Wakayama - Shima Seiki Italia, the Italian subsidiary of Japanese flat knitting solutions provider Shima Seiki will hold a private exhibition in Romania this month in conjunction with its Romanian sales agent Knittex.
On display in the city of Sibiu will be a comprehensive lineup of Shima Seiki’s computerized flat knitting machines that include new machinery to be shown for the first time in Romania.
MACH2S is a flexible WHOLEGARMENT knitting machine that is capable of both shaped knitting in allneedles and WHOLEGARMENT production in halfgauge.
The SWG091N2 series WHOLEGARMENT knitting machine is now available in 5G and is suited to the production of accessory items as well as childrenswear and smaller size garments, all without the need for linking or sewing afterward. The SRY and N.SVRSP machines are both feature loop presser beds capable of inlay knitting, yielding hybrid knitweave fabrics that open up unprecedented knitting opportunities. The new N.SVRSP machines furthermore features iPlating inverseplating capability for producing jacquard-like patterns in plain jersey stitch.
The new N.SIR183C ultrafine gauge long-bed machine and SIR122SV 5G coarse gauge machines demonstrate the versatile range of Shima Seiki shaping technology.
Also on display will be the latest version of its SDSONE APEX3 3D design system. The APEX series is at the core of SHIMA SEIKI’s “Total Fashion System” concept, made possible through its comprehensive support of the knit apparel production process from planning and production to sales promotion. Furthermore its capability for virtual sampling is especially effective in streamlining the production process.
Ultrarealistic simulation capability allows the use of virtual samples for evaluating design variations without producing actual samples for each variation, thereby minimizing the time, cost and resources normally required with sample making, supporting smart, speedy and sustainable apparel production.
The show takes place from 23 to 25 October at the Hotel Mercure Sibiu Airport, Romania.
