those features combine to provide flexible, high-quality knitting of complex fabrics while expanding the range of capability in WHOLEGARMENT knitting to unprecedented levels.

Other exhibits include the compact SWG061N2 WHOLEGARMENT knitting machine capable of flexible production of a range of knitted items from gloves, socks and other fashion accessories to specific applications such as sports, medical and industrial materials--all in 3D without seams, the novel SRY flat knitting machine with loop presser beds that can produce hybrid knit-weave fabrics as well as technical textiles, SVR touted as the benchmark standard for computerized flat knitting machines, and SIP-160F3 flatbed-type on-demand inkjet printing machine.

Demonstrations will also be performed on the SDS-ONE APEX3 design system that is at the core of the company's "Total Fashion System" concept of unifying the fashion supply chain. This is made possible due to APEX3's comprehensive support of the knit production process from planning and production to sales promotion, as well as its capability for Virtual Sampling. Photo-realistic simulation capability allows Virtual Sampling to minimise the need for actual sample-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost while increasing presentation quality in the sampling process.
