Japan-based computerized flatbed knitting machinery manufacturer SHIMA SEIKI MFG. Ltd. is all set to present its latest innovations at the Première Vision Show in New York, the global textile event for fashion professionals including weavers, leather producers, accessories companies, designs studios and manufacturers, slated to be held on January 17-18, 2017.
The manufacturer will participate in the new “Manufacturing” area dedicated to technical and logistical manufacturing solutions as sole machine technologist with a machine exhibit at the show. Given current conditions in garment manufacturing especially in the US, SHIMA SEIKI’s proposals at Première Vision New York should be of timely significance.

Reinforcing the Made in USA movement for returning garment production back on-shore, consumer trends such as increase in online shopping activity have also changed supply chain requirements with growing demand for mass customization and short turnaround. The combination of SHIMA SEIKI’s WHOLEGARMENT® knitting technology and SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system offers an ideal manufacturing model to support just that, the company release mentions.
