Shima Seiki to participate at SIMATEX 2016
Leading computerized knitting machine manufacturer SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD. of Wakayama, Japan will participate at the SIMATEX exhibition in Buenos Aires, Argentina from April 5 – 7, 2016 at Booth 5N-04
Shima Seiki will exhibit a wide range of its products, including new proposals in seam-free WHOLEGARMENT® knitting technology that offers an alternative to labour-intensive manufacturing in the South American market. Featured is the flag- ship MACH2XS with original SlideNeedle on four needle beds and spring-loaded moveable sinkers. The SVR workhorse series resets the industry benchmark for shaped knitting, while the SSR series offers industry-leading technology in an economical package.
Demonstrations will 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 pro- motion. Photo-realistic simulation capability allows Virtual Sampling to minimize the need for actual sample-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost while increasing presentation quality in the sampling process.
