Shima Seiki To Hold Private Show In Italy

TREVISO, Italy — September 9, 2014 — Shima Seiki Italia S.p.A., Italian subsidiary of leading Japanese computerized knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki Mfg., Ltd., will hold a private exhibition at its Treviso office later this month. This follows its successful showings at its headquarters and showroom in Segrate, Milano this March as well as its office in Carpi in June.

The exhibition will be a showcase for the company’s newest selection of computerized flat knitting machines. From the flagship MACH2X series with SlideNeedles mounted on four needlebeds to the new SWG-N2 series compact

WHOLEGARMENT® knitting machine with capability for industrial textiles, and the SRY series machines with loop pressers that produce unique knitwear with woven textures, the lineup is sure to impress with its highly advanced technology.

Demonstrations will also be performed on Shima Seiki’s SDS-ONE APEX3 3D 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.
