SFG20

The Continuously Evolving Glove Knitting Machine

Following in the footsteps of the original SFG fully automatic seamless glove knitting machine, SHIMA SEIKI’s new SFG20 is designed from the ground up to become the new global standard for ultrafine gauge gloves. Inheriting the know-how and experience accumulated over the years as the leading manufacturer of automatic glove knitting machines, the new prototype machine carries over proven SHIMA SEIKI technology such as our original sinker knitting system, stitch density control, and centralized lubrication. In addition, new features such as a removable needle selection drum and belt-driven carriage improve productivity and ease of maintenance. Meanwhile, made-in-Japan quality, reliability, productivity, and value also combine to satisfy the high expectations of the world's glove knitting industries.

Ultrafine Gauge Gloves

Ultrafine Gauge Gloves

SFG20 can knit 21-gauge gloves using 21-gauge knitting needles, the finest in the world for glove-knitting applications. Ultrafine gauge 21G 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.

Size-Free Production up to L5

Size-Free Production up to L5

Thanks to a new removable needle selection drum, it is easy to change needle selection rods, improving ease of maintenance and size changes with respect to an increased variety of gloves.

Improved 3-Finger Palm Device

Improved 3-Finger Palm Device

For an even more natural fit, the 3-finger palm device knits the upper palm portion below the middle three fingers separately from the rest of the palm. With the pinky joint mounted lower than the rest, independent movement allows for a more comfortable, better fitting glove. Unlike previous devices, the new and improved version performs without affecting the width of the pinky.

Belt-Drive Operation

Belt-Drive Operation

SHIMA SEIKI's original belt-driven carriage yields smooth operation, high stability and energy efficiency, and precise variable control of carriage movement for higher productivity.

A Smaller, Lighter Machine

SFG20 requires up to 25 per cent less installation space, and is up to 25 per cent lighter in weight than the SFG-I series. More machines can be installed in a given factory floorspace, contributing to higher overall manufacturing efficiency.

New Controller Unit

新型コントローラー

A new computer-control unit features a USB memory interface that allows data transfer of large file sizes to support increasingly complex patterns and designs. An external operation panel offers is sold separately improved ergonomics and graphic interface for intuitive operation, while menu-interactive function buttons offer easy input and editing.
