Needles for industrial embroidery machines

The right needle for your desired embroidery result

Why adjust the needle to the thread and base material? Choosing the right needle helps to achieve the desired embroidery result. The choice of needle essentially depends on the base material to be embroidered and the choice of the thread. A wrongly chosen needle can cause thread breakage, "thread balls", skipped stitches, material damage, puckering or an irregular embroidery appearance.



MADEIRA offers the right embroidery needle for industrial multi-head and single-head embroidery machines and every available thread. Not only do we help you choose the right needle for the job, but we also give you useful tips about needle settings and our assortment. On each of our shade cards you can find the most suitable needle size and shape for your MADEIRA embroidery thread.

Two needle systems to choose from

Needle system DB x K5

The DB x K5 needle system was developed for high-performance multi-head embroidery machines. It is the universally usable system with the highest stability. The purpose of the developers was to reduce skipped stitches and thread breakage as well as material damage and looping.

Needle system Brother PR

Brother PR semi-professional single-head embroidery machines require a different needle system. For this purpose, MADEIRA offers needles in sizes 65, 75, 90 and 100, with which all MADEIRA threads can be processed.
