Whether you realise it or not, the most important decision you will take in your embroidery business is which machine you will purchase. The machine you choose will have a direct, perhaps, the biggest, impact on your profitability and it will be a decision that could be costly if you get it wrong.
Those who make their living from embroidery know that achieving efficient and profitable production is all about keeping your machines running as fast as possible, with the minimum amount of down time. However, the biggest challenges to modern embroidery production are the ever decreasing order volumes and the increase in production tasks this brings. Setting up the machine, loading the design, and framing the products for each order is time consuming and carries a significant cost in downtime. Having good systems and processes in place and well trained staff is key to keeping costs down. But that is only half of the picture. To be efficient you also need to be able to rely on your machine to sew good quality designs, repeatedly, fast and accurately.
Reliable embroidery production at high speeds, that gives consistently precise stitching of quality embroidery, is only possible on machines that are precision engineered to find tolerances; machines such as the ZSK Series that are capable of making extremely accurate movements at high speeds again and again. Whether you’re operating a single head machine, or multiple heads, the quality of the embroidery you produce should not be compromised. This is why your choice of embroidery machine is crucial – the quality of everything you produce depends on which machine you choose. What is really essential, and what really makes you money, is a machine that runs efficiently and accurately today, tomorrow, next month and for years to come.
