In general, chainstitch multineedle quilting machines are designed for stitching large quantities of homogeneous material with rare patterns changes and using patterns of relatively low density.
A classical example of these machines application can be the production of mattresses, where relatively large quantities of materials are quilted however with infrequent patterns changes. The patterns are often scattered (bigger sizes - quilted using smaller amounts of needles / threads).
Of course this does not mean that you can not use these machines for quilting more dense patterns or zoned ones (for example: wave distanted 1 inch in mattress' central part), however, if you intend to stitch dense patterns - e.g. caro 2 x 2 cm - in short series and with frequent changes of pattern - we recommend you to consider purchase of lockstitch machine.Below find please listed some basic differences between chainstitch and lockstitch machines:
Double chain stitch.
These machines quilt with double chain stitch - which on the contrary to popular opinions has much less tendency for self - unstitching at the edges after cutting than in case of lock stitch. Properly tied double chain stitch does not unstitch after cutting almost at all..
