Pedestal with foot switch for table installation. The 2200 sewing head is fixed to a column (535 mm long) by a holder and the start and stop is controlled by a foot switch. This makes it possible to guide and close the bag with both hands, which makes sewing easier and guarantees a constant seam height. In addition, productivity is increased with high quality reproducibility. The pedestal can be firmly screwed to table tops or similar, while the foot switch can be positioned variably.
