THE ULTRAFINE GAUGE SEAMLESS GLOVE

SHIMA SEIKI's NewSFG computerized seamless glove machine has gained a large following with users worldwide, thanks to its quality, reliability and unparalleled technology developed especially for fine and ultrafine gauge applications. In addition to its already impressive lineup of 10, 13 and 15 gauges, the NewSFG has now evolved to include an 18 gauge machine. The NewSFG's proven sinker system and yarn insertion device carry on the tradition of producing seamless gloves which conform better to the shape of hands with smoother rounded fingertips. These quality production benefits, combined with the precision engineering required for ultrafine gauge knitting, can produce gloves with a natural and comfortable fit that is perfect for high-precision work, medical applications, and coated gloves.

The World's First Ultrafine Gauge Gloves

The World's First Ultrafine Gauge Gloves

The NewSFG features the world's first application of 18G ultrafine gauge glove knitting. 18G gloves offer a fit and feel equivalent to that of bare hands, giving new meaning to the term "fits like a glove." Round and seamless, snug-fitting fingertips make them perfect for applications that require high manual precision including medical, technical and assembly work. Very tight stitches between the fingers also make them suited for use as coated turn gloves.

Ultra-Compact and Lightweight Carriage

Ultra-Compact and Lightweight Carriage

The NewSFG also features a completely new carriage system which is 20% smaller and 30% lighter than its predecessor. The ultra-compact, lightweight design yields lower moment of inertia for quicker, more responsive carriage returns for increased productivity, all while minimizing structural stress on the machine for increased durability.

Stitch Density Control

Stitch Density Control

A new stepping motor finely adjusts stitch density to help the glove conform to the various parts of the hands. Particularly in fine gauge applications, precise adjustments must be made in order to knit yarns at the fingertips. By doing so, gloves can be shaped to fit fingers and hands snugly and extend the benefits of ultrafine gauge gloves even further.

Reliable Yarn-Tail Insertion

Reliable Yarn-Tail Insertion

Previously, yarn tails sticking out of fingertips were inserted using an air blower. Now the NewSFG features a new motor-driven yarn inserting hook which mechanically, and reliably, inserts yarn tails into the fingertips for the highest possible quality.

Centralized lubrication

Centralized lubrication

The NewSFG's centralized lubrication system features lubrication to all required parts at the touch of a lever. Lubrication with the recommended Genuine Shima Oil provides sufficient coverage to all parts of the machine for minimized wear and easier maintenance. In addition, the NewSFG features computer-controlled automatic lubrication of the sinker and jack, providing an optimum amount of oil to the sinkers according to a preset schedule. Automatic lubrication also prevents over-lubrication, conserving oil and keeping your products clean (Genuine Shima Oil is recommended).
