The U-4008 Series Button Sewing Indexer attaches buttons at the
correct positions accurately, quickly, and automatically.
It can meet usersf various needs, such as attaching spare buttons
and manual feeding of different types of buttons.

TWO TYPES OF SEWING HEADS U-4008-LK comes with LK-1903BN/BR35 lockstitch sewing head (max. 2,700 rpm sewing speed) plus a high performance button feeder.
This low-noise, maintenance free sewing head enables high-quality button attaching, free from frayed thread.
U-4008-MB comes with MB-1800A/BR10 single thread, chain stitch sewing head (max. 1,800 rpm sewing speed), and a high performance button feeder.
This state-of-the-art computer-controlled direct-drive sewing head is non-lubricating while that eliminate s oil stains.
It has outstanding onboard functionalities such as minimizing the remaining length of thread after trimming is always kept at a minimum, and a thread- fray-prevention mechanism to prevent the finished seam s from loosening.
SIMPLY PUT FRONT PANELS ON THE TABLE Just put the front body panels on the table.
Operators do not need to pay strict attention to the left or right positioning.
This feature enables high productivity.
2 x photoelectric sensors (for GENT and LADY) detect the upper end of the front body panel, and the computer calculates the distance from the upper end and top button, button intervals, and of buttons precisely and automatically.
The feeder transports the materials for GENT from right to left and the materials for LADY from left to right.
Mater ials are piled up tidily on the stacker automatically.
Alternatively, you can place the material and set the position of the top button under the machine presser, and the machine starts button sewing immediately.
POSITIONING OF TOP BUTTON FROM THE UPPER EDGE With the conventional mechanism holding the front panelfs top and bottom edges with clamps, attaching a top button positioned very close to the top edge was impossible.
U-4008 detects the upper edge of the front panel using a photoelectric sensor and feeds it with a vacuum plate instead of clamps.
Consequently, it has the flexibility to change the position of the top button, which the predecessor models did not have.
This feature is especially suitable for the shirts for the Japanese market called the gCool-Bizh type.
VACUUM PLATE Its powerful vacuum plate can firmly hold fabrics even with wrinkles or naturally curved front edges due to stitches.
Thanks to the stepping motor, the vacuum plate moves with precision, achieving high accuracy of button positioning.
It feeds even heavier fabrics or finished products perfectly.
DUAL MODE STACKER The stacker mechanism on the left side of the machine piles up front body panels of both GENT and LADY. (GENT: top is on the left, LADY: top is on the right)
Thanks to its stacker turn-over shaft, materials are always piled up tidily.
Operators can instantly change the stacker mode (GENT and LADY) without complicated procedure.
LCD TOUCHSCREEN Various parameters are displayed on the LCD touchscreen, such as distance from top edge to the top button, button intervals, distance to the spare button, inclusion or exclusion of spare button, number of buttons, bobbin counter, stitch pattern #, and more, allowing users to adjust settings with easy operations.
Other parameters such as GENT and LADY, machine head on/off, vacuum on/off, stacker on/off etc. can be instantly selected.
Up to 20 of above-mentioned patterns can be stored.
A red alert screen is displayed when the bobbin thread reached zero.
Emergency stop and restart at thread breakage, activation of the maintenance mode etcc. everything is easy to understand.
POSITIONING OF BUTTONS FROM THE FRONT EDGE The margin between each button and front edge can be set precisely from 5 mm to 25 mm.
The positions of guiderulers (for GENT/for LADY) can be adjusted forword or backward instantly just by loosening thumb screws, referring to the scale on the tape measure.
ATTACHING SPARE BUTTONS Attaching a spare button is possible within 720 mm of the feeding area.
Users can instantly adjust parameters such as whether to include a spare button and the distance from the bottom button to the spare button.
MISFEEDING DETECTION In case of missing buttons due to the misfeeding of button feeder, the machine detects the problem and stops the operation.
Operators can feed a new button from the button feeder and restart the machine by pressing the foot pedal.
ADJUSTABLE BUTTON INTERVALS Up to 20 equal interval patterns can be stored.
In the case of unequal intervals, users can differentiate each interval as they like by inputting each distance one by one on the touchscreen.
The machine can store up to 20 patterns of unequal intervals as well.
THREAD BREAKAGE DETECTOR (T.B.D.) T.B.D. detects the thread breakage and stops the machine immediately.
Operator can step back or step forward before restarting, reducing wasted of time and extra work.
MANUAL BUTTON FEED FUNCTION This feature is convenient for cases in which one shirt contains several different types of buttons.
Users can feed buttons manually instead of using the button feeder, but still, the machine transports the material step by step based on the preprogrammed button interval and # of buttons.
METICULOUSLY DESIGNED FOR MAINTENANCE Various maintenance menus on the LCD touchscreen allow users to precisely and effectively perform necessary settings and adjustments, such as fine tuning button intervals and changing feed speed.
In situations of maintenance or periodic check of the sewing head, a part of the top cover of the table is detachable instantly, and users can tilt the sewing head hassle-free.
