This versatile mattress border system enables you to easily adapt to changing market trends. A single sewing head and base machine is designed to accept affordable interchangeable components to add decorative border ribbon materials, border zippers, join varying materials or create Cinch-loc® ruffled mattress gussets.

Start with any of the following machines and add associated modular components as needed:
• PRM-1500 Automatic Ribbon Machine
• PJM-1500 Border Material Joiner
• PZM-1500 Automatic Zipper Machine
• PCL-1500 Cinch-loc Pillowtop Gusset machine

Addition interchangeable components can produce the following border features:
• Faux pillowtop production
• handle straps

Bedding industry trends can change rapidly. The BMS-1500 system is designed to allow you to start with a machine that constructs the border styles your customers currently need, and as needs change, you can bolt on different fixtures to produce new styles.
This can save you money since you won’t have to invest in an entirely new machine with every new change, and operator training is minimal as all the automated processes are based on the same core machine
