SFG-I

THE CONTINUOUSLY EVOLVING
GLOVE KNITTING MACHINE

Following in the footsteps of the original SFG fully automatic seamless glove knitting machine, SHIMA SEIKI’s SFG-I is now the new global standard for fine and ultrafine gauge gloves, having inherited the know-how and experience accumulated over the years as the leading manufacturer of automatic glove knitting machines. SFG-I now features electronic programming, while carrying over proven SHIMA SEIKI technology such as our original sinker knitting system, stitch density control, and centralized lubrication. Made-in-Japan quality, reliability, productivity, and value also combine to satisfy the high expectations of the world's glove knitting industries. These quality production benefits, combined with the precision engineering required for fine gauge knitting, produce gloves with a natural and comfortable fit that is perfect for high-precision work, medical applications, and coated gloves. Very tight stitches between the fingers also make them suited for use as coated turn gloves as well.

Ultrafine Gauge Gloves

Ultrafine Gauge Gloves

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.

New Control System

New Control System

Machine control is now performed by electronic programming, replacing the conventional control drum. The result is a user-friendly machine that features superior operability, durability, and ease of maintenance.

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.

Original Sinker System and Durable Needle Bed

Original Sinker System and Durable Needle Bed

With SHIMA SEIKI’s original sinker knitting system, SFG-I produces gloves that are superior in stretch and strength qualities and conform perfectly to the shape of hands.

The SFG-I needle bed features special insertion plates. Precision-manufactured from special steel using state-of-the-art hardening technology, these plates provide extreme strength and durability for highspeed, high-quality product manufacturing, while facilitating maintenance.

Centralized lubrication

The SFG-I'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 SFG-I 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).
