Wakayama - Japanese computerized cutting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki will participate in the Vietnam Saigon Textile & Garment Industry Expo (SaigonTex 2019) show to be held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam this month.

Shima Seiki will exhibit its PCAM183 multiply computerized cutting machine (NC cutting machine) which is described as fast and efficient with high productivity.

PCAM’s multiply cutting capability allows up to 3 inches (80 mm) of fabric or material to be cut, while the standard turbo fan suppresses fluctuation in air pressure for stable multiply cutting.

A knife sharpening system produces 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.

According to Shima Seiki, PCAM machines are ideally suited to global production in a wide range of industrial applications in addition to apparel and textiles.

Also demonstrated at SaigonTex will be Shima Seiki’s SDSONE APEX3 computer design system. The full-featured APEX3 provides smooth and efficient workflow from patternmaking, grading and marking to cutting.

New PGM software is available for demonstration, featuring newly organized functions and menu layout for a more intuitive user interface, resulting in an average of 40 per cent higher productivity. Highly efficient “AutoMarking Premium” nesting software, as well as barcode generation are available for efficient marker generation and pickup.

APEX3 is also capable of photorealistic product simulation for creating 3D virtual samples that can be used for accurate checking of toile fabrics.

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.

SaigonTex 2019 takes place from 10 to 13 April at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC) 799 Nguyen Van Linh, Tan Phu Ward, Dist 7.
