The Highlead GC20638-25D FL2 is a lockstitch twin needle long arm walking foot sewing machine which features a selectable split needle bar system; together with automatic thread trimmer and electronic control.
The long sewing machine arm allows up-to 635mm* (25") clearance to the right of the needles, which is approximately 2.5 times bigger than most standard machine arms.
The solid long arm is factory cast and offers greater strength & stability when compared to a cut and piece extended arm.
It features a triple feeding action by way of: bottom feed, needle feed and walking foot top feed and is fitted with two large vertical axis mounted hooks & bases for use with medium to heavy weight materials.
The special split needle bar system is particularly useful when sewing corners or tight angular stitching and allows the operator, at the flick of a lever, to disengage one of the needle bars; so the machine can sew with one needle. You can select to disengage or re-engage the left or right needle depending on the type of corner you are stitching.
The position of the needle is controlled by an electronic needle position motor & controller. This will automatically put the needles in an UP or DOWN position (selectable) at the end of a sewing cycle: reducing the need to use the manual hand wheel. This function is of particular use on long arm machines as the hand wheel is further away from the sewing area.
A safety clutch is fitted to help prevent damage to the hooks, bevel gears and other important parts, should the machine become jammed or over-loaded.
The Highlead GC20638-25-D FL2 is a feature packed machine and as well as its split need bar system, triple feeding (bottom feed, needle feed & walking foot) and automatic thread trimming, it comes as standard with programmable auto back-tack, auto reverse, knuckle quick reverse and built in stitch program module.
It is fitted with the latest quiet & energy efficient electronically controlled heavy duty servo motor, which only runs when you are actually sewing; If you pause or stop: the motor stops immediately and is almost silent.
The GC20638-25-D is a long arm, twin needle, needle feed, walking foot machine with UBT, for use on medium to heavy weight materials and is aimed at job applications where a standard arm sewing machine is not suitable.
