To celebrate its 30th anniversary of UK subsidiary, Shima Seiki Europe, the well known flat knitting machine manufacturer plans to hold a private exhibition at its offices in Derbyshire this month. The event will recall the 30 years of sales and service in the UK. The company plans to display technology in the form of an ‘After-Show’ exhibition much like the previous month’s outstanding show at the ITMA Milan, Italy. The show consolidates the company’s exclusive WHOLEGARMENT knitting technology, which coincidentally celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.
The exhibition will highlight the company’s current line of cutting-edge computerised flat knitting technology. Shima Seiki’s original Slide Needle on four needle beds is featured through the flagshipMACH2X series. The limelight at Shima’s ITMA booth, the new MACH2XS machine will also be showcased to mark Shima Seiki’s original spring-type sinker system. SWG-N2 series compact Wholegarment knitting machine will also be demonstrated. It is designed to offer increased colour capacity and the capability for producing industrial textiles.
Among others the UK exhibition will also showcase SIP-series flatbed-type on-demand inkjet printing machine and P-CAM cutting machine which were also displayed at ITMA. The SDS-ONE APEX3 design system, which is the company’s core Total Knitting System concept will be exhibited.
