Shima Seiki, a leading manufacturer in the computerised flatbed knitting machine industry, along with its US subsidiary, Shima Seiki US Inc., is set to participate in the Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) Expo, the premier industrial fabrics expo in North America, in Charlotte, North Carolina, US, from October 19 to 21, 2016, in booth A935.

Exhibiting in the Advanced Textiles section of the expo, the company will display its latest technological contributions to the field of technical textiles. Known for its pioneering WHOLEGARMENT knitting technology wherein a knitted item is produced in its entirety without seams, SHIMA SEIKI will show its SWG091N2 compact WHOLEGARMENT knitting machine that features the company's original SlideNeedle.

Capable of producing small knitted items from safety gloves and compression socks to more sophisticated advanced industrial textile applications such as tubular shields and harnesses, SWG091N2 can knit all of these items in 3D in their entirety without seams.

The company will also display the latest version of the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system. APEX3 offers comprehensive support of the entire process of knit production from planning and design to production and promotion, as well as its capability for virtual sampling. Ultra-realistic simulation capability allows virtual sampling to minimise the costly and resource consuming sample-making process while enhancing presentation quality. (GK)
