One of the leading Japanese machine manufacturers Shima Seiki celebrates its 55th anniversary. It was a fabulous Japanese celebration of six decades of innovation, which was held on 16 and 17 November at Wakayama Big Whale indoor arena, Wakayama City, Japan.
The leading Japanese machine manufacturer, which is currently experiencing unprecedented demand for its advanced machinery and design systems, graciously hosted over 1500 guests around the world to celebrate its anniversary.
In the main event, guests attended from China, Hong Kong, Korea and other parts of Asia like India, Bangladesh and elsewhere in South Asia, Italy, UK, Spain and Portugal, Eastern Europe, Turkey, Africa, USA and South America.
For the first time, Shima Seiki showed a very special fashion show that combined real models and animated versions of 3D models created on its own SDS ONE APEX3 Design Systems.
The company was founded by current Chairman, Dr. Masahiro Shima when he invented the world’s first seamless glove knitting machine at a time when all clothing was made using traditional and labor intensive cut and sew methods. Shima is currently producing around 70 machines per day with approximately 1400 staff, an unparalleled position in the company’s history. Such strong demand is now driving the company to invest more and more in the automation of its production processes, and this was very evident during a tour of the factory.
