Shima Seiki Mfg., Ltd. will participate in the Vietnam Saigon Textile & Garment Industry Expo (SaigonTex 2018) show to be held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam from April 11th to 14th. (Hall A1, Booth 1A-1)
The company will exhibit its P-CAM182 multi-ply computerized cutting machine (NC cutting machine). Fast and efficient with high productivity, P-CAM’s multi-ply cutting capability allows up to 2 inches (55 mm) of fabrics or materials to be cut, while the turbo fan option suppresses fluctuation in air pressure for stable multiply cutting. A knife sharpening system produces a sharp, strong blade every time. Strong, robust components permit quicker response times for knife movement and more accurate cutting for thick fabrics such as denim. P-CAM machines are ideally suited to global production in a wide range of industrial applications in addition to apparel and textiles.
Also demonstrated at SaigonTex will be the SDS-ONE APEX3 computer design system. The full-featured APEX3 provides smooth and efficient workflow from patternmaking, grading and marking to cutting. New PGM software is available for demonstration, featuring newly organized functions and menu layout for a more intuitive user interface, resulting in an average of 40% higher productivity. Highly efficient “AutoMarking Premium” nesting software, as well as barcode generation are available for efficient marker generation and pickup. APEX3 is also capable of photo-realistic product simulation for creating 3D virtual samples that can be used for accurate checking of toile fabrics. Virtual Sampling minimizes the need for actual sample-making, reducing time, material and cost while increasing presentation quality in the sampling process. APEX3 supports design and simulation in a variety of textile industries including flat knitting, circular knitting, weaving, pile weaving and printing, as well as industrial design.
