Shima Seiki Italia S.p.A., Italian subsidiary of Japanese computerised knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki Mfg., Ltd., is set to partake in the 80th edition of the Pitti Immagine Filati, a leading international exhibition for textile fibres with the latest products and developments in the industry, to be held from 25 to 27, 2017, in Florence, Italy.

The company will participate in the Fashion at Work section of the exhibition aimed at appealing to the technical and creative interests of visitors by providing hardware and software solutions for design, manufacturing, and processing of knitted goods.

Shima Seiki’s flagship wholegarment knitting machine, MACH2XS, will be on display. Featuring such innovations as the original SlideNeedle on four needle beds as well as the company’s patented spring-loaded moveable sinker system, MACH2XS can knit beautiful, high-quality 3D Items with dimensional structures and details that are uniquely wholegarment, all with very high efficiency while minimising dependence upon labour-intensive sewing and linking. These qualities of wholegarment knit production are maximised in combination with the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system, the latest version of which will be exhibited at Pitti Filati.

At the core of the company’s “Total Fashion System” concept, APEX3 provides comprehensive support throughout the apparel supply chain, integrating production into one smooth and efficient workflow from yarn development, product planning and design to production and even sales promotion. Especially effective is APEX3’s capability to improve on the design and evaluation process with virtual sampling.

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.

Examples of knitwear produced on Shima Seiki’s latest line of computerised knitting machines will be on display as well, including wholegarment knitwear as well as new proposals in knit-weave hybrid textiles produced on the SRY series machine. (GK)
