What to Consider Before Buying an Industrial Weaving Machine

All weaving machines might provide the same basic experience all through, but some come with more sophisticated features. Things you need to consider before on deciding which type to go for are

  • Your type of (tailoring) service: What you need the machine to do is the most paramount factor to consider before buying. . If you are into native wears only, Then a simple butterfly overlock machine should suffice for your need. But if you are into making corporate wears and vests you surely need one of the industrial over lock machine in order to achieve high-end quality finish that is required of you. In fact, some vests require that you get a machine that sew and serge simultaneously. More so, the type of hem or serge of an industrial weaving machine is quite different from what comes of an ordinary weaving machine
  • Your budget: The amount you aim to spend determines the brand you can go for or whether to settle for a brand new or a fairly used machine
  • Durability: This is another important factor you must consider before buying an overlock machine. You can get facts about the durability of those brands from people already using them. Generally, brands like Brother, EMEL and Butterfly are well known for durability and high efficiency.  Beware of buying Chinese brands whose name you never heard of in the market. Most give-in within few months of purchase
  • Availability of spare parts: Just like cars and other moving machines, weaving machines do have faults too at times, and such fault might require that you change one of the components of the machine. When these components aren’t available in market, it might render the machine useless.
  • Availability of Power Supply: All industrial weaving machines need electricity to power them. If you can’t get a sure and constant source of power supply , think twice before going for an industrial machine. Ordinary overlock machines can still work with manual machine stand.
  • Complexity:  Overlock machines come with varying constructions and complexities. Passing the threads of overlocks is really cumbersome at times. Go for the ones you are familiar with to avoid unnecessary frustrations.
