SHIMA SEIKI is a leading solutions provider dedicated to delivering a digitally optimized value chain for the fashion industry.
Known for its innovative fashion technology, SHIMA SEIKI is particularly famous as pioneer of WHOLEGARMENT knitting technology wherein a garment can be produced three-dimensionally in one entire piece without the need for sewing. Using only the minimum amount of yarn required to knit a single garment, WHOLEGARMENT quickly became the benchmark for sustainable textile production.
SHIMA SEIKI is also known for its fashion tech solutions especially in the realism achieved through its virtual sampling technology. Based on actual yarn data, fabric simulations generated on its SDS-ONE APEX series are unparalleled in quality and realism. Should the design be approved for production, knitting data is automatically generated for converting to machine data, allowing smooth communication for digitally bridging the gap between the studio and factory.
Newly launched this year is APEXFiz subscription software that carries over proven functions from our benchmark SDS-ONE APEX4. With APEXFiz those strengths are now enhanced with the added versatility to adapt to working styles of the “new normal” including teleworking and telecommuting.
