Shima Seiki (Hong Kong) Ltd., a subsidiary of leading Japanese computerized knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki Mfg., Ltd. will hold the second edition of its Shima CrossTex private exhibition in Hong Kong in February.

The SHIMA CrossTex exhibition once again presents connectivity as a key theme. This time, Shima Seiki’s SDS­ONE APEX3 3D design system will be presented as the centrepiece of the company’s Total Fashion System concept that revolutionizes the supply chain by connecting the various stages of product planning, production and sales with one another.

By taking advantage of APEX3’s photo­realistic simulation capability, virtual sampling minimizes the need for sample making, effectively reducing time, material and cost from the sampling process.

In addition, virtual samples can be used in pre­sales events to forecast demand for upcoming items, or to collect feedback from potential customers. This information can then be sent back to the planning and production stages for providing optimum inventory of items that are in combination with quick response WHOLEGARMENT knitting, even more accurate last-minute forecasting is possible, or in the case of stock replenishment, just­in­time inventory assures minimal inventory loss and leftover stock, leading to better profit and less waste for realizing production that is smart, speedy and sustainable.
