Shima Seiki to host knitting machines expo in Spain
Sep '16
Shima Seiki SPAIN S.A.U., Spanish subsidiary of leading Japanese manufacturer in the computerised flatbed knitting machine industry, Shima Seiki MFG., LTD., is set to host an exhibition of its knitting machineries like WHOLEGARMENT and computerised flat knitting machines, at its office and showroom in Barcelona, Spain from October 2016 4 to 6, 2016.

The exhibition will showcase the company's flagship WHOLEGARMENT knitting machine, MACH2XS. Featuring Shima Seiki's original SlideNeedle on four needle beds and spring-type moveable sinkers, MACH2XS combines high efficiency and stability with extended patterning capability for knitting WHOLEGARMENT items. The compact SWG091N2 WHOLEGARMENT knitting machine, offers flexible production in producing a wide variety of seam-free items as well as technical textiles for sports, medical, and other industrial applications, will also be on display.

The company will show its novel SRY183LP computerised flat knitting machine that features loop presser beds with inlay capability, offering new and exciting possibilities in hybrid knit-weave textiles.

Conventional knitting machines such as the compact SSR112 and the industry-benchmark SVR122 machines, that demonstrate the leading edge in computerised shaped knitting technology, will be a part of the expo. Both feature such proven Shima Seiki technology as Digital Stitch Control System (DSCS), spring-loaded moveable sinker system, and stitch presser. Made-in-Japan quality, reliability, productivity, user-friendliness, and cost-performance combine to satisfy the high standards expected by today's fashion industry.

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. With comprehensive support of all aspects throughout the knit supply chain, 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.
