Shima Seiki, and its Portuguese subsidiary, Shima Seiki Portugal, Unipessoal, will participate in the third edition of the MAQUISHOES machinery, technology, and accessories for the footwear industry fair in Matosinhos, Portugal, in hall 5, booth 43, from November 7-9, 2019. Shima Seiki is a manufacturer in the computerised flatbed knitting machine industry.

The global shoe industry is adopting various textile and material technologies in footwear applications, especially in the area of fit, comfort and functionality. Working off the recent trend in knitted shoe uppers in the athletic footwear market, Shima Seiki proposes knitted fabrics to the general footwear market as an alternative to the prevailing material in this field—leather. To that effect, the company will be showcasing the latest applications of computerised flat knitting technology to demonstrate its contributions in this field.

On display will be its compact SVR093SP machine specially developed for shoe­upper manufacturing. SVR093SP features a dedicated loop presser bed mounted above the rear needle bed. This permits full use of inlay technique for the production of hybrid fabrics that feature both knit and weave characteristics, suited to shoe upper applications that require form­fitting function, comfort, flexibility, breathability as well as strength and stiffness. Also on display will be the SWG091N2 Wholegarment knitting machine featuring Shima Seiki’s original SlideNeedle technology. This largest of the SWG­N2 series allows shoe uppers, socks, gloves, tights as well as other footwear and legwear to be knit in one entire piece without the need for sewing afterward, according to Shima Seiki.

Shima Seiki’s new SDS­ONE APEX4 3D design system will also be available for demonstrations in design and simulation suited to shoe production. Of particular interest is APEX4’s ultra­realistic simulation capability that realises virtual sampling. When countless variations must be evaluated before arriving at a final design, virtual product samples can be used to streamline the decision­making process by minimising the enormous amount of time and cost normally associated with producing actual samples for each variation. The sustainability factor is also undeniable considering the amount of material normally gone to waste in the sampling stage. APEX4 makes further contribution to this effort with programming and simulation processing speeds of up to six times that of the previous APEX3 system.
