Both the home model and industrial model can do many common tasks necessary for stitching. Plain models are those machines we buy at home for domestic use. They consist of a body and a motor inside the main body. Industrial one have separate body and motor. The motor may be of about one tenth of horse power. the motor is mostly located under the table.
Home models can do common tasks like straight stitching, back stitching, zigzag stitching and some can even sew buttons. But the quality of stitches will be low and less consistent than an industrial model.
Industrial models give higher quality and performance than plain ones. they have more powerful motor and parts to withhold high impact stitching. the stitches are perfectly spaced and are of same size which lack in a home version. They are powerful, have high speed and strength.
if you try to stitch heavier fabrics with a home machine you may end end up with blunt needles and motor overload. On the other hand industrial ones blaze through all type of fabrics like denim because they have a stronger motor and pulley system.
If you use the machine for minor repair and sewing it is better to opt for the home versions. the initial expenditure is low and the machine lasts for a lifetime if properly cared for. The repairs pertaining to a home machine can be done at ones own home and you can even start a home business with it. Most of them are electronic and have a computer attached to it.
But if your plans are for better sewing and production capabilities you opt for a industrial model. they can simplify your business. This models are for mass producers and professionals.
