Computerized Flat Knitting Machine with WHOLEGARMENT Capability



A Versatile Machine Complete with WHOLEGARMENT Capability

SHIMA SEIKI's NewSES-S・WG is an extremely flexible machine which realizes quality knitting in a range of production styles. Like the NewSWG-V WHOLEGARMENT specialty machine, the NewSES-S・WG is capable of knitting complete garments using latch needles, offering a simple solution to the complex demands involved in producing WHOLEGARMENT knitwear. Unlike the NewSWG-V's "twin-needle" configuration however, the NewSES-S・WG employs the standard layout of needles and spring-type sinkers at equal pitch. This makes for an extremely flexible machine with capability to perform fine-gauge shaping and integral knitting as well. It is even capable of gaugeless knitting whereby a number of different gauges can be knit into a single course. The great versatility of the NewSES-S・WG makes it the perfect choice for adopting WHOLEGARMENT production while maintaining flexible support of varying market demands.
