Japanese knitting ma­chine man­u­fac­turer Shima Seiki Mfg. Ltd., to­gether with its UK sub­sidiary Shima Seiki Europe Ltd. re­cently hosted a Prod­uct & Sam­ple Show at its of­fices in Der­byshire, Eng­land. Dubbed “See More… Be More”, the ex­hi­bi­tion show­cased a full ar­ray of tex­tile ma­chine tech­nol­ogy.

On dis­play was com­pany’s flag­ship MACH2XS se­ries that fea­tures Shima Seiki’s orig­i­nal SlideNee­dle on four nee­dle beds as well as the patented spring-type sinker sys­tem. An­other tech­nol­ogy on dis­play was SWG-N2 se­ries com­pact WHOLEGARMENT knitting ma­chine which of­fers in­creased colour ca­pac­ity as well as the ca­pa­bil­ity for pro­duc­ing in­dus­trial tex­tiles.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the new SVR123SP ma­chine that fea­tures a loop presser bed and is ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing unique knit fabrics with wo­ven tex­tures as well as tech­ni­cal tex­tiles, and SSR112 ma­chine, which fea­tures Shima Seiki bench­mark tech­nol­ogy in a com­pact, eco­nom­i­cal pack­age, were also demon­strated. Also fea­tured were SIPseries flatbed-type on-de­mand inkjet print­ing ma­chines us­ing re­ac­tive- and acid-dyes as well as pig­ment ink (fea­tur­ing new white pig­ment ink) and P-CAM com­put­er­ized cut­ting ma­chine.

Demon­stra­tions were per­formed on the SDS-ONE APEX3 de­sign sys­tem that is at the core of the com­pany’s “To­tal Knitting Sys­tem” con­cept. With com­pre­hen­sive sup­port of the knit sup­ply chain, APEX3 in­te­grates knit pro­duc­tion into one smooth and ef­fi­cient work­flow from plan­ning and de­sign to ma­chine pro­gram­ming, pro­duc­tion and even sales pro­mo­tion. Photo-re­al­is­tic sim­u­la­tion ca­pa­bil­ity al­lows Vir­tual Sam­pling to min­i­mize the need for ac­tual sam­ple-mak­ing, ef­fec­tively re­duc­ing time, ma­te­rial and cost in the sam­pling process.
