Leading flat knitting solutions provider Shima Seiki Mfg, Ltd of Wakayama, Japan, together with its Korean subsidiary Shima Seiki Korea Inc, will participate in the Preview in Seoul exhibition in Seoul, Korea this month. At the fair, the latest version of the Sdsone Apex series 3D design system, Sdsone Apex4, will make its debut in Korea.

Apex4 boasts simulation processing speeds up to 6 times faster as compared with Apex3. In addition, Apex4 features AI functions for optimised searching among its vast archive of patterns and designs, said Shima Seiki in a press release.

The combination of Shima Seiki's pioneering Wholegarment knitting technology that allows a garment to be produced in its entirety without the need for linking or sewing afterward, along with the Sdsone Apex series 3D design system yields revolutionary game changing flexibility in the knit supply chain to support such trends.

At the core of Shima Seiki's 'Total Fashion System' concept, ultra realistic simulation capability on the Apex series allows virtual sampling to streamline the sample making process, reducing time and cost. With this new manufacturing model, the production cycle can be shortened significantly, realising on-demand production and allowing the product planning stage to be extended for accurate analysis of consumer demand.

Moreover, virtual samples can be used at the retail level to gauge consumer acceptance of upcoming products, data for which can be used for forecasting demand. Such feedback can be used to adjust production and optimise inventory, preventing leftover stock that would otherwise go to waste. If stock runs out midseason, on-demand production capability of Wholegarment knitting can replenish inventory to prevent lost opportunity. In such a way, the Total Fashion System maximises profit while achieving zero leftover stock, zero lost sales opportunity and most importantly zero waste through smart, speedy and sustainable production.
