Shima Seiki to show digital printing technology at Viscom
Sep '14
Japanese computerized knitting machine producer, Shima Seiki will showcase its latest innovations in digital textile printing technology at Viscom Italia 2014 exhibition in Milan, Italy this October.

Shima Seiki will display the SIP-160F3, its latest flatbed inkjet printing machine that is capable of providing beautiful full color printing on a variety of fabrics.

Shima Seiki said reactive dyes, acid dyes and pigment inks can be used to support different types of print applications.

It added that the printing head can be raised or lowered according to substrate thickness, allowing printing on fabrics with 3-dimensional textures, or even directly on finished products.

Applications include Wholegarment knitwear which is produced in its entirety without any seams using Shima Seiki’s own Wholegarment knitting machine technology.

“Multidrop inkjet technology, ink circulation and degassing system and ink thermoregulation provide efficient and stable printing, Shima Seiki informed.

Also on show is the latest version of its SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system. The color management system on APEX3 provides accurate simulations of the printed piece for checking before printing on SIP-160F3.

APEX3 which is also at the core of its “Total Fashion System” concept, integrates production into one smooth workflow from yarn development, product planning and design to production and even sales promotion.

“Especially effective is APEX3’s capability to improve on the planning process with virtual sampling”, Shima Seiki said.

Photo-realistic simulation capability allows virtual sampling to minimize the costly, time-consuming sample-making process while enhancing presentation quality. (AR)
