SHIMA SEIKI to Hold U.K. Private ExhibitionPress


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 in London next month. On display will be the newest version of SHIMA SEIKI's 3D design system demonstrating its capability in all aspects of fashion design and production, as well as the latest WHOLEGARMENT knitwear samples.

Demonstrations will be performed on the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system that is at the core of the company's "Total Fashion System" concept. With comprehensive support of the apparel supply chain, APEX3 integrates 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 minimises the need for sample-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost from the sampling process. APEX3 supports design and simulation in such industries as flat knitting, circular knitting, weaving, pile weaving and printing.

The latest collection of seam-free WHOLEGARMENT knitwear will be on display, featuring superior fit, comfort and draping characteristics. New solutions in knitwear design, shaping techniques and material selection will be presented to provide hints to Users for further maximising the benefits of WHOLEGARMENT knitting technology.

Additional proposals include knitwear samples produced on SHIMA SEIKI's new SRY machine featuring loop presser beds that produce novel fabrics with woven textures. Also on display will be knitwear with added value in the form of inkjet print designs produced on SHIMA SEIKI's unique SIP flatbed inkjet printing machine. SIP features a height adjustable printing head that allows for printing onto 3D textures, as well as finished products such as WHOLEGARMENT items.
