Shima Seiki presents latest knitting technology at Shanghaitex

Shima Seiki Mfg., Ltd. of Wakayama, Japan is the leading manufacturer in the computerized flatbed knitting machine industry, with the largest worldwide market share to date. Shima Seiki is also the pioneer in complete garment manufacturing technology called, 'WHOLEGARMENT'.

In this technology, an entire knitted garment is produced on the knitting machine without the need for linking or sewing afterward. Such innovations have established Shima Seiki's reputation as the benchmark company in flat knitting technology.

Shima Seiki exhibited its line of advanced computerized flat knitting machines at Shanghaitex 2009,. The display ranged from its SSG- and SIG- series conventional shaping machines to its latest MACH2-series high-performance 'WHOLEGARMENT' knitting machines.

With the world economy in a downturn and the subsequent slowdown of mainstream production within the Chinese knitting industry, Shima Seiki realized that the traditional display of mainstream middle-gauge machines would be futile.

As a result Shima Seiki took advantage of its technological resources to present customers with various alternative solutions for maintaining success and profitability for its customers while enduring the current economic crisis.

These include production alternatives to supplement diminished mainstream production, and ways to reinforce current production in preparation for eventual economic recovery.

Shima Seiki displayed its NewSES122CS in 3G, and two SSG122FC machines in 16G and 18G. Also on display was an SSG122SV 7G machine that demonstrated the use of WideGauge capability for supporting 4G fabrics.

SIG122SV and SIG123SV machines were both displayed in 14G to demonstrate the benefits, or lack thereof, of a third system, depending on what type of pattern a customer wishes to create.

A 4-color geometric pattern was knit using 14 carriers on the 2-system machine in less than 17 minutes. A full-argyle pattern using 30 carriers was knit on the 3-system machine in a little more than 27 minutes.

At Shanghaitex 2009, the SWG091N with a 36-inch (90cm) knitting width was exhibited for the first time in China and demonstrated garment production for small items and children's wear as well as accessory items.
