Heavy Duty Lockstitch Sewing Machine with Automatic Thread Trimmer
Higher + Longer Arm & Dial Adjustable Walking Foot
|The GC0388-D industrial sewing machine, from the Highlead range, is designed to stitch medium to heavy weight materials.
It features a top feed walking foot and bottom feed system that is suitable to sew materials such as leather, synthetics, canvas, plastics, technical textiles, webbing, upholstery, tarpaulin + heavier than normal standard fabrics.
The sewing arm is higher & 30% longer* than most standard machines: allowing additional sewing clearance for larger heavy items. (Clearance up-to: Height 150mm x Length 335mm)
The balanced sewing machine head benefits from automatic lubrication to reduce wear & tear, resulting in improved durability, lower noise levels, smoother running and minimal maintenance costs.
The top mounted adjusting dials allow for greater versatility, with you able to set & match the walking foot climbing height to a particular job. Useful for operators who often have to switch between differing materials and applications. This offers a real advantage, when compared with older style fixed walking foot models, by adding the ability to quickly & easily change between differing thicknesses and different weights of materials while maintaining a positive feeding action with a balanced stitch formation.
The machine is equipped with an 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. The thread trimmer is electronically controlled and uses electric impulse solenoids to move the cutting knives.
The position of the needle is controlled by Highlead's integrated electronic controller. This will automatically put the needle in an UP or DOWN position (user selectable) at the end of a sewing cycle; reducing the need to use the manual hand wheel. For example: setting the machine to stop with the needle down is useful when turning corners, or changing direction, as it allows the work to be turned and stitching to continue uniformly.
The fitting of a double capacity hook & base as standard, reduces the number of bobbin changes and helps when using the thicker threads associated with heavier materials.
A large stitch length is available up to 8mm and a high foot lift of up to 16mm offers good clearance when stitching bulky/heavy items.
The Highlead GC0388D is a feature packed heavy duty machine and as well as the higher/longer arm and automatic thread trimming, it comes as standard with programmable auto back-tack, auto reverse, knuckle quick reverse and built in stitch count program module.
It is fitted with a premium full sized quiet & energy efficient electronically controlled heavy duty motor, which only runs when you are actually sewing; If you pause or stop: the motor stops immediately and is almost silent. A time proven Mitsubishi designed & licenced electronic control system is utilized for operation of the automatic devices, including the thread trimmer and servo motor.
The GC0388-D is a time proven general purpose walking foot machine with thread trimmer, for use on medium to heavy weight materials and is suited to sewing, for example: car trimming, leather goods, belting, slings, canvas, tents, technical structures, covers, awnings, plastic/PVC articles, inflatable structures, handbags, kitbags, rucksacks, outdoor wear, camping goods and much more.
