An electronically controlled leg cuff setting station. This unit is designed to form rib knit tape up to 8 inches wide into a cuff band and sew the band onto the legs. The station consists of a sewing head and power console, electronic metering device, automatic cut-apart knife, tandem variable speed pullers and ergonomic tabling with pneumatic bundle clamp.
The sewing cycle and rib knit metering begins automatically by photo cell and continues as the operator presents the leg panels to the machine. As the photo cell senses the trailing edge, the legs are automatically cut-apart as they fall behind the machine. The bundle integrity is maintained by the pnuematic bundle clamp. When the operator discontinues or slows down the loading process, the system automatically stops to maintain the predetermined distance between the parts and save rib knit. The electronic metering system ensures consistent quality and repeatability of operation.
Available for most industrial overlock & coverstitch machines.
Approximately 1230 pieces per hour with overlock sewing head, depending on material and size of parts.
