Shima Seiki Mfg, Ltd has released next generation of its Sdsone Apex series 3D computer graphic apparel design system. Introduced to the textile industry at ITMA 2019 as a prototype, the 4th generation of its series—Sdsone Apex4—is officially launched with updated hardware & software for improved efficiency as compared to previous generation Sdsone Apex3.

Processing speeds for programming and simulation have undergone up to a 6x increase to meet ever increasing demand for quickly responding to rapidly changing market needs. Comprehensively equipped with dedicated functions specialising in the planning and design of fashion apparel and other textiles, Apex4 features state-of-the-art technology such as the latest AI functions used in image searching for quick and accurate planning and design.

At the core of Shima Seiki’s ‘Total Fashion System’ concept, Apex4 provides comprehensive support of the apparel production process from planning, design and production to sales promotion and retail sales through digital communication. Its capability for virtual sampling is especially effective in streamlining the production process. Super real simulation being so realistic, can be mistaken for the real thing, allows the use of virtual samples to replace actual samples in evaluating design variations, thereby minimising the tremendous time, cost and material normally required with sample making.

Moreover, data for programming flat knitting machines is prepared simultaneously for smooth transition to production. Consequently, the entire production cycle can be shortened significantly, realising on-demand production and allowing the product planning stage to be extended for increased accuracy in analysing consumer demand and trends.

Furthermore, 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 amount and optimise inventory, preventing leftover stock that would otherwise go to waste. If stock runs out mid-season, on-demand production capability of Wholegarment knitting can replenish inventory to prevent lost opportunity. For ecommerce applications, even zero inventory business can become a reality. 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.

Shima Seiki of Wakayama, Japan is a leading solutions provider in the textile industry. With complete systems integration from planning, design and production to sales promotion and retail sales, Shima Seiki has been dedicating its products and services worldwide through continuous innovation.
