Shima Seiki to partake at Techtextil North America

The US subsidiary of Japanese computerised knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki is exhibiting at Techtextil North America show in Houston, USA this June.

“On display will be the company’s latest technological contributions to the field of technical textiles,” Shima Seiki said in a press release.

SRY123LP is its latest computerised knitting machine that features loop presser beds mounted atop conventional needle beds, providing improved control over pressdown of individual loops.

It presents unprecedented capability for partial knitting and inlay patterns. Inlay fabric is produced by inserting yarn into existing knit fabrics in a weave fashion, opening opportunities for expansion into wovens.

“Inlay also suppresses typical stretch characteristics of knitted fabrics, and since new materials such as metallic and monofilament yarns can be used for inlay structures, new applications in industrial textiles are realised,” it added.

Shima Seiki will also display the SWG061N2 compact Wholegarment knitting machine that features the company’s original SlideNeedle technology.

Capable of producing small knitted items like safety gloves and compression socks to industrial applications like tubular shields and harnesses, SWG061N2 can knit all of these items in 3D without seams.

Normally when knitting with stiff materials such as metallic and monofilament yarns, the yarn has a tendency to kink, making it practically impossible to feed smoothly into the knitting machine.

Using the new Shima Seiki ‘Yarn Unwinding’ technology, a motorised bobbin actively unwinds yarn to provide smooth and stable yarn feed with careful control over feed amount and tension.

“The latest version of its SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system will also be available for demonstrations,” the Japanese knitting machine producer informed. (AR)
