Shima’s MACH2XS to star in Brazilian showcase

Leading Japanese computerised knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki, together with its Brazilian representative Brastema Tecnologia Textil, will participate in the 15th Tech Fashion shows, a series of private exhibitions held at three locations in Brazil during July. The exhibitions will be a showcase for the company’s latest computerised flat knitting technology, presented through fashion shows as well as machine exhibits at each venue.

On display will be traditional shaping machines, such as the benchmark SVR series, the workhorse SIR series and economical SSR series, as well as the novel SRY machine capable of hybrid knit-weave fabrics.

The main focus of the showcase will be the flagship MACH2XS Wholegarment knitting machine. Featuring such innovations as the original SlideNeedle on four needle beds, as well as the company’s patented spring-loaded moveable sinker system, MACH2XS can knit high-quality 3D items with dimensional structures and details, all with high efficiency while minimising dependence upon labour-intensive sewing and linking.

“These qualities of Wholegarment knit production are maximised in combination with the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system”, the company reports. “At the core of the company’s Total Fashion System concept, APEX3 provides comprehensive support throughout the apparel 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 APEX3’s capability to improve on the design and evaluation process with Virtual Sampling. Ultra-realistic simulation capability on APEX3 allows Virtual Sampling to minimise the significant amount of time, cost and material spent during the sample-making process.”

With this new manufacturing model, the production cycle can be shortened to such an extent that on-demand production can revolutionise the supply chain to support mass-customisation and increasing consumer demand for e-commerce applications, the manufacturer explains.
