Schmetz increases range of embroidery needles

Aug '09
Needle manufacturer SCHMETZ has extended its range in the field of em-broidery. High quality embroidery processes require the use of special needle geome-tries. Conventional needle geometries often do not correspond to the re-quirements, for instance in the processing of sequins, with frequent needle size change or when heavy embroidery threads are used.

According to in-dustry-specific requirements, SCHMETZ has developed new geometries for the needle system DBxK5 for those applications in multi-head embroidery.

Focussing on user problems:
Bursting of sequins by penetration of the needle is one of the problems in the embroidery industry. Additionally, the needle might clash with the se-quin chain cutter, especially in the embroidery of very small sequins.

The Ferd. SCHMETZ GmbH from Herzogenrath (Germany), renowned manu-facturer of sewing machine needles, now has developed the new DBxK5 KK SERV 2 for the embroidery of very small sequins with a diameter down to 3 mm. These needles have a short shank combined with a shank flatten-ing in the shoulder and lower shank area.

As a result of the shank flatten-ing, the sequin chain cutter can be set very close to the needle without col-lision of knife and needle avoiding wear and harm to any of the involved parts. Due to the round cross-section above of the upper shank area the needle can be used in multi-head embroidery machines with needle set screw positioned left-hand or right-hand.

This way, the new needle type DBxK5 KK SERV 2 from SCHMETZ signifi-cantly contributes to a trouble-free embroidery process and a perfect end-product even when embroidering very small sequins.

Innovative needle geometry permits novel embroidery technique
Up to now, it was impossible to use very fine and very heavy embroidery thread at the same time in one embroidery head. The new SCHMETZ DBxK5 FHS (FHS = Fixed Hook Setting) now permits such innovative em-broidery techniques with extremely different yarn count and consequential use of different needle sizes within one embroidery head.

The characteristic of the new SCHMETZ DBxK5 FHS is that the distance from hook point to scarf and from needle guard to eye/point area remains the same for all needle sizes from NM 65/9 to NM 110/18. Therefore, no hook re-adjustment is necessary when changing the needle size within this range; one sole hook setting fits all needle sizes.

Without any problems, each needle bar within one head can be equipped with another needle size which allows the use of significantly different yarn counts within one em-broidery head.

The change from very fine to extremely coarse embroidery thread in each single head permits innovative embroidery techniques without time-consuming re-framing of the material and re-adjusting the hooks. This en-sures increased flexibility in the production process and less machine downtime.

Additionally, the operators are more autonomous in changing the needle and they work more efficiently.
