SHIMA SEIKI has a long history of contributing to the fashion industry.
We will continue to support our customers with reliable technology and solutions.
Our products are used adopted by the following brands.


Knit It

SHIMA SEIKI's flat knitting machine
can efficiently produce traditional sweaters
to even delicate couture products.



Since WHOLEGARMENT is knitted as one entire piece
without the sewing process, it offers on-demand
production suitable for mass customization and
e-commerce, which have become popular in recent years.
Furthermore, because we can produce as much is required
with the necessary materials, WHOLEGARMENT is an
environmentally friendly, sustainable solution.

Design System/Software SDS-ONE APEX Series

Design It

With the SDS-ONE APEX series design system
and software, designs can be evaluated
during the planning and design stages
using "virtual samples" created by simulations.

The need for sampling is eliminated because it is
realistic enough to be regarded as an actual product,
which can shorten lead times for product development.

In addition, accurate digital communication
can be achieved by using APEX series
by yarn manufacturer, apparel, and producer.

Utilization in e-commerce

High-definition virtual samples can also be used for EC sites, pre-sales, and sales promotion tools.

When executing the 3D fitting simulation, you can check the silhouette of the product, as well as the tension, the compression, and the amount of ease.


Cut It

The production efficiency of fashion items
is further enhanced through automation realized
by the introduction of computerized fabric cutting machines.

SHIMA SEIKI's CAM has a wide selection
of cutting widths, thickness of fabrics,
types of cutters, etc.

Revolutionizing the Supply Chain

By linking SHIMA SEIKI products and solutions,

that realizes smart, speedy and sustainable production.
