But which industrial embroidery machine is perfect for cap embroidery? And which model is best suited to your business’ individual needs and requirements? We’ll explain all in this post so that you can make smarter investments to help drive your business forwards. 

 

We’ll cover:

Once your business starts to grow, you’re going to need the extra capacity to deal with increasing customer demands. If you’re trying to grow your business while just using a single-head machine, you’re limiting what your business can produce and won’t be achieving your maximum potential. 

So, you’re going to need to add more machine heads to your overall production line. That way, you can double, triple, quadruple or multiply your capacity even more! Think about it, the more heads that you have on your machines, the more caps that you can embroider at the same time. This saves so much time and frees up room to welcome new and larger jobs.

Multi-head embroidery machines are necessary if you want to achieve minimum turnaround times but maximum results. During busy periods, simply telling your customers that you’re busy and they’ll have to wait for their orders to be fulfilled isn’t an option. People are impatient and there’s plenty of competition to choose from within the cap embroidery market should you not meet their needs and requirements. 

We’ve chosen this 4-headed HappyJapan machine as a natural progression up from a single-head. Sure, it’s a big step but you must be positive with your investment. Plus, think of the money that you’ll save when it comes to further invest. As you grow, you’d easily start to outgrow a 2 or 3-headed machine, so why not future proof your business for the next few years?

It’s main features are:

  • 10.4-inch colour LCD touch screen control panel.
  • Multi-head 15 colours.
  • Maximum speed: 1000 SPM.
