One of the machine’s standout features is the RDS system's flexibility, which allows users to swiftly and efficiently create multiple fabric structures on the dial without the need to remove any cam box sections or elements. All adjustments on the RDS system can be easily made using the provided cam wrench tool from the exterior of the cam box.
