The operator folds the pant leg, aligns the hemmed or cuffed end and presents it to the presser foot. A photo cell senses the leading edge, drops the presser foot and begins the sewing cycle with a backlatch automatically. Electronic active edge guiding system controls the part during the sew cycle while the operator prepares the next pant leg. When the seam is complete, the machine stops, the thread chain is cut and stacked automatically.
Approximately 600 closed legs per hour, depending on material and size of parts.
