Features No Other Commercial Embroidery Machine Can Touch!

  • Simultaneous Single-Head AND Multi-Head Embroidery: Businesses love EMT16 PLUS embroidery machines because you get the power of both a single-head system and a multi-head system. Melco has flipped traditional embroidery machine production on its head with a completely new concept. This system is adaptable to any production scenario. Set up multiple machines on your network to produce the same design at the same time. Or, use each of those heads to simultaneously produce different designs from the same computer.


  • Scalability: Imagine a scalable embroidery machine network that allows you to expand your embroidery production as needed. That's the beauty of EMT16 PLUS. This modular embroidery system is superior to a standard multi-head embroidery machine because you can add individual heads to the system at any time and configure your embroidery network to match your production needs. Even in multi-head configurations, individual heads can be set up for embroidery on different products. For example, you can have three heads running polo shirts while one runs hat embroidery. Learn more about multi-head embroidery machine configurations here.


  • Laser Alignment: Embroidery positioning is easy and accurate with Laser Alignment.


  • Acti-Feed™ Thread System: Thread feed is controlled by the Melco Operating System (MOS). This allows EMT16 PLUS embroidery machines to deliver the precise amount of thread needed at any given time, resulting in the highest quality stitching at the fastest speeds possible.


  • Small, Cylindrical Lower Arm: Embroidery on shirt pockets, socks, golf club covers, and other tight places is possible due to the small size of the lower arm on EMT16 PLUS embroidery machines.
