Paris - Computerized knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki will exhibit at the Première Vision show in Paris this month where it will once again participate in the “Knitwear Solutions” category for the flatbed knitting sector as the sole machine technologist, following its successful participation in past editions.

On display will be the company’s SVR123SP computerized knitting machine that features a special loop presser bed, capable of producing hybrid inlay fabrics that feature both knit and weave characteristics.

Demand for such unique fabrics are very high across a wide range of applications, says Shima Seiki, from fashion apparel to sportswear, innerwear, outerwear, uniforms and other functional clothing, as well as wearable technology and technical textiles.

Knitted accessory items will also be presented to demonstrate the flexibility of knitting technology. At Première Vision SVR123SP will also feature the iPlating option for expanded capability in inverse plating technique whereby complex jacquard-like patterns can be knitted in plain jersey stitch.

The latest version of Shima Seiki’s 3D design system SDSONE APEX3 will also be exhibited at Première Vision. At the core of the company’s revised “Total Fashion System” concept, APEX3 provides comprehensive support throughout the production 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 the way APEX3 improves on the design evaluation process with its ultrarealistic simulation capability, whereby virtual samples minimize the need for actual samplemaking.

This realizes significant savings in time, cost and material, contributing to smart, speedy and sustainable manufacturing, the company says.

Premiere Vision takes place from 19 to 21 September at the Parc des Expositions de Paris Nord Villepinte. Shima Seiki can be found in Hall 6, Stand 6J26-6K29
