Shima Seiki Mfg., Ltd. is exhibiting at the 15th Dhaka International Textile & Garment Machinery Exhibition (DTG 2018) in Dhaka, Bangladesh, from February 8th to 11th in cooperation with its partner Pacific Associates Ltd.
Operating in Bangladesh since 1996, this is the eleventh time the Japanese manufacturer will participate in DTG.
Shima Seiki will be exhibiting its latest solutions to meet the current needs of the Bangladeshi market, as well as advanced solutions for future market needs. As pioneer of WholeGarment knitting technology whereby an entire garment can be produced in one piece on the machine without linking or sewing, Shima Seiki will show its SWG091N2 WholeGarment knitting machine which provides opportunities for highly flexible production across a wide range of items in a compact, economical package.
The benchmark SVR123SP features a loop presser bed mounted above the rear needle bed, and is capable of inlay technique for producing unique, value-added hybrid knit-weave fabrics. In addition at DTG, the SVR123SP features the new i-Plating option, capable of alternating yarn colors in any pattern, producing jacquard-like designs using plain jersey stitch. Plating can be performed within the same course and for individual needles for even greater diversity in knit design.
The SSR series workhorse machine will also be on display, featuring such Shima Seiki innovations as the Digital Stitch Control System (DSCS), spring-type moveable sinker system, stitch presser, yarn gripper and cutter and takedown comb.
Made-in-Japan quality, reliability, productivity, user-friendliness and cost-performance all combine to satisfy the high expectations of the world’s fashion industry. Shima Seiki’s P-CAM series computerized cutting machine will also be on display.
Also shown will be the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system. At the core of Shima Seiki’s “Total Fashion System” concept, APEX3 integrates all stages of apparel production into one smooth and efficient workflow from planning and design to production and sales promotion. With ultra-realistic product simulations, APEX3 is also capable of Virtual Sampling that minimizes time, material and cost from the sample-making process. Also demonstrated at DTG is the Shima KnitPLM, specialized PLM software for the knitting industry.
