The operator folds the circular rib knit piece in half to form a band and places it over the expansion guide rollers. The rollers automatically expand for loading the body. The body is loaded over the rollers and band and a touch of the start sensor expands the rollers to sew position and indexes the parts under the presser foot and sew cycle begins. The operator is free to load a second machine. When the finished seam is sensed the parts are oversewn a predetermined distance, thread chain is cut, and the part is automatically stacked.
