Features of an APQS Lucey Long Arm Quilting Machine
We use precise encoders tucked into our APQS Lucey wheels to give you the perfect stitch every time. Our stitch regulator isn’t a purely digital regulator, instead it relies on fuzzy logic to monitor not just your speed but also your direction. When you change directions you’ll get a point in your point… every time.
The APQS Lucey motor is calibrated to reach 3500 stitches per minute. While you likely won’t go that fast normally, having a high SPM ability gives your motor greater headroom to speed up and respond to you as you change directions. It is an indicator as to how responsive your stitch regulator will be.
The elevated roller means you never have to raise it as the bulk of the quilt grows. And the leveler bar in front on your APQS Lucey keeps your quilt surface level.
Manual horizontal channel lock will lock out the wheels so the APQS Lucey quilting machine can only be moved in one direction. This feature is the number one way to keep your quilt top square to the table so you end up with a square quilt!
Ergo handles (front and back, with finger touch button control): Change your grip depending on your quilting style while still being able to control the APQS Lucey long arm machine even when it is at the back of the table. The Lucey has a big throat, and these handles allow you to control the machine even when you are at the back of the table
Change out the APQS Lucey machine’s hopping foot to an open toe design! Your machine comes ready to accept different feet for the different kinds of quilting you do.
Bright, clear lighting increases accuracy. The built-in black light on the APQS Lucey lets you adjust the lighting with the flip of a switch
You get a choice of the size bobbin you prefer so your APQS Lucey machine is specifically made to your tastes and style of quilting. There is no difference in price; just tell me how you want it made at the factory!
Consistently wound bobbins are the foundation to good tension on an APQS Lucey. We build these industrial grade bobbin winders from scratch.
APQS Lucey quilting machines are precisely held in time through our belt drive technology. Enjoy tension and stitch integrity that will be the same for the life of your machine.
Having only one place to set tension means our APQS Lucey longarm machines can run a wide range of even the most finicky threads, opening up your creative options.
The amount of oil required to care for an APQS Lucey machine is a fraction of what other quilting machines need, making maintenance simple and easy.
APQS combines technology with sleek design to give you a beautiful machine with the horsepower you need. Our integrated electronics and motor are tucked away behind the clean lines of our APQS Lucey longarm quilting machines.
Different types of quilting require an increase in needle speed to match the complexity of the design. A touch of the button gives you the control you need without having to navigate a series of menus. The APQS Lucey long arm machine has the fastest needle speed in the industry at 0-3500 stitches per minute.
When you come to a halt, your APQS Lucey long arm machine will not stop partially in the fabric; it will either stop in the full-up or full-down position depending on your preference.
We want you to be as comfortable and as confident with your machine as possible! Your longarm education is just as important to us as the purchase of your machine. You’ll get a full, one day class to learn how to use your machine. Each machine also comes with a starter kit with needles, a pantograph, bobbins and some thread to get you started with your APQS Lucey long arm machine.
Quilt with your feet up and let the (quilting) feathers fly when you add a computer system to your APQS Lucey long arm quilting machine.
