Computerized Flat Knitting Machines with Coarse Gauge Capability



The Specialty Machine for Ideal Coarse Gauge Knitting.

Over the years SHIMA SEIKI has supplied the world's knitting industry with specialized technology ideally suited to each application. Continuing that tradition is SCG122SN available in 3 and 4 gauges. In addition to such priorities as speed, efficiency and consistent quality, market demand reveals that the computerization of traditionally hand-knitted low-gauge knitwear must place additional emphasis on fabric texture and feel. Incorporating SHIMA SEIKI's unique SlideNeedle the SCG122SN 3 gauge can produce knitwear with robust, hand-crafted texture as low as 2 gauge.
