DDL-8700 1-needle, Lockstitch Machine

JUKI's DDL 8700 has optimum-balance and the highly rigid machine head was created using the latest 3D-CAD design technology. Thanks to its low vibration and low noise feature, the machine head provides the operator with a comfortable work environment. In addition, the distance from the machine arm to the needle on the front of the machine head is sufficiently wide to allow easy handling of the sewing material.

The machine inherits the desirable features, such as highspeed stitching performance 5,500sti/min, extreme stitching performance, ease of operation, and reliability, from the highly evaluated previous JUKI lockstitch machines.

The DDL-8700 has easy-to-operate functions to achieve improved operability.

By providing a presser foot with a higher lift(13mm), a light touch stitch dial, a throat plate with marker grooves that can be used as guide for seam allowance, and other easy-to-operate functions, the burden on the operator is lightened, and productivity is further increased.

Maintainability was improved.

Enhanced maintainability is ensured by the improved machine head, such as incorporation of an eccentric pin that is used to adjust the feed dog. In addition, JUKI's DDL-8700 is provided with a mounting seat for attachment to improve workability.

Sewing mechanism that demonstrates outstanding responsiveness to materials to be sewn.

By thoroughly investigating and modifying the sewing mechanisms in order to achieve low-tension sewing, the DDL-8700 flexibly responds to various kinds of materials and produces beautiful seams of consistent quality.
