SVR122

The Benchmark for Shaped Knitting
is Now Even Better

SHIMA SEIKI's latest generation of standard shaping machines, the new SVR-series has become the new global standard for shaped knitting. Inheriting DNA of such legendary machines as the SES-, SSG- and SIR- series, SVR122 is the result of SHIMA SEIKI's know-how and experience accumulated over the years as the leading manufacturer of computerized flat knitting machines. Productivity is increased through an improved knitting system combined with a maximum knitting speed of 1.4 meters per second and the R2CARRIAGE System that permits quicker carriage returns. It also carries over established SHIMA SEIKI technology such as the renowned Digital Stitch Control System (DSCS), spring-loaded Full-Time Sinker system, Stitch Presser, Takedown Comb and Yarn Gripper and Cutter system. Proven technology, along with Made-in-Japan quality, reliability, productivity, user-friendliness and cost-performance all combine to satisfy the high expectations of the world's fashion industry.

Productivity / Reliability

The World’s First Digital Stitch Device

DSCS

Considered one of the most significant breakthroughs in modern-day knitting, SHIMA SEIKI's patented Digital Stitch Control System (DSCS) continuously adjusts yarn feed and tension to yield loop consistency with tolerance to within a remarkable ±1%. The result is quality control capability that is virtually impossible with conventional analog systems. In addition to being an essential element in quality shaping and integral garment production, DSCS allows consistency among different batches and repeat orders. DSCS is the only proven digital system field-tested and market-proven in the industry for 30 years. No other manufacturer can claim this kind of experience or level of refinement.

Rapid Response R2CARRIAGE System

The R2CARRIAGE (R2=Rapid Response) System features an advanced carriage mechanism combined with improved software programming that achieves quicker carriage returns after each course. For a given knitting width, a larger and heavier carriage requires more space (B) at each end of the machine to decelerate, return and accelerate back up to speed, so the actual portion where the carriage runs at full speed (A) becomes very limited. With a compact, lightweight carriage, less space is required for the carriage to make returns, allowing more area for the carriage to run at full speed. This allows faster knitting per course, resulting in higher productivity.

Versatility

WIDEGAUGE

WIDEGAUGE

The SV variant of SVR122 offers WideGauge capability that allows a variety of gauges to be knit on a single machine. This allows the freedom to handle changing seasons and shifting trends without investing in a machine for every gauge or resorting to the complex, time-consuming task of gauge conversion.

The SHIMA SEIKI Takedown System

The SHIMA SEIKI Takedown System

SHIMA SEIKI's fabric takedown system features the patented takedown comb which employs a fully-active row of setup needles. Their compound release mechanism offers complete, reliable, snag-free fabric release.

User-Friendliness

Spring-Type Full Sinker

Spring-type sinkers operate full-time regardless of carriage position, and provide gentle holddown movement, realizing significant improvement in quality and texture for complicated three-dimensional fabrics.

Stitch Presser

Stitch Presser

The patented stitch presser system features a special motor-driven system which allows the pressers to carry out individual on/off adjustments in both knit and transfer, in either course direction. These pressers are able to hold down fabric gently for improved consistency and control, contributing significantly to quality shaping.

Other Features

Yarn Gripper and Cutter

Our unique yarn gripper and cutter system consists of two yarn grippers and one yarn cutter that work in precise coordination with each other. Since the gripper and cutter are separate units, they can be independently activated to delay cutting while holding, or perform holding alone.

A User-Friendlier Knitting Machine

A User-Friendlier Knitting Machine

SVR122 features an all-new full-color LCD touch-sensitive control panel with a larger screen that greatly improves on the previous monochromatic display. Still at eye-level and not relying solely on touch-control, the new control panel maintains established ergonomic benefits by carrying over function buttons for simultaneous use of both hands. Easily accessible USB interface and network connection continue to provide improved access in data transfer. For those moments when power suddenly becomes unavailable, a backup power supply allows work to resume after power failures. This offers peace of mind that an entire garment will not be lost due to blackouts.
