The US subsidiary of Japanese flat knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki will hold its 'Global 3D Knitting Seminar & Workshop' at the California Market Center in Los Angeles from Feb 29 to March 4, 2016.

On display will be the cutting edge in computerised flat knitting technology, represented by the latest Wholegarment machines, computerised flat knitting machines and a 3D apparel design system.

“On show will be a pair of flagship MACH2XS Wholegarment knitting machines in differing gauges and knitting widths,” the company informed in a press release.

“Featuring Slideneedle on four needle beds and spring-loaded moveable sinkers, MACH2XS offers higher efficiency with expanded patterning capability while knitting Wholegarment items,” it said.

While, the compact SWG091N2 Wholegarment knitting machine offers flexible production as well as the capability for producing technical textiles for sports, medical and other industrial applications.

Another machine, the SRY123LP computerised flat knitting machine features loop presser beds with inlay capability, offering new and exciting possibilities in knit-textile hybrid fabrics as well as industrial textiles.

It will be paired with the 'Yarn Unwinding Option', an essential tool that offers smooth and stable feed of material that is normally difficult to feed into knitting machines, such as metallic and monofilament yarns.

“Conventional knitting machines such as the compact SSR112 and workhorse SIR123 machine will also be on display to demonstrate the leading edge in computerised shaped knitting technology,” Shima Seiki informed.

Also on show is the SDS-ONE APEX3 system that is at the core of the company's 'Total Fashion 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.

According to Shima Seiki, virtual sampling through photo-realistic simulation minimises the need for sample-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost from the sampling process.

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