Cut Pile NK01 Tufting Gun: Everything you need to know about your tufting gun
In this article you will get a general overview over our NK 01 Cut Pile Tufting Gun. All the important parts will be explained, we show you the standard measurements you want to have on your gun and much more.
First and most important, whenever you are making adjustments on you tufting gun, always unplug it!
Let’s get an overview over all the parts.
- Main switch
- Speed regulator
- Main gear
- Position sensor
- Yarn feeder
- Pile height adjustment screw
- Lower bearing
- Top bearing
- Scissor adjustment screw
1 Main switch
This is where you the machine on and off.
A tutorial on how to replace these will be added soon.
2 Speed regulator
With this knob you can go from slowest to highest speed. The faster you set it the faster you need to tuft and therefore move your machine.
We recommend on starting slow.
With the trigger you actually start tufting. It’s a simple on-off-trigger. Pressing it harder is not regulating speed. The speed has to be set with the speed regulator knob.
4 Main gear
The main gear is the connection between the motor of the gun and all the bearing parts connected to the needle.
Make sure you feed your yarn properly so it won’t get stuck in the gear.
A troubleshooting tutorial for this will be coming soon.
5 Position sensor
This sensor is checking where your needle is positioned and sends a signal to the motor to keep the tufting rythm going.
6 Yarn feeder
Always guide your yarn through this little loop before threading it through your needle. This helps with keeping the yarn away from all the moving parts.
With the needle you poke through your tufting cloth after threading it with your yarn.
The scissor is cutting the yarn at the end of the loop and therefore makes this tufting gun a cut pile machine.
The pusher is setting the pile height together with the scissor. It’s pushing the tufting cloth away from the foot and helps moving the machine forward.
The foot is the surface of the tufting gun you push against the tufting cloth. Together with the correctly positioned needle it’s also responsible for creating an even weave.
11 Pile height adjustment screw
With the help of this screw you are able to set your tufting gun to different pile heights.
12 Lower Bearing
This part is connecting scissor (8) and pusher (9) with the gear.
13 Top Bearing
This part is connecting the needle to the motor parts.
14 Scissor adjustment screw.
With this screw you set the timing for the closing of the scissors.
Top bearing: 60 mm (this must never be changed otherwise the position from needle to foot will be off!)
Foot: should be aligned with the hole of the needle as shown in the picture.
