A UK SME has developed what is believed to be the only European-made, long arm quilting machines answering to the increased enthusiasm for home quilting and needle crafts. The machines are powered by 240V AC servo motors to optimise power efficiency, and have a number of design features to increase accuracy and speed of production. Partners are sought for commercial agency agreement, as well as license agreements in order to develop international sales.
UK SME has developed a range of three long-arm quilting machines (two frame mounted and one table mounted) able to satisfy the needs of quilting enthusiasts and light industrial use. Manufactured in the UK, the design enables space saving whilst its solid base and adjustable table bring rigidity and support. The products use 240v Servo motors and are CE approved.
Further features found in the range include: Pigtail bobbins and flat head needles for higher accuracy, channel lock and pantograph stencils for increased design. A quilt advance motor has been fitted to maintain tension and enhance production. All machines in the range are operational from one side.
A patent has been filed in January 2015 with regard to operational enhancements and is awaiting approval.
So far a very limited number of sales have been achieved but there are, clearly, major potential sales opportunities across Europe and beyond. Therefore, agents with access to local arts and craft enthusiasts markets are sought along with textile equipment manufactures for commercial agency or license agreements.
