Sewing machine types and models needed for making different apparel products

For beginners, it is always a big question of how to decide machine types (and machine model numbers). In this post, I will share an online resource from where you can easily learn about various machine types for the below apparel item and non-apparel items (Home textile and automobiles). The resource I am going to disclose is Pegasus industrial sewing machine list for sewn products.

In an earlier post, I had shared the Juki Machine model list link for making different types of sewn apparel products. In the same way, Pegasus has provided the list of sewing machine types and Pegasus machine model number for making different garments for sewing specific seams of each type of item.

Thanks to Pegasus team for sharing such a useful guide for newcomers and students. I hope this list would help industrial engineers and production managers for getting a reference for planning the machine requirement (I mean machine type) for the new apparel products.
