Ja­pan: Shima Seiki launches ‘i-Plat­ing’ tech­nol­ogy for di­verse knit de­signs

Stitch World - - NEWS TRACK -

Ja­pan-based Shima Seiki, a pi­o­neer in com­put­er­ized knit­ting ma­chin­ery man­u­fac­tur­ing, has un­veiled a new ‘i-Plat­ing’ tech­nol­ogy on the se­lect mod­els of its knit­ting ma­chines such as SVR093SP and SVR123SP.

The SVR093SP and SVR123SP ma­chine mod­els fea­ture loop pressers to pro­duce in­lay pat­terns in or­der to ob­tain a high-qual­ity com­bi­na­tion of ‘knitweave’ hy­brid fab­rics. The ‘i-Plat­ing’ tech­nol­ogy will help en­hance the pat­terns/knit de­signs pro­duced with these ma­chines.

It is be­ing re­ported that the plat­ing tech­nique will pro­vide the man­u­fac­tur­ers with ex­panded pat­tern­ing op­tions and higher ef­fi­ciency.

The tech­nol­ogy ac­tu­ally uses of in­verse plat­ing method which al­lows the users to ex­pand their pat­tern op­tions. “i-Plat­ing” goes a step fur­ther by of­fer­ing this ca­pa­bil­ity within the same course and for in­di­vid­ual nee­dles for greater ef­fi­ciency,” claims Shima Seiki.

Shima Seiki fur­ther re­ports that the i-Plat­ing tech­nique re­places the con­ven­tional plat­ing meth­ods and of­fers an in­verse-plat­ing con­cept.

The con­cept en­ables al­ter­nate yarns to be shown on the fab­ric sur­face in any of the specif­i­cally cho­sen pat­terns or de­signs. This will fur­ther pro­duce jacquard-like pat­terns in plain jersey stitch, the com­pany states.
