Shima Seiki’s line-up at Knit-Tech is headed by its workhorse N.SSR 112 garment shaping machine in 14 gauge. N.SSR 112 offers leading technology in an economical yet reliable package. Featuring industry-leading innovations such as the R2CARRIAGE, spring-type moveable sinker, DSCS Digital Stitch Control System, stitch presser, yarn gripper and cutter, and takedown comb.

Shaped collars

Made-in-Japan quality, reliability, productivity, user-friendliness and cost-performance combine to satisfy the high expectations placed on India's exports to the world's fashion industry, and for domestic consumption as well. Shown for the first time is Shima Seiki’s brand new N.SSR 072 computerised jacquard collar machine that can produce shaped collars efficiently based on computer-generated designs.

Design is demonstrated on Shima Seiki’s SDS-ONE APEX4 design system. At the core of the company’s Total Fashion System concept, it 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 minimise the need for actual sample-making, realizing significant savings in time, cost and material. In combination with WHOLEGARMENT  knitting machines, virtual sampling realises a sustainable planning and production base that contributes positively to manufacturing transparency, which has become increasingly important for exports to conscientious consumer markets worldwide.
