Shima Seiki Mfg., Ltd., together with its U.K. subsidiary Shima Seiki Europe Ltd. will hold a Product & Sample Show at its offices in Derbyshire, England on June 21st and 22nd.
With “See More… Be More” as its slogan, the exhibition encourages visitors to experience Shima Seiki technology to its fullest by showcasing a full array of textile machine technology. The flagship MACH2XS series features Shima Seiki’s original SlideNeedle on four needlebeds as well as the patented spring-type sinker system. The SWG-N2 series compact WholeGarment knitting machine offers increased color capacity as well as the capability for producing industrial textiles.
The new SVR123SP machine features a loop presser bed, and is capable of producing unique knit fabrics with woven textures as well as technical textiles. The SSR112 machine features Shima Seiki benchmark technology in a compact, economical package. Also featured are SIP-series 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 will also be 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. APEX3 also supports design and simulation in various other industries such as circular knitting, weaving, pile weaving and printing.
