Machine needles for embroidery

For hundreds of years people have been decorating all kinds of materials with embroidery.

Originally done by hand, machines have now largely taken over the embroidery process. The manufacturing of laces can also be traced back hundreds of years. The development of large embroidery machines, like Schiffli machines, has also raised the demands made on embroidery needles. Needles from Groz-Beckert deliver immaculate results even at very high embroidery speeds and when using different materials and yarns.

Single and multi-head embroidery

One can decorate all kinds of fabrics by sewing thread in or on to it. These days it is usually done mechanically by computer-controlled machines. Embroidery machines are primarily used to embroider articles of clothing such as T-shirts, socks and caps. The fabric to be embroidered is first placed on an embroidery backing and then spanned into an embroidery frame.

Classification of embroidery machines

Embroidery machines generally fall into the flatbed or free-arm machine category. They are further classified into single and multi-head machines. Multihead machines are equipped with several embroidery heads, which simultaneously stitch identical motifs on several articles of clothing. Single-head embroidery machines have only one embroidery head. In flatbed embroidery machines the embroidery frames are on a large, non-adjustable table. They are mainly used to embroider pre-cut parts before they are assembled, and can be fitted with up to 50 embroidery heads.

Free-arm machines do not have more than twelve embroidery heads. They are usually used to embroider finished articles. You can learn more about single and multi-head embroidery in the here.

Needle system DB x K5

These needles work best in high functional reliability in embroidery machines. The needle system DB x K5 has been specially designed for use in embroidery machines. Using these needles reduces skipped stitches and thread breakage. You can also protect thread and material and ensure secure loop pick-up with these needles.

Thanks to its special geometry, the DB x K5 needle system displays higher resistance to deflection than other needle systems used in embroidery (for example DB x 1). It stands up better to the high demands made by embroidery machines. The larger eye of the DB x K5 needle delivers further benefits by protecting thread and material. Because of this you can expect less thread breakage and secure loop pick-up.

Special Embroidery Applications

Groz-Beckert needles can easily embroider hard-wearing products such baseball caps and leather thanks to its special features. The special characteristics of needle DB x K5 SAN® 1 GEBEDUR® provide many advantages over the standard version. You can expect increased needle stability, as well as reduced needle deflection and breakage from the reinforced blade. The larger eye simplifies threading and facilitates smoother sliding of the thread. The scarf chamfer and the optimized geometry between eye and scarf improve loop pick-up and reduce the occurrence of skipped stitches. The GEBEDUR® coating provides maximum protection from wear.
