The heart of the Slim Line Clamping System is the Clamping Chassis. This is how the top and bottom windows are loaded to hold the fabric and backing to be embroidered. The single lever opens, closes and locks the windows, sandwiching the fabric and backing in between the top and bottom windows. The clamping windows mount to the base and clamp arms and the mounting adapter attaches to the sides. All this in a package that is only 1” high.
The Slim Line 1 has (9) window sizes available, each best suited for particular size applications. We offer different window sizes because everyone wants to sew the largest design in the space available. Fitting a window inside a pocket requires choosing a window size that will fit inside the pocket or opening while still leaving enough room for the sewing arm to move. Since the size of the openings is almost unlimited, we have a range of sizes and shapes that will work for most applications. Some windows have more specific uses. The 2” round is great for monograms and initials, the 5” round is great for sewing the back of caps. The right & left Side of Cap windows are used to sew on the sides of caps. And of course the (5) rectangular windows give you a range from 2.5” to 6×5” and sew flat as well as tubular applications.
Window Sets for the Slim Line 1 come as a 3 piece set. There is a base adapter window that fits into the base of the clamp chassis, and 2 top clamping windows. The stainless steel clamping window, (thin fabric) is used for thinner fabrics and the flat aluminum window (heavy duty) is designed for thicker less flexible materials like heavy canvas bags and portfolios. The window sizes are quickly and easily changed by hand I seconds with no tools required.
