Shima Seiki of Wakayama, Japan, a leading manufacturer in the computerised flatbed knitting machine industry, is set to participate in the machinery expo, ITMA Asia + CITME 2016, to be held from October 21 to 25, 2016, in hall 4, stand C33, Shanghai, with “Open Your Future” as its exhibition concept, focussing on upcoming needs in the knitting industry.

At ITMA Asia, the company will display WHOLEGARMENT knitting represented by the flagship MACH2XS machine featuring Shima Seiki's original SlideNeedleTM on four needle beds and spring-loaded full-time sinker system. MACH2XS is shown in ultrafine 15L and mid-to-coarse 8L gauges. In addition, the compact SWG061N2 demonstrates its flexibility for knitting a wide range of fashion items and accessories, as well as technical textile applications.

Shima Seiki will also show the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system that proposes revolutionary changes to the knit supply chain, at the expo. APEX3 offers comprehensive support of the entire process of knitwear production from planning and design to production and sales promotion, as well as capability for virtual sampling.

To further enhance the planning and design capability of APEX3, Shima Seiki's recently launched fashion web service “staf” (Shima Trend Archive and Forecast) will also be demonstrated.

Shima KnitPLM, that offers comprehensive management from material sourcing, production planning and monitoring, factory and machine allocation, inventory control, and shipping, customised especially for the knitting sector, will also be a part of the expo. Demonstrations will be held to show how KnitPLM can provide smooth and efficient workflow through each stage of the knit supply chain.

The company will show the SRY machine that offers full control over pressdown of individual loops for unprecedented capability in flechage and inlay patterns, used in knit fashion with unique patterning potential. At ITMA Asia, SRY183LP will be shown with a 72-inch/180cm-wide needle bed for supporting garment-length production and an available maximum of 30 intarsia carriers for full intarsia patterning capability, in ultrafine 16 gauge.

The second machine on display will be SVR123SP, featuring a single loop presser bed located above the rear needle bed. SVR123SP is capable of a wide range of knitting from fashion to technical textiles. Based on the industry-benchmark SVR-series, its triple knitting system is capable of highly productive knitting of complex structures such as inlay. (GK)
