Industrial sewing machines can be a little intimidating, especially if you're just starting out and haven't spent years working on one. However, the simplicity and power of industrial sewing machines make them ideal for some projects or for certain tailors, even if you work outside of your home.
When you watch blockbuster shows that have tailors using industrial machines and whizzing through lines of stitching at incredible speeds, it can make industrial machines a little scary. Industrial sewing machines often have speed control options.
Like home machines, you can control the speed of the stitch or needle with a clutch pedal or servo motor. You can even make this one of the main factors you look for when buying an industrial sewing machine. It means you can get started even if you are somewhat new to sewing.
However, it takes some time to learn how to get a deep understanding of using the clutch or servo. It's always best to start slow and work your way up as you develop more comfort and confidence working at higher speeds.
One of the most sought after tools or skills that people look for in home machines is the bobbin winder. You can expect the same from industrial machines; however, the system can be a bit more complex. On most industrial sewing machines, you should have no problem winding a bobbin while sewing!
Always go through the instructions on the machine before attempting to wind a coil.
Work with heavy materials
Working with denim, outdoor furniture material or even leather? Many craftsmen enjoy using these materials. However, most household machines cannot handle the heavy use of these materials as they wear down the machine.
With an industrial sewing machine, you should be able to take any material and go straight to work without the worry of destroying your machine. The only thing to consider when working with heavy materials is that the foot is not universal. Always make sure to use the right foot and thread for the fabric. If you're dealing with tough materials, your problem is usually the accessories or materials, not the machine.
Have the seams professionally finished
With a home machine, you will have to use a zigzag stitch or go to great lengths to finish the stitches professionally. However, with an industrial sewing machine, you can use a machine overlock or triplock to prevent unraveling while maintaining a professional finish.
There are a wide variety of advantages to using an industrial sewing machine. If you're thinking of making the switch from a domestic machine to an industrial option, you might want to consider how you finish your stitches, thread bobbins, and work with different materials while maintaining control over speed.
