Improved quality by reacting to quality faults faster
Increased operator earnings
Sewing is all about Handling. Research has shown that 80% of the sewing cycle is handling and only 20% is sewing.
The Eton production handling system works like a 3rd hand around the sewing operator. The work piece is presented to the operator in the correct manner every time so that operator-sewing skill is maximized and operator fatigue is decreased. The system is fully automatic and addresses the work piece to the next operator in the sequence so that operator utilization is kept extremely high. Automatic Line Balancing
