|Shima Seiki to display latest cutting technology|
Mexico City - The latest computerized cutting machine from Shima Seiki will be on display later this month when the company participates in the Expo Producción textile and machinery show to be held in Mexico City.
Alongside its Mexican representative MACOCA, Shima Seiki will exhibit its P-CAM182 multi-ply computerized cutting machine (NC cutting machine).
Described as fast and efficient with high productivity, P-CAM’s multi-ply cutting capability allows up to 2 inches (55mm) of fabric or material to be cut, while the turbo fan option suppresses fluctuation in air pressure for stable multi-ply cutting. A knife sharpening system has been designed to produce a sharp, strong blade every time while strong, robust components permit quicker response times for knife movement and more accurate cutting for thick fabrics such as denim.
P-CAM machines are said to be ideally suited to global production in a wide range of industrial applications in addition to apparel and textiles.
Also demonstrated at Expo Producción will be Shima Seiki’s SDS-ONE APEX3 computer design system. With full-featured PGM software, APEX3 provides smooth and efficient workflow from patternmaking, grading and marking to cutting.
Highly efficient “AutoMarking Premium” nesting software, as well as barcode generation are available for efficient marker generation and pick-up. APEX3 is also capable of photo-realistic product simulation for creating Virtual Samples. Virtual Sampling minimizes the need for actual sample-making, reducing time, material and cost while increasing presentation quality in the sampling process. APEX3 supports design and simulation in a variety of textile industries including flat knitting, circular knitting, weaving, pile weaving and printing, as well as industrial design.
Expo Producción takes place from 29 - 31 March at the World Trade Centre, Mexico City.
