Japanese computerised knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki is exhibiting at the Première Vision show in Paris which runs from September 15-17, 2015 at booth no. 6KW151
It will once again participate in the ‘Knitwear Solutions’ category for the flatbed knit sector as sole machine technologist, following its successful participation in past editions.
“Especially of note this year is the adoption of knitted one-piece dresses using the company’s exclusive Wholegarment knitting technology as official uniforms for the exhibition’s hostesses,” a press release stated.
On display will be an updated version of its SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system which offers a comprehensive support of the entire process of knitwear production.
It begins from planning and design to production and sales promotion, as well as its capability for virtual sampling.
According to Shima Seiki, ultra-realistic simulation capability allows virtual sampling to minimise the costly time and resource consuming sample making process while enhancing presentation quality.
3D simulation allows evaluation of knitwear from all angles, while 3D modeling, 3D mapping and 3D fitting simulation of multiple coordinate items are also possible.
“APEX3 also supports design and simulation in a variety of other industries such as circular knitting, pile knitting, weaving and printing,” Shima Seiki said.
The Japanese company will also exhibit knitwear produced on its latest line of computerised knitting machines, including the Wholegarment knitwear that is produced in one entire piece without seams.
Shima Seiki will also showcase innovations in knitted textiles through samples knitted on its new SRY machine that is capable of producing unique hybrid knit fabrics that cross-over into the realm of wovens. (AR)
