The start/stop tack is very common on machines with control panels, my old Juki at work has one and it's from the days they made brown machines.. I've seen some machines with electronic pedals, but I can't remember if this has one when I saw it at ISPO last year. If not, it's probably a button-press away.

Seeing things like this is mind-boggling to me.  Granted, in a lot of ways it makes far more sense for production than it does for R&D/one-off work, but the fact remains that I'm pretty sure this one machine is more high-tech than everything in my house, and my car, put together.

Does it have a secondary pedal for reverse?  In that first sew test he shows in the video Stone posted, as he completes the third speed stitching it backtacks/trims etc. all in one go.  I have seen machines that have add-on kits that use a solenoid to activate the reverse lever, but this seems all integrated.

The fact that it recognizes a broken thread that fast is also amazing.  My PR-1000E takes about 8 stitches to trigger the broken thread warning, no matter the speed it is set to.

But...like all high tech things, the maintenance and replacement parts/serviceability is like going from my grandpas '73 Buick to a brand new Mercedes with all the features.  DIY fixing is going to be a lot more complex than my 206RB-1, or even outright impossible.

For my one-man home shop?  Don't ever see a need for that expense unless my business model changes.  For the production sewing at work, especially with the variation in products that Eagle makes....definitely can see this being a game changer.

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:  78 / 26 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.

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
I had a mechanical Juki as my first bar tacker and after some mechanic work, it stitched good, but every cycle it jumped around like it wanted to self destruct. After some sage advice I upgraded to a used Juki 1900AH, the ability to change the stitch width and speed with a simple button push is amazing.
My guess is that you might be in the low $3,000. for a used machine, but the reality is that you will get most of your money back if you decide to sell it down the road, as they are very desirable to the right people.
Just my thoughts,

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?
