Get Ready to Fall in Love with Your New PL-980 Series

Even though it’s a high-powered industrial machine, the servo motor makes it much quieter. Smooth, fast, and quiet stitching means you’ll be able to sew longer and get bigger projects completed quickly.

Need to put the brakes on that high-speed stitch? Adjust the servo motor for a slower speed anytime.

    JUKI PL-980 Series FAQs

    Q: What kind of needles do you use in the PL-980 Series?

    A: The needles that come with your JUKI are the Organ DPx5(#16).

    Q: Where does the machine oil go?

    A: A pan directly underneath the machine supplies oil to the machine with a cotton wick. Lift the machine up and over while on the table to access the oil tank. You must keep the machine’s oil level consistently at the «high» mark, either by adding more oil or draining it and refilling it as needed. If the oil pump can’t get the oil into the machine, it can cause serious problems later.

    Q: What kind of oil does this machine require?

    A: Much like motor oil in your car, you need a specific type to keep this machine running. The PLN-985 requires JUKI New Defrix Oil No.1, equivalent to ISO VG7.

    Q: What size table can I get with this machine?

    A: Our table is 22"w x 47"l, with legs. It includes a knee pedal, a foot pedal, and a left-hand drawer for accessories.

    Q: Does the PL-980 Series make buttonholes?

    A: No. The PL-980 Series only does straight stitching, with a horizontal bar on the right side for a reverse stitch.


    THE ADVANTAGES OF A SERVO MOTOR:

    • They use up to 90% less power than clutch motors
    • They are 1/3 lighter than clutch motors
    • With a flick of the switch you can reverse motor rotation
    • No parts to wear out or adjust.
    • No matter how hard you press the foot pedal configured speed remains the same

    Because of Servo motor speed control, most users find the machine is easier to use. Both beginning and seasoned sewers find this feature helpful when stitching projects that don't demand high-speed stitching.
