The Italian subsidiary of Japanese computerised knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki is participating at the 77th Pitti Immagine Filati exhibition in Florence, Italy which runs from 1-3 July, 2015.

Shima Seiki will once again be present in the KnitClub section of the exhibition at stand no. D-16 aimed at appealing to the technical and creative interests of visitors.

“The KnitClub zone will also stimulate advanced integration of the entire production chain, which is the perfect setting for presenting our ‘Total Knitting System’ concept,” Shima Seiki said in a press release.

The SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system is at the core of the Total Knitting System and offers full support of the knit supply chain from product planning, yarn design, presentation, sampling, production and sales promotion.

“Ultra-realistic simulation capability allows virtual sampling to minimise the costly time and resource consuming sample making process and products can be evaluated using 3D fitting simulation as well,” it added.

Examples of virtual sampling will be on display, in addition to knitwear produced on the latest line of computerised knitting machines, including knitwear made from the Wholegarment technology.

Newer versions of knitted textiles will also be presented with the display of the new SRY machine that is capable of producing unique hybrid knit fabrics that cross-over into the realm of wovens.

Shima Seiki also informed that it will also be participating as one of the sponsors of the ‘Feel the Yarn’ project.

‘Feel the Yarn’ is a design competition for aspiring designers from the world’s leading fashion schools, aimed at expanding the creative potential of yarns. (AR)
