Shima Seiki to host private exhibition in UK

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the opening of its European subsidiary, flat knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki will hold a private exhibition at its offices in Derbyshire in UK on December 8 and 9, 2015.

“The event celebrates not only 30 years of sales and service in the UK, but as Shima Seiki's first overseas subsidiary, it also signifies three decades of direct sales and service for overseas customers,” it said.

Following its very successful showing at the ITMA exhibition held in Milan, the Japanese company will be displaying similar technology in the form of an 'After-Show' exhibition.

This will be centered around the company's exclusive Wholegarment knitting technology, which itself celebrates its 20th Anniversary this year.

The flagship MACH2X series features Shima Seiki's original SlideNeedle on four needlebeds and is the only machine suited to Wholegarment knitting in all needles.

Featuring its original spring-type sinker system, the new MACH2XS machine that was the centerpiece at its ITMA booth will be shown as well.

While, another technology on show, the SWG-N2 series compact Wholegarment knitting machine offers increased colour capacity as well as the capability for producing industrial textiles.

The SRY123LP features a pair of loop presser beds mounted above a conventional V-shaped needlebed and is capable of producing unique knit fabrics with woven textures as well as technical textiles.

According to the Japanese company, the new SVR workhorse series resets the industry benchmark once again for shaping machines in the tradition of Shima Seiki's legendary SES and SSG machines.

Aside from computerized knitting machines, the exhibition will feature the SIP-series flatbed-type on-demand inkjet printing machine and P-CAM cutting machine, both of which were also displayed at ITMA.

Demonstrations will also be performed on the SDS-ONE APEX3 design system that is at the core of the company's “Total Knitting System” concept.

With comprehensive support of the knit supply chain, APEX3 integrates knit production into one smooth and efficient workflow from planning and design to machine programming, production and even sales promotion.

Photo-realistic simulation capability allows virtual sampling to minimise the need for actual sample-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost while increasing presentation quality in the sampling process.

APEX3 also supports design and simulation in various other industries such as circular knitting, weaving, pile weaving and printing. (AR)
