Shima addresses needs of Bangladeshi market

Shima Seiki, a leading computerised knitting machine manufacturer of Wakayama, is exhibiting at the 15th Dhaka International Textile & Garment Machinery Exhibition (DTG 2018) in Dhaka, Bangladesh, next month, in cooperation with its partner Pacific Associates Ltd. Operating in Bangladesh since 1996, this is the eleventh time the Japanese manufacturer will participate at DTG.

Shima Seiki will be exhibiting its latest solutions to meet the current needs of the Bangladeshi market, as well as advanced solutions for future market needs. A pioneer of Wholegarment knitting technology, Shima Seiki will show its SWG091N2 Wholegarment knitting machine, which provides opportunities for highly flexible production across a wide range of items in a compact, economical package.

New iPlating option

The benchmark SVR123SP features a loop presser bed mounted above the rear needle bed and is capable of inlay technique for producing unique, value added hybrid knit-weave fabrics. In addition, at DTG, the SVR123SP features the new iPlating option, capable of alternating yarn colours in any pattern, producing jacquardlike designs using plain jersey stitch. Plating can be performed within the same course and for individual needles for even greater diversity in knit design.

The SSR series workhorse machine will also be on display, featuring such Shima Seiki innovations as DSCS Digital Stitch Control System, spring-type moveable sinker system, stitch presser, yarn gripper and cutter and takedown comb. “Made in Japan quality, reliability, productivity, user friendliness and cost-performance all combine to satisfy the high expectations of the world's fashion industry,” the company reports. Shima Seiki’s PCAM series computerised cutting machine will also be on display.

3D design system

Also shown will be the SDSONE APEX3 3D design system. At the core of Shima Seiki’s Total Fashion System concept, APEX3 integrates all stages of apparel production into one smooth and efficient workflow from planning and design to production and sales promotion.
