Shima Seiki Italia S.p.A., Italian subsidiary of leading Japanese computerised knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki, is set to exhibit at the 84th edition of the Pitti Immagine Filati exhibition in Florence, Italy, in booth C18/19. The international event for the knitting yarn industry will be held from January 23-25, 2019, at Firenze, Italy.

The company will participate in the Fashion At Work section of the exhibition aimed at appealing to the technical and creative interests of visitors by providing hardware and software solutions for design, manufacturing, and processing of knitted goods, according to a media statement by Shima Seiki.

On display will be the SVR123SP computerised knitting machine that features a special loop presser bed, capable of producing hybrid inlay fabrics with both knit and weave characteristics. Demand for such novel fabrics are very high across a wide range of applications, from fashion apparel to sportswear, innerwear, outerwear, uniforms, and other functional clothing, as well as home furnishing and technical textiles. Knitted accessory items will also be presented to demonstrate the flexibility of knitting technology. SVR123SP at Pitti Filati furthermore features the new i­Plating option, capable of alternating yarn colours in any pattern, producing jacquard­like designs using plain jersey stitch. Plating can be performed within the same course and for individual needles for even greater diversity in knit design.

The latest version of Shima Seiki’s 3D design system SDS­ONE APEX3 will also be exhibited at Pitti Filati. At the core of the company’s ‘Total Fashion System’ concept, APEX3 provides comprehensive support throughout the product supply chain, integrating production into one smooth and efficient workflow from yarn development, product planning and design to production and even sales promotion. Especially effective is the way APEX3 improves on the design evaluation process with its ultra­realistic simulation capability, whereby virtual samples minimise the need for actual sample-making. This realises significant savings in time, cost, and material, contributing to sustainable manufacturing. (GK)
