Flat Shank Needles VS Industrial Sewing Machine Needles

Also known as domestic or household needles, flat shank needles are most commonly used for domestic sewing and embroidery. These needles have a flat side on the shank to act as a guide when inserting the needle into the needle holder on a sewing machine.

Industrial needles, on the other hand, have a fully rounded shank and call for more precision when inserting into a machine. Industrial sewing machines are built to work with complicated patterns and stitching, requiring needles that are manufactured not only for strength, but also in a variety of sizes. Just as domestic needles should only be used with domestic sewing machines, industrial sewing needles are designed expressly for industrial sewing machines.

Leather Point Needles from Organ

Unlike woven or knit materials, leather does not have an engineered structure. As such, sewing leather and leather-like materials may pose potential stitching problems. A standard sharp round point needle may do a fine job when working with very thin, soft leather materials, however; for most leather, a specialized cutting point will achieve the best results.
We supply a variety of diamond, triangle, and wedge point needles to enhance the appearance and strength of stitched leather. Browse our selection of Organ leather point needles. Contact us for more information.

Organ Needle Systems & Sizes

Different models of sewing machines require different sizes and types of sewing needles. Needle systems define which machines can use which needles. All needles in a system are the same length and shank size, but are usually available in various diameters (sizes), point designs, and finishes.
  • Lower size numbers indicate narrower or thinner needles, typically used for lighter materials.
  • Higher size numbers indicate a needle with a thicker diameter, ideal for heavier materials.
Match your needle system to your machine and the size of the needle to the material you are sewing. Contact us for help determining the needle system and/or size best suited to your application.

Organ Needle Finishes

The coatings and finishes used on a needle impact its level performance. We offer three main types of Organ needle finishes:
  • Chromium
  • Perfect Durability (PD), titanium
  • COOL-SEW (Anti-Friction, Anti-Glue)
Chromium is the most common needle coating as it provides excellent protection against rust and deterioration. Chromium improves the smoothness of all surfaces, including the inside of the needle eye. It is the standard coating for all industrial sewing machine needles due to the demands of higher speed sewing.

Titanium plating, such as Organ’s Perfect Durability finish (PD), prevents premature deterioration of the needle point, needle eye, and surfaces. Titanium plated needles are well-suited to aramid threads and flame retardant materials. Perfect Durability titanium plating extends the needle life, resulting in a higher productivity output and less damage to fabric. PD plating works best for automated sewing operations even with soft materials and threads.

COOL-SEW (LP & HP) finishes are beneficial when sewing with synthetic threads and materials that may heat up and melt due to friction. COOL-SEW finishes alleviate adhesion problems caused by rubberized, glued, vinyl, or other synthetic materials sticking to the needle.

Point Designs for Organ Brand Needles

The right point style for your application will depend on the type of material being sewn, as well as the desired stitch effect you want to achieve. We offer a wide range of needle point styles from Organ, including round point needles, ball point needles, and leather point needles.
  • The most common needle point is called a “set” or “sharp” point. It’s ideal for sewing tightly woven materials and softer leather-like materials.
  • Knit or loosely woven stretch materials benefit from the use of BALL POINT needles. Ball Point needles parry their way between the yarns to avoid breaking the fibers of the stretch material (preventing the formation of  holes when stress is applied to the sewn material).
  • Plastic, vinyl, leather, and leather-like materials benefit from needle points designed to perform predictably shaped holes, improve penetration, and avoid the “bursting” effect that other standard needle points may cause.
