Highlead Sewing Machines


Highlead GG0068-1

Zigzag Sewing Machine

with standard zigzag & 3 step Zigzag stitching

Highlead GG0068 industrial zigzag machine

The Highlead GG0068-1 is a high speed zigzag sewing machine, for industrial production use, which features a stitch pattern change-over device.

The stitch pattern change-over device allows the operator to easily switch between standard zigzag stitching and 3-step zigzag stitching for increased versatility.  In the past you would have had to purchase 2 separate machines (or manually change cams) to get both of these stitch patterns.  Now operators can select: standard zigzag or 3 step zigzag by using a change-over lever which is fitted with-in the sewing machine arm.
This high speed Zigzag sewing machine features an automatic lubrication system which ensures the durability required for industrial use.

The GG0068-1 produces a high quality softly finished seam, with a dynamically balanced stitch formation. Its design incorporates elements to reduce the typical problems associated with low tension Zigzag sewing.

When sewing with the standard zigzag pattern: a stitch width of up-to 5mm is available. This increases up-to 10mm wide when sewing with the 3 step zigzag pattern.
