The Highlead GC20638-25D SP2 is a special version twin needle long arm sewing machine with automatic thread trimmer, electronic control and Split needle bar system.
The long sewing machine arm allows around 635mm* (25”) clearance to the right of the needles, which is 2½ times bigger than most standard sewing arms.
It features a triple feeding action by way of: bottom feed, needle feed and walking foot top feed and is fitted with two large vertical axis hooks & bases for use with medium to heavy weight materials.
The special split needle bar feature is useful when sewing, for example, corners or tight angular stitching and allows the operator, at the flick of a lever, to disengage one of the needle bars; so the machine can sew with one needle. You can select to disengage or re-engage the left or right needle depending on operation required.
The machine is equipped with an automatic thread trimmer which is mounted under the needle plate for quick & accurate cutting of thread at the end of a sewing cycle. This saves considerable time when compared with manual cutting of threads using scissors etc. The thread trimmer is electronically controlled and uses electric impulse solenoids to move the cutting knives.
The position of the needle is controlled by an electronic needle position motor & controller. This will automatically put the needles in an UP or DOWN position (selectable) at the end of a sewing cycle: reducing the need to use the manual hand wheel. This function is of particular use on long arm machines as the hand wheel is further away from the sewing area.
A safety clutch is fitted to help prevent damage to the hooks, bevel gears and other important parts, should the machine become jammed or over-loaded.
