WAKAYAMA, Japan — August 5, 2016 — Leading Japanese computerized knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki Mfg. Ltd., together with its Sri Lankan representative Tajima Colombo (Pvt.) Ltd., will hold a private exhibition in Sri Lanka this month.
The exhibition will showcase the company’s latest WHOLEGARMENT® knitting machine, the flagship MACH2XS. Featuring Shima Seiki’s original SlideNeedle™ mounted on four needle beds, MACH2XS is the world’s first four-bed machine equipped with Shima Seiki’s original spring-loaded moveable sinker system. The SWG061N2 compact Wholegarment knitting machine also features the SlideNeedle and offers great flexibility in producing a variety of accessory items such as gloves, socks, leggings, hats and mufflers as well as childrenswear and even technical textiles. Shima Seiki’s original product, the glove knitting machine, is represented by the latest SFG-I machine in 18G for ultrafine gauge glove produc- tion as well as dipping applications.
Demonstrations will also be performed on Shima Seiki’’s SDS-ONE APEX3 3-D design system that is at the core of the company’s “Total Knitting System” concept. With comprehensive support of all aspects throughout the knit supply chain, APEX3 integrates knit production into one smooth and efficient workflow from yarn development, product planning and design to machine programming, production and even sales promotion. Especially effective is APEX3’s capability to improve on the planning process with Virtual Sampling. Photo-realistic simulation capability minimizes the need for sam- ple-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost from the sampling process.
