The operator presents the material through a downturn hemmer and under the presser foot. Sewing begins automatically. Each successive part is sewn with minimal gap to reduce elastic or rubber waste. The variable speed puller runs faster than the sewing speed and creates a larger gap. The retro-reflective eye senses the leading edge of each part and automatically cycles the scissor cutter to separate the parts. The side conveyor carries the leading edge to the puller and prevents the gathered material from jamming. The 1536 includes automatic stop and start to minimize elastic between pieces and ergonomically designed tabling for stand-up operation.
Approximately 900 pieces per hour, depending on material and size of parts.
Most industrial machines.
