Dual Function Embroidery Machines

Kyle McMinn doesn't want to just meet the standards set by the embroidery industry; he wants to raise the bar even higher. The CEO of Stitch It International says the key to doing that is to not only have a team of people who know the industry, but also breed creativity and inspire those around them.

Serving as SWF's official distributor for the United States, Stitch It International knew the Dual Function series of embroidery machines would benefit embroiders twofold. Patented Dual Function Technology allows two different items and patterns to be embroidered simultaneously on one machine. Also, the entire machine won't stop during a thread break and operators can set up the next job while the machine still is running, resulting in reduced downtime and more efficient production.

The Dual Function machines can work as a traditional multihead or two independent machines. Other features include the ability to embroider caps and flat, tubular hoops simultaneously; tool-less transition between both via the Quick Change Cap System; and a 10.4-inch control panel.

"With simultaneous jobs able to run, users can finish production on several projects without stoppage," McMinn says. "This means increased revenue overall through saved time and high production for those that use this machine for their business. Most importantly, quality stitching standards are maintained with this increased productivity.
