Shima Seiki to partake in Pitti Immagine Filati expo

Jun '17
Shima Seiki Italia S.p.A., an Italian subsidiary of Japanese computerised knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki Mfg., Ltd., is set to exhibit at the 81st edition of the Pitti Immagine Filati, tradefair for textile fibres, from June 28 to 30, 2017, in Florence, Italy, in booth C18/19, Fashion At Work Section, Padiglione Centrale, and Piano Inferiore.

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. On display will be Shima Seiki’s flagship Wholegarment knitting machine, MACH2XS. 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. Ultra-realistic simulation capability on APEX3 allows Virtual Sampling to minimise the significant amount of time, cost and material spent during the sample-making process. With this new manufacturing model, the production cycle can be shortened to such an extent that on-demand production can revolutionise the supply chain to support mass-customisation and increasing consumer demand for ecommerce applications.
