Shima Seiki, a leading Japanese computerised cutting machine manufacturer of Wakayama, will participate in the Vietnam Saigon Textile & Garment Industry Expo (SaigonTex 2018), to be held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, this month.

Shima Seiki will exhibit its PCAM182 multiply computerised cutting machine (NC cutting machine). Fast and efficient with high productivity, PCAM’s multiply cutting capability allows up to 55mm of fabric or material to be cut, while the turbo fan option suppresses fluctuation in air pressure for stable multiply cutting.

A knife sharpening system produces a sharp, strong blade every time. Strong, robust components permit quicker response times for knife movement and more accurate cutting for thick fabrics such as denim. PCAM machines are ideally suited to global production in a wide range of industrial applications in addition to apparel and textiles, the company reports.


Also demonstrated at SaigonTex will be Shima Seiki’s SDSONE APEX3 computer design system. The full-featured APEX3 is designed to provide smooth and efficient workflow from patternmaking, grading and marking to cutting.

New PGM software is available for demonstration, featuring newly organised functions and menu layout for a more intuitive user interface, resulting in an average of 40% higher productivity. Highly efficient AutoMarking Premium nesting software, as well as barcode generation, are available for efficient marker generation and pickup. APEX3 is also capable of photorealistic product simulation for creating 3D virtual samples that can be used for accurate checking of toile fabrics.

“Virtual Sampling minimises 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,” the manufacturer explains.
