Shima Seiki displaying Wholegarment technology at A+A 2015
Oct '15
Japanese computerised knitting machines producer Shima Seiki is exhibiting at A+A 2015 Safety, Security and Health at Work trade fair being held in Düsseldorf, Germany in hall 9, booth F10.

The company is displaying a compact version of its computerised Wholegarment knitting machine in ultrafine 18 gauge which is perfect for knitting gloves that provide optimum fit and bare-hand sensitivity for precision work.

“Other than these features, it also addresses issues in safety protection with the capacity to perform knitting with variety of new technical yarns,” Shima Seiki stated in a press release.

“At A+A we will demonstrate its use in knitting gloves with compression features, for sports and medical applications,” the Japanese company informed.

The SWG041N2 machine is also capable of knitting various other items from knit caps, balaclavas and lining for protective headgear, to various joint supports, leggings and footwear.

“Its applications now extend to sports, medical and healthcare as well as other technical textile applications,” it added.

“Because Wholegarment knitwear is produced in one entire piece without the need for sewing, applications are available without seams for added comfort and reduced chance of skin irritation,” it explained.

Also on display will be an updated version of the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system demonstrating its role in Wholegarment production.

This it offers, through comprehensive support from planning and design to production and sales promotion, as well as its capability for virtual sampling.

“Ultra-realistic simulation capability allows virtual sampling to minimise the costly time and resource consuming sample making process,” Shima Seiki observed.
