Modular Embroidery Machine - EMT16

Melco EMT16 Commercial Embroidery Machine Overview

Faster Embroidery
Melco EMT16 is built on the solid foundation of proven Melco technology, with advancements that boost production by 20% over older Melco machines.

Easy Operation
Melco’s patented Acti-Feed™ system revolutionized the embroidery industry many years ago by making embroidery machines easier to learn and use. Melco EMT16 combines that technology with a simplified user interface, so machine operation and training is easier than ever. New machine operators can be trained in as little as 30 minutes.

Industrial Platform
The machine cart is designed for mobility, strength and functionality. If mobility is part of your business plan, Melco EMT16 will deliver. Sturdy wheels enable you to easily move the machine from one part of your shop to another. The new machine stand was designed with a large open space under the pantograph so that large, bulky items are free to move with the machine. For those that desire a working surface, a removable table top is optional.

 
[ Single-Head Startup ] 
 
One of the most compelling reasons to choose Melco embroidery systems is the modular capability. Head for head, Melco embroidery machines are engineered to produce. That productivity coefficient increases exponentially as you add more heads, leading to compound increases in profit margin.
 
Many startups purchase only one head at first. An entrepreneur can learn embroidery for a minimal up-front investment, and add machines as needed. Here are some other great reasons to make Melco your first machine:
 
  • Melco machines are easy to learn.
     
  • Multiple training options are available, including on-site training and online webinars.
     
  • Excellent customer service via phone and email.
     
  • A two year bumper to bumper warranty comes standard with each machine. Many individual machine components are covered with a five year warranty. Extended warranty programs are available.
     
  • Adding machines in the future is easy.
     
  • Embroidery design software is included with your machine. Choose one of four
    software options to fit your business.

 

 

[ Modular Multi-Head Production ] 
 
Melco EMT16s operate independently of each other, on the same network. Imagine running a large embroidery order on your multi-head system. Suddenly, there is a thread break on head number two. With Melco EMT16s, all other heads will keep running while the thread break is fixed on head two. In contrast, all heads on a conventional system will stop until the problem is fixed.
 
Here’s another scenario. Imagine you’re in the middle of a high-volume production run, all of your heads are working to produce a left chest logo on a polo shirt. Suddenly you get an order for 10 hats, and it’s a rush job. With EMT16, you can pull a single head from the production run and set it up to produce the hat order without stopping production on the polo shirts. This is all done on the same system, using the same computer on a single network.
 
  • Melco EMT16 is designed for commercial, high-output production.
     
  • The modular, mobile system can be configured as needed for your specific situation.
     
  • ROI is achieved in as little as 11 months, based on an average of 5 embroidered garments per day, or about 45 minutes of machine run time per day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

[ Acti-Feed Thread Control ] 

We've taken the difficult guess-work out of thread tension!

Take a close look at the front of any modern Melco embroidery machine. You'll notice something missing... the thread tension adjustment knobs you find on typical commercial embroidery machines. With Melco AMAYA, XTS and EMT16, manually adjusted thread tension is not necessary.

Here's how it works:
Thread tension is controlled by the embroidery machine's operating system (Melco OS or AMAYA OS). You tell the software what type of material you're running and what type of thread you're using. Then the software takes over, adjusting thread tensions on the fly. This results in greater efficiency and more production from the machine.

But that's not all.

The patented Acti-Feed system includes Thread Break Recovery (TBR). In the event that a thread break does occur, the machine can be programmed to switch to a backup needle of the same color and continue to sew.

Acti-Feed thread technology represents the greatest advancement in commercial embroidery technology in decades. Automatic thread tension combined with the TBR system means less machine down-time, leading to greater profit margins for any embroidery business.
