Leading computerized knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki of Wakayama, Japan will participate in the SIMATEX exhibition in Buenos Aires, Argentina beginning this month.

Shima will exhibit a wide range of its products, including proposals in seam-free WHOLEGARMENT knitting technology that offers an alternative to labour-intensive manufacturing in the South American market.

Three MACH2VS machines, capable of knitting WHOLEGARMENT knitwear using every other needle, will be shown in 12, 16 and 18 gauge configurations. The N.SVR workhorse series improves on the SVR series, resetting the industry benchmark for shaped knitting.

The N.SVR123SP featuring a special loop presser bed that can produce hybrid inlay fabrics with both knit and weave characteristics. Shown in 18 gauge at the Shima Seiki booth, N.SVR123SP will also feature the special i-Plating option, capable of alternating yarn colours in any pattern, producing jacquard-like designs using plain jersey stitch for even greater diversity in knit design.

N.SSR112 improves on the SSR series and continues to offer industry-leading technology in an economical yet reliable package made in Japan.

Demonstrations will be performed on Shima Seiki's SDS-ONE APEX4 design system. At the core of the company’s Total Fashion System concept, SDS-ONE APEX4 provides 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 SDS-ONE APEX4 improves on the design evaluation process with its ultra-realistic simulation capability, whereby virtual samples minimize the need for actual sample-making. This realizes significant savings in time, cost and material, contributing to sustainable manufacturing.
