Shima Seiki Italia S.p.A., the Italian subsidiary of Shima Seiki Mfg., Ltd., in conjunction with its Romanian sales agent Knit-Tex Rom, will hold a private exhibition in Arad, Romania from October 25th to 27th. On display will be a lineup of Shima Seiki’s computerized flat knitting machines ranging from conventional shaping machines to the latest WholeGarment knitting machines.
The flagship MACH2XS series of WholeGarment knitting machines features the company’s original SlideNeedle on four needlebeds as well as the patented spring-type sinker system. The SWG-N2 series compact WholeGarment knitting machine is a versatile lineup capable of producing a variety of small items and accessories as well as technical textiles. SRY features loop pressers capable of producing unique knit-weave hybrid fabrics. The SSR series features Shima Seiki benchmark technology in a compact, economical package. A wide range of gauges will also be on display, from the ultrafine 18G SIR to the NSES coarse gauge machine in 3G.
Demonstrations will be performed on the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system that is at the core of Shima Seiki’s “Total Knitting System” concept. With comprehensive support of all stages throughout 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. Especially effective is APEX3’s capability to improve on the planning process with Virtual Sampling. Photo-realistic simulation capability minimizes the need for sample-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost from the sampling process.
