Shima to present comprehensive line-up at Febratex

Leading flat knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki, of Wakayama, will exhibit at the Brazilian Textile Industry Fair (Febratex 2018) this month. On display will be the cutting edge in computerised flat knitting technology, represented by the latest Wholegarment machines and design system.

The flagship MACH2XS series features the company’s original SlideNeedle on four needle beds and spring type sinker system supporting a wide range of quality Wholegarment knitting. The versatile MACH2S is capable of both Wholegarment knitting and conventional shaping.

The new compact SWGN2 series Wholegarment knitting machine offers a wide variety of production options, as well as the capability for producing industrial textiles.

SVR123SP features a special loop presser bed and is capable of producing unique woven-like hybrid fabrics, as well as technical textiles. At Febratex it will demonstrate its capability by knitting shoe uppers.

The SVR and SSR workhorse machines set the industry benchmark for shaping machines in the tradition of Shima Seiki’s legendary SES and SSG machines. SFF provides quality semi-jacquard knitting with tandem capability for added flexibility. The SFGI glove knitting machine rounds out the line-up.

Demonstrations will also be performed on Shima Seiki’s SDSONE APEX3 3D design system that is at the core of the company’s Total Knitting System concept. APEX3 integrates knit 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 APEX3’s capability to improve on the planning process with Virtual Sampling. Photorealistic simulation capability minimises the need for sample-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost from the sampling process,” the company reports.
