Stitch World - - NEWS -

Shima Seiki, a Ja­pan-based com­put­er­ized knit­ting ma­chin­ery de­vel­oper, show­cased its in­no­va­tions to­gether with its Korean sub­sidiary Shima Seiki Korea Inc. at ‘Preview in SEOUL’ trade show.

The ex­hi­bi­tion was held from Au­gust 28-30 in Seoul, Korea.

At the 3- day event, Shima Seiki dis­played its SDS- ONE APEX3 3D de­sign sys­tem and knit sam­ples made on its WHOLEGARMENT knit­ting machine.

Ac­cord­ing to the com­pany, the com­bi­na­tion of its APEX3 and WHOLEGARMENT tech­nol­ogy al­lows man­u­fac­tur­ers to pro­duce gar­ments with­out sewing/ link­ing op­er­a­tion and pro­vides them with max­i­mum flex­i­bil­ity in the knit­ting sup­ply chain.

The ‘ To­tal Fash­ion Sys­tem’ con­cept of SDS- ONE APEX3 3D de­sign sys­tem is de­signed to sup­port the ap­parel sup­ply chain with its vir­tual sam­pling fea­ture. The con­cept fa­cil­i­tates the users with an op­por­tu­nity to im­prove the de­sign and eval­u­a­tion process. Equipped with ul­tra­real­is­tic sim­u­la­tion ca­pa­bil­ity, the sys­tem helps in sig­nif­i­cant re­duc­tion in time, cost and ma­te­rial spent dur­ing the sam­ple-mak­ing process, ul­ti­mately re­duc­ing the lead time wasted in sam­ple approvals.

Fur­ther­more, APEX3 is syn­chro­nized with ‘STAF’ ( Shima Trend Archive And Fore­cast), which is a new web-based fash­ion ser­vice of Shima Seiki. The STAF cov­ers a stock of data of last 50 years re­lated to fash­ion and its trends. This data will as­sist the fash­ion in­dus­try peo­ple to or­ga­nize their plan­ning, de­sign process and pre­sen­ta­tion, claims Shima Seiki.

“Our tech­nol­ogy is ded­i­cated to the rapidly chang­ing con­sumer trends as they are pretty much in­clined to­wards dig­i­tal pur­chas­ing. This evolv­ing sce­nario has changed the re­quire­ments of the sup­ply chain as de­mand for short turn­around and mass cus­tomiza­tion is in­creas­ing,” ex­plains Shima Seiki.
