Shima Seiki to show 3D design system at Spin Expo
Aug '14
Japan-based SHIMA SEIKI Mfg., Ltd., a leading manufacturer in the computerized flatbed knitting machine industry, along with its Hong Kong subsidiary SHIMA SEIKI (Hong Kong) Ltd., will be showcasing its latest 3D apparel design system at the upcoming 24th session of Spin Expo in Shanghai, China.
The company will display its latest “SDS-ONE APEX3” 3D design system at Booth J14, Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center, from September 2-4, 2014.
APEX3 is at the core of SHIMA SEIKI’s “Total Fashion System” concept, made possible due to its comprehensive support of the knit apparel production process from planning and production to 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. 
Moreover, APEX3 also supports design and simulation in a variety of other industries such as circular knitting, weaving, pile weaving and printing. For these processes, SHIMA SEIKI also offers Virtual sampling, along with 3D modeling, 3D mapping and 3D fitting simulation.
At the exhibition, SHIMA SEIKI will also display its latest collection of knit samples, including seam-free WHOLEGARMENT knitwear that features superior fit, comfort and draping characteristics.
Since its commercial introduction in 1995, SHIMA SEIKI has been the undisputed leader in WHOLEGARMENT knitting technology with almost 30 years of on-going research and almost 20 years of proprietary field experience and know-how, not to mention over one thousand patents worldwide concerning machinery, programming, and stitch structure, according to a statement issued by the company.
