USA: Shima Seiki dis­plays knit­ting so­lu­tions at Première Vi­sion New York

Stitch World - - TECH TRACK -

Ja­pan-based com­put­erised knit­ting tech­nol­ogy gi­ant, Shima Seiki Mfg. Ltd., marked its pres­ence at the up­com­ing edi­tion of Première Vi­sion Show in New York, USA. Dur­ing the two-day tex­tile trade show, the ma­chin­ery man­u­fac­turer ex­hib­ited its flag­ship MACH2XS Wholegarment knit­ting ma­chine along with its SDSONE APEX3 3D De­sign Sys­tem.

Throw­ing light on the fea­tures of MACH2XS Wholegarment ma­chine, Shima Seiki states that this model min­i­mizes the labour de­pen­dence as it elim­i­nates the need for hu­man in­ter­ven­tion to a great ex­tent. Mean­while, APEX3 3D de­sign sys­tem has the ca­pa­bil­ity to im­prove the de­sign and eval­u­a­tion process through Vir­tual Sam­pling. The de­sign sys­tem min­i­mizes the time con­sump­tion, re­duces the cost and helps in sav­ing ma­te­rial dur­ing the sam­pling process with its ul­tra-re­al­is­tic sim­u­la­tion fea­ture. One of the front run­ners in tex­tile tech­nol­ogy, Shima Seiki claims that the com­bi­na­tion of the Wholegarment ma­chine and its 3D de­sign stu­dio en­able ap­parel com­pa­nies to plan ef­fec­tively, re­duce lead time and elim­i­nate bot­tle­necks in value-added gar­ment man­u­fac­tur­ing, there­fore, in­creas­ing profit mar­gins. The com­pa­nies wit­nessed the live demon­stra­tion of these tech­nolo­gies at the Première Vi­sion Show, a pre­mier Euro­pean Tex­tile work­shop.

It’s worth men­tion­ing here that the US is wit­ness­ing ‘Made in Amer­ica’ wave in or­der to bring gar­ment pro­duc­tion back on­shore. To cap­i­talise on the same and tap the rapidly in­creas­ing de­mand for mass cus­tomiza­tion, shorter turn­around and online shop­ping in the US mar­ket, Shima Seiki has uti­lized the Première Vi­sion Show as a plat­form to of­fer a com­bi­na­tion of “Man­u­fac­tur­ing + De­sign” knit­ting tech­nolo­gies.
