WholeGarment computerized flat knitting machine
Specially configured for WHOLEGARMENT® knitting with 4 needle beds and an additional loop presser bed, Shima Seiki’s SWG®-X features vast improvements over the original SWG®-series machines. With a completely new design based on FIRST® “next generation” technology, the SWG®-X is capable of producing beautifully shaped, high-quality WHOLEGARMENT® products which conform perfectly to the body for improved comfort and a more elegant silhouette.
These are made possible through such innovations as the SlideNeedle™ and Pulldown Device, which adjusts takedown tension independently for front and back bodies, allowing unprecedented three-dimensional shaping control.
The addition of 8G and 15G versions further enhances the SWG®173-X’s capability, ranging from high-quality middle-gauge knitting to highly refined ultrafine gauge applications.
