After testing a lot of products, we have selected the 8 best industrial sewing machines for 2019 which are mentioned below. In our experiments, we have found these products most consistent in performance and true value for the money.
SINGER | Heavy Duty 4423 Sewing Machine
Not all Singer 4423 reviews are positive on the fabrics it can sew. Like not being able to sew thicker materials such as heavy felt. Or two layers of canvas and one of plastic. So if you have really thick materials, this Singer model may not be for you.
The ability to change the… length or width of a stitch is crucial. Right? You need a longer stitch for thicker materials. And shorter stitches as the fabric gets lighter and thinner. That’s what you get with the 4423. It’s a simple turn of the dial. Turn the Stitch Width Dial from zero through 6 settings to the largest width of 6mm. The Stitch Length Dial starts at 0.5 and has 4 settings up to the width of 4mm.
The adjustments on both dials give you the freedom to be creative. Adjusting the length creates different effects. And that change alters how the inbuilt stitches look. When you zig zag, the closer you set the length to zero the denser the stitches get. And your width gets wider as you move the dial toward 6.
Brother PQ1500SL High Speed Quilting and Sewing Machine
Serious quilters need a serious quilting machine. The Brother PQ1500SL fits the bill, offering a 1,500-stitch sewing speed, generous extension table and automatic needle positioner for professional-quality quilts. If you don’t want to spend $1000 on a quilting machine (like the Juki tl2010 reviewed here), then at this price range, this model is one of the best rated quilting machines we’ve ever seen, it’s hard to find anything to complain about with this machine.
If you enjoy free motion quilting, you’ll love the… feed dog height adjustment feature. Four heights are available to accommodate just about any project. A pin feed mechanism is also included, which allows you to exchange the feed dogs for a pin, which cleanly extends from underneath the machine. This pin allows you to move your quilt layers together with ease, or to work with difficult fabrics, like velvet, without leaving feed dog marks behind.
The Brother PQ1500SL is ideal for machine quilters who want to take their projects to the next level. With convenient automatic features, a built-in knee lever and a lightning fast sewing speed, this machine will have you completing projects in record time. Brother also offers excellent support, so if you ever do run into trouble with your machine, you can get the help you need to fix the issue and continue sewing.
SINGER 4411 Heavy Duty Sewing Machine
The Singer 4411 sewing machine is designed with a metal frame to allow it to handle all kinds of sewing jobs. It was also designed to have an extra-high sewing speed of 1,100 stitches per minute. This machine is designed to sew most things that the home sewist would want with the correct needle and thread.
It also includes a quilting guide. You attach it so you can sew… seams a consistent distance away from a prior seam. This can be useful when making other decorative stitches on home decoration projects or duffel bags. The foot pedal has a cord to connect to the machine. So you will need to find a good sewing area where you can plug the machine in and have the pedal on the floor.
It is super fast, and you will need to practice using the foot pedal so gain the confidence in driving your machine. The Singer 4411 is also a great sewing machine for someone returning to sewing. You’ll be able to sew a wide variety of projects easily. You won’t outgrow it quickly if you’re focused on just sewing rather than embellishments.
Janome Industrial-Grade Aluminum-Body HD1000
Are you an experienced or novice sewer looking for a sturdy sewing machine? Are you tired of plastic gears or your sewing machine jamming or malfunctioning frequently? Or perhaps you are just looking for a new sewing machine that comes with a good amount of stitches and some great extras?
The Janome HD1000… Black Edition Sewing Machine might just be the one for you. It comes with an aluminum interior and exterior, a 25-year limited warranty, and 14 different stitches. While there have been some user complaints about skipped stitches, and it not being able to handle bulkier fabric, why don’t we take a look for ourselves?
The warranty protects the user against any problems they have with the “materials or workmanship, with the exception of electrical/electronic equipment, which is warranted for a period of two years from the date of original purchase.” The first year you have the sewing machine, you will be able to receive replacements for any parts that are defective and any labor free of charge.

It provides a 5-4-3-2 stitch configuration with a variety of stitch styles. It offers a number of accessories and adjustable components to make operation as comfortable and customizable as possible. The Singer 14T968DC is a serger worthy of use for the most important sewing tasks.
The Singer 14T968DC serger… has a 5-4-3-2 stitch capability to ensure a perfect stitch with rolled hems, cover hems, chain stitching and more.

Consew 206RB-5 Triple Feed, Heavy Duty
Consew industrial sewing machines are built as tough as tanks and are capable of sewing medium density leather, heavy cloth, vinyl, webbing, bioplastic and other materials, with fairly heavy thread.
The 206RB has a flat bed with… 10 1/2 inches of inside clearance; ideal for sewing couch and seat covers, bimini covers, belts, webbing, denim clothing, coats, leather garments, wallets, book covers, and pancake style gun and tool holsters. It has a separate locking stitch length dial and a push down, adjustable reverse lever, which sews into the same holes in reverse. The machine uses the same inner and outer walking presser feet as the Singer 111w155 and most other walking foot machines.
This machine features a semi-automatic oiling system for the hook and shuttle drive parts and centralized oil feed wicks for the upper moving parts. The machine has a large, horizontal axis rotary hook that uses a big M style bobbin. The bobbin shuttle has a push button reset safety clutch that disengages the bobbin drive mechanism – to protect the machine from jumping timing in the event the bobbin shuttle jams with loose thread.
Juki DDL-5550 Industrial Straight Stitch Sewing Machine
The Juki DDL-5550 Industrial Straight Stitch Sewing Machine does exactly what it says on the tin — industrial levels of sewing with one, straight stitch.
All put together right from delivery, the machine comes with… everything you need to start sewing immediately. In the table and stand, attached to the machine, is a drawer where you can easily keep all your necessary accessories.
Along with the machine itself, the Juki DDL-5550 industrial straight stitch sewing machine comes with a packet of extra needles, one bobbin (any extras would need to be bought separately), a bobbin case, two screwdrivers to fit the machine’s screws, and a bottle of oil for the lubrication the machine needs to work.
Janome MC-6300P Professional Heavy-Duty Computerized
When I first cracked open the box and saw it sitting there, my first thought was , “Man, this is BIG!” That thought was immediately followed by “..and heavy!” as I pulled it out of the box and on to the table. While the size and weight of this machine mean that this isn’t the model that you’d pack up to take to a friend’s house or a sewing class, it does mean that it’s a pretty heavy duty machine. And 9” of sewing space accommodates larger projects (hey, quilters!).
This is a nice feature. The speed control is like a governor… for your sewing machine; it sets the maximum speed that your machine can go. I tend to sew fast, and sometimes I get cocky and think that I can stitch faster than I ought to. When I’m sewing long, straight seams you better believe that I have it set to all-out full speed. But on tricky curves or times when I need to be more careful, I can lower the max speed so my stitching stays neat.
Serious home sewists and professionals. The price tag makes this more appropriate as an investment in a serious hobby, rather than a “let’s see if I like sewing” machine.
