The Advantage of the 71-1D-2
The 71-1D-2 is a NEW, single needle, one-thread, double row feed butt-seamer that runs on Merrow's barrel cam architecture. It joins DRY, light to medium weight KNIT fabric at HIGH SPEED. With minimal part upgrades, the 71-1D-2 can easily be converted to sew with two threads.
WHY it's better
The combination of high speed sewing and a narrower butted seam makes the 71-1D-2 ideal for seaming lightweight knits. It sews a flat and strong stitch that is similar to the traditional Merrow butt seam, but at 3/8" is tighter and more compact, creating a secure joint on lightweight fabric. The 71-Class stitch still maintains a flat profile however, and will not interfere with subsequent finishing processes.
HOW it's better
The 71-1D-2 is a hybrid of Merrow's MG-Class and 70-Class machines. While the 71-Class sews with the precision and speed of our MG overlock models, it does not recirculate oil and prevents the internal buildup of particulates that plagues self-oiling machines. All 71-Class models have specially milled cam grooves that allow consistent, uninterrupted sewing at up to 4000 rpm.
WHERE it's used
The 71-1D-2 is engineered for dry industrial environments where fast seaming of knit fabric is required. Because it does not recirculate oil it offers a distinct advantage over converted overlock machines, and like all Merrows it is designed to run continuously without interruption due to machine or stitch failure.

Merrow Machine Advantages
Since 1838 Merrow has manufactured the world's best overlock sewing machines. A Merrow Machine is built to sew a more precise stitch and operate longer than any other competitive sewing machine in its class.
Merrow Machines are engineered and manufactured more carefully, designed to last decades, and supported with a network of 156 agents in 65 countries. The Merrow Sewing Machine is The Most PRECISE and TOUGHEST sewing machine manufactured in the world
Overlock stitching was invented by the Merrow Machine Company in 1881. Merrow's original three-thread overedge sewing machine is the forerunner of contemporary overlocking machines. Over time, the Merrow Machine Company pioneered the design of new machines to create a variety of overlock stitches, such as two, and four-thread sergers, the one-thread butted seam, and the cutterless emblem edger. Today Two- and three-thread formations are also known as "merrowing".
In 2010 Merrow Machines are engineered and built in Fall River, MA.
Quality of Materials
Our parts and machines are handcrafted and handbuilt
Cams NOT pistons -- Proprietary Cam Technology - Different from all other Sewing Machines
We're the only manufacturer in the world building Cam-driven sewing machines that stand up to heavy use. Merrow's Cam-driven machines produces a superior quality stitch. Using sophisticated 5-axis computerized milling machines, we've succeeded in developing proprietary high-technology components offering faster, quieter, operation and remarkable durability.
Merrow Cams are Machined to Exacting Dimensions
Tolerances are held to .001: the tightest in the industry. They have been designed to operate continuously between 2200 and 5500 RPM. Merrow Cams allow a Merrow Machine to create a perfect stitch while ensuring that the sewing machine will last a lifetime.
Special consideration should be paid to the intricacies of Merrow's Cam Technology:
- The Cam groove width and the final surface finish of the Cam groove are created with proprietary manufacturing technology that allows all sides of Merrow's Cam to have an equal, highly polished and uniform steel surface, this results in an approximate coefficient of friction, when lubricated, of .06 or lower.
- Cam gear teeth are cut to a unique specifications with the sides of each tooth shaved to create a proprietary profile. This reduces heat when running.
- Hardness and metallurgy of the Cams are continuously modified, improving the durability of the Cam. The Benchmark for the durability of a Merrow Cam in continuous operation is more than 30 years of operation without failure.
VERSATILITY (for CONTINUOUS PROCESSING):
Sew thousands of different Material Types
Woven Fabric, Knit Fabric, Terry Towel, Denim, Technical Textiles AND Nonwovens. While the machines sew exceptionally on mid-weight woven fabrics, it performs well on a huge number of materials from vulcanized rubber to fiberglass to insulation.
the 5/8" stitch width
After years of testing we've determined that a 5/8" stitch is the most effective for joining materials at speed. Wider than the average sewing machine stitch by about double,the 70/72 Class stitch matches a substantial width with high speed sewing. The result is a fast process that is exceptionally versatile.
With more than 75 different needle plates and feed dogs, we can modify that 5/8" sitch to accomodate more demanding fabrics
Better than Glueing or Tacking
The 5/8" stitch is removable (unless you want to use the LS model), simple and inexpensive to apply
