WHOLEGARMENT® Technology Introduced To NCSU Students

Shima Seiki Manufacturing Ltd., Japan, recently placed a 3-D seamless garment WHOLEGARMENT® knitting machine at the Raleigh, N.C.-based North Carolina State University's (NCSU's) College of Textiles. The machine allows students to experiment with whole-garment knitting design and to see first-hand the benefits of seamless knitting, which include no chaffing and seams that don't pull apart.

"To us, the idea of whole-garment knitting is that we can do prototypes in one place we don't have to send garments out to be sewed but the other aspect is that you are getting a better design because you are actually designing the fabric at the same time you are designing the shape of the garment, so the two are better integrated," said Lisa Parillo-Chapman, instructor, department of textile and apparel technology and management.
