Industrial Sewing Machines

An industrial sewing machine is the product that Brother founded its business with, and we have continuously been leading the industrial sewing machine industry in fabric (cotton, linen, and so forth) sewing. With this as our backbone, Brother launched a next-generation sewing machine brand, in 2015. The first brand product, the lock stitch sewing machine, has features that revolutionize the conventional norms of the industry, such as the world’s first electronic feeding system, and are receiving good reviews from users. Our garment printers, which enable the making of prints on clothes, employ Brother’s unique technologies as a printer manufacturer. We are expanding our sales channels of our garment printers in the Asian market by exploiting our experience gained in the European and North American market.

Industrial Equipment

Brother's industrial equipment was developed through our principle of self-sufficiency to manufacture machine tools needed to make key parts of sewing machines in-house. In 1985, Brother released the CNC Tapping Center. It has been well received by our customers because it is compact in size, but yet offers high productivity and environmental performance for processing parts needed by the automobile and IT industries. After the launch of our next-generation machine tool brand, SPEEDIO, in 2013, we have released models that can process bigger parts and models that are capable of lathe turning processing, and have been exploiting new markets.

Industrial Parts

In 2013, Brother acquired Nissei Corporation, which has a high market share for reducers and high-precision gears in Japan, as its consolidated subsidiary, and entered into the industrial parts business, which can give us opportunities to provide high added value for customers. As for gear motors, our core products of reducers, we offer an extensive product lineup, and have the ability to deliver products within a short period of time and handle special order items flexibly, and are responding to various customer demands. As for high-precision gears, we develop and manufacture products used for robots and machine tools mainly. By executing the entire process from product designing to manufacturing consistently within the company, we create highprecision and high-quality products. Thus, our products have a high reputation in the market, especially for our cutting technology for bevel gears*1.
