KE-430C
Dramatically improves productivity, product quality and ease of use
Increase productivity
The world’s fastest sewing speed of 2,700 rpm and a compact induction motor which is integrated with
the machine head both help to reduce overall cycle time and increase productivity.
Attractive and accurate seams
• Thread take-up device
A thread take-up device is equipped. After the thread is
trimmed, an upper thread trailing length with an extra
15 mm of length can be left, which is handy when
sewing light materials where normal trailing thread
lengths can often lead to the thread pulling out. (Thread
trailing lengths may vary depending on the type of
thread used.)
• Accurate home position detection
The home position sensor incorporates a non-optical proximity sensor, so the sensor is not subject to
operating errors from oil or dust, and cleaning oil and dust from the sensor are also unnecessary.
Attractive and accurate seams
• Highest-quality thread tightness
An improved thread take-up lever means that the thread take-up amount is optimum, allowing the highestquality thread tightness to be obtained regardless of the type of material.
• Prevent staining of the thread
The oil supplied to the rotary hook is kept clean at all times, which helps to prevent staining of the thread.
Superb ease of operation greatly increases working efficiency
• Enlargement and reduction ratios can be
entered in length
Enlargement and reduction of the sewing patterns
can be set at a touch using the operating panel.
The ratios can be entered either as a percentage or
in length(mm) (determined by DIP switch setting.)
• Smooth pedal operation
The foot switch needs only a light pedal pressure
to operate. This reduces the operator’s working
fatigue and gives better work efficiency.
• Abundant data storage capacity

Maximum No. of stitches are 20,000. Up to a
maximum of 16 user programs can be created,
each with its own sewing pattern, enlargement
ratio and sewing speed.
• Easy-to-use independent operating panel
• Cycle sewing
The operator can select whichever position is
easiest to use.
Up to 4 cycle sewing patterns can be programmed.
Max 15 patterns/cycle can be programmed.

Built-in Motor system
• Low noise and low vibration
Integration of the motor and the machine head and the
adoption of a timing belt make sewing machine operation
much quieter and reduce machine vibration.
• Easier maintenance
Periodic adjustment of the belt tension and adjustment of
the motor position are no longer necessary. The machine
head can also be tilted back to carry out adjustments without the need to remove the belt cover.
• Easier torque adjustment
The torque can be changed by replacing the machine pulley and the P-ROM. This makes it possible to
handle heavy materials and thick threads. (This is available by special order.)
• No contamination of the material
The adoption of a timing belt eliminates the problem of belt shavings soiling sewing products.
KE-430C Electronic lockstitch bar tacker
• In addition to standard bar tacking, straight bar tacking, vertical
bar tacking, vertical straight bar tacking and crescent bar tacking
which have been preprogrammed, bar tacking patterns of up to
30 x 26mm in size can be accommodated (by special order).

Sewing pattern
The sewing start and sewing end of the sewing patterns for program numbers
31 to 33 are in the middle of the pattern.
Make sure that the sewing pattern is within the dimensional limits of the work
clamp and feed plate.
If you want to sew a pattern other than standard patterns, you can create your
original pattern using the PS-3000. Consult with your local Brother Sales Office for
details.
