Shima to demonstrate flexibility at Première Vision

Leading computerised knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki, of Wakayama, will exhibit at the Première Vision show in Paris this month. It will once again participate in the Knitwear Solutions category for the flatbed knitting sector, following its successful participation in past editions.

On display will be the company’s SVR123SP computerised knitting machine that features a special loop presser bed, capable of producing hybrid inlay fabrics that feature both knit and weave characteristics. “Demand for such unique fabrics are very high across a wide range of applications, from fashion apparel to sportswear, innerwear, outerwear, uniforms and other functional clothing, as well as wearable technology and technical textiles,” the company explains. Knitted accessory items will also be presented to demonstrate the flexibility of knitting technology.

At Première Vision, SVR123SP will also feature the iPlating option for expanded capability in inverse plating technique whereby complex jacquard-like patterns can be knitted in plain jersey stitch.

The latest version of Shima Seiki’s 3D design system SDSONE APEX3 will also be exhibited at Première Vision. At the core of the company’s revised Total Fashion System concept, APEX3 is designed to provide comprehensive support throughout the production 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 the way APEX3 improves on the design evaluation process with its ultrarealistic simulation capability, whereby virtual samples minimize the need for actual sample making,” the company adds. “This realises significant savings in time, cost and material, contributing to smart, speedy and sustainable manufacturing.”
