SVR123SP at Pitti Filati furthermore features the new i­Plating option, capable of alternating yarn colours in any pattern, producing jacquard­like designs using plain jersey stitch. Plating can be performed within the same course and for individual needles for even greater diversity in knit design.

The latest version of SHIMA SEIKI’s 3D design system SDS­ONE APEX3 will also be exhibited at Pitti Filati. At the core of the company’s “Total Fashion System” concept, APEX3 provides comprehensive support throughout the product supply chain, integrating production into one smooth and efficient workflow from yarn development, product planning and design to production and even sales promotion. Especially effective is the way APEX3 improves on the design evaluation process with its ultra­realistic simulation capability, whereby virtual samples minimize the need for actual samplemaking. This realizes significant savings in time, cost and material, contributing to sustainable manufacturing.
