Shima Seiki, the leading computerised knitting machine manufacturer of Wakayama, Japan, together with its Korean subsidiary, Shima Seiki Korea, will participate in the Korea International Garment Machinery and Textile Industry Fair (GT Korea) exhibition, in booth E21. The expo will be held from November 14-16, 2018, at Kintex hall 9B in Korea.

With growing interest in factory automation in the Korean textile industry, Shima Seiki answers the call by presenting its new Total Fashion System at GT Korea. The combination of Shima Seiki’s pioneering Wholegarment knitting technology that allows a garment to be produced in its entirety without the need for linking or sewing afterward, along with virtual sampling capability on its SDS­ONE APEX3 3D design system yields revolutionary game­changing flexibility in the knit supply chain to support current and upcoming trends, according to Shima Seiki.

On the production side, the flagship MACH2XS features Shima Seiki’s original SlideNeedle on four needle beds and spring­loaded moveable sinkers for knitting a wide variety of high­quality fine gauge Wholegarment knitwear in all needles. MACH2S is a versatile V­bed machine that supports production ranging from conventional shaped knitting in all needles to Wholegarment knitting using every other needle. The SWG­N2 series compact Wholegarment machine line-up offers flexible production of a variety of items such as gloves, socks, leggings, hats, mufflers and even childrenswear, as well as technical textiles.

Also on display will be the SDS­ONE APEX3 3D design system, positioned at the core of the Total Fashion System. APEX3 integrates all stages of apparel production into one smooth and efficient workflow through comprehensive support from planning and design to production and sales promotion. With ultra­realistic product simulations, APEX3 is also capable of virtual sampling that minimises the costly time­ and resource­consuming sample­making process. Virtual samples can also be used in retail as well, and combined with the on­demand capability of Wholegarment knitting machines, such new trends as mass­customisation and ecommerce can be supported through a smart, speedy, and sustainable production process.
