M-TYPE 868 CLASSIC – the left handed post bed machine with inbuilt sewing motor for perfect topstitching seams


The high rate of decorative stitching operations in the production of car seat covers, dashboard coverings and door panels as well as the fashion trend towards thick leather materials for upholstered furniture require optimally adapted and high-performance operating means.
The single needle and twin needle post bed machines of the M-TYPE series have been especially designed for these manifold fields of application and offer maximum flexibility owing to their wide spectrum of performance. The great variety of equipment makes it possible to use these machines for a multitude of applications on the sector of medium-heavy duty decorative stitching. The design typical for the M-TYPE and the ergonomically arranged operating elements guarantee maximum ease of use for topstitching operations on three-dimensional workpieces.

Another milestone of the M-TYPE platform is the innovative drive concept from Dürkopp Adler.
Machines with the sub-classification “M” are provided with a factory fitted integrated DC Direct Drive.
These power sources stand for maximum torque without gear reduction, impressive dynamics in the acceleration and braking phases during sewing, precise stop positioning of the needle even at high operating speed, highly energy efficient as well as a quiet and vibration free machine operation.
Another integral part of the drive concept is the in-house designed control unit.
The DAC CLASSIC (Dürkopp Adler Control) with the corresponding operation panel OP-1000 is tailored designed to the Direct Drive characteristics and in terms of functionality and user comfort, leaves little to be desired.
