Upper rib metering
Lower rib metering
The sewing cycle and rib knit metering begins automatically by photo cell and continues as the operator presents the sleeves to the machine. As the photo cell senses the trailing edge, the sleeves are automatically cut apart and stacked on an inclined conveyor. At the completion of the bundle, a foot switch is pressed to return the bundle to the operator or the next operation. When the operator discontinues or slows down the loading process, the system automatically stops to maintain the predetermined distance between the parts and save rib knit. The AP23 will accommodate rolled or festooned rib knit, metered from the bottom or top. The electronic metering system ensures consistent quality and repeatability of operation.
All industrial safety stitch, overlock or coverstitch machines.
