Household Zig-Zag Sewing Machine Head

IS Standard : IS 15449:Part1:2004

The primary part of a sewing machine intended for home use that is capable of producing zigzag stitches is referred to as the household zigzag sewing machine head. Typically, this sewing machine head has a number of crucial parts and sewing systems, including feed dogs, a zigzag stitch selection, a needle, and a presser foot. It's a handy and easy-to-use tool for both ornamental and artistic stitching as well as basic sewing. 

The ability of household zigzag sewing machine heads to provide accurate stitches and long-lasting sturdiness is what makes them so famous. They are priceless additions to homes because they foster creativity, self-sufficiency, sustainability, and skill development. 

Under IS standard IS 15449 (Part 1):2004, all home zigzag sewing machine heads are now covered by the required ISI Certification Scheme.

The manufacturing, chemical, and physical requirements as well as the testing protocols for home zigzag sewing machine heads are described in this standard.

For retracing stitches, sewing machines need to include a mechanism that allows the feed dog's feed movement to reverse. The feeding direction has to be controlled by the stitch regulator and should be able to be changed while the machine is running. To provide the required stitch quality, every machine should include an adjustable thread tension mechanism for both upper and lower threads. Sewing machines with a two-thread lock stitch capability should be able to create a single-needle, twin-needle, or a mix of the two designs.

Without the ISI Mark, this product cannot be marketed, imported, or exported into the Indian consumer market.


About ISI / BIS Certification

Indian Standards Institute, or ISI was renamed the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in 1987. The official mark that the Bureau of Indian Standards provides for manufacturers of various goods is the ISI Mark. It is used to indicate compliance with Indian standards (IS) set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and has been used as a conformity marking for industrial products. Manufacturers received permission from BIS to use the ISI Mark on items that comply with relevant Indian requirements through the product certification program. 

Only manufacturers (domestic or foreign) who produce the finished product will be awarded ISI Certification. This will not be given to any product importers, traders, dealers, or distributors.
