The core philosophy and foundation of ABM International and Team Innova® is unbeatable customer service. Our Houston, Texas based technical service department is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and we are eager and willing to take your calls. And if that is not enough we are the only quilting machine company to make house calls. Feel confident in owning an Innova from the longest standing most innovative forward thinking longarm company in the industry, ABM International.
Traditional hopping feet are rigidly mounted and do not adjust for varying thicknesses of quilt tops. The Innova spring loaded hopping foot automatically compensates for inconsistencies in your fiber fill or for extra heavy seam allowances which minimizes thread breaks and skipping. The Innova comes standard with a laser and mechanical stylus, as well as a fabulous adjustable fluorescent work lamp which allows for incomparable visibility of your work surface. The ABM Innova is very lightweight, well balanced, and includes Pro-Glider composite non-marking wheels for effortless and complete control of the sewhead reducing user fatigue and increasing design accuracy. Innova comes standard with a style "M" large capacity hook for fewer bobbin changes and includes extra needles, bobbins, a tool kit, dust cover, and stand alone bobbin winder with auto shut off and speed control.
The unique patented rotating sewhead allows the operator to twist the head out of the way for easy removal or for the addition of attachments such as our exclusive couching system, "Ecording Multitech".
All Innova machines are equipped with a 3000 stitch per minute one horse motor. This allows for faster more efficient quilting and better stitch regulation. The strong motor is capable of piercing multiple layer seam allowances without stalling, and coupled with the patented hopping foot, it easily accommodates the bulk found in the most difficult areas of your quilt.
The Innova® is offered with a full compliment of accessories including the “AutoPilot™ ” computerized robotic quilting system, “Lightning Stitch™” digital servo stitch regulator, and “Ecording™ “ automatic couching system. Because of ABM Internationals vast expertise and technical know how, we are able to bring you revolutionary technologies and cutting edge designs providing both a rewarding and unique experience.
The Innova is a well engineered quilting marvel and has been tested in the real world through stress and strain analysis to arrive at the most balanced smoothest running machine on Earth. Innova has the largest driveshaft’s of any longarm quilting machine on the market today, supported by sealed ball bearings eliminating the need for oiling or greasing the upper end of the machine keeping your quilts clean. Many of our competitors use bushings instead of ball bearings and they are in constant need of greasing and rebuilding. The only maintenance your Innova requires is general cleaning of thread lint buildup and regular lubricating of the hook race in the bobbin area of your machine!
Nearly a Century of quilting machine experience in the commercial industry gives ABM International the leading edge in manufacturing a longarm quilting machine that is proven to continually deliver. With class leading stitch quality, no down-time and extreme versatility, the Innova is sure to please. The ABM INNOVA longarm quilting machines are shipped with our standard stitch regulator. However, customers can order a machine without stitch regulation if desired. The stitch regulator, regulates the machine speed based on operator movement to control the stitches per inch, in and out of corners as well as in turns and tight radius's. It is fully programmable through the PLC operator interface. The number of stitches per inch are adjustable from 5-22. When in regulated mode, the machine will automatically accelerate and decelerate based on the quilting operator's movements.
