Wakayama - Computerized knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki will participate in the 30th Vietnam Saigon Textile & Garment Industry Expo (SaigonTex 2017) show to be held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam next month.
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 produces a sharp, strong blade every time.
Moreover, strong, robust components permit quicker response times for knife movement and more accurate cutting for thick fabrics such as denim. P-CAM 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 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 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 2017 takes place from 5 - 8 April 2017 at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC).
