Japan: Juki launches AMS-251 single needle CNC sewing machine
Juki, the Japanese pioneer of sewing machinery, has unveiled its latest innovation – AMS-251, a single needle CNC sewing machine.
The machine can not only automatically sew sewing patterns stored in memory but also produce highestquality seams when sewing decorative stitches on car seats, luxury bags and school bags. The machine head turning mechanism allows the sewing machine head to rotate at 180 degrees. The mechanism also makes it possible to sew the material back and forth, and right and left, thereby enabling stitching of complicated patterns, and achieving uniform and high seam quality.
It is made possible by slip- ring system which is adopted for turning the machine head. As a result, even while sewing a complicated-shape sewing pattern, it is possible to perform sewing continuously without stopping the machine and taking the machine head to its initial point.
With a large sewing area of 100 cm (width) x 60 cm ( length), large-size products can be sewn, leading to increased productivity. In addition, the machine head of AMS-251 can go up by 5 cm to allow the operator take out finished products and place the next sewing material on the sewing machine with ease, thereby reducing the set- up time.
