Leading computerized knitting machine manufacturer SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD. of Wakayama, Japan, together with its Italian subsidiary SHIMA SEIKI ITALIA S.p.A., will participate at the ISPO exhibition in Munich, Germany in February.

Nearby at its main booth (no. 538) a WHOLEGARMENT knitting machine along with a computer design system will be shown.

The flagship MACH2XS WHOLEGARMENT knitting machine features such innovations as the original SlideNeedle on four needle beds as well as the company's patented spring-loaded moveable sinker system. It can knit beautiful, high-quality 3D Items with dimensional structures and details that are unique to WHOLEGARMENT, all with very high efficiency while minimizing dependence upon labour-intensive sewing and linking.

The SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system will also be available for demonstrating its "all-in-one" capability to support all aspects of fashion design and production, APEX3 is at the core of SHIMA SEIKI's Total Fashion System concepts, allowing smooth workflow from planning, design and programming to production and even sales promotion.
