New function


Retraction of Sequins


The retraction function can be activated in the parameter settings of the T8.


Instead of lifting and lowering the sequin device as a whole, only the foot is retracted. For thread trimming the sequin device is not lifted. This increases the performance of the machine.


In addition, the foot is retracted if no further use of the sequin device is required within the next stitches.

ZSK Auto Select Bobbin Changer

New product


Auto Select Bobbin Changer

Art.Nr.: 270.021.921

The Auto Select Bobbin Changer knows the position of the magazine at any time. In the T8-2 control unit, the needle and bobbin and thus also conductive top and bottom yarn, thick top and bottom yarn for 3D effects as well as the same colour top and bottom yarns can be automatically assigned.


Production times are shortened and possible mistakes can be avoided.


Even with the combination of thin and thick top yarn in a pattern, the Auto Select Bobbin Changer is a great help. The auto select bobbin changer can be installed on all ZSK flatbed machines and (upon request)on tubular machines with the old tubular arm.


If the bobbin changer is installed on tubular machines, caps and tubular goods cannot be produced.
