HIMA SEIKI ITALIA S.p.A., Italian subsidiary of leading Japanese computerized knitting machine manufacturer SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD., will exhibit at the 75th Pitti Immagine Filati exhibition in Florence, Italy. It will participate in the KnitClub section of the exhibition which is aimed at appealing to the technical and creative interests of visitors and to stimulate advanced integration of the entire production chain.
Such a concept is perfectly matched to SHIMA SEIKI’s presentation of its “SDS-ONE APEX3” 3D design system demonstrating comprehensive support of the entire process of knitwear production from planning and production to sales promotion.
Also emphasized is APEX3’s capability for Virtual Sampling that minimizes the sample making process.
Examples of Virtual Samples will be on display as well, in addition to knitwear produced on its latest line of computerized knitting machines, including revolutionary WHOLEGARMENT® knitwear that features superior fit, comfort and draping characteristics.
On display will be SHIMA SEIKI’s latest Autumn/Winter Collection that blends creative knit design with technological innovation, along with highly efficient production methods.
SDS-ONE APEX3 is at the core of SHIMA SEIKI’s “Total Knitting System” concept, made possible through its comprehensive support of the knit supply chain from planning and production to sales promotion, as well as its capability for Virtual Sampling. Ultra-realistic simulation capability allows Virtual Sampling to minimize the costly time- and resource-consuming sample-making process. Products can also be evaluated from all angles using 3D simulation, such as 3D modeling, 3D fitting and 3D mapping.
