In industries that require efficient bag packaging, such as animal feed, agriculture, and chemicals, having reliable bag closing equipment is crucial. The Newlong Sewing Machine DS-9C high-speed industrial sewing head is a popular choice for businesses seeking to improve their bag closing operations. In this article, we will explore the key features of the Newlong DS-9C, how it works in conjunction with a power infeed system, and the benefits it brings to bag closing processes.
Key Features of the Newlong Sewing Machine DS-9C
The Newlong DS-9C is designed to close various types of bags, such as kraft paper, cotton, and woven polypropylene, at speeds of up to 2,700 stitches per minute. Its sturdy construction and high-quality components ensure durability and reliability, making it an ideal choice for high-throughput production lines. With an automatic thread chain cutter, the DS-9C provides clean and secure bag closures.
Enhancing the DS-9C with a Power Infeed System
A power infeed system can be added to the Newlong DS-9C sewing head to further improve efficiency and quality. This system automatically pulls in the top of the bag, aligns it, and ensures consistent and secure closures. An attachment can also be added that folds the top of the bag over before sewing providing a slightly cleaner appearance and tighter seal.
A power infeed system allows the same operator to place and fill a bag and then quickly guide it into the bag closing system without too much effort, thus greatly increasing efficiency.
The power infeed system works in conjunction with the sewing head through a series of steps:
- Bag guiding: A bag guide aligns the top of the bag with the sewing head’s infeed.
- Power infeed: Driven belts or rollers pull the folded bag top into the sewing head, maintaining tension and speed.
- Bag top folding: A folding mechanism folds the top of the bag over for a clean, consistent finish.
- Sewing: The sewing head sews the folded edge using a continuous chain stitch.
- Thread chain cutting: An automatic cutter trims the thread chain, leaving a neat and secure closure.
Benefits of the Newlong Sewing Machine DS-9C and Power Infeed System
Investing in a high-speed bag sewing head like the Newlong DS-9C, combined with a power infeed system, brings several benefits to your bag closing operations:
- Increased efficiency: The fast sewing speed and automated infeed process reduce the time spent on bag closures, allowing for higher throughput.
- Improved consistency: The power infeed system ensures proper alignment and folding of bag tops, resulting in uniform closures.
- Enhanced durability: The Newlong DS-9C’s robust construction ensures long-lasting performance, reducing downtime and maintenance costs.
- Reduced labor requirements: The automation of the bag closing process allows for fewer manual interventions, lowering labor costs.
