Shima Seiki at GTE 2019 in New Delhi, India

Leading Japanese computerized flat knitting machine manufacturer SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD. of Wakayama, Japan will exhibit at the upcoming Garment Technology Expo (GTE 2019) to be held in New Delhi, India from February 22 – 25, 2019

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 present exclusive solutions to meet the current needs of the Indian market as well as future market needs. Such solutions are provided by the company’s MACH2S WHOLEGARMENT® knit­ ting machine that offers the flexibility of producing WHOLEGARMENT® knitwear using every other needle as well as con­ ventional shaped knitwear using all needles. This feature helps users to invest in their technology wisely.

Demonstrations will also be performed on the latest version of SHIMA SEIKI’s 3D design system SDS­ONE APEX3. At the core of the company’s “Total Fashion System” concept, APEX3 provides comprehensive support throughout the prod­ uct supply chain, integrating production into one smooth and efficient workflow from yarn development, product plan­ ning and design to production and even sales promotion. Especially effective is the way APEX3 improves on the design evaluation process with its ultra­realistic simulation capability, whereby virtual samples minimize the need for actual sample­making. Together with WHOLEGARMENT® knitting, APEX3 realizes significant savings in time, cost and material, contributing to truly sustainable knit manufacturing.
