Pinpoint Saddle Stitching Machine
back to main JUKI page

This pinpoint stitch machine is used for topstitching on the front facing of men's wear, as well as front flies, pocket mouths and trouser sides, as a cost-effective topstitching machine that offers increased productivity. In addition, its applicable working range has been widened to include various materials and other processes, such as the topstitching of collars for shirts, blouses and knits.
The MP-200N has the newly added capability of sewing wider stitches and using thicker thread.
It can be used for a wider range of applications requiring narrower to wider stitch widths.

Excellent seam quality.
In addition to balloon-stitching (to produce seams with a hand-stitched touch), smooth sewing of chain-off stitches, and having other outstanding seam quality features of the highly regarded Columbia 100, the MP-200N achieves more improved sewing capabilities and a wider adjustment range.
The machine comes with a box type feed that permits a split adjustment in both horizontal and vertical directions, thereby responding to the sewing of various types of materials. Additionally, the inclination of the feed dog is also adjustable in accordance to the material.

Positioning of needles with increased accuracy.
Gauges that are determined by the combination of needles and spacers are of the Columbia type. This improves the accuracy of the installation of needle positions, which determines the seam quality.
Wider range of applicable needle gauges and yarn counts.
Needle gauges support, using replacement parts, stitch widths from as narrow as 1.2mm to as wide as 5.0mm.
The applicable range of yarn counts has been widened from #60 to #8 (B33, Nm = 120/3) for both Tetron and spun thread. This allows the machine to be used for topstitching a wider range of items.
* Refer to "Replaceable parts of gauges" for a correspondence between gauges and needle gauges.
