Needle feed industrial sewing machine with auto thread trimmer
The GC0518A-D3 is the needle feed version of Highlead's single needle industrial sewing machine with automatic thread trimming system.
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, and results in a precise stitched seam.
The combined dual action feed motion allows this model to handle difficult to feed materials, & some heavier fabrics, when compared with a standard drop feed machine (i.e. slippery fabrics, PVC/plastics, technical textiles, work-wear, uniforms, rain-wear, outdoor wear, sportswear etc.) Uneven material feeding and puckering rarely occur, with the machine better able to respond to changes in the materials being stitched.
Stitch length variations are greatly reduced when sewing and changing between high & low speed or forward & reverse feeding. This can be of use when you are hemming or sewing in long runs at high-speed (i.e. bed sheets, curtains, blinds, banners, covers etc.).
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 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 GC0518A-D3 is a feature packed time served machine and as well as needle feed & automatic thread trimming; it comes as standard with programmable auto back-tack, auto reverse, auto thread control wiper, knuckle quick reverse and built in digital stitch count program module.
It is fitted with a full sized premium 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.
The Highlead GC0518 series has been in use by clothing and textile manufacturers, around the world, for over 20 years. Its robust construction & time proven design offers users a versatile factory rated production tool.
