Leading flat knitting solutions provider Shima Seiki, of Wakayama, Japan, together with its Vietnamese sales representative Phenitex will jointly hold private exhibitions in Vietnam, in Hanoi later this month and in Ho Chi Minh City in November.

On display will be the new MACH2VS Wholegarment knitting machine. The flexible and versatile MACH2VS is evolved from the MACH2S and carries on that machine’s capability to knit in a range of production styles. As a conventional shaping machine, it is capable of all-needle knitting in its available range of 8 to 16 gauge, while Wholegarment knitwear can be produced in half-gauge fabrics.

The range of usable yarn and material has increased as well, thanks to i-DSCS+DTC as standard equipment. The R2CARRIAGE system that yields quicker carriage returns for greater efficiency, now features a lighter carriage for even higher productivity. MACH2VS is even capable of gaugeless knitting whereby a number of different gauges can be knit into a single garment. A new full-colour touchscreen monitor also improves on operator ergonomics.

3D design system

Demonstrations will also be performed on Shima Seiki’s latest version of its SDS-ONE APEX series 3D design system. SDS-ONE APEX4 makes its debut in Vietnam boasting processing speeds for Wholegarment programming and simulation up to six times faster as compared to APEX3.

In addition, APEX4 features AI functions for optimised searching among its vast archive of patterns and designs. At the core of the company’s Total Knitting System concept, APEX4 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 APEX4’s capability to improve on the planning process with Virtual Sampling. Photorealistic simulation capability minimises the need for sample-making, effectively reducing time, cost and material from the sampling process to achieve smart, speedy and sustainable production,” the company says.

On display

At its Vietnam Hanoi Private Show, which takes place at the Melia Hanoi Hotel, from 21-23 October, Shima Seiki will present its MACH2VS 14G Wholegarment knitting machine and the SDS-ONE APEX4 3D apparel design system.

During its Vietnam Ho Chi Minh Private Show, at the Shima Seiki Vietnam office, from 6-8 November, the company will exhibit its MACH2VS 14G Wholegarment knitting machine and the SDS-ONE APEX4 3D apparel design system, as well as the PCAM183S computerised cutting machine.
