BEAUTY AND BRAWN

The SewQuiet 6000SM brushless DC servo motor is a modern-day marvel of ingenuity and technology, crafted and designed to exceed your expectations. This is the only servo motor 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.

CALIBRATED CONTROL

The SewQuiet 6000SM represents the fourth generation of Reliable’s energy saving servo motor 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

Other Features


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.

"Installed Sew Quiet on Tacsew 226RB. Seems like unlimited power. I had to turn it down to about 25% to slow it down. It still had tons of torque" 600W vs 400W Clutch, No Belt.

Roots
Reliable has lived and breathed every aspect of sewing machines since Milton Kahn started the business more than 5 decades ago. Quality control, expert service and advice are just a few of the things that make Reliable the leading commercial sewing and garment care manufacturer in North America.

Sewing machines may not have changed much in the last 25 years, but the motors that drive them have changed dramatically. The Sewquiet 6000SM is a new generation of clutch free motors, with more torque, yet perfectly silent when sitting idle.

Changing a Clutch Motor to a Servo Motor by Sewing Machines Australia. A variable speed servo motor delivers power savings, silent operation and precise control for your sewing machine. Often older machines with a clutch motor can receive a new lease of life by installing a servo motor. This video is a step by step guide to removing an existing clutch motor and then installing a new servo motor.

Reliable produces the SewQuiet motors to the UL/CSA standard. So the biggest differences is the plastic housing on the Reliable is UL grade plastic. It won't burn if its caught on fire. The component and wiring quality are all the same UL/CSA standard. In Canada where the Reliable ships from, it's illegal to sell a non UL/CSA electrical component. The US government doesn't regulate this the same as Canada. The end result is the Reliable has a better made motor, but it costs more to make. They are not allowed to use an external on/off switch for the same reason, they don't use fire retardant plastic. To solve this Reliable put a UL certified switch in the front of the motor, so a housing is not needed. Their engineers also devised a step stitch function in their motor that allows for maximum speed control. This is a unique feature and is ideal in a setting where speed control is important.

Do I need a different pulley?
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.
