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.

Plating Yarn Feeder Control Device

Plating Yarn Feeder Control Device

The optional yarn feeder control device offers an economical solution to using expensive yarns by cutting back on the use of plating yarn. Electrically conductive yarns for circuit board assembly for example, can be very costly. By regulating the amount of plating yarn, cost can be cut while maintaining the functional capacity of the gloves.

3-Finger Palm Device

3-Finger Palm Device

For an even more natural fit, we offer the 3-finger palm option. With this option the upper palm portion below the middle-three fingers is knitted 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. It also makes it easier to mount gloves onto moulds for processing of coated or treated gloves.

Secondary Yarn Cutter Device

Secondary Yarn Cutter Device

Developed for the optional 2-color devices, the secondary yarn cutter device features a motor-driven cutter and looper for secondary-color yarns. Its electronically controlled motor enables holding and releasing of secondary yarn at specified courses during knitting.

CE Mark for Reliable Safety (CE versions only)

CE Mark for Reliable Safety (CE versions only)

Developed for the European Community, the CE version features an integrated safety cover with interlock mechanism and a signal tower for instantly communicating operational conditions. 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 (Safety cover is optional on other versions).
