It’s been nearly two centuries since the invention of the first embroidery machine, and while some important advances occurred in the intervening years (like modern electricity!), the machine’s basic workflow has remained fairly stagnant. Until now.
The advent of wireless technology has finally arrived at the embroiderer’s door, and it’s a gamechanger. In 2019, SWF introduced its new KS-Series, the first line of embroidery machines in the U.S. with WiFi networking capability. What does this mean for embroiderers?
The KS-Series’ WiFi networking feature allows users to control up to 200 machines from one computer. You can transfer designs seamlessly from computer to machine, which means no more clunky USB-drive transfers.
Using the WiFi capability, users can both start and monitor progress from one computer – saving time and also catching potential problems faster.
Alongside WiFi technology, the KS-Series brings a host of other innovative features and solutions to embroiderers. Its 1,200 SPM offers unparalleled high-speed operation, while the 490 million stitch capacity equals superior memory. A 15.1-inch touchscreen control panel displays current jobs in real-time. An adjustable presser foot offers advanced control, making previously hard-to-handle projects, like 3D puff designs, easier than ever.
Other features – like SWF’s patented Quick Change Cap system, thread break detection and laser tracing – enhance productivity and decrease errors, which mean more profits for your business. Plus, this series is flexible, offering options with two, four, six and eight heads to fit a variety of operational needs.
