AMAYA XTS Multi-Head. 

Today's embroidery production demands are diverse. The AMAYA XTS multi-tasking abilities and network functionality enables businesses to take full advantage of consumer demand.

AMAYA XTS is versatile, its multi-head configurations can adapt to all production demands. Head for head, there is no comparison. These systems produce work orders not possible on conventional machines. Plus, the independent systems are not affected by single thread breaks like conventional machines, which shut down production of all heads. In addition to the ability to handle large production jobs, the heads can operate independently to fulfill small personalization orders and samples.  

Key Feature: Automatic Thread Tensioning Unlike any embroidery machine in the world, AMAYA XTS advanced engineering enables automatically adjusted thread tensions.

16 Colors with Automatic Thread Break Recovery System With the industry’s first Thread Break Recovery System, users can program groups of needles together. In the event of a thread break, the AMAYA XTS will automatically switch to the back up needle of the same color and continue to stitch. The Thread Break Recovery System can easily be configured for both multi-and single-head production.

Acti-Feed Thread Tension System With speeds up to 1500 spm the exclusive Acti-Feed™ system feeds the thread smoothly and automatically adjusts thread tensions so you don’t have to. This system ensures that you will get the same perfect quality on every sew–out.

Ultra Precised Laser Registration AMAYA XTS embroidery machines feature a laser eye for tracing and positioning. It makes the design setup fast and easy, and assures accurate placement throughout the sewing process. The laser eye can be activated automatically or the operator can manually activate the eye with the press of a button on the fast key pad.

Height Adjustable Presser Foot The patented height adjustable presser foot makes it easy to adjust to different fabrics. You can manually lower the presser foot without tools.

High Speed Pantograph (1500 SPM) All of the structural and moving parts are located above the garment, virtually eliminating the possibility of the material getting caught by the pantograph. The optimized x/y-beam with carriage means precise positioning when embroidering at high speeds.

The Industry's smallest Cylindrical Lower Arm and Ultra-Reliable High Performance Trimmer AMAYA XTS embroidery machines feature the smallest cylindrical lower arm in the industry–providing the largest cap stitch field available. The all new high performance trimmer slices effortlessly through metallic and thick burmilana thread.
