Ricoma’s KS-8700B high-speed flat-bed lockstitch sewing machine with a built-in direct-drive motor is ideal for sewing together light to medium garments like denim, cloth, knitted materials, and much more. The KS-8700B’s quiet and energy-efficient direct-drive motor can be used at any time of the day without bothering others and will save you money on electricity. And because the motor is inside the machine, you won’t have to manually install a motor and belt, reducing your set-up time. Along with its built-in motor, the KS-8700B’s rotary hook and advanced noise decreasing device also contribute to the machines’ quietness because it reduces vibrations, allowing for a smoother and quieter operation. Another fantastic feature of this machine is its high sewing speeds. With a top speed of 5,000 stitches per minute, you’ll finish projects quickly and faster than your competitors. When it comes to sewing, the KS-8700B has an adjustable stitch length between 1 mm to 5 mm, so you can switch between shorter and stronger seams to longer and looser seams, depending on the project and material. And its drop-feed mechanism and three rows of feed dogs allow you to feed fabric easily and evenly under the needle to control the stitch’s direction and length. Lastly, the KS-8700B’s automatic oiling system ensures the machine is always lubricated, ensuring that maintenance is always mess-free.
