Industrial sewing machines require much more powerful motors than domestic (home) machines, both for speed and the torque to power heavy duty mechanisms through various fabrics and skins. There are basically two types of motor used in industrial sewing machines: clutch and servo.
Clutch motors, preferred by garment and canvas sewers, are meant to operate at full speed. One must be able to "feather the clutch" to sew slowly.
Electronically controlled servo motors, preferred by leather crafters and holster makers, only consume power as they drive the machine and have more granular slow speed control than most clutch motors.
Toledo Industrial Sewing Machines stocks a variety of industrial sewing machine clutch and servo motors, including the much sought after Family Sew FS-550s servo motor, described on the right.
