SHIMA SEIKI to participate in 15th Tech Fashion

SDS-ONE APEX3 - 3D Apparel Design System (c) 2017 Shima Seiki
Leading Japanese computerized knitting machine manufacturer SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD., together with its Brazilian repre- sentative BRASTEMA TECNOLOGIA TEXTIL LTDA., will participate in the 15th Tech Fashion shows, a series of private exhibitions held at three locations in Brazil during July. The exhibitions will be a showcase for the company’s latest com- puterized flat knitting technology, presented through fashion shows as well as machine exhibits at each venue.

On display will be traditional shaping machines, such as the benchmark SVR series, the workhorse SIR series and eco- nomical SSR series as well as the novel SRY machine capable of hybrid knit-weave fabrics. Most noteworthy however is the flagship MACH2XS WHOLEGARMENT® knitting machine. Featuring such innovations as the original SlideNeedleTM on four needle beds as well as the company’s patented spring-loaded moveable sinker system, MACH2XS can knit beautiful, high-quality 3D Items with dimensional structures and details that are uniquely WHOLEGARMENT®, all with very high effi- ciency while minimizing dependence upon labour-intensive sewing and linking.

These qualities of WHOLEGARMENT® knit production are maximized in combination with the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system. At the core of the company’s “Total Fashion System” concept, APEX3 provides comprehensive support through- out the apparel supply chain, integrating production into one smooth and efficient workflow from yarn development, product planning and design to production and even sales promotion. Especially effective is APEX3’s capability to improve on the design and evaluation process with Virtual Sampling. Ultra-realistic simulation capability on APEX3 allows Virtual Sampling to minimize the significant amount of time, cost and material spent during the sample-making process. With this new manufacturing model, the production cycle can be shortened to such an extent that on-demand production can revolutionize the supply chain to support mass-customization and increasing consumer demand for e-commerce applications.

The fashion show will feature the newest creations in WHOLEGARMENT® knitwear by a local knit designer.
