SVR202 supports a variety of production needs with its wide 80-inch knitting width and tandem knitting capability. High productivity is achieved 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. 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.


Type SVR202
Variation SV SC
Gauge 7・12・14 7・8・10・12・14・16
Knitting width Variable stroke, max 80" (203cm)
Tandem width Max 37" (94cm) x 2
WideGauge Wide range of gauge knit on a single machine (SV only).
Knitting speed Max 1.4m/sec. Knitting speed varies according to yarn, gauge and other knitting conditions. Speed can be programmed for 10 separate categories.
Stitch density 120 levels, electronically controlled
Racking Motor-driven. Max 1 inch racking in each side (2 inches total). 1/2 and1/4 pitch also available from any position.
Knitting system Single KNITRAN system, twin carriages (R2CARRIAGE system)
Transfer Simultaneous transfer, front or back, independent of carriage direction. Split stitch possible by exchanging yarn carriers.
Sinker system Spring-type moveable full-sinker system. Provides gentle holddown instead of forcibly pressing down yarn. Spring-type moveable full-sinker system.(SC7G,8G,10G,12G)
Fixed type sinker system.(SC14G,16G)
Spring-type moveable full-sinker system and fixed type sinker system can be replaced. (SC12G, 14G, 16G only) (1)(2)
Stitch presser Special motor-drive. On/off adjustment. Press-down amount can also be set according to knit, transfer, etc.
Needle hook conversion Conversion between LL-size and MM-size possible without exchanging cams (SV only).
Needle selection Full jacquard selection via special solenoid actuators.
Takedown device Main/sub rollers. Changeable 99 levels, automatically adjustable on each level. Automatic opening and closing upon command (sub roller only).
DSCS Digital Stitch Control System. Consistent loop length by digital control method. 4 lightweight, compact encoders. Left side standard (3).
Yarn feed roller 8 positions on left side standard (SV7G only: 10 positions on both sides standard) (3).
Side tensions 8 positions on each side (SV7G:12 positions on each side) (4). Brake disk with multi-step adjustable dials. Both sides standard.
Yarn carriers 12 normal carriers, 1 plating carrier (accessory)
Top tension 16 units (SV7G: 24 units) (4). One-touch easy threading. Large knots cause machine stop. Small knots cause 0-9 courses at specified knot detection speed, then automatically resume at set speed.
Stop motion Yarn break, large knot, fabric pileup, shock detection, piece count, over-torque, program error, etc.
Drive system Belt drive. AC servo motor. No lubrication necessary.
Cleaner Special blower operated cleaner
Safety devices Full safety cover for noise-suppression and dust-proofing with stop motion sensor and interlock mechanism. Emergency stop switch. Emergency power off device. Ultra-low speed "crawl" setting. CE Mark. Operation lamp (see below).
