Shima Seiki unveils new i-Plating technique for patterns

Sep '17
Shima Seiki Mfg., Ltd., one of the leading computerised flat knitting machine manufacturer and pioneer in complete garment manufacturing from Wakayama, Japan, has released a new “i-Plating” option on select models in its line of computerised knitting machines. The new plating technique allows for expanded patterning options with greater efficiency.

Unlike conventional plating techniques, i-Plating offers so-called inverse-plating capability in which alternate yarns are both shown on the fabric surface in any specific pattern or design, producing jacquard-like patterns in plain jersey stitch.

I-Plating goes a step further, overcoming current limitations in inverse-plating by offering this capability within the same course and for individual needles for better efficiency and patterning capability.

The new plating technique, i-Plating, is offered exclusively as a factory-installed option on SVR093SP and SVR123SP computerised flat knitting machines. Both machines feature special loop pressers for producing inlay patterns that yield novel knit-weave hybrid fabrics. By combining i-Plating with inlay capability on SVR093SP and SVR123SP, a whole new world of patterning becomes available for truly diverse knit design. (GK)
