Fashion Collar Setting and Taping
Placket Shirt Manufacturing
Set Collar and Tape in One Operation
A pneumatically controlled collar taping folder designed to shift to the left to insert the tape under the presser foot. Upon signal, the folder shifts to the right to allow the tape to be cut by the edge trimming knife. The tape does not extend to the edge of the placket on either end. Therefore, when the placket is turned, there is no bulk or additional thickness. This improves the overall appearance and reduces problems in the buttonhole and button sew operations.
The collar is aligned to the shirt body. The placket is folded over the leading edge of the collar and placed under the foot. The pieces are sewn approximately 1/2” and a touch of the knee switch shifts the folder to the left and taping starts. As the trailing edge of the collar nears the machine, the operator folds the placket over the collar and touches the knee switch. At this point the folder shifts to the right and the tape is cut by the edge trimming knife.
