Shima to exhibit latest technology in New York

Shima Seiki, a leading flat knitting machinery manufacturer of Wakayama, will exhibit at the Première Vision show in New York this month. It will once again participate in the Manufacturing area dedicated to technical and logistical manufacturing solutions.

“Given current conditions in garment manufacturing especially in the US, Shima Seiki’s proposals at Première Vision New York should be of timely significance,” the company reports. “Reinforcing the Made in USA movement for returning garment production back onshore, consumer trends such as increase in online shopping activity have also changed supply chain requirements, with growing demand for mass customisation and short turnaround.”

“The combination of Shima Seiki’s Wholegarment knitting technology and SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system offers an ideal manufacturing model to support such new demand in e-commerce and customisation.”

Because of their capability to produce elegant items in their entirety in 3D without the need for sewing or linking, Wholegarment knitting machines realise high-quality quick response production thanks to reduced lead times, as well as reduced dependence on labour. These qualities are maximised with the latest MACH2XS machine on display at Première Vision.

Wholegarment knitting, together with the aforementioned SDS-ONE APEX3, form a synergy that aims to provide greater flexibility in the knit supply chain. Ultra-realistic simulation capability on APEX3 allows Virtual Sampling to minimise the time, cost, energy and material that the sample-making process requires with current manufacturing. With this new manufacturing model, on-demand knitting realises optimised inventory, eliminating waste from the production cycle for truly sustainable fashion.
