Shima Seiki launches new automatic glove machine
Friday, 06 January 2012

Wakayama - Fifty years on from its foundation as a manufacturer of glove knitting technology, Shima Seiki has developed a new, automatic seamless glove knitting machine.

For Dr Masahiro Shima, a desire to manufacture machines capable of knitting strong, well fitting and safe work gloves is where the company?s journey began. The principle behind seamless glove knitting was also one of the key inspirations behind Dr. Shima?s development of WholeGarment technology and the launch of the SWG series of machines at the Milan ITMA in 1995.
