On display will be Shima Cutting Solutions, a fully integrated cutting system that offers smooth workflow from design and programming to fabric spreading, labelling, cutting and pickup of cut parts.

At CISMA 2019 Shima Cutting Solutions will be demonstrated through a display of the company’s CAD/CAM line-up consisting of the SDS-ONE APEX4 design system, P-SPR2K fabric spreading machine with labelling option, P-CAM161 multiply computerised cutting machine, and pickup table with pickup projector.

SDS-ONE APEX4 is a brand-new design system shown for the first time in China. Fabric simulation capability in circular knitting, flat knitting, weaving, pile weaving and printing is designed to reduce sampling time, cost and material. New PGM software features improved interface and up to a 40% increase in productivity, compared to the previous APEX3 system.
