Shima Seiki to exhibit knitting machines at ITM Texpo

Leading computerized knitting machine manufacturer SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD. of Wakayama, Japan will exhibit at ITM Texpo Eurasia 2014 in Istanbul, Turkey.
 
Turkey’s knitting industry is rapidly gaining recognition as a provider of high quality and quick response for the European fashion market.
 
As increased competition with China and other Asian markets becomes inevitable however, Turkey must shed its image of a simple manufacturing base and attract more business by acquiring the capability for its own product planning and proposals as a key to its own survival.
 
At ITM Texpo Eurasia SHIMA SEIKI proposes the Total Fashion System which unifies the apparel supply chain from planning and design, yarn selection, product evaluation and production to sales promotion; all in one smooth and efficient workflow made possible with its SDS-ONE APEX3 3D apparel design system. This applies not only to knitting, but to a wide range of other fashion-related industries as well.
 
At the same time, Turkey is undergoing rapid growth as an exporter and its economy is booming. While economically sound, like all other textile markets before it, this presents a dilemma to its textile industry in the form of increased wages.
 
In such a labor-intensive industry this makes it increasingly difficult to remain competitive. SHIMA SEIKI’s WHOLEGARMENT knitting technology realizes an alternative to labor-intensive manufacturing, creating unprecedented knitwear with new forms of added value. To this end, a wide range of WHOLEGARMENT knitting machines will be exhibited at the SHIMA SEIKI booth.
 
SHIMA SEIKI will also exhibit a wide range of products for catering to the various needs of users in the Turkish market, including the entire range of available gauges on its all-new SVR series computerized flat knitting machine for shaped knitting, as well as the leading edge in coarse gauge and intarsia knitting. Also on display will be the SIP-160F2 textile printing machine that demonstrates new proposals in value-added knitwear.
