The Leading Magazine for Knitting & Hosiery Technology

Wakayama - Computerized knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki, together with its Korean subsidiary Shima Seiki Korea Inc, will participate in the Preview in Seoul exhibition in Seoul, Korea at the end of this month.

Recent consumer trends such as increased online shopping activity have changed supply chain requirements, with growing demand for mass customization and short turnaround. 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 the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system yields revolutionary game-changing flexibility in the knit supply chain to support such trends.

At Preview in Seoul, the latest version of the APEX3 design system will be on display. At the core of Shima Seiki’s “Total Fashion System” concept, ultra-realistic simulation capability on APEX3 allows Virtual Sampling to minimize the impact that the sample-making process has on current manufacturing in terms of time and cost.

With this new manufacturing model, the production cycle can be shortened to such an extent that on-demand production is possible without being limited to seasonal cycles. APEX3 also supports design and simulation - and consequent time-savings - in a variety of other industries such as circular knitting, weaving, pile weaving and printing.

To further enhance the capabilities of APEX3, Shima Seiki’s new web-based fashion service “staf” (shima trend archive and forecast) is available. staf is dedicated to empowering its members with the means to search and download from a rich stock of information as well as tools to organize that information to aid in fashion planning, design and presentation. staf features an information archive of fashion and colour trends covering the past 50 years, as well as a massive collection of fashion-related content, covering materials, flat sketches, design patterns and collection photos. All this information can be neatly organized on a virtual concept board that can be shared across various devices, improving on planning efficiency significantly.

Preview in Seoul 2017 takes place from 28 to 30August 2017 at COEX A Hall 513, Yeongdong-daero, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, Korea.
