Shima Seiki Mfg., Ltd. will exhibit at the 16th Dhaka International Textile & Garment Machinery Exhibition (DTG 2019) from January 9th to 12th in Dhaka, Bangladesh, in cooperation with its partner Pacific Associates Ltd. Operating in Bangladesh since 1996, this is the twelfth time the Japanese manufacturer will participate in DTG.
In Hall 7, Booth 311, Shima Seiki will exhibit its latest solutions to meet the current needs of the Bangladeshi market, as well as advanced solutions for future market needs. As a pioneer of WholeGarment knitting technology whereby an entire garment can be produced in one piece on the machine without linking or sewing, the company will show a comprehensive lineup of WholeGarment knitting machines.
MACH2X features 4 needle beds and Shima Seiki’s original SlideNeedle, capable of producing high-quality fine-gauge WholeGarment knitwear in all needles.
MACH2S is a V-bed machine that offers the flexibility of producing WholeGarment knitwear using every other needle as well as conventional shaped knitwear using all needles. SWG091N2 provides opportunities in WholeGarment knitting across a wide range of items in a compact, economical package.
In conventional shaped knitting, SVR123SP and SVR093SP each feature a loop presser bed mounted above the rear needle bed, and are capable of inlay technique for producing unique, value-added hybrid knit-weave fabrics. Each also features such Shima Seiki innovations as DSCSR Digital Stitch Control System, 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. The SVR123SP at DTG furthermore features the new i-Plating option, capable of alternating yarn colors in any pattern, producing jacquard-like designs with plain jersey stitch. Plating can be performed within the same course and for individual needles for even greater diversity in knit design.
Shima Seiki will also show its all-around strength as a textile machine manufacturer by displaying its P-CAM series computerized multiply cutting machine and prototype P-SPR2 automatic spreading machine as part of its Shima Cutting Solutions strategically developed for the Asian and South Asian markets.
Also shown will be the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system. At the core of the company’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 that offers production planning, control and remote monitoring of machine status at multiple factory locations.
