About melco

A modular embroidery machine system combines the advantages of conventional multi-head embroidery machines with the advantages of conventional single-head embroidery machines. This is done by connecting between 2 and 30 single-head machines over a network and controlling them from a single computer. This allows you to...
- Group machines with just one click and then load the same design on all of them and change settings simultaneously — just like on a conventional multi-head machine. This minimizes set-up times.
- To have all machines produce independently of each other — just like a single-head machine. So when one machine is at a standstill, all other machines continue to produce.
- Minimize downtime so drastically that your productivity can increase by up to 100%. Thanks to all these factors you save up to 50% of your embroidery production costs!
