Should You Step Up To Industrial?

Are you checking out our world-class range of industrial sewing machines and thinking about moving up to one of them? If you believe you’ve outgrown your domestic sewing machine for one reason or another, and feel you’d be better off with an industrial sewing machine, there is a lot to consider. 

Let’s start by looking at the biggest advantages of industrial sewing machines in NZ. They’re designed and manufactured to operate at maximum efficiency and speed for longer periods of time. This is because they’re made for businesses and factories, where production time needs to be minimised and output maximised. This is achieved through extremely powerful motors and components capable of handling heavy-duty thread and heavyweight fabric such as upholstery material and leather. Stitch quality in an industrial machine is high but the numbers of different stitches and functions are limited to place less wear on the machine - this is key to their reliability. Due to their industrial use and the number of fabric fibres that go through them, these machines must be constantly cleaned and oiled. But, if you’re looking for a machine that can handle big jobs quickly, and is able to deal with a wide range of fabrics, industrial could well be the way to go.

On the other hand, even the most basic home sewing machines come with a wide range of stitch options and functions, and this versatility increases with premium machines. Stitch quality might not be as high as you’d get from an industrial model, but the better the machine the better the stitches. And domestic sewing machines are slower and less powerful than their industrial counterparts and this is something to keep in mind if you want to boost output and productivity e.g. you want to expand your home-based sewing business. 

If speed, reliability and output are your aims, then you should continue checking out our industrial sewing machines! Having said that, you may be better off upgrading to a high-end domestic machine. Many of our new generation home sewing machines are designed and built with superb levels of durability and performance while offering you all of the stitch and function versatility you associate with domestic machines. The best way to select the machine that is right for you is to contact us and tell us what you want from your sewing machine, and we’ll happily point you in the right direction.
