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 can save considerable time when compared with manual cutting of threads using scissors etc.
A powerful direct drive energy saving servo motor is fitted directly onto the sewing machine head; replacing the bulky motor usually found mounted under the table on conventional models.
The 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 (connecting conventional table mounted motors to the sewing machine head) offering improved safety with no exposed belts or additional belt guards.
Power consumption on the GC188-MDZY series is up-to 50% lower when compared with conventional V belt driven models; offering long term energy savings.
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.
