1) Heat Buildup in penetration of synthetic, chemically treated, or very dense materials
2) Materials or residue sticking to needle surface or in eye
3) Excessive sewing thread breakage due to friction in the needle eye
The COOL-SEW finish needle’s surfaces, even in the eye, are resistant to sticking. Its non-stick finish has a very low friction coefficient which prevents excessive heat buildup and its resulting problems. Few, if any, materials stick to the surfaces of Cool-Sew needles.
When COOL-SEW needles are used under conditions described above you can expect neater stitches, less sewing thread breakage, less puckered stitches, less downtime, less defects, and increased productivity.
COOL-SEW needles are ideal for sewing through vinyl, synthetics, chemically treated materials, glued materials, rubberized goods, nylon, foam, dense materials, and with synthetic threads.
Embroidery needles on this page are round shank needles
for commercial/industrial embroidery machines only.
This embroidery needle is designed especially for industrial /commercial embroidery machines such as Tajima, SWF, Barudan, etc. The DB-K5 needle has a one size larger eye than that found in a regular needle. Unlike sewing thread used for general apparel sewing, embroidery threads are "fluffier" and have less tensile strength. A larger needle eye, without increased blade diameter, allows the embroidery thread to pass easily through the needle's eye without fraying or snapping
Choosing the right needle is important to ensure quality stitches. Embroidering with a needle that
is too small or too big for the thread and/or fabric may result in thread breaks or skipped stitches.
There are three things to consider when choosing the right needle for the job: fi nish, size and point.
DBxK5 is an established standard system for machine embroidery. This style needle has a medium
point with a larger eye, which allows the thread to fl ow smoothly and helps reduce thread breaks. Its
only downfall is that it is slightly less durable due to its thinner eye wall. For stretch materials, use
ballpoints. For cottons, use sharp-points.
DBx7ST is ideal for metallic threads. It has an extremely large rectangular eye that allows for easy
passage of thread. You may also use size 80/12 needles for metallic threads.
