Wakayama - Computerized flat knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki will exhibit at the Première Vision show in Istanbul, Turkey later this month.
Taking center stage 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 the costly time- and resource-consuming sample-making process. APEX3 supports design and simulation in a variety of textile industries including WHOLEGARMENT knitting, flat knitting, circular knitting, weaving, pile weaving and printing.
Representing the production aspect of the Total Fashion System at Première Vision Istanbul will be SWG091N2, the largest in the SWG-N2 line of compact WHOLEGARMENT knitting machines. Featuring Shima Seiki’s original SlideNeedle, the SWG-N2 series offers great flexibility with the capability to produce a variety of accessory items such as gloves, socks, leggings, hats and mufflers as well as childrenswear and even technical textiles.
According to Shima Seiki, its versatility makes the SWG-N2 series ideal for a range of applications from production in large-scale knitting factories to sampling in design studios as well as R&D and educational facilities.
Shima Seiki will also exhibit knitwear produced on its latest line of computerized knitting machines, including seam-free WHOLEGARMENT knitwear that features superior fit, comfort and draping characteristics.
The show takes place from 23rd to 25th March 2016 at the CNR Expo Hall 1 & 3, Fuar Merkezi, Yesilkoy, Istanbul.
