The GC0518 is the needle feed version of Highlead's popular industrial flatbed single needle lockstitch sewing machine. The needle bar and bottom feed mechanism move in time: to combine into a more stable motion which helps prevent uneven material feeding & ply shifting etc. and results in a better and more precise stitched seam. The combined feed motion allows this model to handle heavier materials when compared with a standard drop feed machine. The Highlead GC0518 model can be set at up to 5000 stitch per minute and is fitted with an automatic pump driven lubrication system: feeding all important components, including the hook & base.
Link-type needle feed, link thread take-up, and thread catching by rotary hooks are incorporated in the machine to produce lockstitch.
The arm shaft and hook shaft are driven by bevel gears.
It features a knob-type stitch regulator, a lever-type reverse feeding mechanism, and automatic lubrication.
Needle feed motion permits more stable feeding and can prevent shifting in layers.
Minimum stitch length variation when sewing mode changing between high speed and low speed or between forward feeding and reverse feeding. It is available for stitching silk, nylon, synthetic fabrics, etc.
