YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2016-05-18 14:00:00 – WAKAYAMA,

Shima Seiki Mfg. Ltd., computerized knitting machine manufacturer together with its European subsidiary Shima Seiki Eurpoe Ltd., to display its latest offering in Wholegarment knitting technology at Meet the Manufacturer, a trade show and sourcing exhibition to be held in London this month.

Meet the Manufacturer is the only sourcing event exclusively for British clothing, textile & leathergoods manufacturers. It features clothing manufacturers, textile mills, makers of leather goods and suppliers to the UK apparel and textile industries. Shima Seiki will participate as textile machinery supplier by demonstrating its seam-free Wholegarment knitting technology.

On display will be Shima Seiki’s flagship MACH2XS Wholegarment knitting machine that features the company’s original SlideNeedle on four needle beds as well as the company’s patented spring loaded full-time sinker system. It can knit beautifully shaped, high-quality Wholegarment knitwear with very high efficiency while minimizing dependence upon labor-intensive sewing and linking, spearheading the movement to bring knit production back on-shore to traditional production centers in the United Kingdom.

Also on display is the latest version of SHIMA SEIKI’s SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system. At the core of the company’s “Total Fashion System” concept, APEX3 provides comprehensive support throughout the apparel supply chain, integrating production into one smooth and efficient workflow from yarn development, product planning and design to production and even sales promotion. Especially effective is APEX3’s capability to improve on the design and evaluation process with Virtual Sampling. Photo-realistic simulation capability allows Virtual Sampling to minimize costly time- and resource- consuming sample making while enhancing presentation quality.

With over 150 exhibitors specializing in clothing, textiles and leather goods, the show will celebrate its third edition which will take place from 25-26 May 2016 at The Old Truman Brewery, London.
