Lockstitch GT-280


Single Needle Direct Drive Lockstitch with Automatic Thread Trimmer for Light and Medium Fabrics

KRAFT GT-188 – the starting model of the new series of “smart” industrial sewing machines from the brand KRAFT, for sewing light and medium fabrics. A compact LCD display with an intuitive interface is integrated into the body of the sewing machine, due to which engineers were able to install a more powerful motor and optimize the design as a one. The control panel is located in the visual and contact areas of the operator, so you can make adjustments even while sewing, without interrupting the process.

The smooth start function allows for a smooth start of the stitch with a gradual increase in sewing speed. To do this, you must activate the corresponding option on the control panel and set the number of initial stitches that will be performed at minimum engine speed.

Automatic Thread Trimmer

The machine is equipped with a new automatic thread cutting system. It is an important advantage in choosing a sewing machine. That option increases machine productivity by 33% compared to a machine without it.

Built-in servo motor

KRAFT GT-188 is equipped with energy efficient servo-motor built-in from famous Taiwanese Ho-Hsing. Revolutions from the engine are transmitted directly to the main shaft, without a clutch or belt. Cooler significantly reduces the temperature of the engine and control unit.

Integrated panel

KRAFT GT-188 is equipped with an innovative control panel, which is conveniently located above the sewing platform, in the contact and visual areas of the machine operator. That solution allows you to change the parameters of sewing much easier.

Stitch adding

There is a function button for adding one stitch in the needle guide area. This option will be useful during the rotation at the corners of the products.

LED light

Built-in LED-illumination is practically placed directly above the needle, providing excellent illumination of the entire working area of the bag platform. Available brightness adjustment of the lighting in two positions.

Built-In Spooler

The device for winding is built into the head of the sewing machine, allowing you to carry out preparatory work on winding the thread on the bobbin as quickly as possible.
