Industrial Walking Foot Machines

Industrial Walking Foot Machines are a staple of the canvas, denim, leather, upholstery, and vinyl sewing trades.

Of all the types of industrial sewing machine mechanisms in common use, one of the best systems for feeding multiple layers of dense, thick, or slippery material, including leather, is the “walking foot” mechanism. 

Walking Foot Machines are able to climb up over new layers of material, and climb down to lower levels, without hesitation or the need to manually raise the feet. Once properly adjusted for sufficient lift, the alternating foot action ensures that the inner or outer foot will grab the top of the new layer and the entire set then walks over it.
