SHIMA SEIKI to Exhibit at SIMATEX 2018

Leading computerized knitting machine manufacturer SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD. of Wakayama, Japan will participate in the SIMATEX exhibition in Buenos Aires, Argentina this April.

SHIMA SEIKI will exhibit a wide range of its products, including proposals in seam-free WHOLEGARMENT knitting technology that offers an alternative to labor-intensive manufacturing in the South American market. Featured is the flagship MACH2XS with original SlideNeedle on four needle beds and spring-loaded moveable sinkers for knitting WHOLEGARMENT knitwear in all needles, as well as the MACH2S V-bed machine with special twin-needle configuration for knitting WHOLEGARMENT knitwear with every other needle. The SVR workhorse series resets the industry benchmark for shaped knitting, with the SVR123SP featuring a special loop presser bed that can produce hybrid inlay fabrics with both knit and weave characteristics. The SSR series offers industry-leading technology in an economical yet reliable package Made-in-Japan.

Demonstrations will be performed on the SDS-ONE APEX3 design system. At the core of the company's "Total Fashion System" concept, APEX3 provides comprehensive support throughout the production supply chain, integrating production into one smooth and efficient workflow from yarn development, product planning and design, to production and even sales promotion. Especially effective is the way APEX3 improves on the design evaluation process with its ultra-realistic simulation capability, whereby virtual samples minimize the need for actual sample-making. This realizes significant savings in time, cost and material, contributing to sustainable manufacturing.
