What Are Industrial Sewing Machines?

Typically, an industrial sewing machine is intended for factory or commercial use and used by people who work in assembly lines on specific tasks with consistent material.

Unlike standard home sewing machines, industrial textile sewing machines are:

More Complex
More Varied in Size & Appearance
Higher in Price
Often Task Specific

An industrial sewing machine may not be versatile, but it is excellent at performing a specific sewing task, which can be specific to the material, fabric weight or a particular sewing requirement. For instance, you would use a different industrial sewing machine to sew a waistband on a pair of denim jeans than you would to sew a silk bra.

Sewing Machines with More Power!

Industrial sewing machines are designed to make money, running full tilt with the pedal-to-the-metal to crank out thousands of pieces a day.

Accordingly, industrial textile sewing machines have powerful motors, thicker shafts, stronger bearings, and beefier gears. Most sewing machines for industrial use have a ½ or ¾ horsepower motor, whereas your household sewing machine motor is not measured in horsepower but in amps (a unit of electric current).

Sewing Machine Feed Systems!

Industrial sewing machines also feed the fabric through the machine quite differently from the way a home sewing machine would.

Needle Feed

Some industrial machines will have a Needle Feed, which is used only in industrial sewing machines. The needle feed moves the material along while the needle is in the material. The advantage of the needle feed system is that multiple layers of material, especially slippery material, will not slide with respect to one another because the needle holds all the layers together while the feed action takes place.

Walking Foot Feed

A Walking Foot Feed replaces the regular presser foot with one that moves along with the feed dogs. As the walking foot moves, it moves the material along with it. This is most useful for sewing heavy material and for sewing multiple layers of material together.

Compound Feed

Compound Feed is a combination of needle feed and walking foot feed where the needle moves the material together with the walking foot. Compound feed industrial sewing machines are used mostly for projects such as auto upholstery, awnings and sales materials.

Regular or Drop Feed

Regular Feed, which is also known as drop feed is the most common feed system and one that incorporates a feed dog, which is a mechanical surface with teeth that helps to transport the material by dropping and then raising under the material.
