Shima Seiki to exhibit at Bangladesh machinery showcase Print
Tuesday, 14 February 2017

Dhaka - Shima Seiki will be exhibiting at the 14th Dhaka International Textile & Garment Machinery Exhibition (DTG 2017) with a wide range of its latest flat knitting solutions aimed at meeting the current needs of the Bangladeshi market as well as advanced solutions for future market needs.

Operating in Bangladesh since 1996, this will be the tenth time the Japanese manufacturer will participate at DTG where it will be exhibiting alongside its partner, Pacific Associates Ltd.

As the 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 show its SWG061N WHOLEGARMENT knitting machine which provides opportunities for highly flexible WHOLEGARMENT production over a wide range of items in a compact, economical package.

Also on show will be the MACH2SIR, the speciality intarsia machine with the capacity for up to 40 intarsia carriers, the largest number of intarsia feeders available in flat knitting.

In addition, the latest addition to the SVR series will be shown for the first time in Bangladesh following its launch at ITMA Asia + CITME 2016 held in Shanghai last October. SVR123SP features a loop presser bed mounted above the rear needle bed and is capable of inlay technique for producing unique, value-added hybrid knit-weave fabrics.

The SSR series workhorse shaping machine will also be on display, featuring all the technological achievements for which Shima Seiki is made famous: DSCS Digital Stitch Control System; spring-type moveable sinker system; stitch presser; yarn gripper and cutter; takedown comb; and more.

"For each of these machines, Made-in-Japan quality, reliability, productivity, user-friendliness and cost-performance combine to satisfy the high expectations of the world’s fashion industry," Shima Seiki said.

Also on display will be the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system. At the core of Shima Seiki’s “Total Fashion System” concept, APEX3 integrates all stages of apparel production into one smooth and efficient workflow from planning and design to production and sales promotion. With ultra-realistic product simulations, APEX3 is also capable of Virtual Sampling that minimizes time, material and cost from the sample-making process.

The exhibition takes place from 23 to 26 February 2017 at the Bangabandhu International Conference Center (BICC) Agargaon, Sher-E-Bangla, Nagar, Dhaka. Shima Seiki can be found in Hall 6, Booth 603.
