SVR123SP

Raising the Benchmark With New Loop Pressers

SHIMA SEIKI's SVR-series continues to inherit the DNA of innovative technology that makes it the global standard in computerized shaping machines. Now with loop pressers, SVR093SP and SVR123SP are capable of producing unprecedented designs in knit fabrics, especially inlay patterns, which combine knit and weave characteristics to produce hybrid textiles. SVR093SP/123SP carries over established SHIMA SEIKI technology such as the R2CARRIAGE System, Digital Stitch Control System (DSCS), spring-loaded moveable 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 increased patterning capability all combine to satisfy the high expectations of the world's fashion industry.

Loop Presser Bed

SVR093SP/123SP features a loop presser bed placed above the rear needle bed. Along with the spring-loaded sinker and stitch presser, stable holddown of loops is achieved, allowing full control especially in producing inlay patterns. Inlay fabric is produced by inserting yarn into existing knit fabric in a weave fashion, yielding unique fabrics that are neither typically knit nor woven. Inlay also suppresses typical stretch characteristics of knitwear, and since new yarns and materials can be used for inlay structures, new applications in addition to fashion apparel such as sports and medical as well as other industrial applications can be anticipated.

Spring-Type Sinker System

Unlike conventional forced-operation type sinkers that tend to subject fabrics to unnecessary stress and cause compressed loops and even yarn breakage, SHIMA SEIKI's spring-type mechanism provides gentle holddown movement and yields ideal loop formation. Consequently, significant improvement in fabric quality for complicated patterns is achieved.

R2CARRIAGE

The R2CARRIAGE (R2=Rapid Response) System features an advanced carriage mechanism combined with improved software programming that achieves quicker carriage returns after each course. Together with an improved knitting system, higher overall productivity can be achieved.

WIDEGAUGE Knitting

WIDEGAUGE Knitting 

Special knitting needles on SVR093SP/123SP realize WideGauge capability whereby a variety of gauges—from finer-gauges using all-needle knitting, to lower-gauges using half-gauge knitting—can 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.

DSCS

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.

A User-Friendlier Knitting Machine

A User-Friendlier Knitting Machine

The network connector is repositioned on the side of the machine for easier access while transferring comprehensive data using Shima KnitPLM. The USB interface is also positioned directly below the control monitor for improved access in data exchange. 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.
