The latest technology from ZSK has set new benchmarks throughout the embroidery sector. After the industry was given the smallest cylinder arm in the industry in 2016, ZSK has taken it that step further with the new Racer 1XL 24 needle machine.

The Racer 1XL, developed and produced with the same German engineering and manufacturing as all ZSK embroidery machines, is state-of-the-art in respect to embroidery speed, precision and flexibility.

The Racer 1XL is the latest member of the popular ZSK Racer tubular machine series, available with one, two, four, six and eight embroidery heads. What does the new model offer compared to other single head machines? Unique 24 colour/needles and an enormous embroidery field of 650x700mm. This concept is ideal for all applications which need a larger embroidery field in combination with more colours than the standard 12, such as producers of flags, banners, or just the rising demand of online-shop systems.

The Racer 1XL can still be used in the standard embroidery functions, such as border frame, cap or tubular mode. The change between these different functions is fast and easy.

The Racer 1XL is equipped with the thinnest tubular arm of the industry, measuring at just 43×44.3mm, offering more possibilities to enter into tiny tubular objects than other single head embroidery machines.

By default, the Racer 1XL comes with additional 92mm useable depth at the tubular arm. This provides the possibility to embroider on a large area on tubular objects, such as trousers and jackets, without a shortage on space.

  • Border frame, tubular and cap embroidery modes.
