SFG

THE BEST-SELLING GLOVE KNITTING MACHINE IN THE WORLD.

Back in the early 1960's Shima Seiki was originally founded on a mission to develop an automated seamless glove knitting machine. Constant improvements have been made to that original machine in the years since. With pioneering technology, durability and reliable productivity, our machines have enjoyed worldwide popularity throughout the years. Today, our computerized SFG carries on this tradition of success by becoming the best-selling glove knitting machine in the world. SFG gloves have found widespread use-from outdoor leisure activities like camping and fishing, to industrial applications of work gloves on the assembly line. For proven productivity, the SFG is truly second to none.

Original Sinker Knitting System

Original Sinker Knitting System

The first of its kind in the world, Shima Seiki's original sinker knitting system allows the SFG to master the production of irregularly-shaped items such as gloves and socks. With this system, the SFG-series offers products that are superior in stretch and strength as well as featuring excellent conformity to the shape of hands.

Excellent Rounded Fingertip Knitting

The SFG also employs the sinker knitting system in place of the conventional pull-down system for knitting more rounded and smoother fitting fingertips. In addition, an advanced stitch conversion device permits very snug-fitting fingertips, which are vital for performing precision work while wearing gloves.

Control Panel for Easy User-Interface

Control Panel for Easy User-Interface

The SFG controller focuses on ease of operation. Large buttons with distinct tactile feedback and clear pictograms avoid confusion and operator error. Large LED displays communicate current knitting conditions at a glance. Touch-control numerical keys also offer convenient data input.

Extremely Durable Needle Bed

Extremely Durable Needle Bed

The needle bed is formed by inserting special high-precision plates. Manufactured from special steel using state-of-the-art hardening techno-logy, these plates provide extreme strength and durability for high-speed, high-quality product manufacturing, while facilitating the replacement of broken plates.

High-Precision Carriage

High-Precision Carriage

The carriage and cam systems are made of carefully selected steel and manufactured using a special computer-controlled hardening process. The hardened material allows highly precise carriage movement for achieving improved consistency and product quality. For the rear carriage, the center cam tuck system has been adopted as well.

The Original X-Device

An original Shima Seiki development, the X-device eliminates the necessity for using post-knit overlock sewing machines at the cuffs, which requires much experience and expertise. The X-device is therefore an effective way to cut manual labor costs and increase overall productivity (Not available for machines employing a 4-color conversion device).

Size Changing System (optional)

Size Changing System (optional)

A variable needle selection drum enables the number of needles to be changed simply by changing the pins as required. Two different sized gloves can then be knit through the combined use of the optional size changing system. This helps realize greater versatility and more economical production planning.

CE Mark For Reliable Safety (CE versions only)

CE Mark For Reliable Safety (CE versions only)

Developed for the European Community, CE version machines features a sleek new look that is more than just skin-deep. Represented by such features as an integrated safety cover and interlock mechanism, the CE Mark attached to the side of each CE version is a symbol of Shima Seiki's commitment to the safety and reliability of its products.
