Schmetz – the right needles for any kind of points, seams and materials
„It depends on what do you want“, explains Edgard Herbiet. “For a straight seam you need a needle with another geometry than for a 3D decoration seam.” Needles for leather are not like needles for lighter fabrics. And a special industrial application fields need needles with a specific coating. These coatings result in different benefits. There is, for example, the anti-adhesive coating for a excellent sliding properties. Another coating with titanium nitride offers a long service life and reliable seams.
For the very first time, Schmetz presented spare parts for sewing machines. “It seems to be quite a success”, says Herbiet. “Customers ask for prices and order our new products. They trust in Schmetz, because Schmetz is known for high quality. Shanker. J, General Manager Asia, summarises: “You often have to replace knifes to clean and sharpen them. But needle plates and loopers have to be changed quite often.”
