The new SVR123SP machine features a loop presser bed and is capable of producing unique knit fabrics with woven textures as well as technical textiles, the company reports. The SSR112 machine features Shima Seiki benchmark technology in a compact, economical package. Also featured are SIP-series flatbed-type on-demand inkjet printing machines using reactive- and acid-dyes, as well as pigment ink (featuring new white pigment ink) and P-CAM computerised cutting machine.


Demonstrations will also be performed on the SDS-ONE APEX3 design system that is at the core of the company’s Total Knitting System concept. With comprehensive support of the knit supply chain, APEX3 integrates knit production into one smooth and efficient workflow from planning and design to machine programming, production and even sales promotion.

“Photo-realistic simulation capability allows Virtual Sampling to minimise the need for actual sample-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost in the sampling process. APEX3 also supports design and simulation in various other industries such as circular knitting, weaving, pile weaving and printing,” the company reports.
