3 Needle 5 Thread Cylinder Bed Interlock Stitch Machine VGS 2740

Exclusive model for hemming operation equipped with sewing parts. Comes with a top feeder. Unique layout of feed dogs creates flat and neat finish of edge of hem with relaxed and stretchable stitch formation.


  • Top-feed mechanism makes adjustment of height according to fabric easy. Always bring top ply of fabric closer to needle point at any feed amount.
  • Top feed dog eliminates sewing slippage, twisting and distortion of any kinds of fabric for beautiful finishes
  • Easier handling of fabrics – Position of needle bar driving link is higher by 17mm than conventional machines to keep more space at the left side of needle drop point
  • Oil leakage is prevented thanks to Yamato’s non-stain (PAT.P) technology, thus keeping garments clean
  • Instead of conventional thread control via tension resistance, Yamato’s Active Thread Control (PAT.P) takes in/draws back threads when it is required, thus stitching well-balanced semas with minimum necessary tension for thread regulation. No fuzzy thread adjustments.
  • Wide variety of seams including soft (suitable for microfibre), elastic, standard types. Easily and visibly adjustable.
  • Tunnel-free finish
  • Applicable for a wider variety of sewing conditions (tight, loose, etc.)
