Proven quality from Groz-Beckert for needles

– one of the most important parts of the sewing machine

A sewing machine without a needle is like a car without an engine. Because, without a needle, the sewing machine can not sew. They have an essential task in the sewing process: It penetrates the materials to be joined, guides the thread through and thus joins the item to be sewn together. Stitches are formed between the needle and looper and needle and spooled thread.
At ITMA Asia + CITME 2018, you can experience this special joining process live and see how the stitch formation works in detail. Our experts will advise you on the individual advantages available to you with the proven quality of Groz-Beckert sewing machine needles for lasting improvements in your sewing process.

Different types of stitch formation

Sewing is the joining of material by a seam. Seams can be created in different ways; i.e. with different types of stitch formation. The individual stitch types vary in the geometric arrangement of the threads and, according to 61400 or ISO 4916, are classified into six basic forms:

Class 100: Single-thread chain stitch
Class 200: Single-thread lockstitch
Class 300: Double-thread lockstitch
Class 400: Double-thread chain stitch
Class 500: Overlock stitch
Class 600: Cover stitch
