- Thanks to JUKI's unique right-and-left independent drive system of the top feed belt, right and left feed amounts can be adjusted separately. This prevents the material from slipping out of position, thereby sewing sleeves with a consistent seam allowance. - The machine comes provided with a mechanism for moving the belt feed and intermediate presser up and down alternately, enabling it to eliminate tucks produced at the sleep cap as well as irregular puckering produced in the neighborhood of the sleeve cap. - By introducing the belt feed, the machine reduces scratches to the material made by the feed.
The introduction of active-tension enables the separate setting of suitable thread tensions for sewing sleeves on a portion-by-portion basis. This prevents an inadequate thread tension at a portion where the shirring amount is large or an excessive thread tension at a portion where the shirring amount is small. In addition, specified tension settings can be stored in the memory on a pattern-by-pattern basis and can be reproduced with ease.
- Since the machine comes with a touch-sensitive operation panel with a color LCD, data required for sewing, such as the shirring amount, needle thread tension, and stitch pitch can be entered with ease. - In addition to the CompactFlash TM, the machine is provided as standard with a USB connector. As a result, the use of a USB flash drive or card reader enables the storage and transmission of sewing data by means of various kinds of media (such as a floppy disk, SmartMedia, CompactFlash, and SD card) to enable sewing using the same sewing data among sewing machines in a plant or among subcontract plants. - The operating screen gives a graphic display of an armhole. The operator can, therefore, easily confirm the portion to be sewn and enter/edit data.
The operation mode of a single machine can be changed over between manual, semi-auto and full-auto according to the ease of use for each operator.
