What is a "Modular Embroidery Machine", and why would I want one?
Production efficiency is key to maximizing profit. Melco EMT16 PLUS commercial embroidery machines operate independently of each other, on the same network. So what's the benefit? Little to no down-time in multi-head production!
Here is a common scenario: Imagine running a large embroidery order on an EMT16 PLUS 4-head network. Suddenly, machine Number 2 has stopped for a bobbin change. With Melco EMT16 PLUS, the other three embroidery machines are NOT affected by the stoppage of one machine. At speeds up to 1500 stitches per minute, this means that even though machine Number 2 stopped for a minute during the bobbin change, the other machines still put down 4,500 total stitches during the time it takes to replace the bobbin! Using a conventional multi-head embroidery machine, that one minute of downtime would have literally cost up to 4,500 stitches in production. With this super efficient system, it is possible to have NO DOWN-TIME in multi-head embroidery production.
Here’s another scenario. Imagine you’re in the middle of a high-volume production run, all of your embroidery machines 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 the EMT16 PLUS embroidery system, you can pull a single embroidery machine from the production run and set it up to produce the hat order without stopping the other embroidery machines on the multi-head network.

Study this industry for long, and you'll quickly become familiar with the term "personalization". That's what much of embroidery is about, right? The entire monogramming segment is built on the idea of personalized gifts, including hats, purses, tote bags, towels, blankets, and much more. Personalization has been around forever, BUT the idea of MASS personalization is relatively new, and something Melco does really, really well. So what is Mass Personalization? It's a bit of an oxymoron, given a moment's thought. But that's really the beauty of it. Mass personalization is the process of creating a multitude of personalized items at the same time. With Melco embroidery technology, mass personalization is a real possibility with EMT16 PLUS embroidery machines in multi-head configuration. You see, Melco embroidery machines are part of a computer network. The Melco Operating System, or MOS, controls each embroidery machine on the network individually. This gives production managers the flexibility to produce different embroidery designs on each embroidery machine, AT THE SAME TIME. Hence, Mass Personalization. Find out more.
