Leading Japanese textile solutions provider, Shima Seiki of Wakayama, Japan, has announced that it will exhibit its latest range of textile machines, at the upcoming JEC World 2020 exposition, in hall 6, booth P28. JEC World, the leading international composites show, will be held from March 3-5, 2020, at Paris Nord Villepinte, halls 5 & 6, in France.

Shima Seiki, for the first time at JEC World, will display a prototype weft knitting machine under development that is capable of multi­axial insertion. Fabrics produced on the prototype machine use inlay technique for the production of hybrid textiles that combine the stretch characteristics of knitted fabrics with the stability of woven textiles, suited to various technical applications. Warp insertion further expands the capability of the machine to produce 3D­shaped carbon fibre and composite preforms directly on the machine. This is made possible because flat knitting as a textile production method is capable of producing end products that are shaped­to­form and with added thickness. Therefore savings in post­processing time, cost, material, and labour as compared to current methods of preform production are immense, realising efficient and sustainable production. Shima Seiki’s own yarn unwinding technology is also used for optimum yarn feed and tension for use with technical yarns that are otherwise difficult to knit, according to a media statement by the company.

Also on display will be the P­CAM131 multi­ply computerised cutting machine (NC cutting machine). Shima Seiki’s fast, efficient and reliable P­CAM series computerised cutting machines are known for their innovative functions and Made­in­Japan quality, and boast the largest market share in Japan. P­CAM131’s multi­ply cutting capability allows up to 1 inch (33mm) of fabric or material to be cut. At JEC World P­CAM131 is shown in its most compact form, featuring a cutting area of 1,300 mm x 1,700 mm, with option for expansion. A knife sharpening system produces a sharp, strong blade every time. Strong, robust components permit quicker response times for knife movement and more accurate cutting of composites and other industrial materials.

Demonstrations will also be performed on Shima Seiki’s new SDS­ONE APEX4 design system, the fourth generation of its series and the most powerful, most efficient APEX to date. Processing speeds for programming and simulation are improved by up to 600 per cent compared to the previous­generation SDS­ONE APEX3, for quicker response especially in virtual sampling. Virtual sampling based on ultra­realistic simulation improves on the design evaluation process by minimising the need for actual sample­making in prototyping. This realises significant savings in time, cost and material, further contributing to sustainable manufacturing. Once a design is approved, production data can be created for both knitting machines and cutting machines.
