Japanese firm unveils new glove knitting machine
Jan '12
Shima Seiki Mfg. Ltd., a well-known Japanese knitting machine manufacturer, has unveiled a new version of its famous SFG series glove knitting machine.

The latest version SFG-I is electronically controlled and is available in M, L, L2 and L3 sizes and in 10, 13, 15 and 18 gauges.

The machine will create a new international standard for fine and ultrafine gauge gloves, as it has been improved upon the know-how and experience gathered by Shima Seiki over the years as the leading manufacturer of automatic seamless glove knitting machines.

The SFG-I imbibes Japanese quality, productivity, reliability and other features to meet the high expectations of global glove knitting companies.

In addition to electronic programming, the new machine also has some proven Shima Seiki technology including the company's original stitch density control, centralized lubrication system and sinker knitting system.

The new version has precision engineering needed for fine gauge knitting to produce gloves that have a comfortable fit. These gloves would be highly useful for medical applications and high-precision work. These would also be useful for coated turn gloves due to very tight stitches between the fingers.

The ultrafine 18 gauge gloves manufactured on SFG-I would offer a fit and feel of bare hands. These have round and seamless, snug-fitting fingertips, which make them perfectly suitable for mechanical and technical work that require a high degree of human dexterity.

Since the new machine replaces the traditional control drum with electronic programming, it offers ease of maintenance, superior operability and durability.

Secondary Yarn Cutter Device, Plating Yarn Feeder Control Device, CE Mark for Reliable Safety and 3-Finger Palm Device are some of the optional tools that can be attached with the SFG-I.

Shima Seiki's SFG-I machine has maximum knitting speed of 120-130 rpm in the palm and 260-280 rpm in the finger.
