Shima Seiki, leading computerised knitting machine manufacturer, and its Italian subsidiary Shima Seiki Italia S.p.A., is set to display its latest technological contributions aimed at promoting knitted applications in the field of technical textiles, at the Techtextil expo in Frankfurt, Germany, from May 9 to 12, 2017, in hall 6.1 level 1, stand D51.

The company will display its machineries designed and produced on Shima Seiki’s line-up of advanced computer design systems and computerised flat knitting machines. Shima Seiki’s new SVR123SP flat knitting machine, featuring an extra loop presser bed for a wider range of knitting techniques including inlay, which has gained particular attention in knitted technical textiles with its capability to produce a hybrid knit-weave pattern by inserting yarn into existing knit fabric in a weave fashion, will be displayed.

Wholegarment knitting by Shima Seiki maximises the benefits of shaped knitting even further by expanding that potential to 3 dimensions. Wholegarment knitting is capable of producing knitted items in their entirety on the machine, and allows 3D forms and tubing to be produced without sewing. The seam-free nature also ensures continuity of yarn, allowing functional yarns such as conductive yarns to wrap around the entire body for applications in smart garments and wearable technology. The aforementioned inlay technique for increased potential in technical applications is available with Wholegarment knitting as well. Demonstrating the latest in Wholegarment knitting technology at Techtextil will be the flagship MACH2XS machine that features the company’s original SlideNeedleTM on 4 needle beds and patented spring-loaded full-time sinker system. Capable of Wholegarment knitting in all-needles, MACH2XS offers great flexibility for knitting high-quality Wholegarment products with a seemingly endless variety of knit patterns at very high speed and efficiency, all while minimising dependence upon labour-intensive sewing and linking.

The latest version of Shima Seiki’s SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system will also be available for demonstrations in design and simulation of various technical textiles. Of particular interest is its ultra-realistic 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 decision-making process by minimising the enormous amount of time and cost normally associated with producing actual samples for each variation.
