Following its successful participation in past editions of Première Vision show in the ‘Knitwear Solutions’ category, SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD. of Wakayama, Japan will once again exhibit at the upcoming Première Vision exhibition in Paris.
SHIMA SEIKI will participate for the flatbed knit sector as sole machine technologist at the exhibition, scheduled to be held from September 16-18, 2014.
On display will be an updated version of SHIMA SEIKI’s ‘SDS-ONE APEX3’ 3D design system demonstrating its comprehensive support of the entire process of knitwear production from planning and design to production and sales promotion, as well as its capability for Virtual Sampling.
Ultra-realistic simulation capability allows Virtual Sampling to minimize the costly time- and resource-consuming sample-making process while enhancing presentation quality.
The 3D simulation technology allows evaluation of knitwear from all angles. 3D modeling, 3D mapping and 3D fitting simulation of multiple coordinate items are possible as well.
APEX3 also supports design and simulation in a variety of other industries such as circular knitting, pile knitting, weaving and printing.
At Première Vision, SHIMA SEIKI will also exhibit knitwear produced on its latest line of computerized knitting machines, including revolutionary WHOLEGARMENT knitwear that features superior fit, comfort and draping characteristics.
In addition, the company will also present brand new proposals in textiles, through samples knitted on SHIMA SEIKI’s new SRY machine that is capable of producing unique hybrid knit fabrics that cross-over into the realm of wovens.
As a leading manufacturer in the computerized flatbed knitting machine industry, SHIMA SEIKI provides complete systems integration from planning, production to sales promotion and retail sales. The company is also the pioneer in complete garment manufacturing technology—called WHOLEGARMENT —wherein an entire knitted garment is produced on the knitting machine without the need for linking or sewing afterward.
