Vertical Comforter Quilting Machine

ABM Robo Quilter


Robo-Quilter Single Needle Quitling Machine

  • The world's first fully automatic vertical quilting machine.

  • The State of the art Robo Quilter uses only 1/6 of the floor space of a conventional panel quilter. 

  • Expect to save 80% of floor space.

  • Reduce labor cost by 75%.

  • Increase production by 25%.



Features & Benefits

  • The sewing head is a full computer controlled quilting system capable of sewing any pattern on your product.
  • A color touch screen user interface with an advanced computer processor allows for user friendly operation.
  • The automatic bobbin changer is complete with two quick-change carousels that hold up to 8 bobbins each. This enable the operator to run multiple machines with less down time wasted during bobbin changes.


Fully Automatic Comforter Loading

  • The Robo Quilter is highly automated and the most user-friendly machine available on the market today.
  • Designed with the operator’s ergonomic needs in mind, the operator simply attaches the leading edge of the quilt.
  • The product automatically indexes into the sewing position.
  • The product is measured, and the product gripper mechanisms adjust for seize changes automatically.
  • The grippers then automatically grip and stretch the product, preparing it for quilting.
  • Due to the machine’s extensive automation, depending upon the pattern, one operator can easily run multiple machines.


Sewhead Mechanics

  • Many different sewheads are available.
  • Sew speeds reach 4,500 SPM.
  • Gantry transport speed reaches 1,000 IPM.
  • Standard frame size 120” x 110.”


Completed comforter Load Sequence

  • After the product is indexed into the sewing position, the quilt cycle can begin.
  • The machine automatically backtacks at the start and finish of the pattern.
  • Many different patterns are available – from simple continuous to complex tack and jump.
  • When tack and jump is utilized, the Robo Quilter automatically backtacks and thread trims at every start and stop.
  • After the sewing cycle, the product is automatically indexed and folded in half so the operator can remove it effortlessly.


Automatic Bobbin Changer

  • Robo Quilter is the only machine available with a fully automatic bobbin changer.
  • The machine keeps track of the number of products that can be sewn per bobbin.
  • Every time a bobbin is fully utilized, the machine will automatically remove and discard the empty bobbin while inserting a new bobbin.
  • The changer holds up to 8 bobbins.
  • When the carousel is emptied, the operator can quickly and easily replace it with a full one.
