Leading Japanese computerised knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki, together with its Brazilian representative Brastema Tecnologia Textil, will participate in the Tech Fashion shows, a series of private exhibitions held at three locations in Brazil in July and August. 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 SCG122SN coarse gauge machine and workhorse SSR112, as well as the SRY123LP machine with loop presser beds capable of hybrid knitweave fabrics. Wholegarment production is demonstrated by the versatile MACH2S Wholegarment knitting machine that can be used for both Wholegarment knitting and shaped knitting applications, as well as the compact SWG091N2 Wholegarment knitting machine that is especially suited to knitting accessories and smaller items.

The potential of each of these knitting machines are maximised in combination with the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system. 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. Ultrarealistic simulation capability on APEX3 allows Virtual Sampling to minimise the significant amount of time, cost and material spent during the sample-making process,” the company reports. “With this new manufacturing model, the production cycle can be shortened to such an extent that on-demand production can revolutionize the supply chain to support mass customisation and increasing consumer demand for ecommerce applications.”

The fashion show will also feature the newest creations in Wholegarment and other knitwear by a local knit designer.

Tech Fashion, Caxias do Sul will take place on 17 July at the Brastema Tecnologia Textil. Tech Fashion, Jacutinga will take place on 30 July at the Fastmaq. Finally, Tech Fashion, Águas de Lindóia will be held from 31 July to 1 August at the Oscar Inn Hotel.
