Needles for Single and Multi head Embroidery Machines
Groz-Beckert Embroidery Needles
With todays machines in the field of single and multi-head embroidery there is no limit to creativity. This is also the reason why during the past years the variety of different embroidery materials has increased rapidly.

Especially three-dimensional embroidery, embroidery on leather and technical textiles with different layers of material and coatings, combined with high machine speeds, is in many cases an extreme challenge for the embroidery machine needle.

In design and precision Groz-Beckert embroidery machine needles have adopted the requirements of the market.




Market requirements are:
 
  • Embroidery appearance excellence
  • Optimum functional safety
  • Reduced needle breakage
  • Extended (trouble-free) needle life
  • Needle-hole damage prevention
  • Minimized thread breakage for
  • Reduced machine downtime and to achieve
  • Highest performance and production efficiency

 

 
     
 

 

The DB X K5 and its special features
Variations of the DB X K5

The Original Needle for Single- and Multi-head embroidery

The needle system DBxK5 was especially developed for the use in modern high performance machines.

During research and development the following points had to be considered:

  • Reduction of skipped stitches and thread breakage
  • Maximum protection of thread and material
  • Safe thread loop pick up
  • Best universal point style
  • Eliminate looping
  • Optimum stitch fill (no gaps)

Stability comparison of the standard DB X K5 and its variations
 
Groz-Beckert Embroidery Needles
 
Essentially the needle system DBxK5 has the highest stability. The bending resistance of the standard needle is higher than any of the other needle systems used in the embroidery industry.  

The SAN 1® GEBEDUR®, with its special design and a titanium nitride coating, offers highest stability and maximum resistance against wear.  

The blade design of the “KK” version corresponds to the standard DBxK5 needle. However, due to its shorter shank, bending resistance is lower.  
 
A = Bending resistance (N/°)
1 = DB x K5
2 = DB x K5 SAN®1 GEBEDUR®
3 = DBxK5KK
 


 
     
     
 

Standard point RG and point variants

In various application tests the RG-point proved to be the most suitable point across a variety of materials.

There fore the RG-point is the standard point style for Groz-Beckert embroidery needles.

The needle stability
 
The other needle systems here were not specifically designed and produced for embroidery. Their application related features are designed for the use in single needle lockstitch machines. Nevertheless, many embroidery factories still today use these needles.
 
 

 

Known application problems and possible solutions
On knitwear
Groz-Beckert Embroidery Needles
Material damage:
A needle point which is too sharp will create loop damage or needle cuts. A needle, which is too thick will push out the loop under tension and break it.
Groz-Beckert Embroidery Needles
A DBxK5 size 65 with RG-point was used on this fine knitwear, the result is a nice embroidery design without any damages.
To avoid material damage when embroidering knitted fabrics, it is recommended in most cases to use needles with a ballpoint.
On fine knitwear the standard point RG (also FFG) and on coarse knitwear the FG-point.
In addition, needle size has a big influence on material damages. It goes without saying; tests with the requested needle size should be done before starting production.
On woven fabric
Groz-Beckert Embroidery Needles
Irregular embroidery appearance:
Needle deflection caused by a needle which is too thin or a ballpoint which is too big results in an irregular embroidery design.  
Groz-Beckert Embroidery Needles
A DBxK5 75 with RG-point was used on this woven fabric, the result is an excellent embroidery design.

Whether on fine or heavy woven fabrics, if the ballpoint is too big or the used needle too thin, problems will occur during the embroidery operation. Irregular appearance of the embroidery design, thread breaks and also needle breakage can be the result.

High stability and at the same time maximum material protection are required! Features which the needle system DBxK5 offers in all sizes.  
On leather
Groz-Beckert Embroidery Needles
Irregular embroidery appearance:
When using a cutting point on embroidery, lengthways and across the grain, the cuts in the leather are different. In extreme cases, the design can be completely cut out from the leather.  
Groz-Beckert Embroidery Needles

A DBxK5 SAN® 1 GEBEDUR® with RG-point was used on this leather, the result is an attractive and consistently top quality embroidery design.

When embroidering onto leather, the needle point used has a significant influence on the appearance and the quality of the embroidery. Cutting points are not suitable for this application. The changes in the stitching direction will result in previously sewn threads being cut, excessive perforation of the leather and irregular stitch hole openings.
On fine and medium hard leather the RG- and R point are proven and on hard leather the R- or SD point are recommended.  
Penetration forces through leather are relatively high, so needles must offer highest stability. The DBxK5 and in particular the DBxK5 SAN® 1 GEBEDUR® meet this requirement.  
 
 
   
3-D Embroidery  
Groz Beckert Embroidery Needles

In order to achieve the 3-D-effect foam material is positioned on the embroidery base before being overstitched. The adhesion and the foam material leads to higher friction, not to mention the variety of thickness the needle has to contend with. In addition these embroidery designs often have to transverse panel seams in caps.


Therefore the many forces placed upon the needle (and embroidery threads) can and do vary in the extreme.

Highest demands are put on a needle in

Three - Dimensional Embroidery

 
   
 
 
   
     
 

For this sort of application the embroidery needles need to fulfil the following requirements:
Lower penetration force

 

  • Material protection
  • Raise (highest) stability
  • Eliminate skipped stitches
  • Reduced needle breakage
  • Precise embroidery fill
  • Clear design definition
  • Less thread breaks
  • High resistance against wear
  • Long lifetime
 
 
 
Besides Groz-Beckert’s standard DBxK5 needle, these demands are further reduced as problem areas by using the DBxK5 SAN® 1 GEBEDUR®.
 
Groz Beckert Embroidery Needles
 
After overstitching, the foam material is taken away from the embroidery. Any remaining parts of the foam material are removed carefully from the embroidered design.
 
Groz Beckert Embroidery Needles
 
Now the 3-D image is available. An acceptable result is only achieved with precise stitching. Thread is covering the foam material without gaps and no stitches looped. The material must not be damaged and the 3-D effect must be uniform.
