The Juki APW-896 machine supports the sewing of straight pockets (with flaps) on suits, jackets and pants. Double-/single-welt sewing can be changed over by the simple touch of a key on the operation panel.

  • The “direct-drive motor”, which transfers the motor power to the machine with no energy loss, not only offers economical benefits due to the power reduction, but also reduces the machine’s vibration and operating noise, thereby helping reduce operator fatigue.
  • The Juki APW-896 machine head is provided with a semi-dry head to eliminate staining with oil from the frame (the needle bar part).

In addition to the APW-895’s functions, the APW-896 supports the sewing of slanted pockets (for sewing slanted flaps).
The world’s first computer-controlled sidewise cutting position of the corner knives enables easy adjustments of the knives simply by operating the panel.

Increased productivity
In addition to the high-speed machine head with a maximum speed of 3,000 sti/min, faster movement (jump and forwarding) of the clamp foot achieves a shorter machine time.

Power consumption is substantially reduced
The reduced energy consumption of the Juki APW-896 ensures superior power-conservation and cost effectiveness. The adoption of a direct-drive system (compact AC servomotor) with superb energy-transfer properties cuts the average power consumption by 75% compared with the forerunner of the Juki APW-896. The power consumption during standby is reduced by as much as 90%.

Time required for setup changing is substantially shortened
The Juki APW-896 machine is equipped with a simple gauge changing mechanism which enables the changing and adjustment of the position of the hook driving shaft saddle from the top of the bed without tilting the machine head. The time required to change a needle gauge is less than a half of that required by conventional machines.

The position of the folding plate and needle does not change even when double-/single-welt sewing is changed over. This means that the folding plate does not need any adjustment.

The Juki APW-896 machine is provided as standard with a micro-adjusting function for adjusting the clamp foot position. This enables both accurate and quick adjustments of the welting width.

Increased sharpness of the center knife
An independently driven (speed can be changed) stepping motor is adopted for the center knife. The center knife therefore remains unaffected by the sewing speed and cuts more sharply and cleanly. In addition, the knife shape is improved to prevent bending and demonstrates increased sharpness when an elastic material is being sewn.
