Japanese computerised knitting machine manufacturer, Shima Seiki together with its Italian subsidiary is exhibiting for the first time at the ISPO exhibition in Munich, Germany this February at Hall C2, Stand No. 205.
Shima Seiki is exhibiting its SWG091N2 compact Wholegarment knitting machine suited to seam-free knit production in the field of athletic performance wear.
Featuring Shima Seiki's original SlideNeedle, SWG091N2 is capable of flexible production from small knitted items such as gloves and socks to garment-size products.
It can also knit various textures and fabric structures for creating partial compression, spacer fabric and other effects that aid in athletic support and protection and all these items can be knitted in 3D without any seams.
The latest version of Shima Seiki's SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system will also be on display. It is an all-in-one 3D design system that supports all aspects of fashion design and production.
Shima Seiki says the SDS-ONE APEX3 is at the core of its Total Knitting System and Total Fashion System concepts, allowing smooth workflow from planning, design and programming to production and even sales promotion.
APEX 3 also improves on the planning process through photo-realistic simulation capability, effectively reducing time, material and cost from the sampling process with virtual sampling.
Products can also be checked with 3D simulation, such as 3D modeling, 3D fitting and 3D mapping. (AR)
