In 1962, Masahiro Shima founded Shima Seiki, with the aim of
developing a fully automated seamless glove-knitting machine.
Following this success, the company expanded into flat knitting
machines. However, the age of the computer brought a whole new era
for Shima Seiki. By committing to computerization in its mainstream
products, Shima Seiki gradually began to stand apart from its
competitors. Shima Seiki's focus on computer-aided knit design and
programming, in fact led to a revolution in the fashion industry.
Written by the inventor himself, this book looks at how Masahiro
Shima developed both the technology and philosophy to enable his
company to be market leaders in industrial knitting machines - and
fundamentally change the fashion industry. This culminated in the
launch of the company's Wholegarment knitting machine in 1995,
which altered forever the way knitted garments are produced, and
which today is used by fashion manufacturers across the world.
