How To Change The Needle On My Brother’s Industrial Sewing Machine?

In all types of industrial sewing machines, the needle needs to be changed after a long period of sewing. We will show you how to change the needle on all types of sewing machines including Brother. Sewing with a crooked needle on an industrial sewing machine is particularly risky because it may break during use.

Place the needle’s flat side on a flat surface before using it to make sure the space between the two is uniform.

The needle is bent if the distance between it and the flat surface is irregular.

Use a straight needle only.

1. The handwheel should be turned counterclockwise toward you with the mark facing up to raise the needle.

2. Cut the sewing machine off.

Make sure to switch off the sewing machine before changing the needle; otherwise, you run the risk of hurting yourself if you accidentally hit the foot control or start/stop button and the machine begins to sew.

3. Presser foot lever: lower it.

4. Cover the needle plate’s hole with fabric or paper before replacing the needle to stop the needle from falling into the machine.

Avoid using excessive force when tightening or loosening the needle clamp screw to avoid harming specific machine components.

5. Using your left hand while still holding the needle, turn the needle clamp screw counterclockwise with a disc-shaped screwdriver to release the needle.

6. Avoid using excessive force when tightening or loosening the needle clamp screw to avoid harming specific machine components.

7. Insert the needle until it meets the stopper, the flat side of the needle facing the back of the machine.

8. With your left hand still holding the needle, tighten the needle clamp screw by rotating the screwdriver in a clockwise direction.

The needle may break or get damaged if it is not inserted all the way to the stopper and the needle clamp screw is not snugly tightened with the screwdriver.

You can easily change the needle on an industrial sewing machine by following the above rules. Also, for your convenience, I have presented a video below on how to change the needle on an industrial sewing machine.

How To Install A Sewing Machine Needle?

A sewing machine is a device that creates stitches on sewing material using one or more sewing threads, interlacing or sewing together one or more layers of sewing material. The sewing machine needle should be installed as follows: 1. Rotate the handwheel in the opposite direction to the clock to stop the needle in the highest position. (There is no need to turn the needle if it is already in the highest position.) 2. Using the right hand, loosen the needle clamp screw (turn the screw counterclockwise). 3….

What Is The Way To Identify The Right Needle To Get The Perfect Stitch?

Selecting the proper needle is vital to producing the ideal seam because it is one of the essential components of sewing with a sewing machine. On the other hand, if you use the improper needle, you could experience some difficulties like the needle or the thread breaking, the cloth wrinkling, or in the worst instance, the fabric being harmed.

Because of this, there is a wide variation of them even if they may appear to be almost identical to you. Knowing which one is recommended based on your demands is crucial for a decent sewing machine.

sewing needle parts

Understanding the components of the sewing needle is the first step in determining when to utilize each one. We go into more detail below:

Shank: The portion of the needle’s shank that is placed into the needle bar.

Flat Side & Round Side: Square Side & The round side is the component that is secured by a screw and inserted between the needle bar. There are two types: round or flat end (the latter is more typical in domestic appliances) (common in industrial machines).

Shaft: Between the Shank and the Groove, there is a point called the Shaft.

Groove: The section that is nailed into the fabric to create the stitch is called the groove. It is available in various diameters.

Eye: The eye is the hole through which the thread enters, and it is oval in shape to make it easier for the thread to pass through. Keep in mind that for proper threading, the thread should always be smaller than the eye.

Point: The needle’s point, which varies in sharpness depending on the type employed, permits the tissue to be pierced effectively while keeping it from ripping.

 A Sewing Machine Needle’s Thickness :

Numbers are used to categorizing machine needles, with the lowest numbers indicating the thinnest needles and the highest numbers the thickest. Additionally, there are two distinct numbering systems: American and European.

The most common needle numbers are 70/10, 80/12, 100/16, 110/18, and 120/20, with 70/10 corresponding to the European numbering scheme and 80/12 to the American one.

The thickness you choose will only rely on the fabric you select; always use the thinnest for the softest materials and the thickest for the hardest materials, like denim, as an example.

The point of the needles in a sewing machine :

The needle tip’s design lessens the force with which it penetrates the fabric, which stops tearing. The needles are recognized in this way:

• Round-point needles: They are characterized by a code and feature a cone-shaped point. The most common code is R, which stands for the standard round-point needle used for weaved textiles and the one you will use most frequently on everyday materials.

• Sharp point needles: They often have a more specific usage on an industrial level and are used to puncture non-woven and particularly dense materials.

Advice on selecting the proper needle

Now that you are more informed on the many kinds of needles, we’ll leave you with a few tips so you can make the best decision:

• The type of fabric, weight, and finishes must be taken into consideration while choosing the needle’s thickness and point.

• Use a needle that is as thick and as fine as necessary to prevent tearing of the cloth and harm to the textile.

• Consult your provider if you’re unsure which needle to use.

You are now prepared to use your sewing machine to create the desired seam!
