Needle breakage

Needle breakage, a common occurrence at sewing factories, is the enemy of productivity! Finding and collecting broken needles before replacing them with new ones creates extra work and can even put a stop to production.

Needle breakage

If needle breakage brings production to a stop, productivity levels drop drastically!
If broken needles are not found, that is yet another major problem ...such a hassle!

Puckering and material slippage.

Puckering and material slippage, which regularly occur whenever changing items, waste your time by requiring regular adjustment and tuning. If not taken care of, it will end up producing defective product.

Puckering and material slippage.

When an item changes, the line often stops. In particular, it is a common problem with new employees who don't yet have enough sewing skills. But it's not possible to raise their skill level instantly, so what can we do?

Time needed to adjust multiple machines.

In order to maintain the highest sewing quality, all machines must be adjusted in a uniform manner. However, the more machines there are, the more time it takes. Adjusting the machines is a major cause of dropped productivity.

Time needed to adjust multiple machines.

We have to make adjustments whenever the line stops. We cannot do any other work! But the quality can be improved with the slightest change in settings ...if only there was a simple way to make the adjustments!

Don't worry - Brother's innovative new technology
"DigiFlex Feed" can solve these problems.

Less needle breakage means better productivity.

DigiFlex Feed technology feeds the cloth at the appropriate time to prevent needles bending or breaking. Even with thick materials which would normally break the needles, the cloth is not fed through at the moment the needle is inserted, thus there is less stress placed on the needle. The result is less needle breakage and much-improved productivity.

DigiFlex Feed has 4 different "feeding motions" to choose from, which each provides different thread tightening, depending on the material. This will reduce the amount of adjustment needed for each new material, and it also provides stable and high sewing quality for processes that previously relied on an experienced operator.

DigiFlex Feed can be set-up with a single button on the LCD panel. It is possible to deal with difficult materials, quantify the settings that an expert would instinctively use, and choose the correct feeding motion.
Furthermore, transferring the settings between machines which use DigiFlex Feed is possible. Adjustments which have taken a long time can be finished quickly and easily!

Comments from mechanics

Comments from mechanics

Compared to the old pitch dials, which were approximate, the pitch management of DigiFlex Feed is highly precise, meaning the time needed for adjustment is reduced considerably!

At first I resisted the digitalization, but once I started using it, it saved me time. There are fewer calls from the operators, giving me more rest time.

Thanks to the function that allows us to change the feeding motion, making adjustments to the machine is very simple.
