AK-DUO cut and loop pile tufting gun

The AK-DUO is based on the AK-1 and has been improved to be easy to use even for beginners. It is a 2-in-1 cut and loop, so it is recommended for those who want to try out which one to use as the main part of their production before using the AK-1 and AK-2 dedicated cut/loop machines. (The AK-1 and AK-2 are superior in terms of expressiveness for both cut and loop.)

Features of AK-DUO

  1. Cut & Loop Changeable
  2. Easy to replace scissors
  3. Gear guard for safety
  4. Comfortable operability
  5. Easy maintenance
