Shima Seiki will exhibit at Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, October 11 to 13.
Shima Seiki is a flat knitting machinery manufacturer. It will collaborate with a number of partner companies including yarn suppliers and knit manufacturers together in a common booth. These are yarn supplier UPW; yarn supplier and knit manufacturers Shanghai Xinnuo and Yarns & Colors; knit manufacturers Jiaxing Diwei and Jiangsu YangFan.
Shima Seiki will also be demonstrating the synergy formed between its Wholegarment knitting technology and the latest version of its SDS-One APEX3 3D design system. With more production moving to Bangladesh and other Asean nations, demand for automation and labor savings, as well as other new forms of production, is rapidly increasing. So, too, is demand for Shima Seiki’s Wholegarment knitting machines.
Shima Seiki will also exhibit knitwear produced on its latest line of computerised knitting machines, including seam free Wholegarment knitwear that features superior fit, comfort and draping characteristics, as well as samples knitted on the SRY inlay machine featuring hybrid knit-weave structures.
Of special note are samples knitted on its SVR SP-type machines, which feature inverse-plating technique on every needle. When combined with inlay technique made possible with the machine’s loop pressers, as well as sinker patterns made possible with spring type moveable sinkers, extremely unique and novel patterns are produced.
