Shima Seiki Engineers New Computerized Flat-Knitting Machine

Japan-based Shima Seiki Mfg. Ltd. has introduced the SSR™ 112 entry-level computerized flat-knitting machine designed for fast, mass production of basic knitwear. The company developed the machine in response to economic changes that have led to large manufacturing demand for volume goods produced rapidly at a reduced price. The company also hopes companies that previously may have considered Shima Seiki to be an upscale brand will look at its more affordable line of machinery.

The SSR 112 features a 45-inch knitting width and Shima Seiki's R2CARRIAGE® Rapid Response Carriage facilitates system high-speed knitting. The ultra-compact double-carriage system reduces the size of the machine, allowing up to 15 percent more machinery to be installed in the same floor space compared to conventional knitting machines with similar knitting widths. Shima Seiki reports the SSR 112 is 25-percent more energy-efficient than previous-generation machines, and the company includes DSCS® Digital Stitch Control System as a standard feature for quality and consistency.
