Shima Seiki to show latest knitting machines at ITM 2018
Shima Seiki knitting machinery manufacturer is set to participate in ITM 2018 textile machinery expo, which will be held from April 14 to 17, 2018, in Istanbul, Turkey, in booth hall 7, stand 710C. Turkey is a prominent market for Shima Seiki computerised knitting machines with both an established export base to Europe as well as a growing domestic market.

The company will exhibit a wide range of its products, including proposals in seam­free Wholegarment knitting technology that offers an alternative to labour-intensive manufacturing in Turkey and other international markets. Featured is the flagship MACH2XS
Wholegarment knitting machine with original SlideNeedle on four needle beds and spring­loaded moveable sinkers with expanded patterning capability, the MACH2X machine in 18G for producing refined ultrafine gauge items, as well as the compact SWG091N2 for producing smaller Wholegarment items and accessories.

Novel proposals in knit­weave hybrid fabrics will be made on SRY machines featuring double loop presser beds. The SVR workhorse series, touted as the industry benchmark for shaped knitting, will be shown in different knitting widths and gauges, including the SVR123SP model with a single loop presser bed and similar capability as SRY.

The SSR series offers industry­leading technology in an economical package, while the SCG122SN will round out the flat knitting machine line-up with specialised coarse gauge knitting. Also on display are the SFG­I glove knitting machine, SIP­series inkjet printing machine and P­CAM series cutting machine, showcasing Shima Seiki’s comprehensive capability for innovation as textile machinery manufacturer.

Demonstrations will be performed on the SDS­ONE APEX3 design system that is at the core of the company’s “Total Fashion System” concept. With comprehensive support of the knit supply chain, APEX3 integrates every stage from planning and design to machine programming, production and even sales promotion into one smooth and efficient workflow.

In addition, Shima Seiki will present its virtual showroom technology at ITM, based on virtual 3D models wearing realistic simulations of knitwear created on APEX3. The company proposes its virtual showroom in hopes to reduce time and cost as well as material necessary for the designer to produce collections and other costs required to organise formal presentation.
