The operator presents the flat garment to the edge guide and into the spiral folder. An electric eye senses the leading edge and starts the sew cycle. The operator holds the garment against the edge guide until completely into the folder. The electric eye senses the trailing edge and stops the sew cycle leaving the proper spacing for the next garment to eliminate waste. The operator then picks up the next garment and repeats. The conveyor will carry pieces to the knife for automatic cut apart and then to the rear fold-in-half stacker. This unit sews and cuts garments apart then folds the garment in half for the side seam operation.
Approximately 600 pieces per hour, depending on material and size of parts.
Most industrial multi-needle chainstitch machines. (Special gauge parts are available)
