How the Quick Change Cap System Can Transform Your Business

When you are pressed to get embroidery jobs done, nothing matters more than efficiency and maintaining the momentum of your workers. Having to switch between caps and flat hoops or from hoops to caps is one of those things that can break the flow. When the momentum of the job slows, it is challenging to build it back up again and this loss can severely affect the productivity of your company. The largest problem when changing between caps and flat hoops is having to pull out the tool, keep from dropping screws, and tediously lining up brackets with small holes. Fortunately, this major hassle has been uniquely solved by SWF embroidery machines. By utilizing the SWF Quick Change Cap System, your embroidery company can maintain its momentum between every job and maximize your business’ profits.

Unique Patented Design

Every embroidery machine manufacturer has to come up with their own ways of making their machines work, but not every design is efficient and user-friendly. SWF has designed a unique patented system that optimizes the process of changing caps and tubular hoops when switching between different embroidery jobs. They have done this by making three primary components: 1. a linear motion guide rail 2. a tapered steel pivot axle and 3. a slide bearing. The linear motion guide works to provide smooth and meticulous movement for cap embroidery while the weight of the cap driver is supported by the steel pivot axle. Working in tandem with the pivot axle and motion guide, the slide bearing, being constructed from precision ball bearings, enable the driver to accurately position each stitch. All these components are built into a single assembly that uniquely attaches to the same brackets as flat hoops. This unique design eliminates all the extra parts necessary to change from one system to the other.

Tool-less Transition from Hats to Hoops

Nearly all commercial embroidery machines suffer from design flaws requiring special tools to transition from running caps and flat tubular hoops. If you have ever dropped the screws need to mount your brackets and drivers behind your large embroidery machines you know what kind of difference a tool-less and screw-less design can make. The Quick Change Cap System by SWF has transformed the market by completely eliminating the need for tools and screws. No longer is there a need to find the right size Allen wrench or screwdriver, all that needs to be done is to unclip the cap driver and clip in your flat tubular hoop into the same brackets the cap driver was mounted on. By eliminating the things that slow down starting up each embroidery job, SWF has overcome one of the largest design flaws found in commercial embroidery machines today.
