Shima to showcase hybrid fabrics at Première Vision

Shima Seiki, a leading computerised knitting machine manufacturer of Wakayama, will exhibit at the Première Vision show in Paris this month. It will once again participate in the Knitwear Solutions category for the flatbed knit sector as sole machine technologist, following its successful participation in past editions.

On display will be the SVR093SP shortbed version of its computerised 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, from fashion apparel to sportswear, innerwear, outerwear, uniforms and other functional clothing, as well as technical textiles,” the company reports. Knitted accessory items will also be presented to demonstrate the flexibility of knitting technology.


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 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 minimise the need for actual sample-making. This realises significant savings in time, cost and material, contributing to sustainable manufacturing,” the company adds.
