Automatic Seamless Sock Flat Knitting Machine



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.
