Based on the market-proven design of the LU-2210N-7 and – 2260N-7 Series, the LU-2216N-7 / -2266N-7 are developed with a longer distance from the machine arm to needle a full 650mm. The long arm unison-feed lockstitch machine with a vertical-axis large hook with an automatic thread trimmer is best suited to processes that require a longer distance from the machine arm to needles, such as reinforcement stitching and topstitching in tape attachment processes for sewing furniture or car seats.
With the long distance from the machine arm to the center of the needle, a full 650mm, the machine is ideally suited to reinforcement stitching processes for attaching tape and intermediate sewing processes such as topstitching for large workpieces.
Both the LU-2216N-7 (1-needle) and LU-2266N-7 (2-needle) achieve the maximum sewing speed of 3,000rpm. With this capability, the machine demonstrates higher productivity when sewing long lengths of materials.
With fully automatic lubrication, the cumbersome task of oiling the machine by hand is eliminated.
Oil is forcedly circulated through the faceplate by a plunger pump. This prevents oil leakage from the faceplate.
The presser foot goes up as high as 16mm. This ample lift ensures easy setting of heavy materials on the machine and comfortable operation.
The vertical stroke of the presser foot and walking foot (amount of alternating vertical movement) can be easily changed with the large dial mounted on the top of the machine head. The sewing speed is automatically regulated based on the vertical stroke setting. This ensures ideal sewing conditions at all times.
In processes such as the sewing of heavy materials or hard-to-feed multi-layered portions, a press on the DL switch instantly changes over the vertical stroke of the walking foot and presser foot.
The result is beautifully produced seams without stitch gathering.
With the rigidly moving knife shaft and optimal knife movement, the thread trimmer cuts thick thread without error. Moreover, no adjustment is required even when the yarn count is changed.
The gauge (hook, bobbin, walking foot, presser foot, and feed) used in the LU-2210N/-2260N Series is also used in this model. All of the parts used in your LU-2210N/-2260N sewing machines can also be used in the LU-2216N/-2266N machines. In addition, the knife and thread tension components are also the same.
With its powerful feed and optimal feed locus, the machine smoothly feeds materials without stitch gathering even when running at a higher sewing speed.
