The machine is the culmination of JUKI’s leading edge technologies to enable a sleeve setting process, which is the most difficult of all sewing processes, thereby more easily achieving upgraded seam quality. The machine comes with a newly developed belt feed mechanism that offers excellent responsiveness to materials and ease of their handling.
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.
