Demonstrations will be performed on the SDS-ONE APEX3 design system that is at the core of the company's "Total Knitting System" concept. With comprehensive support of the knit supply chain, APEX3 integrates knit production into one smooth and efficient workflow from planning and design to machine programming, production and even sales promotion. Photo-realistic simulation capability allows Virtual Sampling to minimize the need for actual sample-making, effectively reducing time, material and cost while increasing presentation quality in the sampling process. APEX3 also supports design and simulation in a variety of other industries such as circular knitting, weaving, pile weaving and printing.
