The Italian subsidiary of Shima Seiki will hold an exhibition on September 24 to 26, 2014. Shima Seiki is a Japanese computerised knitting machine manufacturer. The exhibition will be a showcase for the company’s newest selection of computerised flat knit machines like the flagship MACH2X series with slide needles mounted on four needle beds, the new compact SWG-N2 series whole garment knitting machine with capability for industrial textiles, and the SRY123 and SRY183 with loop pressers that produce unique knitwear with woven textures.
Demonstrations will also be performed on the company’s SDS-One Apex 3 design system that is at the core of the company’s total knitting system concept. With comprehensive support of all aspects throughout the knit supply chain, Apex 3 integrates knit production into one smooth and efficient workflow from yarn development, product planning and design to machine programming, production and even sales promotion. Photo-realistic simulation capability minimizes the need for sample-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost from the sampling process.

Additionally, through its subsidiaries, the company is also engaged in the operation of hotels, as well as the manufacture, sale and trading of fibrous raw materials.
