Electronic bartacker RTC-KE430

Electronic automatic bartacker with direct drive type Brother RTC-KE430 for sewing the bartacks on previously cut lifttapes.


This electronic bartacking machine is for sewing the bartacks to the cut lifttapes. It can be used as a stand-alone machine or directly next to the cutting machine to ensure a continuous and smooth production flow.

With the sewing template for 6, 8 and 10 mm wide lifttapes incl. base plate, the tapes can be sewn easily, safely and quickly. Changing the sewing template takes only a few seconds with the optional quick-change system.

If the lifttape cutter and automatic bartacker are combined at one workstation, a touch panel with integrated PC can be connected to the cutting machine as an expandable option. With this PC, different jobs can be stored or read in and quickly retrieved. This increases productivity and efficiency.
