Juki is one of the largest sewing machine manufacturers in the world. Originating in Japan in 1945, Juki also has offices in China and the United States. Juki has developed highly specialized machines for both industrial and at home use, including the first rotary needle thread take-up in 1954 and the first automatic thread tensioning system in 1985.
There are many differences between industrial and domestic sewing machines that buyers should be aware of. Although there is only one stitch option on most industrial machines, the stitch quality is cleaner and better looking. Industrial machines are best suited for people who are already familiar with sewing and can sew at a fast pace, while domestic machines allow users to work slowly. Most industrial machines are maintenance-free, can sew through thicker fabric and hold more thread. However, storing a home machine is much easier as a larger industrial machine is often built into a table.
