For ALL Home Machines (including Bernina)
Titanium-coated needles have been available for longarm and industrial machines for many years, but these are the first titanium-coated Topstitch style needles made for home machines.
Superior Threads (USA) and Organ Needle Company (Japan) have applied the latest technology of titanium-coated needles to the Topstitch style for home machines. These new titanium-coated needles have an ultra thin coat of titanium nitride layered on the surface to extend their productive life by five to eight times that of conventional needles.
Most professionals recommend changing the needle every project or, if you count, every 8 hours.Imagine having a needle that will last 40 to 60 hours.This is equivalent to saving 80% on the cost of needles.
Another advantage and possibly the most important advantage is to do with prevention of thread breakages.
Some machine embroiderers find that even when using high quality threads they experience the thread snapping or shredding. The usual advice given is to change the needleand usually it works. However, if you understand why you change the needle, the advice makes much more sense.
Whilst in use a machine thread runs through the eye of the needle very fast, creating a groove which is unique to that thread. As each type of thread has its own unique weight and twist, when you change to a different type of thread the groove in the eye of the needle does not match the thread and trouble ensues.
The best needles come in neat plastic boxes and if you stick a label across the box you can note which needle you used for which thread, keep a separate needle for each type (Not colour!) of thread that you use. Taking the extra few seconds to change to it a special needle will make life much easier!!
Why mention it on a listing for titanium needles? Well the titanium coating is tough, so tough that it resists the thread as it runs through the needle and no groove is created in the eye.This means that you can put the needle into your machine for over 40 hours and just leave it there running any thread through it.This needle is sometimes known as the Magic needle, it really is a revolution in needle technology and I cannot recommend them enough.
