Highlead GC298-2

Sewing machine with electronic feeding system & thread trimmer

Highlead GC298-2
Highlead GC298-2 industrial sewing machine with electronic feed system, direct drive servo motor & automatic thread trimmer.

The new electronic feeding system allows the operator to control the stitch length via the control panel.

As well as the standard uniform spaced straight stitch; decorative stitch patterns are now possible with the electronic feeding system automatically varying stitch spacing lengths in the same straight line being sewn.       

Automatic thread trimming is included, with thread trimming knives mounted under the needle plate for quick & accurate cutting of thread at the end of a sewing cycle. 

A powerful servo motor is fitted directly onto the sewing machine head. This Highlead Direct Drive motor system offers improvements including: quick start and stop, accurate positioning, low noise, little vibration, smooth acceleration and a feeling of greater responsiveness for the operator.  Direct Drive also eliminates the need for a motor drive belt offering improved safety with no exposed belts or additional belt guards.

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.

An easy to use operator control panel, with built in voice prompts, allows different auto functions to be activated with a press of a button.  For example an operator can set a number of stitches and the machine will stop automatically when the set amount has been sewn. The useful voice prompts read out the buttons function as you press them.

Programmable automatic back-tack stitching & push button controlled reverse feeding, replaces the old style manual reverse lever which is no-longer fitted.  The back-tack function is easy to switch on or off;  with the options of start and end auto back-tacking, which is user adjustable from 1 to 9 stitches. 

A thread nipper device is fitted just above the needle bar area. When activated this device pulls the needle thread end into the opposite side of the material, at the beginning of stitching, thereby improving the appearance, by shortening & controlling the loose thread end, at the start of a sewn seam.

An integrated LED needle light is supplied as standard equipment with the ability to adjust its intensity. 

The Highlead GC298-2 offers true and even stitching with user friendly operation and as a general purpose sewing machine model, it can be used on many types of light to medium weight fabrics & materials.
