Shima Seiki to exhibit latest technology at Knitwear Solutions

Leading computerized knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki will exhibit at the Première Vision show in Paris this month 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 Shima Seiki’s flagship MACH2XS Wholegarment knitting machine that features the company’s original SlideNeedle on 4 needle beds and patented spring-loaded full-time sinker system. According to the company, MACH2XS is the crystallization of all of Shima Seiki’s experience and know-how as a world-leader in computerized flat knitting machine technology and pioneer in Wholegarment knitting, that allows a garment to be produced in its entirety without the need for linking or sewing afterward.

Also exhibited will be the latest version of the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system.
