The SewQuiet 6000SM brushless DC servomotor is a modern-day marvel of ingenuity and technology, crafted and designed to exceed your expectations. This is the only servomotor to incorporate a full 12-coil (vs. 6 or 9) design. This provides unparalleled power and torque, the kind of torque that’s needed to work with the toughest materials. And for those looking to add a synchronizer to your motor, it’s now available as a low cost stand-alone option.
The SewQuiet 6000SM represents the fourth generation of Reliable’s energy saving servomotor innovation. Precision step-by step stitching for detailed sewing, the ability to plug in a grounded light directly to the rear of the motor, UL/CSA certified electrical components and the total silence that gives the SewQuiet its name… the new 6000SM takes everything we’ve learned about motors over the past 60 years to new heights.

"Step Stitch will give you the stitch by stitch speed control you need. The servo motor variable speed is affected by the torque of the machine mechanics and materials being sewn more than just the torque of the motor. Some machines will have better variable speed control than others depending on the torque of the machine (how easy it is to turn the hand wheel over materials being used). The speed control dial is digital, and cannot be preset to exact stitches per minute, only RPM because of the differences in machines and materials." John Douthat, Owner and Tech
You can set the speed on these motors from 100 rpm up to 3800 rpm in 100 rpm increments.
*Exclusive Electronic Controlled "Step Stitch" Function allows for one stitch at a time sewing by leather workers or anyone who needs stitch by stitch control for small items and turning corners.
More torque at 600W than conventional clutch or servomotors at 400-550W, replacement, for existing clutch motors with no speed control, or undependable dc motors, Up to 75% energy savings!
NO CLUTCH, NO BRUSHES, NO PROBLEM: The SewQuiet 6000SM brushless DC servomotor is designed to operate all light to heavy-duty industrial sewing machines.
The brushless DC servomotor design which has very good torque even at low speeds; uses a laser sensor instead of a traditional mechanical clutch. This design gives the operator a graded acceleration compared to the abrupt type of acceleration common with a clutch motor.
QUIET AND CONTROLLED: With the SewQuiet 6000SM, the noise that is normally associated with sewing motors (clutch and servo) is almost entirely eliminated, creating a more pleasant work environment.
Whether you are an advanced sewer or a beginner, the SewQuiet 6000SM's microprocessor controller gives the user an unparalleled connection to the sewing machine, allowing for speed or detailed work. A "stepping" speed can be achieved which allows for literally, a step by step control of the sewing speed. This makes sewing detailed work much easier.
From the utmost in speed control technology and the ability to reduce costs with improved energy usage, to the 'oh, sew quiet' work environment, choosing the Reliable SewQuiet 6000SM is simply the smarter choice.
Everything you need to get your Sewquiet up and running is supplied in the box.

SewQuiet 6000SM Servomotor. From the utmost in speed control technology and the ability to reduce costs with improved energy usage, to the 'oh, sew quiet' work environment, choosing the Reliable SewQuiet 6000SM is simply the smarter choice. 12-coil technology means more torque and variable speed control will suit all operator levels.
The optional 50 mm pulley is no longer required with the SewQuiet SQ5000 and 6000SM motors. The Reliable SewQuiet 6000SM motor does come with a 60mm pulley and will work with the customer's existing table, however they might need a new belt that is longer than their existing one and the length will vary based on their type of sewing head. First try adjusting the belt that came with your existing set up, since you can change the height of the new servo motor to adjust belt tension.
Just what I needed for my Pfaff 545 h4 just a beginner Thank you Levo

Excellent Customer service - phones were down so I emailed and got a quick response. Can't beat the prices. All brands goes above and beyond to help you with any issue. They will definitely be my 'go to' for my industrial sewing machine needs. Love the Servo motor, it has taken my industrial sewing up several notches, giving me the control I couldn't always get with my old clutch motor. The servo is quiet and energy efficient too. Thanks!!
The motor is installed, proper belt on - sorry I didn't invest in the Servo years ago! I love the control it gives me! Thank you all so much!!

I have struggled with the speed on several different machines. Tried the smaller pulleys. Like most occasional users, by the time the project (car interior) is completed my skills catchup to the machine. This time I read a blog on the new 6000SM motor and did not hesitate, I ordered it the same night. It arrive 2 days ago, its like I have a new machine (Seiko STH-8BLD-3). Sewing will be fun again. I set the speed at 1200 and that is perfect for my needs. It will start stitch by stitch through 4 layers of vinyl, plus the upholstery board. I am a happy man! (and its quite) If you are not happy with your machine, This is money well spent! Your sewing stress will go way down!

Awesome product!! I use this on my Juki 1181. Works great, have had it for a year now, got my servo motor with the positioner ( gives the ability to leave the machine in up or down position, extra attachment added to machine) have not tried that yet. I was so happy with my motor. Allbrands and Reliable answered all my questions before purchase and made. The motor is very quiet and it is relaxing while I am sewing. There are no sudden jerks with this motor. It stops when you stop, it starts out slow and smooth. My favorite part is the step by step stitching, gives me great accuracy while sewing on my leather work, as well as heavy upholstery and regular canvas products. The motor is great, even with my Juki, I can even sew on cotton fabrics. I would highly recommend this product. For me it has been an overall great experience.

John, I want to thank you for your recommendations. I am currently using the SewQuiet Servo Motor and it is devine! I am going to get another one for my lock stitch machine (when the budget permits). I love the service that you provide. Your company embodies the real meaning of customer service. Sincerely, Lisa P
I wanted to express my 100% satisfaction with a purchase. Reliable sew quiet 5000 motor. I've never been more satisfied with your quick service and for providing an exceptional product to me. Thank You very much.
Good service. Thanks
Dean J, Nanaimo BC
Dear Reliable Corp. Staff, We have tried your technology for a few days now and our dressmakers love the new SewQuiet 5000 motor/controllers. They replaced our old original 10A electric clutch motors used in our industrial machines. Our first noticeable difference was the very quiet operation - WOW - what an improvement there! I shall be monitoring our electric bill to see if there is an improvement area too. I am looking forward to a pleasant surprise. The speed variability is also a nice touch so that our more junior staff will not be quite so intimidated by industrial machines. They can increase speed as proficiency is gained! So far, we love them! Thank You, Dean I. J
Ray M, Lansing MI
John, Thanks for helping me out. I called and talked to Nathan at Reliable. I suspected a loose wire inside the unit and let him know I am an electrician. He said it would be fine if I popped it open and checked it out. Just as I thought, a loose connection, the quick connect terminal block supplying 120v to the board had come off. I just plugged it back in (Its in the upper left hand corner). Now it appears to be all good again. Saved everyone time and money. My second sew quiet 5000 arrived in the mail today also. It was very nice to call and talk an actual person at your company today. Thanks and have a great day. Ray
I received my sewquiet SQ5000 yesterday and within 1 hour I had it installed and wired up with a switch that turns on my light and motor at the same time. The only problem I had was finding a longer V belt. After about 20 minutes of rummaging around in Pep Boys, I found the correct length belt. The motor is FANTASTIC, I can sew at extremly slow speeds which is great when rounding corners or when you just need to sew slowly. My old clutch motor would start slow then abruptly speed up. I have a great deal of control with this setup and it makes using my old Consew sewing machine a real pleasure
Donna R, Middleville MI
Shouldn't be sold without the 50mm pulley because it still wouldn't run properly on my Consew. Had to order pulley to fit from Canada lots of cash to ship. Now it works GREAT. Almost useless without the smaller pulley. Donna R

I just installed a sew quiet motor on a Tacsew 226rb and it seemed like it had unlimited power. I had to turn it down to about 25% to slow it down. It still had tons of torque at only 25% speed. Seth
Willie E., Frederick OK
I used a consew servo motor prior to this one and the consew servo motor can not even come close to this one, very pleased. Willie E.
Great product-not sure how I have managed without a sevo motor on my machines. Thx

Yes, our Sewquiet 4000 would be the perfect choice for this model. In fact, as you know we have our own version of the DNU-1541 (MSK-1541S) and it is a very popular choice here. We always pair it up with the Sewquiet 4000. You can get very good control with this motor, particularly at slow speed which is what the customer is looking for. The motor will give a stitch or two when the motor is turned off, but only if the pedal (treadle) is pressed. I would also suggest our #50 pulley to give the customer extra control, as she has indicated this is more important than speed. The motor will install just like their current motor. There is no plug-in for a light. The light would need to go into a wall outlet.

Extremely happy with the Servo!

Have you noticed that most servomotors on the market look alike? It’s not terribly surprising that they pretty much all perform alike as well With the introduction of the new Sewquiet™ 4000 by Reliable Corporation the servomotor market will never be the same again. The Sewquiet™ 4000 is the 1st DC servomotor with true quiet performance. No more buzzing sound at low speed, no more loss of power. The secret is our new PC board that is the heart and soul of the 4000. Once you’ve tried the Sewquiet™ 40000, you’ll find it very hard to go back to your old clutch or servomotor again. Yes it costs more than regular servomotors. But for only a few dollars extra, you can offer your customers true servomotor performance. Plus, we have designed and are producing the Sewquiet™ 4000 with UL/CSA approved components. The best part about our new Sewquiet™ 4000 servomotors… they are included on all of our industrial Reliable™ sewing machines, at no additional charge.

Your email is pretty impressive customer service. I'm not upset about the long wait. The price was the best on the Internet anywhere. Thanks, Duane

For upholstery and leather customers, you should stock and promote the 50mm pulley as an accessory for the Reliable 3000 motor. The small pulley is the ticket to real control and punching power. The combination of the 3000 motor and the small pulley is unique. Even with the small pulley, the 3000 can run as fast as anyone in their right mind would want to go on heavy stuff.
