Leading Japanese flat knitting technologist Shima Seiki, together with its Argentinian representative Temco Argentina S.A., will participate in the Simatex exhibition in Buenos Aires, Argentina later this month.

Shima will exhibit a wide range of products, including proposals in seam-free WHOLEGARMENT knitting technology as 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. N.SVR122, shown in 5 gauge, is the industry benchmark for shaped knitting, featuring such innovations as the R2CARRIAGE, WideGauge knitting, spring-type moveable sinkers, DSCS Digital Stitch Control System, stitch presser, yarn gripper and cutter, and takedown comb.

N.SSR112 offers 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. SDS-ONE APEX4 provides comprehensive support throughout the supply chain, integrating production into one smooth and efficient workflow from yarn development, product planning and design, to machine programming, production and even sales promotion.

Especially effective is the way SDS-ONE APEX4 improves on the product planning and design evaluation process by replacing physical samples with digital prototypes based on photo-realistic simulations. These virtual samples realise significant savings in time, cost and material, contributing to sustainable manufacturing.
