Juki has launched the new AMS-221F series computer-controlled cycle machine with input function that improves seam quality and conducts production control through the interaction between the sewing machine and the Juki’s exclusive application software. Juki is a Japanese manufacturer of industrial sewing machines and an industrial machine manufacturer.

From April 11, 2019, Juki launches, both in the domestic and overseas markets, the new computer-controlled cycle machine with input function, AMS-221F series that improves seam quality and enables production control by interlocking the sewing machine with the Juki’s exclusive application software. Once the operator places a sewing material on the sewing machine and starts it, the sewing machine automatically carries out the entire steps of sewing sequence from sewing to thread trimming according to the stitch data, thereby contributing to the labour saving, deskilling, and productivity improvement. This sewing machine is available for a broader range of sewing applications such as sewing of air bags, attaching of labels, sewing of parts of sneakers, decorative stitching of jeans pockets, the company said in a press release.

Stitches on these sewing materials / products constitute essential parts of their designs. This means that the beauty of stitches largely determines the quality of finished products. The AMS-221F series further enhances seam quality. The improved software for and the increased rigidity of the ‘feed mechanism’ that moves the sewing material up and down and to the right and left not only help reduce the vibration during operation to 3.6 db but also increase accuracy of needle entry points. As a result, consistent seams can be produced without slippage of materials. In addition, the sewing machine is able to sew heavy-weight materials smoothly since the needle’s penetrating power into the material is increased by the newly-developed retry function.

Furthermore, the AMS-221F series is the first AMS series that introduces the highly-evaluated bird’s nest preventing function (for reducing tangling-in of thread at the beginning of sewing) of the JUKI LK-1900BNB (computer-controlled bartacking machines). The operation panel with input function for enabling creation of stitch data has been renewed for improving operability and enabling two-way communication by means of mobile devices (such as Android devices) as well as the production control by means of the application software (Juki’s exclusive application software).

Information on the sewing machine operation is displayed real time on the mobile device to allow easy control of production progress. In addition, the aggregated data can be plotted on charts. This can be used for production improvement activities. Juki simultaneously launches the semi-dry head, post-bed, unison-feed, lockstitch sewing system with vertical-axis large hook with thread trimmer, PLC-2700V-7” that has also been developed for digitalisation of sewing operation and is added with two-way communication feature. The number of Juki sewing machines incorporating the communication feature has now increased to nine including the aforementioned two new models. Juki is continuing to support the customers with its Juki Smart Solutions utilising those sewing machines for further increase in productivity of sewing lines. (GK)
