HCU2-1501 Series Heavy-Duty Commercial 1-Head Embroidery Machine

HCU2-1501 single head embroidery machine

The 15-needle HCU-Series is the company’s flagship, heavy-duty commercial single-head embroidery machine – evident immediately in the machine’s key specifications: with a very large 23.5″ x 15.7″ max sewing field, and max sewing speed of 1500spm, it delivers impressive capability for the commercial embroiderer.  In its latest form, the HCU2, HappyJapan introduces a revolutionary, keeper-less, ultra-low-profile sewing arm that greatly improves access to normally difficult areas like pockets, sleeves and cuffs.  As an industry leader, the HCU2 possesses many design innovations that make it a real standout in HappyJapan’s single-head lineup.
