What is a servo Motor for an Industrial Sewing machine and why does it matter?
The two major advantages of the Servo sewing motor are that you can control the speed of the motor (adjustable between o-3300RPM) and that they are completely silent when the pedal is not engaged.
Some other advantages include:
- They consume 63% less energy than clutch motors
- 1/3 lighter than clutch motors
- Reverse motor rotation with the flick of a switch
- Nothing to wear or adjust
- Adjusted speed remains no matter how hard the pedal is pressed
Many of our customers find that the sewing machine is much easier to control with a Servo motor because of the variable speed. This is especially helpful for beginner sewers but also for users sewing light to medium-weight leather up to a thickness of 5/16″.
