Split needle bar to sew complete corners
During normal production both of the needle bars are working. In case the operator would like to form a corner, each of the needle bars can be switched off with the quick split needle bar actuation switch, which is placed on the front side of the machine. After the corner has been finished the disengaged needle bar can be switched back to work. With the help of this device, the operator can sew difficult formations like complete corners with the double needle lockstitch machine.
