Needle and Thread for Industrial Machine
« on: January 18, 2018, 10:07:58 AM »
Ok guy's... Probably going to make the jump into a Juki DNU-1541S in the very near future.

What is everyone using for needle size and thread type for 500D & 1000D along with some webbing?  Or just a bit of help on where to start...

Thanks as always,

John

I use #21 Groz Beckert titanium-coated needles (standard point, gold colored) with bonded polyester or bonded nylon #69(tex 70) across all my machines, including the bartacker. Occasionally use #92(tex 90) for top stitching when a more pronounced thread adds to the visual appeal of a product, not just for strength.

Dan,

Thank you so much for sharing the information. The company I'm getting the machine from wants to set it up for me and sew off using my needle, thread and base materials.

Appreciated,

John-

I use size 20 for Tex 70 (#69/E) bonded nylon thread in my Tacsew T-111. I've never had any problems related to my thread or needle size. If I were to step up a size in thread I'd get a bigger needle.
I've sewn anything from light weight nylons to 1000D Cordura with it, but I don't think I'd go any bigger if I were to sew anything lower than 500D.

Hey guys,

I'm kind of new to the whol industrial sewing machine thing. I'll have my Juki LU-563 in a few weeks and looking for the correct needle.
With all the info in the post above, I was looking for the needle.
This is what I end up with.

This would be the right needle for the job then.

A standard (unmodified) Juki LU-563 uses the 135X17 needle for fabrics, or the 135X16 type for leather. Both are available in multiple point styles and a large range of sizes with coatings if desired. Several of my fabric-type machines take the much shorter DPx5 needles shown on your link. Its not correct for your Juki.

Great explanation above.
Here is what a search for 135x17 looks like from the supplier I use. You would then select size number, (maybe 19-22) depending on thread and fabric and if you want some sort of coating on the needle.
