Studio Next presents latest cutting and spreading solutions

In today’s dynamic economic environment, there is a constant need for improvement in processes. An organisation cannot always rely on past performance to remain successful perennially. In order to remain competitive, an organisation needs to upgrade its technology, rationalize the cost of production, improve the product quality & speed of delivery by maintaining less man power. Organisations will have thousands of job orders per year to accomplish, and thus they will always seek new ways to improve its processes. The focus on efficiency in the apparel industry is mainly on the reduction of the material costs, which often reach up to 75 per cent of the total production costs.

With the help of automation in its process, an apparel manufacturer can achieve its targets. Since 2003, Studio Next Technology Pvt. Ltd. has been playing a vital role in the process of bridging the gap between the industry and its demands in the automation process, by offering the latest technologies.

Pattern Making, Marker Making & Fabric Cutting are considered to be the most important operation in apparel manufacturing process owing to the following factors:

Firstly, fit is the most important factor leading to the final acceptance or rejection of a garment and a good fit is dependent on the Pattern. Studio Next Provides a powerful high end Richpeace Drafting & Grading System for pattern making.

Secondly, laying out the patterns in fabric to prepare for cutting is an important step that must be done carefully and efficiently as it handles the costliest material resource – the fabric and it is vital that one orders the fabric appropriately. Studio Next helps in providing an efficient Garment Marker System along with its Powerful Super nest Module which helps in optimising fabric consumptions.

Thirdly, the spreading and cutting process is irreversible and the concept of repair or alteration does not work here. As such, it is vital that one needs to track the cutting room processes to keep errors to a minimum. Studio Next helps in providing fully automated Spreading and Cutting Machine which ensures that errors are kept to the minimum.

Studio Next is happy to announce its launch of new products, ‘SCOPE’, a low-cost semi-automatic spreader which eases the laying process and doubles the production capacity and reduces the man power into half and ‘RP-MJ/4 New Generation’, High Speed plotter for printing the markers for the organisations who wants to go slow on investments like Automatic Spreading & Cutting Machine.

Flat knitting innovator Shima Seiki presents latest technologies

Recent consumer trends such as increa sed online shopping activity have changed supply chain requirements in China, with growing interest in on-demand production both in terms of time-compression and mass-customization. The combination of SHIMA SEIKI’s pioneering WHOLEGARMENT ® knitting technology that allows a garment to be produced in its entirety without the need for linking or sewing afterward, along with the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system, yields revolutionary game-changing flexibility in the knit supply chain to support such trends.

WHOLEGARMENT® knitting technology was introduced over 20 years ago to industry acclaim and has steadily gained acceptance throughout the industry. Originally based in concept on SHIMA SEIKI’s founding development—the seamless glove machine, the gloves made on those machines were themselves the very first WHOLEGARMENT® products and became the inspiration for the eventual innovation. Still the only commercially proven and industrially sufficient form of complete garment production available anywhere in the textile industry, WHOLEGARMENT ® is the culmination of SHIMA SEIKI technology with over 2,000 patents registered and pending. Its current success has been made possible by the company’s proud dedication to development and commitment to industry. Further contributions include Industry 4.0-inspired factory automation and the addressing of sustainability issues.

Sharing the spotlight along with WHOLEGARMENT ® knitting technology is the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system. At the core of SHIMA SEIKI’s “Total Fashion System” concept, ultra-realistic simulation capability on APEX3 allows virtual sampling to minimize the impact that the sample-making process has on current manufacturing in terms of time and cost. With this new manufacturing model, the production cycle can be shortened to such an extent that on-demand production is possible without being limited to seasonal cycles. This allows the product planning stage to be extended to allow more accurate analysis of consumer demand. Moreover, virtual samples can be used at the retail level to gauge consumer acceptance of upcoming products, data for which can be used for forecasting demand. Such feedback can be used to adjust production and optimize inventory in order to prevent leftover stock that would otherwise go to waste. If stock runs out mid-season, on-demand production capability of WHOLEGARMENT® knitting can furthermore replenish inventory to prevent lost opportunity. In such a way, the Total Fashion System maximizes profit while achieving zero inventory loss, zero leftover stock, zero lost sales opportunity and most importantly zero waste through smart, speedy and sustainable production. This ideal method of knit manufacturing is revealed in SHIMA SEIKI’s “Smart Supply Chain” demonstration held at its booth.

Representing the production aspect of the Total Fashion System at ITMA Asia are four computerized flat knitting machines with distinct solutions to current and future needs of the Chinese and Asian markets. WHOLEGARMENT® knitting technology is represented by three machines, each with its own unique capabilities. Featuring SHIMA SEIKI’s original SlideNeedle™ on four needle beds as well as the patented spring-type sinker system, MACH2XS offers great flexibility for knitting beautiful and sophisticated, high-quality WHOLEGARMENT ® products in all needles, with a seemingly endless variety of knit patterns at very high speed and efficiency. MACH2S is a versatile V-bed machine that supports production ranging from conventional shaped knitting in all needles to WHOLEGARMENT® knitting using every other needle. MACH2S is shown in 8G for coarse gauge applications. The compact WHOLEGARMENT® knitting machine is capable of producing a wide variety of knit accessory items for fashion as well as technical textile applications. The “Mini” WHOLEGARMENT® machine produces novel 3D shoes. For more conventional solutions, SHIMA SEIKI’s SVR series resets the industry benchmark for shaped knitting, with the SVR123SP featuring a special loop presser bed that can produce hybrid inlay fabrics with both knit and weave characteristics. Demand for such unique fabrics are very high across a wide range of applications, from fashion apparel to sports and medical applications, as well as wearable technology and technical textiles.

Upper knitting machine with the latest control system can adjust knitting speed, tension and density; can do complicated knitting, by subdivision control.

Yarn storage: The yarn quantity in the storage barrel was controlled by non-contact sensor, the advantage of this type of sensor is to avoid tension break. Conical magnetic tensioner runs continually and keeps yarn feeding stable, without interrupted start-up or stop problems. The high performance carbon brush dc motor was controlled by micro-processor, it automatically inspects and calculates the average yarn speed to adjust the motor speed, there is no need to wind extra yarn storage barrel, the yarn delivery speed will be much higher Conical magnetic tensioner can adjust range of yarn tension and be suitable for more kind of yarn.

This function can help to continue the remained knitwear when the power is recovered. Needle plate: Needle plates ate replaceable and stable and with high hardness by using insert model.

Operation panel: Humanized monitor screen, clearly shows the data of knitting parameters and stitch, which can be adjusted in the process.


Relative Knitting technology by Mayer & Cie

Mayer & Cie introduced Relanit model based on Relative Knitting Technology at ITMA in 1987. The rest, as they say is history. Relanit continues to remain as one of the most successful models from Mayer & Cie. Continuous innovation over the years has ensured Relanit has always remained way ahead in terms of unmatched productivity and consistent premium quality that too with less energy consumption.

Relative Technology – Distinguishing Feature

Conventional knitting machines usually work with horizontal sinkers. That means the needle moves up and down while the sinker works horizontally. With Relative technology, the sinker too moves up and down. Relatively speaking, it shifts towards the needle. In this movement lies relative technology’s biggest advantage: In comparison to Conventional technology, number of deflection points to form a stitch becomes half thus substantially reducing stress on the yarn. Hence Relanit can successfully process yarn with inferior quality parameters.

Increased rpm compared to Conventional Knitting is another advantage. Most important of all is superior quality of end product. Because yarn is the major cost factor in knitting, Relanit helps knitter to save lot of money – and that means more profit.

Trusted technology, latest edition

While Relative technology in itself has remained unchanged, it has grown to keep pace with technological development. Relanit 4.0, as the name implies, with feeder density 4.0, has already been firmly established in basic S/J segment. This model is particularly popular amongst knitters who intend to knit bulk quantity with same parameters. Relanit 3.2 HS launched in three year back is sure winner when it comes to achieving high production with Elastomeric yarn. Developed primarily to process Elastomer yarn, this model has achieved instant stardom thanks to consistent high quality and production.

It is one of the most productive single jersey machines in the market, both for open width as well as tubular. With up to 45 rpm at a 30 inch diameter Relanit 3.2 HS works with elastomeric yarns just as well as with cotton, the machine’s traditional speciality. Furthermore, the Relanit 3.2 HS uses up to a third less energy than a conventional circular knitting machine.

In addition to the Relanit 3.2 HS, the current Mayer & Cie. portfolio comprises a further eight Relanit models, with striping machines, electronic and mechanical types among them. Every year, around 300 Relanit machines find their way to clients all around the globe. The specialists in cotton yarn are most popular in Turkey, followed by Brazil and China. Overall, Mayer & Cie. has sold 10,000 units, delivered to about 90 countries worldwide. That means about a quarter of all machines sold in the past 30 years belong to the Relanit family. Relanit being a household name in overseas market e.g. the US, UK, Turkey, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, South America export of fabric from India becomes relatively easy. No wonder then leading exporters of India have already started reaping benefits of high production, premium quality and low knitting cost by opting for Relanit Technology.

Future potential: Relative technology for Spinitsystems

Relanit technology is the base of Mayer & Cie.’s latest innovation, Spinit systems. Thanks to Relative Technology a fibre bundle gets converted to top quality single jersey fabric without really imparting any actual twist. The spinning and knitting machine Spinit 3.0 E combines formerly strictly separated processes – spinning, cleaning and knitting. The raw material it works with is a not a regular cotton yarn but a roving which easily breaks when tearing it. This is exactly the material that Spinit 3.0 processes. Relative technology deserves much of the credit for it succeeding in doing so. The fibre bundle travels a much shorter distance and is subject to less tension than would be the case with conventional knitting technology.

Super-industrial, next-generation DTG printing platform by Kornit

Kornit Digital, a global market leader in digital textile printing innovation, has announced the introduction of the Kornit Atlas. Following the success of Kornit’s Storm HD6 and Avalanche HD6 / HDK, the Atlas is the first instance of the company’s nextgeneration direct-to-garment printing platform, providing garment decorators and screen printers a unique tool for mastering the current and future challenges of the textile supply chain.

The Kornit Atlas is a heavy-duty system created for superindustrial garment decoration businesses. It was designed to deliver a typical annual production capacity of up to 350,000 impressions, optimizing production efficiency and cost of ownership. The Kornit Atlas is aimed at highly productive garment decorators, mid to large size screen printers and innovative businesses looking to combine state-of-the art technology with lowest cost of ownership. The system is equipped with new recirculating print heads and comes with a newly developed ink, NeoPigment™ Eco-Rapid. The Kornit Atlas is equipped with a unique printing engine, featuring an enhanced version of Kornit’s HD technology, complemented by a professional RIP (raster image processing) software solution, and produces prints that meet the highest standards of retail quality and durability. The all-new Atlas comes ready for Kornit’s future releases of its cloud-based business intelligence, productivity analytics and optimization software platforms, scheduled to be released in the second half of 2019. It will allow for easy future network connectivity required to support fleet management and optimization of global multi-systems and multi-site enterprises.

Omer Kulka, Kornit’s VP of Marketing and Product Strategy, comments, “This is a huge leap forward, not only for Kornit, but also for the direct-to-garment industry as a whole. We have delivered the Atlas on the collective feedback of thousands of Kornit systems’ operators and on the experience collected from hundreds of millions of printed garments – simply put, the Atlas is the best and most cost-efficient direct-to-garment printing technology for high-quantity and high-quality production requirements. On top of that, the Atlas has been designed in a modular and futureready way, driving quick and easy implementation of new developments in the future. At Kornit, we remain focused on constantly introducing technology that allows the industry’s leading brands to better connect with their customers and to adapt to the rapid changes in consumer preferences, impacting the fashion and apparel industry and are driven by the talent in our global research and development division.”

The new NeoPigment™ Eco-Rapid ink is a main driver of the Atlas’ retail quality prints. It provides an industry-leading white ink opacity, matched to those of conventional screen inks, and meets highest durability standards on multiple fabric types. Its increased colour gamut and saturation allow for deep full tones and precise spot colour matching. The new ink has been developed with sustainability in mind, carries the Oeko-Tex Eco- Passport certification and is GOTS pre-approved. The new Eco- Rapid ink will be integrated with new Storm HD6 and Avalanche HD6 / HDK systems and will also be retrofitted to existing Kornit HD systems. Kornit intends to switch all existing HD customers to NeoPigment™ Eco-Rapid during the year 2019.

The launch of the Atlas completes an extensive period of beta testing, with extremely positive feedback from early adopters. Deborah H. Merrill, President of the Delta Group, parent company of DTG2Go, comments, “Many of the Kornit Atlas’ innovative capabilities, including the wrinkle detection and pallet ergonomics, present clear productivity benefits. The new Eco-Rapid ink provides impressive brilliance and color gamut, meeting all wash test standards with no discernible scent. We are glad we had the opportunity to beta-test the Kornit Atlas and are certain it will become a key component within DTG2Go’s production line.”

Jon Lunt, Co-Founder and Director at T Shirt & Sons, adds, “Using the Atlas, T Shirt and Sons achieved a significant boost in garment decoration production through the peak holiday season. In several weeks of rigorous testing in a high-volume production environment, the Kornit Atlas – with its new Eco-Rapid ink set – was a revelation, doubling our output with very high-quality prints and the reliability this high-pressure season demanded”.
