Specialized Machines for Industry

Specialized Machines for Industry as described by Singer Sewing Machine Co. in 1914

Hardly a week passes without a demand from some manufacturer for a machine to perform some special duty or stitching process and this has resulted in the creation of, not only hundreds of distinct types or classes of Singer machines, but no less than 2,356 "varieties" or modifications of these "classes" to meet these special requirements.

The practical results of this specialization are indicated by the list of industries shown:
