AirThread 2000D: Award Winning Machine
Janome’s AirThread 2000D was a winner of this year’s iF DESIGN AWARD, a world-renowned design prize. The AirThread 2000D won for its Design Excellence, competing against over 6,000 other entries.
Good Design Award commends designs recognized as excellent designs that improve the quality of life, industry, and society among all screened items. The AT2000D won for solving the troublesome task of threading the needle by adopting a looper threading mechanism with an original air delivery method.
8-Piece Feed Dog System
With strategically placed feed dogs in eight locations, the AT2000D will easily grab and feed your fabric. From slinky knits to denim, the AT2000D will meet the challenges of your sewing projects.
Built-in One-step Converter
Changing from a 3-thread to a 2-thread application has never been easier! Simply place your finger under the converter and flip it into position. Now, you’re ready to sew delicate rolled hems or reduce the bulk in your overlock edge.
Built-in Needle Threader
A Janome first! With a built-in needle threader, manually threading your serger needles is a thing of the past. One unit provides easy threading of both the right and left position needles.
There are three micro-switches for added safety to the sewist. The AirThread 2000D will only be able to serge if all three switches (located in the side cover, looper cover and the Presser foot bar) are engaged.
Integrated Adjustable Dials
The Stitch Length Adjustment and Differential Feed Adjustment have been integrated into 1 dual function dial. Easily grip the textured dials to change your stitch length any time (even while sewing) to get stitches between 1.0-5.0mm. The unique differential feed device prevents fabrics from puckering, lets you adjust the stretchiness of our stitching as you sew, and enables you add ready-to-wear effects to your sewing. Adjustable from 0.5-2.0mm.
Easily make adjustments to cutting width, access the upper knife release knob and switch to rolled hemming in one easy slide of the stitch finger lever. All of these adjustments are now located on the right side of the sewing bed for ease of operation.
Speed, Strength, Stability
The main shaft is newly redesign in the AirThread 2000D. Two ball bearings provide low torque, giving you greater stability at higher serging speeds and the benefit of added durability.
Serge through bigger projects with the wide flat work space. The AirThread 2000D offers ample sewing area with a sewing bed of 4.65” wide in front of the serging needle and 5.59” wide behind the needle. The bed is 9.67” deep as well.
Easy Lay-in Threading
With improved slide-and-go thread guides, quickly and easily lay the thread in place. The slide-and-go thread guides take the guess work out of threading the upper tension discs – preventing errors in threading the machine correctly
4 THREAD OVERLOCK SAFETY STITCH
The stitch employs both needles and stretches without breaking. It is excellent for sewing knit & loose fitting woven garments
3 THREAD OVERLOCK STANDARD
Popular for garment construction on medium to heavyweight fabric. Generally used as an edge finish on single layers of fabric.
3 THREAD OVERLOCK NARROW
Commonly used for garment construction and lingerie with light to medium weight fabrics.
2 THREAD OVERCAST
The needle and lower looper threads form an edge finish that is lightweight and flat. Often used as an open seam edge on lightweight fabrics.
3 THREAD ROLLED HEM
Excellent for hemming on medium to lightweight single layer fabrics, on scarves, napkins and ruffles. It can also be used to create decorative pintucks
2 THREAD ROLLED HEM
Since there are only 2 threads, the result is lighter and finer than the 3 thread version. This is suitable for fabrics like chiffon and also used for bridal veil edging.
Hem finish with a slightly scalloped appearance, used to hem sheers and lightweight delicate fabrics. Works well on chiffon, georgette and fine knits.
LETTUCE LEAF EDGE
3 thread rolled hem using the differential feed. A popular decorative wavy edging on stretch fabric. Can be used for more dramatic curves if used with a nylon cord. The differential feed controls the speed of fabric which can be used to either create more wave or to ease stretch and puckers
FLATLOCK 3 & 2 THREAD
3 thread is perfect for joining fleece and knit fabrics. Can also be used as a decorative accent with heavier threads to resemble the top cover stitch seen on sportswear. 2 thread is ideal for joining lace to silk on lingerie. The reverse side looks like a ladder stitch.
