Highlead GC1998 MDZ lockstitch industrial sewing machine with automatic under-bed thread trimmer featuring a direct drive motor system. A powerful compact servo motor is fitted directly inside the sewing machine head, which replaces the bulky motor fitted under the table on conventional models.
The Highlead Direct Drive motor system offers improvements including: quick start and stop, accurate positioning, low noise, little vibration, smooth acceleration and greater responsiveness for the operator.
Highlead Direct Drive also eliminates the need for a motor drive belt (connecting conventional table mounted motors to the sewing machine head) offering improved safety with no exposed belts or additional belt guards etc.
GC1998-MDZ is equipped with a 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 position of the needle is controlled electronically and will automatically put the needle in an UP or DOWN position at the end of a sewing cycle: reducing the need to use the manual hand wheel.
This model has a longer arm with 300mm clearance to the right of needle, which is around 15% bigger than conventional models, and makes it easier to move and position materials etc.
