The world's largest consumer of knitted products: the United States. In the state California, knitwear manufacturer Andari Fashion produces high-end knitwear for major American department stores and specialty retailers. Having installed WHOLEGARMENT knitting machines, Andari Fashion not only breaks from the convention of labor-intensive production, but also significantly reduces lead time, successfully manufacturing consistent, high-quality, high-value-added knit products that are Made in the USA. WHOLEGARMENT is the key to overcoming the challenges associated with conventional knit manufacturing.
SHIMA SEIKI's flat knitting machine
can efficiently produce traditional sweaters
to even delicate couture products.
Since WHOLEGARMENT is knitted as one entire piece
without the sewing process, it offers on-demand
production suitable for mass customization and
e-commerce, which have become popular in recent years.
Furthermore, because we can produce as much is required
with the necessary materials, WHOLEGARMENT is an
environmentally friendly, sustainable solution.
With the 3D design system SDS-ONE APEX series,
designs can be examined with "virtual samples"
created by simulations, during the stages of
planning and design.
The need for sampling is eliminated because it is
realistic enough to be regarded as an actual product,
which can shorten lead times for product development.
In addition, accurate digital communication
can be achieved by using APEX
by yarn manufacturer, apparel, and producer.
When executing the 3D fitting simulation, you can check the silhouette of the product, as well as the tension, the compression, and the amount of ease.
The production efficiency of fashion items
is further enhanced through automation realized
by the introduction of computerized fabric cutting machines.
SHIMA SEIKI's CAM has a wide selection
of cutting widths, thickness of fabrics,
types of cutters, etc.
