SHIMA SEIKI design systems and software, computerized knitting machine and cutting machines
support production using various industrial materials in a wide range of appliations.








Special forms


Knit It

Compared to woven fabrics, shaped knitting can produce
items to shape, shortening lead time significantly.

SHIMA SEIKI continues to develop technologies, for
knitting special materials such as carbon fiber, metal,
and monofilament.

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.

Furthermore, conversion from 3D data
to 2D pattern data is also possible,
and conversion to production machine data is easy.

Cost reduce

Time reduce

Quality increase


3D data can be generated, and patterns
can be created and edited from 3D data as well.


Cut It

Composite materials such as CFRP and
GFRP are gaining attention for their
light weight and strength.
SHIMA SEIKI NC cutting machines can
easily handle these materials as well as
a wide range of other industrial materials
including aramid fiber, polyethylene fiber,
and non-woven fabrics.
