Shima Seiki to exhibit at Première Vision expo

Jan '17
Shima Seiki, a leading manufacturer in the computerised flatbed knitting machine industry, is set to exhibit at the Première Vision show in New York, the global textile event for fashion professionals that include weavers, leather producers, accessories companies, designs studios and manufacturers, to be held on January 17 and 18, 2017, in booth A3.

The company will participate in the new “Manufacturing” area dedicated to technical and logistical manufacturing solutions as sole machine technologist with a machine exhibit. Given current conditions in garment manufacturing especially in the US, Shima Seiki’s proposals at Première Vision New York should be of timely significance.

The combination of Shima Seiki’s WHOLEGARMENT knitting technology and SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system offers an ideal manufacturing model to support just that. Because of their capability to produce elegant items in their entirety in 3D without the need for sewing or linking, WHOLEGARMENT knitting machines realise high-quality quick response production thanks to reduced lead times as well as reduced dependence on labour. These qualities are maximised with the latest MACH2XS series WHOLEGARMENT knitting machines. WHOLEGARMENT knitting, together with the aforementioned SDS-ONE APEX3, form a synergy that provides revolutionary game-changing flexibility in the knit supply chain. Ultra-realistic simulation capability on APEX3 allows Virtual Sampling to minimise the time and cost impact that the sample-making process has on current manufacturing.

With this new manufacturing model, the production cycle can be shortened to such an extent that on-demand production is possible without being limited to seasonal cycles. To further enhance the planning and design capability of APEX3, Shima Seiki’s new web-based fashion service “staf” (shima trend archive and forecast) will also be demonstrated. Staf provides a massive collection of fashion related content including an archive of fashion and colour trends covering the past 50 years. This information can be neatly organised on a virtual concept board that can be shared across various devices, improving on planning efficiency significantly.

Also on display at Première Vision New York will be Shima Seiki’s novel SRY computerised flat knitting machine with specialised loop presser beds that provide unprecedented capability especially with inlay patterns. Inlay fabric is produced by inserting yarn into knit fabric in a weave fashion, offering new and exciting possibilities in hybrid knit-weave textiles that open up opportunities for expansion into markets for wovens.
