Reduce and Eliminate Downtime with Multi-head Production
Production efficiency is key to maximizing profit. Melco EMT16X commercial embroidery machines operate independently of each other on a computer network, resulting in little to no down-time in multi head production!
How Does Multi-head Production Work?
Melco embroidery machines are part of a computer network. The Melco Operating System, or MOS, controls each embroidery machine individually, which gives production managers the flexibility to produce different embroidery designs on each machine at the same time.
Here is a common scenario: Imagine running a large embroidery order on an EMT16X modular 4-head network. Suddenly, machine Number 2 has stopped for a bobbin change. With Melco EMT16X, 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 while machine Number 2 was stopped for a bobbin change, the other machines still put down 4,500 total stitches. Using a conventional multi-head embroidery machine, that one minute of downtime would have literally cost up to 4,500 stitches in production. But with the EMT16X super efficient system, it is possible to completely eliminate downtime in multi-head embroidery production.
What if I Still Need a Single-head Embroidery Machine for Rush Orders?
With the EMT16X, you get the benefit of a single-head embroidery machine and a multi-head embroidery machine, simultaneously. Imagine you’re in the middle of a high-volume production run and all of your embroidery machines are working to produce a left chest logo on a polo shirt. Suddenly, you get a rush order for 10 hats.. With the EMT16X modular embroidery system, you can pull a single embroidery machine from the multi-head network and set it up to produce the hat order without stopping the other embroidery machines.
