Shima Seiki, a leading computerised flat knitting machine manufacturer of Wakayama, will exhibit at the Première Vision show in Istanbul, Turkey this October, exhibiting its 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 workflow from planning and design to production and sales promotion. With ultra-realistic product simulations, APEX3 is also capable of Virtual Sampling that minimises 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 the MACH2XS flagship WHOLEGARMENT knitting machine. Featuring Shima Seiki’s original SlideNeedle on four needle beds, as well as the patented spring-type sinker system, MACH2XS is designed to offer great flexibility for knitting beautiful and sophisticated, high-quality WHOLEGARMENT products with a seemingly endless variety of knit patterns at very high speed and efficiency, all while minimising dependence upon labour-intensive sewing and linking.

Shima Seiki will also exhibit knitwear produced on its latest line of computerised knitting machines. Besides seam-free WHOLEGARMENT knitwear that features superior fit, comfort and draping characteristics, samples knitted on the SRY series and SVR series machines feature hybrid knit-weave structures that are sure to impress visitors with their unique look and feel.
