In garment manufacturing, overlock machine is one of the most used machines.
It is very important to take perfect care of the machine. While we discussed installing overlock machine previously, it is also important to discuss various precautions while manufacturing using this machine.
We manufacture customised clothing like custom t shirts, custom hoodies and various types of garments for various brands.
We would now start with the overlock machine precautions.
So as to avoid electric shock hazards, do not open the cover of the electrical box of the motor or touch any part the electrical box of the motor or touch any part inside the electrical box with the power to the machine turned ON.
To prevent possible personal injury, never operate the machine with the belt cover and the eye guard removed.
To protect against possible personal injury resulting from being caught in the motor, use a motor that is provided with a motor pulley cover.
To avoid electric shock hazards, never operate the machine with the ground wire for the power supply removed.
At Custombaba, we take care that all machines are properly installed to avoid any untoward incident with any operator.
During operation, be careful not to allow your or any other person’s head, hands or fingers to come close to the hand wheel, V belt and motor so as to prevent possible personal injury that may occur when your hands/fingers are caught in the machine. Also, do not place anything close to them.
So as to avoid possible injury to your hands and fingers, do not put any of them near the cloth cutting knife and the needle when turning the power to the machine or while the machine is in operation.

To prevent possible injury to your hands and fingers, do not put any of them inside the eye guard while the machine is in operation. Adhering to all content in this post of overlock precautions is very important.
To avoid electric shock hazards and accidents arising from damaged electrical components, be sure to turn OFF the power to the machine when you leave your overlock machine.
In the event of a power failure, be sure to turn OFF the power to the machine to protect against possible personal injury resulting from abrupt start of the machine.
So as to protect against possible personal injury resulting from abrupt start of the machine, remove the belt cover, motor pulley cover and the V belt after turning OFF the power to the machine so as to prevent an accident and confirm that the sewing machine will not run even when depressing the foot pedal of the sewing machine.
To protect against personal injury sitting from possible drop of the machine, do not carry your machine by holding the cloth plate cover by hand. Doing so may cause the cover to open or break resulting in drop hazards.
Be careful of handing this product so as not to pour water or oil, shock by dropping, and the like since this product is a precision instrument. As a garment or a t shirt manufacturer it is important to reduce breakage of machines to deliver orders in time.
I hope this post on overlock precautions is helpful to you.
