Sound familiar?


Products don't match
the specifications I gave.


I wish we could shorten
sampling lead times.


We need to advocate
sustainable manufacturing, NOW.


The quality of our
3D virtual samples is poor.

APEXFiz® is the solution.

As real as it gets

High-quality virtual fabrics created from actual yarn data are real enough to be mistaken for the real thing.
You won’t have to rely on trial-and-error physical sampling anymore!


Designed with production in mind

With APEXFiz®, your design doesn't stop at virtual sampling.
Design data can be converted to machine data by a qualified knit manufacturer.
Based on the experience and know-how as a leading manufacturer of flat knitting machines,
only SHIMA SEIKI offers this fulfilling experience of smooth communication between planning and production.

All this, AND in realtime

Creating patterns and coloring can be performed in realtime while checking your work in 3D,
so you can always check the final image while designing.
APEXFiz® realizes speedy and intuitive design like no other software.

* Functions may be restricted depending on the software.

APEXFiz® realizes digital transformation (DX) of planning and design,
facilitating sustainable manufacturing.
