Leading computerised knitting machine developer, Shima Seiki Mfg., Ltd., is set to participate at the Premiere Vision show, a global event for fashion professionals, to be held in Paris, from February 13 to 15, 2018, in hall 6, stand 6J286K29. It will participate in the “Knitwear Solutions” category for the flatbed knit sector as sole machine technologist.
On display, will be the SVR093SP shortbed version of its computerised knitting machine that features a special loop presser bed, capable of producing hybrid inlay fabrics that feature both knit and weave characteristics. Demand for such unique fabrics are very high across a wide range of applications, from fashion apparel to sportswear, innerwear, outerwear, uniforms and other functional clothing, as well as technical textiles. Knitted accessory items will also be presented to demonstrate the flexibility of knitting technology.
The latest version of Shima Seiki’s 3D design system SDSONE APEX3 will also be exhibited at Première Vision. At the core of the company’s “Total Fashion System” concept, APEX3 provides comprehensive support throughout the production supply chain, integrating production into one smooth and efficient workflow from yarn development, product planning 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 minimise the need for actual samplemaking. This realises significant savings in time, cost and material, contributing to sustainable manufacturing.
