Shima Seiki to show latest printing machines at FESPA 2017

Apr '17
Shima Seiki, leading computerised knitting machine manufacturer of Wakayama, Japan, together with its European subsidiary, Shima Seiki Europe, is set to display its latest digital textile printing machines at FESPA 2017, a global event for screen, digital, and textile print, to be held in Hamburg, Germany, from May 8 to 12, 2017, in booth B6-B5.

The company will show SIP-160F3, Shima Seiki’s latest flatbed inkjet printing machine, capable of beautiful full colour printing on a variety of fabrics. Reactive dyes, acid dyes, and pigment inks can be used to support different types of print applications. White colour is now available with pigment ink, allowing printing on fabrics of dark tones. The printing head can be raised or lowered according to thickness of the product, allowing printing on fabrics with 3-dimensional textures, or even directly on finished products. Multi-drop inkjet technology, ink circulation and degassing system, and ink thermoregulation provide efficient and stable printing.

Also on display will be the latest version of Shima Seiki’s SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system, whose colour management system provides accurate simulations of the printed piece for checking before printing on SIP-160F3. APEX3 is also at the core of the company’s “Total Fashion System” concept that supports all aspects throughout the apparel supply chain, by integrating production from product planning and design to production and even sales promotion. Especially effective is its capability to improve on the planning process with Virtual Sampling. Photo-realistic simulation capability allows Virtual Sampling to minimise the costly time- and resource-consuming sample-making process while enhancing presentation quality. At the retail stage, these Virtual Samples allow shoppers to make a selection without having actual samples on hand, which is especially effective in supporting new trends in retail such as ecommerce. Furthermore by taking advantage of on-demand print capability of SIP-160F3, customised production of printed products becomes a reality. (GK)
