Shima Seiki to hold private exhibition in Barcelona
Jun '15
The Spanish subsidiary of Japanese computerised knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki is holding a private exhibition in Barcelona, Spain on June 30 and July 1, 2015.

“The exhibition will showcase the company’s latest Wholegarment knitting machine, based on its flagship MACH2X series,” a Shima Seiki press release informed.

According to Shima Seiki, featuring SlideNeedles mounted on four needlebeds, MACH2XS is the world’s first four-bed machine equipped with its original spring-loaded moveable sinker system.

“This allows unprecedented capability in Wholegarment knitting, especially in producing 3D fabric structures and knitting, which can be applied to brand new ideas in knit fashion,” it added.

It will also show the SSR112 shaping machine with features like the patented Digital Stitch Control System (DSCS), spring-loaded moveable sinker system, stitch presser, yarn gripper and cutter and takedown comb.

Demonstrations will also be performed on Shima Seiki’s SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system that is at the core of the company’s ‘Total Knitting System’ concept.

APEX3 integrates knit production into one smooth and efficient workflow from yarn development, product planning and design to machine programming, production and even sales promotion.

“Especially effective is APEX3’s capability to improve on the planning process with virtual sampling,” the computerised knitting machine manufacturer informed.

“Photo-realistic simulation capability minimises the need for sample-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost from the sampling process,” it explained. (AR)
