High-quality stitches which match the Soft-to-the-touch stitches help create a as if sitting on a sofa
The machine comes with JUKI's unique alternating vertical movement mechanism, where the presser foot's amount of alternating vertical movement does not change even when the material weight changes.
The amount of alternating vertical movement of the presser foot does not decrease even when a heavy-weight material is sewn. Therefore, the efficiency of the walking foot does not decrease so as to prevent uneven material feed.
The amount of alternating vertical movement is adjustable up to 6.5mm according to the weight of the material or any multi-layered part of it.
The PLC-1700 Series machines have substantially been improved in their overall "efficiency of feed. " The machine smoothly handles large and heavy-weight materials with an increased efficiency of feed, thereby producing consistent seams free from irregular stitches (differences in stitch length).
JUKI's unique feed mechanism has been employed to eliminate stitch gathering, which is likely to occur with the conventional feed mechanism (elliptical-feed).
The rectangular-feed locus produces an increased efficiency of feed with consistency from the beginning to the end of sewing.
Since the feed dog's amount of lift is small, material flopping, noise and vibrations can be reduced.
The machine is able to perform sewing with low-count thread under a higher tension, which is difficult for the conventional single-tension method, with ease. The machine comes with a dual-tension thread tension system (two tension posts are used for a single thread).
The basic performance (specifications) has been dramatically improved.
The presser foot lift is as high as 16mm, allowing the user to handle the material with ease.
The vertical strokes of the presser foot and walking foot (alternating vertical movement) can be easily changed using a large dial mounted on the top surface of the machine head. In addition the sewing speed is automatically adjusted with the set value. With this feature, ideal sewing conditions are maintained at all times.
