Shima Seiki to host private show in Hong Kong
Dec '15
Japanese computerised knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki will hold a private exhibition in Hong Kong from January 11-13, 2016 at the Hong Kong Science Park, Grand Hall, 1/F, Phase 3.

According to a Shima Seiki press release, the Crosstex exhibition presents connectivity as a key theme, and will be held in cooperation with several suppliers.

These suppliers will present their services at individual booths, offering visitors the opportunity to expand their network portfolio by connecting with businesses upstream of the supply chain.

Crosstex is also a showcase for the company's latest selection of computerised flat knitting machines and other textile related machinery, which attracted interest from visitors to Shima Seiki's booth at ITMA 2015.

Featured are the new flagship MACH2XS Wholegarment knitting machine with SlideNeedles mounted on four needlebeds and spring-type sinkers.

Also on show is the compact SWG-N2 series Wholegarment knitting machine that 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.

“The new SVR workhorse series resets the industry benchmark for shaping machines in the tradition of Shima Seiki's legendary SES and SSG machines,” the company said.

Also on display will be Shima Seiki's P-CAM series multi-ply cutting machine and APEX-T design system for weaving.

Demonstrations will also be performed on the 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,” it added.

These include yarn development, product planning and design to machine programming, production and even sales promotion.

“Especially effective is APEX3's capability to improve on the planning process with virtual sampling,” the Japanese company explained.

Photo-realistic simulation capability minimises the need for sample-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost from the sampling process. (AR)
