MR needle – for automated sewing processes with multidirectional function
In the sewing industry, increasing use is being made of automated sewing systems which place stringent demands on the sewing needle. Particularly when changing the sewing direction, when the thread is pulled out of the needle eye in different directions, changes of the thread twist can lead to an unstable loop. Standard needles reach the limit of their capability here, which results in sewing problems such as needle breakage, untidy seams (skipped stitches, thread breakage) and material damage. The Groz-Beckert MR needle is capable of dealing with these demands and so provides increased process reliability.
Since 1980, precision needles made by Groz-Beckert have been plunging into every material and every knitted and woven fabric used in the sewing industry. With its concentrated know-how and inestimable wealth of experience in the development and production of precision components for the textile industry, Groz-Beckert also sets milestones in quality and solutions for this important textile sector.
- The special blade and scarf geometry gives the needle extreme bending resistance (deflection resistance), and consequently outstanding stability.
- The very deep and long scarf allows to position the hook or looper extremely close to the needle, providing optimum protection for the sewing thread.
- The special, asymmetrically shaped thread sliding area inside the eye of the needle ensures stable loop formation (also when changing the seam direction) and so avoids negative loop formation and thread twist.
- The special thread guiding area reduces the risk of thread unwinding.
Today, Groz-Beckert produces countless needle variants for its partners in the sewing industry. They are used for applications in industry, households and trade – all over the world.
