Special Application Needle: SAN 5.2

The Special Applications Needle SAN5.2 from Groz-Beckert is a 2nd-generation sewing machine needle for technical textiles.
The designation of the special application needle is still SAN5. The needles with the new geometry carry the supplement “Version 5.2” on the label.

Processing technical textiles often involves extremely hard materials or combinations of material. Penetration resistance can be very high and lead to various problems.

Groz-Beckert has been supplying the SAN® 5 special application needle for years, a reliable product that reduces sewing problems when working with technical textiles. The upgraded SAN® 5.2 boosts process reliability even more and delivers additional advantages, especially for multi-directional sewing applications.
The double groove at the point, for instance, leads to better thread guidance for a more consistent seam pattern. The additional scarf chamfer on the left side enables secure loop pick-up using oscillating hooks.
