Leading Japanese computerized flat knitting machine manufacturer SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD. will exhibit at the upcoming Best Solutions in Textile Manufacturing Fair (BSTIM) in Igualada, Spain this month.

On display will be SHIMA SEIKI's latest line of computerized flat knitting machines, including those capable of WHOLEGARMENT knitting whereby an entire garment can be produced in one piece on the machine without linking or sewing. The flagship WHOLEGARMENT knitting machine MACH2XS is capable of knitting items requiring tight, high-quality fabrics in all needles, thanks to its four needle beds using the company's original SlideNeedle. Furthermore MACH2XS has increased patterning range due to its spring-type moveable sinkers and optional inlay carriers. The smaller SWG091N2 WHOLEGARMENT knitting machine provides opportunities for highly flexible WHOLEGARMENT production over a wide range of items including industrial textiles, in a compact, economical package. The novel SRY123LP computerized flat knitting machine features loop presser beds with inlay capability, offering new and exciting possibilities in knit-weave hybrid fabrics as well as technical textiles. The benchmark SVR series, as well as the SSR series workhorse shaping machines will round out the display with the latest in SHIMA SEIKI computerized flat knitting technology. Among these is the new SVR123SP machine with loop presser bed and inlay capability shown at ITMA Asia + CITME 2016 held in Shanghai last October.

Also shown will be the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system. Key to SHIMA SEIKI's "Total Fashion System" concept, APEX3 integrates all stages of apparel production into one smooth and efficient workflow from planning and design to production and sales promotion. With ultra-realistic product simulations, APEX3 is also capable of Virtual Sampling that minimizes the costly time- and resource-consuming sample-making process.
