The Merrow 70-Y3B-2 industrial sewing machine from Merrow is the only sewing machine for butted seaming with a STITCH MULTIPLIER built into the sewing head. The machine sews a 5/8” stitch. The stitch count can be doubled while the operator is sewing and is effective for processing loose weaves to higher densities fabrics.
Wide seams of joined fabric are weak at the edges (the selvages) and the 70-Y3B-2 addresses this byDOUBLING THE STITCH COUNT on demand to add strength to seams - when and where it’s needed. To double the stitch count, the operator simply presses the 70-Y3B-2’s STITCH MULTIPLIER LEVER while material is being sewn.

Merrow for High Speed Knit Seaming - The 71-Class


High Speed Joining of Knit Fabric

Make the Merrow 71-1D-2 and 71-1D-7 part of your continuous process

The Merrow 71-Class is the number one solution for seaming knit fabric at high speed. Available as two models, the 71-Class is designed for automated railway or table top use and is suitable for wet or dry environments. The 71-1D-2 is a solution for lightweight material, and the 71-1D-7 is suitable for medium to heavier knits.


THE STITCH: FLAT, SECURE
The 71-class machines sew a flat, 3/8" butted seam at very high speed. At 3/8" the stitch is tighter and more compact, creating a secure joint on lightweight fabric. The 71-Class' stitch will not interfere with subsequent finishing processes.
THE MACHINES: NO DOWNTIME
The 71-Class of machines are durable, reliable, and easy to service. 71-Class machines do not recirculate oil to prevent contamination of internal components and run for decades with regular service. 
  • 4000 RPM Sewing Speed
  • 4-12 SPI
  • 1 or 2 Threads
  • Butted Seam


THE FINISH: WET OR DRY
All Merrow 71-Class machines are available with a durable painted finish or a chemically nickel plated exterior for especially wet or exposed environments. 


THE TABLE: STABLE & MOBILE
The MERROW RAVEN TABLE is designed for MERROW 71-Class machines and is ideal for use in textile finishing operations. It is compact, portable, and accommodates standard motors as well as the Merrow Air Motor.
