Highlead GC20518-B

Twin Needle Lockstitch machine with needle feed & large hooks

Highlead GC20518-B twin needle large hook

The Highlead GC20518-B is a medium-heavy weight twin needle industrial sewing machine. It produces two lines of parallel lockstitch sewing and features self-lubricated large vertical-axis rotating hooks & bases; which offer approximately twice the thread capacity of standard hooks.

The machine has a synchronized feeding system, with the needle bar and bottom feed mechanisms moving 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.

Standard features include: Dial adjustable stitch length, reverse stitch lever, large hand wheel and with the GC20518-B being of a modern design, it has an automatic lubrication system feeding all important moving parts.

Typical users of this Highlead model stitch uniforms, overalls, jeans, work-wear, covers, curtains, technical textiles & other medium to medium-heavy weight materials.
