The needle eye is particularly designed for metallic threads. The needle eye has a rectangle shape. This unique eye design facilitates easier passage of the metallic threads through the needle eye.
This is a special version of the 15x1 for embroidery and decorative stitching. A durable needle offers a long life span. It has an oversize eye to reduce stress of the thread and tension. It can also be used for metallic threads for heavier topstitching applications.
This needle has a long extended groove with a longer/deeper scarf, tapered blade, and a slim extra ballpoint.
This needle was developed for use in the new Babylock EMB6 & Brother PR-600/620 embroidery machines. It is an industrial quality embroider machine needle with a flat shank and reinforced blade, light ballpoint, and an oversized eye.
Designed primarily for commercial embroidery machines. DB-K5 has one a one size larger eye than regular needles. A larger needle eye allows the embroidery thread to easily pass through the needle’s eye without fraying or breaking.
- Flat Shank-This standard needle has a flat shank and a normal-sized eye for most home sewing machines.
- Ball Point (BP)- Ballpoint needles are designed to alleviate making holes in knot or loosely woven materials. The ballpoint needle pushes aside the fiber it encounters in penetration and thereby avoids making damaging holes in the fabric. (It is also recommended to use the thinnest possible needle for particular fabrics.)
- PD (Perfect Durability) - PD Needles have a titanium-nitride ceramic finish, which makes them more resistant to wear and tear. When embroidering large patterns or penetrating abrasive, dense or difficult materials, the needle point and surface will maintain its original shape and dimensions 3-5 times longer. Simply put, the use of PD needles give the operator extended needle life, fewer defects due to “dulled” needle points, and Increased productivity.
- CS (Cool Sew) Needles-The Cool Sew finish was created to alleviate needle problems resulting from the following situations: Heat buildup in penetration of synthetic, chemically treated, or very dense materials. Materials or residue sticking to the surface of the needle or eye. Excessive sewing thread breakage due to friction in the needle eye. The needle may get so hot as to actually melt or fuse the sewn material along the seam. The results can cause undesirable stitch appearances as these materials push through or pull up through needle holes.
