ERGONOMIC PEDALS

Various models provide single- and two-stage activation of cycling machines or multi-functional control of sewing equipment (low and high speed, trim, and footlift). Pedals match Americas 21st Inc. putty stand and table color and are comparable with its slide pedal bar. Many configurations by way of custom made harnesses, speed controls, etc.

 

SPECIFICATIONS/FEATURES:

Single One-Stage: One-stage function activation in air or electric configurations
Single Two-Stage: Two-stage function for positioning, then activation in air or electric configuration

EMBLEM SEWING STATION
A Single Needle Lockstitch with thread trimmers and electric foot lifter has been configured specially to speed emblem sewing. The sewing machine mechanism has been adapted to permit free-hand sewing of emblems with monofilament and standard threads. Free hands’ sewing eliminates the time-consuming and productivity-sapping turning of shirts to sew each side of the emblem and in most cases it remains on the hanger, eliminating the need of removal and re-hanging of the garment. To attain a quality, accurate sew and speed training, a laser light indicator and special foot ease sewing on the Merrow border to prevent later curling. The Machine has been turned sideways and elevated to give greater visibility of the sewing area and to ease handling, further enhancing productivity. Trained team members/operators can often match and exceed semi-automated equipment while providing flexibility on emblem shapes.

Any brand/model single needle equipped with thread trimmer can be adapted.

HEMMING STATION
Americas 21st has dramatically improved the traditional hemming station. Configured for a variety of sewing heads (blindstitch or single-needle lockstitch depending upon customer preference), the station includes a pedal-operated clamp to hold the trousers and hanger during sewing. The clamp frees the team member’s hands for feeding the garment leg for an accurate, even hem. On blindstitch machines the company adds an air trimmer to speed completion of the operation.

To the left of the clamp an industrial-grade portable steam iron has been added to permit quick pressing of sewn hems for a crisp edge and also to prepare for sewing let-out hems, eliminating the crease. The iron is mounted on a tool balancer to ease handling and speed processing.
