No issue, I love Juki. Was just hoping for some existing competition. This should hopefully kick Brother and the other sewing machine companies into high gear to come up with products with similar features, driving down costs, etc.

I would also love to have something like this in my workshop to build new product development samples because it could just make life easier.

My only concern would be servicing and maintaining this machine. All the new tech they add will break sooner or later. Hopefully Juki is training the dealers and independent mechanics in the US to service these machines and not just relying on the big factories to send their techs in for training.

Support innovation.  Support innovators.  It encourages innovators to innovate and bring useful things to the market.  While others wait for the price to drop one can reduce operator fatigue and increase quality and throughput immediately.  Skip that vacation or new car depreciation and let the new machinery pay for itself in a quarter or two and skip that new car or vacation.  The morale generated by providing employees a positive environment with the latest, efficient, ergonomic equipment is priceless.  Demonstrate to your merry band your level of appreciation:  78ļ / 26ļ environment, bonuses, and the best equipment money can buy.

Juki 22xx series with high lift offer the same effect.  Rather than adjusting the high lift knob on top, hit the knee switch for instantaneous, on the fly high lift/max alternating momentum.  It's a breeze to stitch over zippers and seams. The V's presser foot pressure is digitally controlled.  If it sensed an increased load (thicker area) it could respond by increasing alternating momentum when approaching and traversing seams.

On the 22xx Eco series, it's changed from a pneumatic switch (push on, release off) to an electronic switch (push on, push off) which is counter intuitive and sloppy.  Juki Miami assisted with reprogramming the 180 panel to make it push on, release off.  It's still not quite as quick as pneumatic but it's close enough.  I didn't notice a high lift knee switch on the Smart 2828.

Juki Miami has been helpful in assisting with issues via email and phone.  I can't imagine the V being much more complicated than a kit built R/C car or plane and not much more sophisticated than a smart phone.

WTF stock ACRONYM and SQUADRON laminate for cutting parts to your spec.  For contract cutting we charge cost + 10% for materials we stock.  10% pays for the the energy to get it here and store it in a climate controlled environment.

We can cut parts up to 54.75" 1390mm wide (limited by the 55" 1397mm width of laminate fabric) x 98" 2490mm long.

Email your CAD (dxf, cdr, or PDF please) to <quote AT wtfidea DOT com> for a fixed, per part price plus setup fee per color.  We accept CAD for individual parts and nested layouts.

NDAs may be submitted for inspection with a $250 counsel inspection fee.  The fee is credited to your first order.  Attorneys who actively practice IP and gear design ain't cheap.  It doesn't make financial sense for us to participate in an agreement that hinders our business.  We stock laminate to sell laser time: cut yardage rates and 5 yard rolls rate reflect this.

Is there another machine out there that has the  "Learning multi layer sensor" for being able to go from thick to thin and back to thick layers?

Is there a competitor to this machine at the moment from Brother or anyone else with similar features?

Not to my knowledge.  Is there an issue with this machine that would cause you to look elsewhere?

I want one because I'm lazy. For factories this can save a ton of time.

Srlsy.  And all those features will reduce the operator's workload allowing them to focus even more on good parts.

thanks W24 ,I am now looking at a brother B430-2 in 42 stitch ,I hope that will cut the mustard ,any vices on this machine? Davy

It's better than the S2 but it's still a cam machine.  Cam machines, compared to electronic, are maintenance nightmares.  The next generation of techs don't know them.

Have you tried emailing the usual suspects to see if they have a bargain electronic tacker?

http://www.juki.co.jp/industrial_e/download_e/catalog_e/lu2800v7.pdf

It's like the Homer car.  Skipped stitch detector.  Learning multi layer sensor.  Digital presser foot control.  Digital thread tension.  Knuckle buster jog wheel to augment handwheeling.  Integrated LED light.

Sewing conditions can be set easy since
sewing conditions such as thread tension,
stitch length, presser foot pressure, alternate
vertical movement amount, etc. are displayed
on one screen.

Nick of http://nickosew.com/ let us know that some LU-2828V-7s were available.

I hadn't heard of them.  Mother of God.  I couldn't imagine stitch quality better than what the 2828A-7 offers but Juki figured it out.  And they're WiFi enabled

New machinery should arrive early September.  Very exciting.  If you have questions, please ask.

And you can talk to it with a tablet (9000C shown)-

LU-2800V-7 Series

Semi-dry, direct-drive, Unison-feed, Lockstitch Sewing System (Digital Type)

The LU-2800V-7 Series are high-performance sewing machines that have been digitized for easier set-up and operation . It leaves a shorter thread on the material at the beginning of sewing by means of the needle thread clamp device, as well as at the end of sewing by means of the thread trimmer. Thanks to the adoption of a 2.7-fold hook (LU-2828V-7), the frequency of bobbin thread changing is reduced and work-ability is improved. Perfect parameters needed to achieve a high quality seams can be set digitally and key conditions do not need to be manually adjusted. Thanks to this digitalization, optimum adjustment values required to produce high-quality seams can be stored on a material-by-material basis in the machines internal memory and can be reproduced with ease.

I apologize in advance but it is much easier for me to simply link to my blog. https://tarsiertactical.wordpress.com/2018/08/06/180806-backpack-7-multicam/

Im slowly improving but corners, binding tape and just stitching straight are still extremely challenging. Welcom any comments, criticisms or suggestions...

Take one minute and forty five seconds to link the pics here.

If you like tinkering, get it.  If you like making money, maybe not.

Iíve  got some I can part with.
Iíll send you an invoice later today, Iím currently on the road.

And may I please amend my request to 20 yards (:
