Shima Seiki Italia, Italian subsidiary of leading Japanese flat knitting solutions provider Shima Seiki, in conjunction with its Romanian sales agent Knittex Rom, will hold a private exhibition in Romania this month, in the city of Sibiu. On display will be a comprehensive line up of Shima Seiki’s computerised flat knitting machines that include new machinery to be shown for the first time in Romania.

MACH2S is a flexible Wholegarment knitting machine that is capable of both shaped knitting in all-needles and Wholegarment production in half-gauge.

The SWG091N2 series Wholegarment knitting machine is now available in 5G and is suited to the production of accessory items as well as childrenswear and smaller size garments, all without the need for linking or sewing afterward.

The SRY and N.SVRSP machines are both feature loop presser beds capable of inlay knitting, yielding hybrid knit-weave fabrics that open up unprecedented knitting opportunities. The new N.SVRSP machines furthermore features i-Plating inverse-plating capability for producing jacquardlike patterns in plain jersey stitch. The new N.SIR183-C ultrafine gauge long-bed machine and SIR122-SV 5G coarse gauge machines demonstrate the versatile range of Shima Seiki shaping technology.

3D design system

Also on display will be the latest version of its SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system. The APEX series is at the core of Shima Seiki’s Total Fashion System concept, made possible through its comprehensive support of the knit apparel production process from planning and production to sales promotion.

“Furthermore its capability for virtual sampling is especially effective in streamlining the production process. Ultrarealistic simulation capability allows the use of virtual samples for evaluating design variations without producing actual samples for each variation, thereby minimising the time, cost and resources normally required with sample-making, supporting smart, speedy and sustainable apparel production,” the company reports.
