Top or bottom coverstitch
A tubular or side-seamed body is loaded over the expansion rollers. When loaded, the rollers expand to the proper tension, indexes the shirt under the presser foot, and the sewing cycle is initiated. The operator is free to load a second station. The finished hem is sensed and perfectly oversewn (with stitch-condensing if desired). The threads are trimmed and the garment is automatically stacked.
Approximately 660 bottom hems per hour, depending on material and size of parts. (based on tandem setup)
