Industrial Sewing Needles
“Will it work in my machine?”
With the naked eye, it is hard to tell a difference between needles.
But when you are stitching at 500 or 1,500 stitches per minute, you can definitely tell when you have a good needle or a bad needle.
The designation of 'MR' is "Multi Range" (also known as SAN: Special Application Needle) which was created for the textile industry, more specifically, the 'MR' needle style was developed for automated sewing processes with multidirectional feeding systems.
If your machine is not stationary (such as a Longarm machine), then the 'MR' needle style is the one to use.
#14 = MR 3.0
#16 = MR 3.5
#18 = MR 4.0
#19 = MR 4.5
#20 and #21 = MR 5.05 )
We Recommend GROZ BECKERT & SCHMETZ Needles for Longarm machines
