Sewing Machine Types Capable Of Industrial Use
by Kelsi Watts: Industrial sewing machines are specialized machines that are designed for high-volume, high-speed sewing of heavy-duty fabrics. They are typically larger and more powerful than regular sewing machines, and are built to withstand the rigors of continuous use in a factory setting.
Industrial sewing machines are used in the garment industry, as well as in other industries that require sewing, such as upholstery, leather goods, and canvas products.
Single needle sewing machines: These machines are used for sewing straight seams on a variety of fabrics, and are the most common type of industrial sewing machine. They are available in different sizes and styles, depending on the type of fabric and seam being sewn.
Double needle sewing machines: These machines are similar to single needle sewing machines, but they have two needles that can be used to sew parallel rows of stitches. This allows for the creation of decorative stitching, as well as for the sewing of hems and other types of double-stitched seams.
Overlock sewing machines: These machines are used for overcasting the raw edges of fabric to prevent fraying and to give the finished garment a neat, professional appearance. Overlock sewing machines can sew up to four threads at once, and are available in different styles for different types of fabrics.
Blindstitch sewing machines: These machines are used for making invisible hems on garments, as well as for sewing other types of hidden seams. Blindstitch sewing machines use a special blindstitch foot that holds the fabric in place, allowing the needle to sew a hidden seam on the underside of the fabric.
Overall, industrial sewing machines are specialized tools that are designed for high-volume, high-speed sewing of heavy-duty fabrics. They are an essential part of the garment industry, as well as other industries that require sewing.
