Leading Japanese computerized flat knitting machine manufacturer SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD. will exhibit at the upcoming Expotextil Peru 2018 show in Lima, Peru.

At Expotextil SHIMA SEIKI will promote its WHOLEGARMENT® knitting technology by displaying its SWG061N2 WHOLEGARMENT® knitting machine. As a compact entry­level machine, the SWG­N2 series is perfect for knitting compa­ nies searching for ways to distinguish their services in a competitive market. On­demand knitting capability of WHOLEGARMENT® combined with the great flexibility of SWG­N2 in producing a variety of items such as gloves, socks, leg­ gings, hats and mufflers as well as childrenswear, provide new business opportunities as well.

The latest in conventional knitting is represented by the SVR122 computerized knitting machine. SVR122 becomes the new reference standard in shaped knitting by inheriting proven SHIMA SEIKI technology such as the patented Digital Stitch Control System (DSCS®), Spring­Type Sinker System, Stitch Presser, Yarn Gripper and Cutter and Takedown Comb. Made­in­Japan quality, reliability, productivity, user­friendliness and cost­performance combine to satisfy the high stan­ dards expected by the fashion industry within Peru and beyond.
