EmbroideryConnect is the exciting new solution to enable wireless design transfer capabilities to virtually any USB-ready embroidery machine. Whether you use a Tajima, Barudan, Happy, ZSK, SWF or any other brand, this is the answer.
Connections are now hassle free. There is no longer a need for serial ports or design spoolers, different interface methods or special wiring. Simply install EmbroideryConnect on your Windows WiFi networked PC, plug the compatible WiFi USB Stick into a machine, and your design is ready to go.
If you have multiple embroidery machines, just insert a compatible WiFi USB Stick into each one. EmbroideryConnect will allow you to select the desired machine and send the design ready to be stitched out.
Even if you have multiple EmbroideryStudio e4 systems on your network, they are all able to wirelessly send designs to any available EmbroideryConnect machine.
2018 is the year of wireless, low-cost embroidery and will prove to be another step forward for Wilcom and a giant leap for embroidery-kind.
