Shima’s expertise on show in New York

Shima Seiki, of Wakayama, will exhibit at the Première Vision show in New York in July 2017. It will once again participate in the new “Manufacturing” area dedicated to technical and logistical manufacturing solutions.

“Shima Seiki offers timely solutions for apparel companies whose supply chains span the globe,” the company explains. “Problematic areas, such as ineffective planning, prolonged lead-time and subsequent profit loss, as well as limitations in value-added manufacturing, are all addressed by the ever-capable combination of the Wholegarment knitting machine and SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system.”

“The same star-combination is also effective in reinforcing the Made in USA movement for returning garment production back on-shore, by supporting new supply chain requirements brought on by recent consumer trends, such as increase in online shopping activity, with growing demand for mass customisation and short turnaround.”

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 series Wholegarment knitting machine on display at Première Vision, the manufacturer reports. Wholegarment knitting, together with the aforementioned SDS-ONE APEX3, aim to form a synergy that provides revolutionary game-changing flexibility in the knit supply chain.

Ultra-realistic simulation capability on APEX3 allows Virtual Sampling to minimise the time- and cost-impact that the sample-making process has on current manufacturing. “With this new manufacturing model, the production cycle can be shortened to such an extent that on-demand production is possible without being limited to seasonal cycles,” the manufacturer explains.
