Tape Edge Machine
The tape edge operation is considered to be one of the most difficult jobs in a bedding plant. The operator needs to use the tape edge machine to sew the top quilted mattress panel to the side border using a binder, walking backwards as he does so.
In the course of a day, the tape edge machine operator will walk about a mile backwards. After one side is done, the operator flips the mattress and does the other side. A two-sided pillow top style mattress needs to be sewn twice on each side.
