Shima Seiki to exhibit at A+A 2013 German trade fair
Sep '13
SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD. of Wakayama, Japan will participate in the A+A 2013 Safety, Security and Health at Work International Trade Fair in Düsseldorf, Germany in November. On display will be the latest version of SHIMA SEIKI's original computerized glove knitting machine SFG-I in 15 gauge, demonstrating its new option for knitting gloves that support the use of smart phones, tablets and other touch-control devices.

The new option also addresses work safety issues, as proliferation of touch-control devices increase throughout the work environment. The 15 gauge machine also addresses issues related to precision work that require both bare-hand sensitivity as well as safety protection.

Also on display will be yet another one of SHIMA SEIKI's original technologies, WHOLEGARMENT knitwear that are knit in one entire piece without the need for sewing afterward.

These will demonstrate their practical application as comfortable innerwear for safety applications. In addition to knitted garments, technical samples for industrial textile applications with specialty fibers using seam-free WHOLEGARMENT technology will also be on display.
