The operator unrolls the sewn awning onto the air table, clamps it into position, and activates the cutting cycle to cut off the valance strip. The sewn panel is then re-clamped, and the sewing cycle is started to sew the welt. Welt bead can be sewn into the seam or inserted later as required, with automatic back tack at the start and end of seam. At end of seam, the machine trims the thread, advances a small distance, and trims the welt beading. The sewn panel is then rotated on the air table, and operation repeated for the opposite side.
