Having occupied a leadership position for many years with its high-quality products, Juki is a brand that’s well known, highly reputed and enjoys a wide fan base. The Juki Exceed F600 Quilt and Pro is no exception, managing to combine power, reliability and user-friendly features like few other machines can. The F600 promises professional end results, regardless of what fabric you’re working with; sleek and multi-functional, the potential for superior project results is endless with the Juki F600 Quilt and Pro Special.
Features of the Juki F600 Quilt and Pro Special
Like all the product offerings from Juki, the F600 is equipped with a series of function buttons (such as needle up/down, start/stop, thread tie-off and cut, and so on), a speed control facility, stitch selection, LED lighting, a backlit LCD, stitch memory and the like, all explained in detail below.
To ensure beautiful seams and excellent fabric feeding, the F600 is equipped with box-feed technology. With this, you’re assured of the elimination of material shrinkage and shifting, which is absent in conventional feed mechanism (oval motion). Regardless of whether you’re working with light or heavy fabrics, the box-feed technology ensures superior stitch quality.
Stitch Options and Buttonholes
The F600 is equipped with a whopping 625 stitch options (both utility and decorative) and 16 buttonhole types to suit a wide range of needs. The stitches can be selected and their width and length adjusted as required, whereas the buttonholes are all automatically sized as per the size of the button.
Additionally, the machine incorporates a unique sensor system that ensures even and consistent buttonhole stitching, regardless of the fabric type and any overlapping sections. You can also adjust the cutting width of buttonholes in just 3 simple steps.
Automatic Needle Threader
By using the knee-lifting lever (a standard feature in all Juki sewing machines), you can lift or lower the presser foot up to 12 mm.
In order to help you focus better on the finer details and work into the dead of the night without turning all the lights on, the Juki Exceed F600 is equipped with dual LED lights around the sewing and needle area.
