As strong candidate for China-Plus-One manufacturing, Bangladesh has seen a significant increase in knit production for export purposes in recent years. At the same time, buyers are demanding quicker turnaround for orders with more variety.
Adding to that the current demand for higher wages and improved working conditions, and a formula is created for major transfer of technology from manually operated knitting machines to computerized knitting machines.
At DTG 2014 SHIMA SEIKI will be exhibiting its latest solutions to meet those current needs, as well as advanced innovations in preparation for market needs in the foreseeable future. In such a way, SHIMA SEIKI intends to distinguish itself from its competition by presenting itself as an innovative company with the strength and resource to lead the Bangladeshi knitting industry into the future.
SHIMA SEIKI’s intarsia specialty machine MACH2SIR offers tremendously high productivity worthy of its “MACH” name. With 40 intarsia carriers, MACH2SIR features the largest number of intarsia feeders available.
Maximum knitting speed of 1.4 meters per second in combination with the new R2CARRIAGE System which achieves quicker carriage returns after each course, dramatically improves efficiency and productivity in intarsia production.
Previously, programming for knitting with so many intarsia carriers would have been overwhelming, but that issue is solved with the latest automatic yarn carrier setting software on SDS-ONE APEX3 design system.
Featuring SHIMA SEIKI’s original SlideNeedle, SCG122SN is a computerized knitting machine specializing in the production of coarse gauge knitwear.
In addition to such priorities as speed, efficiency and consistent quality, market demand reveals that the computerization of traditionally hand-knitted low-gauge knitwear must place additional emphasis on fabric texture and feel. The SlideNeedle helps to achieve just that, by allowing the SCG122SN 3 gauge machine to produce knitwear with robust, handcrafted texture ranging from 2 to 4 gauge.
Developed as the new standard for computerized shaped knitting, SSR112 is SHIMA SEIKI’s most affordable model. High productivity is achieved with a maximum knitting speed of 1.2 meters per second, as well as with the R2CARRIAGE System that achieves quicker carriage returns.
SSR112 also carries over all the technological achievements for which SHIMA SEIKI is made famous: DSCS Digital Stitch Control System; full-time spring-loaded sinker system; stitch presser; yarn gripper and cutter; takedown comb; and more. Made-in-Japan quality, reliability, productivity, user-friendliness and cost-performance combine to satisfy the high expectations of the world’s fashion industry.
