SHIMA SEIKI to Exhibit at IGATEX 2019

Leading Japanese computerized flat knitting machine manufacturer SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD. of Wakayama, Japan will exhibit at the upcoming 12th International Exhibition for Garment, Textile Machinery and Accessories (IGATEX 2019) exhibition to be held in Karachi, Pakistan later this month.

On display will be SHIMA SEIKI's SSR series computerized flat knitting machine that materializes the company's philosophy to offer the most advanced technology available at an affordable price. The company aims to assist in modernizing Pakistani factories that continue to rely on dependable yet aging older-model SHIMA SEIKI machines with the latest technology. Featuring industry-leading innovations such as the R2CARRIAGE, spring-type moveable sinker, DSCS Digital Stitch Control System, stitch presser and takedown comb, Made-in-Japan quality, reliability, productivity, user-friendliness and cost-performance combine to satisfy the high expectations of the world's fashion industry.

Demonstrations will be performed on the SDS-ONE APEX3 design system that is at the core of the SHIMA SEIKI's "Total Knitting System" concept. With comprehensive support of the knit supply chain, APEX3 integrates knit production into one smooth and efficient workflow from planning and design to machine programming, production and even sales promotion. Photo-realistic simulation capability allows for Virtual Sampling to minimize the need for actual sample-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost while increasing presentation quality in the sampling process. APEX3 also supports design and simulation in a variety of other industries in addition to flat knitting such as circular knitting, weaving, pile weaving and printing.
