Computerized Flat Knitting Machine



The Benchmark for Shaped Knitting
is Now Even Better

With its latest generation SVR-series shaping machines, SHIMA SEIKI has once again reset the global standard for shaped knitting. Inheriting DNA of such legendary machines as the SES-, SSG- and SIR- series, SVR093 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.
