An automatic workstation for sewing children’s circular rib knit bottom bands on sweat shirts. This unit incorporates a cylinder arm overlock sewing head with vacuum thread trimmer, electronic controls, electronic active edge guiding system and pneumatic expansion rollers with automatic stacker.
The operator folds the circular rib knit piece in half to form a band and places it over the expansion guide rollers. The rollers automatically expand for loading the body. The body is loaded over the rollers and band. A touch of the start sensor expands the rollers to sew position and indexes the parts under the presser foot and sew cycle begins. The operator is free to load a second machine. When the finished seam is sensed the parts are oversewn a predetermined distance, thread chain is cut, and the part is automatically stacked.
Approximately 510 bottom bands per hour,
depending on material and size of parts.
