Automatic sewing machine for paint rollers
Sector: Sewing for technical applications
Customer requirement: High pile fabric is used for the soft covering of paint rollers. In the production plant, it needs to be stitched together as a continuous tubular strip with the pile surface on the inside. After cutting to the required length, it is necessary to first turn the individual cover before it is mounted on the roller. Our customer not only wanted to optimize guiding of the cutting edges in front of the sewing machine in order to set the seam on the continuous tube with high precision. Together with him, we also considered how to turn the sewn continuous tube completely before cutting in order to exploit additional advantages.
The MK solution: To bundle both objectives in a single solution, MK developed an automatic sewing machine in which the sewn continuous tube is already turned on emerging from the machine. The individual roller covers are only then cut to length. This has significantly improved production efficiency and cost. This is why automatic sewing machines are used worldwide.
