Shima Seiki will hold an 'Advanced 3D Knitting Seminar & Workshop' during the opening of its new showroom and training centre at the California Market Center in Los Angeles on September 21, 2015.

On display will be cutting edge flat knitting technologies, represented by the latest Wholegarment machines, computerised flat knitting machines, glove knitting machines and design systems.

A Shima Seiki press release stated that the new location will be a showcase for the company's latest offerings in computerised flat knitting technology along with a facility for training.

Some of the equipment installed includes the flagship MACH2XS which features Shima Seiki's original SlideNeedle on four needle beds, which offers higher efficiency and greater stability while knitting.

According to the Japanese company, the compact SWG-N2 series Wholegarment knitting machine offers increased colour capacity as well as the capability for producing industrial textiles.

“SRY123LP features loop presser beds and is capable of producing fabrics with woven textures as well as technical textiles,” it added.

“The Yarn Unwinding Option is an essential tool for industrial textile applications, providing smooth and stable yarn feed of material that is normally difficult to feed into knitting machines, such as metallic and monofilament yarns,” the company stated.

Conventional knitting machines such as the compact SSR112 and workhorse SIR122 machine, as well as the latest in legendary glove knitting technology, the SFG-I will also be on display.

Also on show is the SDS-ONE APEX3 system that is at the core of the company's 'Total Fashion System' concept.

With comprehensive support of the knit supply chain, the APEX3 integrates knit production into one smooth and efficient workflow from planning and design to machine programming, production and even sales promotion.

Virtual sampling through photo-realistic simulation minimises the need for sample-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost from the sampling process.

The APEX3 also supports design and simulation in various other industries such as circular knitting, weaving, pile weaving and printing.

Also on display will be the latest knit samples including SHIMA SEIKI's original 2016 Spring & Summer collection.

Shima Seiki further added that other proposals on display range from novel high-fashion to sustainable fast fashion, weave-knit hybrid fabrics and even technical textiles. (AR)
