Econosew Sewing Machines

Are projects from leather or heavy synthetics taking longer than they should? Do you find that even your best industrial sewing machines slow down a little when you’re stitching leather together? Are you still using a hand-held skiving knife to thin the edges of leather before stitching the seams together? 

There’s a better way to skive leather pieces and prepare them for sewing. If your company’s leather works are a slow go, it’s time to start automating that task. Make your leather goods easier with the Econosew Skiving Machine.

What is a Servo Motor?

One of the biggest improvements in recent years for industrial sewing machines and skiving machines is the servo motor. Quiet, consistent, and more energy-efficient than the standard clutch motor, the servo will have you and your shop employees working faster and happier. Why should you have a servo motor in your sewing and skiving machines?

  • They are adjustable. No matter how hard the operator pushes the pedal, it will never go faster than it’s set to. 
  • They are 25% lighter than standard clutch motors, with less moving parts that can wear out or need adjustment.
  • They can run for hours and use as much as 80% less energy than a clutch motor
  • Unlike clutch motors, servo motors do not use electricity until the operator touches the foot pedal and engages the motor. 
  • Reversing the motor rotation is easy with the flick of a switch.
  • They are much quieter than a clutch motor and do not vibrate, giving a better quality stitch
  • This energy efficiency means they run cooler than a clutch, generating less heat, helping employees stay comfortable and reducing your utility bill. 
  • When the clutch motor needs to be replaced, you can do so easily with a servo motor

These brushless wonders have quickly become the motor of choice for professionals as well as home sewers when buying new machines or replacing the motor in an older one. 

Safety Tips When Working with a Skiving Machine

While a skiving machine can make leatherworking much faster, like any industrial sewing machine, there are certain safety precautions required. 

  1. Learn how the machine works before starting work on leather or other fabrics. Many errors are due to an operator not fully understanding how the machine is supposed to work.
  2. Visually inspect the machine before using it to ensure that it is in working order before turning it on and engaging the foot pedal. 
  3. Check the height of the pressure foot and adjust if needed for the type of skiving you’re doing.
  4. Check and adjust the height of the blocking board to the width of the desired skiving width. 
  5. Check the height and adjustment of the feeding wheel prior to operating.
  6. Always wear eye, ear, and hand protection when operating the skiving machine. 
  7. Aprons and face shields are also a good idea when working with leather to prevent impact injuries.
  8. Always use the machine with the protective cover over the bell knife. Never operate the machine without it. 
  9. Always keep your work area neat and clean, disposing of scraps properly.
  10. Wear comfortable but fitting clothes when operating the skiving machine. Loose clothing can get caught and damaged, causing injury.
  11. Tie up hair that’s longer than shoulder length to prevent catching in the machine. 
  12. Use a brush to clean the machine at the end of the day, and remove any stuck pieces with a stick or a brush. 
  13. If the blade on the bell knife seems dull, it may be time for a sharpening. 

With equipment like this, it’s important to continue to use proper safety measures and care to ensure safe and efficient operation, every day.
