FEED MECHANISM
Unison Feed Mechanism:

It is a combination of three feed mechanisms Conventional feed mechanism Needle feed mechanism

Alternating presser foot

TIMING OF THE LOOPER TO NEEDLES


Angle for installing the looper and position of the looper holder bracket There should be a clearance of 0~0.1mm between the point of the looper and the scarf of the needle

LOOPER LEFT RIGHT MOVEMENT and LOOPER SETTING DISTANCE

ADJUSTING THE TIMING OF THE RETAINER LOOPER

Position of the retainer loop

There should be a clearance of 0.5mm between the needle and the point of the retainer looper. Adjustment is made by loosening b as shown in the fig.

Timing of the retainer looper to the needle When the needle, moving from top to bottom of Its stroke, enters the triangle of the looper thread, the retainer Looper should be at the extreme right end of its travel The clearance between the retainer looper and the right side of looper should we 0.5 mm.

The clearance between the retainer looper and the top surface of the looper blade at 0.1mm

ADJUSTING THE NEEDLE GUARD

Position of the needle guard

When the needle is closest to needle guard, there should be clearance of 0~0.1mm between the right side of the needle and the guard.

ADJUSTING THE FEED DOG & STITCH LENGTH

When needle bar is at top of its stroke, the feed dog teeth should be 1~1.2mm above the top surface of the needle plate.

ADJUSTING THE STITCH FORMATION

Thread tension adjustment It can be adjusted by adjusting the mount tension devices on the machine ( The tension should be as light as possible ).

Position of the needle thread eyelets Secure needle thread eyelets should be at the top end of the slot. ( The needle thread eyelets can be raised to tighten the needle thread )
