At the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century, the industrial revolution began, injected new vitality into the manual shoe industry, shoe sewing machine were invented to aid and even replace labor. Beginning in the middle of the 19th century, in the wave of the industrial revolution, the invention of shoe-making machinery brought revolutionary changes to the industry.
From shoe sewing machines, sole sewing machines to Goodyear strip machines, to lasting machines, trim machines, nailing machines and so on, one shoe machine after another has been invented, perfected and applied, greatly improving the production efficiency of shoes, reducing costs.
In just half a century, the shoe industry has transitioned from "purely handcrafted" to "semi-manual" to "mechanized production". By the end of the 19th century, shoemaking had been electrified and fine management had been introduced. The shoemaking process is further refined and split, its beat of the assembly line is carefully designed. Basically, all the shoes come from the factory's large-scale production, each worker guarding a machine repeating the same action, announcing the arrival of the modern era. Our reviews also officially begin:
The reviews on shoe sewing machine is divided into 4 stages:
Phase 1: The development of sewing machines for shoe uppers, from which the uppers no longer need a worker using needle and a thread of sewing.
Phase 2: The development of the shoe-sole sewing machine (Blake) eliminates the need for hand-stitched soles.
Phase 3: the invention of the machine along the strip process (good special), more stable and fast sole fixing method.
Phase 4: the invention of the lasting machine, will completely solve all the time-consuming aspects of the shoe-making process.
