WAKAYAMA, Japan — May 23, 2016 — Leading computerized knitting machine manufacturer SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD. of Wakayama, Japan will participate in the ITM Texpo Eurasia 2016 exhibition in Istanbul, Turkey in June.
A prominent market for SHIMA SEIKI computerized knitting machines with both an established export base to Europe as well as a growing domestic market, Turkey is proving to be a high-potential market for the company’s WHOLEGARMENT® knitting technology.
Accordingly at ITM 2016, SHIMA SEIKI will exhibit a wide range of its products, including new proposals in seam-free WHOLEGARMENT® knitting technology that offers an alternative to labor-intensive manufacturing in Turkey and other inter- national markets. Featured is the flagship MACH2XS WHOLEGARMENT® knitting machine with original SlideNeedle® on four needle beds and spring-loaded moveable sinkers, as well as the compact SWG091N2 for producing smaller WHOLEGARMENT® items and accessories. Novel proposals in knit-weave hybrid fabrics will be made on a pair of SRY machines featuring specialized loop presser beds. The SVR workhorse series, touted as the industry benchmark for shaped knitting, will be shown in a variety of gauges, while the SSR series offers industry-leading technology in an eco- nomical package. SCG122SN will round out the flat knitting machine lineup with specialized coarse gauge knitting. SHIMA SEIKI’s SIP-series inkjet printing machine will also demonstrate high-speed high-quality printing directly on fabrics and even finished goods.
Demonstrations will be performed on the SDS-ONE APEX3 design system that is at the core of the company’s “Total Fashion System” concept. With comprehensive support of the knit supply chain, APEX3 integrates every stage from plan- ning and design to machine programming, production and even sales promotion into one smooth and efficient workflow. Photo-realistic simulation capability allows Virtual Sampling to minimize the need for actual sample-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost while increasing presentation quality in the sampling process.
