Nov 13, 2019 "New feature: Programmable thread tension"

Electronic shoe post-bed series PFAFF 1571/1574/1591

The current generation of PFAFF shoe post-bed machines, that is viewed in the industry as the mother of all shoe machines, is the most frequently copied industrial shoe post-bed machine. Being copied means that PFAFF have done a lot on the machine that is good. However, it also means that the German machinery supplier always have to be one step ahead with regard to technology and that bit better with regard to quality. This is what the market expects, this is what the customer expects from PFAFF. The new “Programmable thread tension” is the latest feature of the electronic shoe post-bed series PFAFF 1571/1574/1591. The key benefit of “programmable thread tension” is that suitable thread tensions can be applied for different material thicknesses  and/or for different seam sequences (as these can be programmed on electronic machines). The tensions can be accessed and/or set via a knee switch or stitch counting. Manual setting of the thread tension, as is common with current shoe machines, is no longer necessary with the programmed thread tension. This increases the quality and significantly improves the process reliability. “Programmable thread tension” is initially available as an option on the electronic machines 1571/1591.


Further advantages of the PFAFF electronical series compared to mechanical shoe machines:

  • Step motor drive - no tolerance of the stitch lengths at different speeds

  • Stitch length of roller presser and wheel feed can be adjusted separately in the operating panel
  • Max. stitch length of roller presser and wheel feed can be adjusted up to 7mm
  • Programmable fullness of roller presser or wheel feed up to 7mm
  • ½ stitch length for corner stitch or programmable stitch length
  • Target stitch
  • Programme creation of decorative seams, double stitch or programmes
  • Storage and transmission of the programmes created via USB, SD card or multi-card reader to other machines
