Common Bobbin Styles for Industrial Sewing Machines

There are currently over thirty different bobbin styles that are used with sewing machines. (The size of the bobbin is known as the bobbin's style.) Every sewing machine is designed to be used with a specific style of bobbin.  Many know how bobbins aid in sewing, but don't know or understand their various styles and uses. Some of the most common bobbin styles used for industrial sewing are listed below.

What Kind of Rip Cords Are Used in Wire and Cable Manufacturing?

Rip cords are industrial yarns located longitudinally just under the jackets that cover conductor wires in cables. The purpose of a rip cord is to cut back the jacket to expose the wires of the cable so you don't run the risk of cutting any of the wires inside (you pull the cord, it cuts the jacket). This helps make splicing cables easier during installations.

ASTM D7016 - Importance of fire retardant sewing thread in mattresses

Many products use components created in places other than the final assembly site. Each component must itself conform to safety standards. The logic here is that if something is composed of parts that each pass safety tests, the final product will be safety compliant. A mattress is such a product, and its materials must be fire resistant so that the product sold to consumers can be deemed safe.

What are the differences between Meta-Aramid and Para-Aramid yarns?

When a manufacturer is seeking a synthetic fiber that addresses heat and flame resistance, or one that demands extreme tensile strength, two materials immediately come to mind, the commercially branded Dupont™ Nomex® and Kevlar® composite materials. Each of these belong to the class of aramid fibers with the general characteristics which include a high melting point, a high strength to weight ratio and low elongation at break. These composite materials were developed by Dupont™ labs in the sixties and although Nomex® and Kevlar® are similar, they belong in different 'aromatic polyamide' classes, that is the meta-aramid and para-aramid fibers, respectively.
