Juki Series MS-1261A/DWS High-speed, Feed-off-the-arm, 3-needle Double Chainstitch Sewing System (digital workstation)
Layered Material Sensor
The MS-1261A is provided with digital functions for preventing stitch skipping and stitch gathering as well as for supporting smooth feeding of multi-layered material that is considerably heavier in weight than the other parts of sewn materials. These capabilities are a huge advantage in the sewing of many products and specifically in jeans and workwear production. The machine is provided as standard with the presser foot pressure control function which includes the layered material sensor. This in combination with the belt digital cloth puller, which enables the digital setting of the belt presser foot pressure and feed length, the sewing machine achieves perfect seams.
Prevention of Stitch Skipping
Through improvements to the feed locus needle bending is prevented by decreasing the feed amount when the needle penetrates the material. As a result, the looper thread is securely retained to ensure stable loop formation thereby allowing the looper to catch the needle thread and produce seams without fail. In addition, the backward-moving needle guard helps feed heavy-weight materials smoothly, preventing the occurrence of stitch skipping.
Easier Operation and Energy Saving
The conventional feed-off-the-arm chain stitch machines have specially-shaped machine heads due to the unconventional method of sewing. To improve ease of operation material handling the MS-1261A/DWS has adopted a newly-developed machine head with a head shaped like a general-purpose sewing machine. The MS-1261A/DWS is the first sewing system that comes with an energy-saving high-powered direct-drive motor. As a result, workability and maintainability are improved.
Data on sewing machine adjustments can be made according to the exact product to be sewn and transferred to an Android tablet with the Juki Smart App via NFC. This enables the quick check of uniform settings as well as confirmation of conditions of sewing machines in a sewing line, thereby facilitating fast and accurate setup changes. The operation panel is also provided as a standard with a USB port. Sewing parameters can be numerically managed to ensure stable quality and reduction in the time required for setup changes. Quantified sewing data can be externally taken from the sewing machine using an Android tablet or USB thumb drive so all machines are set up exactly the same. In the Juki Smart App, there are items of management setting (terminal registration), sewing machine data (sewing data), problem-solution chart. In the problem-solution chart, we can generate production graphs, availability charts, and more. For each digital sewing machine data is collected so it can be used for checking the current situation and analyzing it to make improvements.
