150U Series | Bag closing and sealing
The 150U Sewing Head is an heavy duty bag closing system designed for sewing all types of open-mouth sacks. For low outputs the 150U Sewing Head is controlled by a foot switch and the sewing chain is cut by a moving nibbler knife. For medium and high outputs, automatic knife and switchgear are provided. On the automatic version of the 150U Sewing Head, the entry of the sack starts the sewing head and when the sack clears the head, the knife cuts and the motor stops. This automatic sequence applies to machines fitted for plain sewing or sewing through tape.
