Highlead GC0518-BD (heavy version)

Needle Feed Sewing Machine

with Automatic Thread Trimmer

& Double Capacity Large Hook

Highlead GC0518-BD

 

The Highlead GC0518-BD is a heavy duty needle feed sewing machine which features a large hook and automatic thread trimmer. 

The combined feed motion, longer needle bar stroke and longer take-up stoke allows this model to handle heavier materials when compared with a standard needle feed or drop feed machine.

The needle bar and bottom feed mechanism move in time: to combine into a more stable motion which helps prevent uneven material feeding & ply shifting etc. and results in a better and more precise stitched seam.

Stitch length variations are greatly reduced when sewing and changing between high & low speed or forward & reverse feeding. 

The fitting of a large hook & base as standard, reduces the number of bobbin changes and helps when using the thicker threads associated with heavier materials.

The GC0518-BD model is capable of using a sewing needle up to size 22/140 and has thread handling capabilities of up to a metric size 20 (including 60,40,30,25,20 etc.).

The machine is equipped with a automatic thread trimmer which is mounted under the needle plate for quick & accurate cutting of thread at the end of a sewing cycle. This saves considerable time when compared with manual cutting of threads using scissors etc.

The position of the needle is controlled by an electronic needle position motor & controller.  This will automatically put the needle in an UP or DOWN position at the end of a sewing cycle: reducing the need to use the manual hand wheel. 

The Highlead GC0518-BD is a feature packed heavy duty machine and as well as needle feed, large double capacity hook & automatic thread trimming; it comes as standard with programmable auto back-tack, auto reverse, knuckle quick reverse and stitch count operator control module.

It is fitted with a full sized high torque quiet & energy efficient electronically controlled AC servo motor, which only runs when you are actually sewing; If you pause or stop: the motor stops immediately and is almost silent.
