Automatic linear sewing machine with travelling head for joining and hems.

Hercules is an industrial sewing unit specifically designed for the awning industry. It is the perfect solution for manufacturers who need high quality and fast performance for sewing awning fabrics (acrylic, polyester, technical textiles, PVC, etc). It is equipped with a travelling sewing head that moves along the length of the fabric.

Hercules allows you to work with any sizes of fabrics, even if they are cumbersome. The fabric is held in place and tensionned with the use of clamps to ensure straight seams every time. With our special guides, it is possible to do lateral hems, overlaps, reinforcements and insert a PVC and/or pergola core.
