By the way: The Universal needle is only called so because it is equipped with the slightly rounded tip, also called normal round point or R-point. This point is commonly referred to in the needle world as the standard point because it has a very wide application on a wide variety of materials. In addition to this R point, about 70 other types of points optimized for the application and material are produced for needles. Most of them are found in industrial needles. In the field of household sewing machines, however, some lace forms have also become established which are more suitable than the R lace due to the various materials. Examples are the SUK point, various ball points, cutting points for leather and foils, etc.
To make it easier for customers in the retail trade, the needle with the R point has thus been called universal needle and others of the same system, for example, jeans needle, jersey needle, microtex needle, embroidery needle, metallic needle, quilting needle, leather needle - to name just a few. However, they can also be used universally only in sewing machines that use the needle system 130/705 H with a flattened piston or also flat piston! This is important, because besides that there are also household sewing machines that use the 287 WH system, where the needles have a round piston and are therefore also called round piston needles. By the way, the piston is the part of the needle that is clamped in the machine.
