SHIMA SEIKI to participate in ITM Texpo Eurasia 2016

Leading computerized knitting machine manufacturer SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD. of Wakayama, Japan will participate in the ITM Texpo Eurasia 2016 exhibition in Istanbul, Turkey in June. A prominent market for SHIMA SEIKI computerized knitting machines with both an established export base to Europe as well as a growing domestic market, Turkey is proving to be a high-potential market for the company’s WHOLEGARMENT® knitting technology.
Accordingly at ITM 2016, SHIMA SEIKI will exhibit a wide range of its products, including new proposals in seam-free WHOLEGARMENT® knitting technology that offers an alternative to labor-intensive manufacturing in Turkey and other international markets.

Featured is the flagship MACH2XS WHOLEGARMENT® knitting machine with original SlideNeedle® on four needle beds and spring-loaded moveable sinkers, as well as the compact SWG091N2 for producing smaller WHOLEGARMENT® items and accessories.

Novel proposals in knit-weave hybrid fabrics will be made on a pair of SRY machines featuring specialized loop presser beds. The SVR workhorse series, touted as the industry benchmark for shaped knitting, will be shown in a variety of gauges, while the SSR series offers industry-leading technology in an economical package. SCG122SN will round out the flat knitting machine lineup with specialized coarse gauge knitting. SHIMA SEIKI’s SIP-series inkjet printing machine will also demonstrate high-speed high-quality printing directly on fabrics and even finished goods.

Demonstrations will be performed on the SDS-ONE 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.

Photo-realistic simulation capability allows Virtual Sampling to minimize the need for actual sample-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost while increasing presentation quality in the sampling process.
