JGVA 0109 - Triple Embroidery Head System for Technical Applications
The embroidery technologies developed by ZSK TECHNICAL EMBROIDERY SYSTEMS, a division of ZSK STICKMASCHINEN enable a wide scope of products, applications, and methodical procedures to be implemented for specific design goals and constraints.
The JGVA is designed as a highly capable and integrated Smart Textiles and Composites development center.
This advanced model can create anything any ZSK embroidery machine can do. It was designed with robustness in mind to help makers and creators flush out their design, as well as do small batch manufacturing for timing studies.
This machine is a powerful platform to stitch circuit boards, embroider wires, place sequins, create soft bioelectric sensors, and create composite parts.

Twin Active Supply Unit
The Twin Active Supply Unit for wires and fibers with standard motors can be installed on each laying head. Each supply system can take wire or fiber rolls up to 10kg. A new function implemented detects the end of supplied media.
Conversion kit for the supply of wires or fibers from the active supply unit to the ZigZag layer.
Conversion Kit Small reel
Conversion kit small reel to feed wires / fibers from a small reel, which can turn unlimited around the needle as an alternative to an installed active supply unit. Not applicable in connection with wire/fiber changer and ZigZag layer motor outside of the head.
Winder to rewind wire or fiber strings onto small rolls for the ZigZag layer for the W-head.
Wire Hit Detection System
If a laid wire is hit by the needle the machine stops and indicates the affected laying head. The defective part can be marked to be removed. In many branches like in the production of car seat heating systems this function is obligatory.
Automatic Unwinding of Z-Axis
If wires / fibers are supplied from an active supply unit via pipes to the ZigZag layer the maximum rotation is limited to 360°. This option allows to adjust at what degree of the Z-axis an automatic unwinding shall be executed.
Three different layer feet each for wire and fiber
All electronic devices of a ZSK technical embroidery machine can be protected against carbon dust.
Auto Select Bobbin Changer for F-head
Auto Select Boobin Changer for F-head with a magazine for 8 bobbin cases, including bobbin cases and bobbins. The Auto Select Bobbin Changer enables the allocation of any bobbin case of the magazine to a specific needle or a singular access.
Upgrade Kit Thick Yarn
Additional thread tension and other picker for thick thread
F- and K-head: eyelets for special threads
K-head: special gate for conductive yarns.
EPCwin 7 Digitizing Software
EPCwin is the standard software for technical applications on embroidery machines.
The software offers i.e.:
- CAD drawing functions,
- Excellent solutions for team work,
- Switching between the various ZSK technologies,
- Changing machine settings flexibly during the embroidery process.

The F-head is the most commonly used embroidery technology, often referred to as standard embroidery.
By using this standard technology with a satin- or running stitch with conductive threads, many applications for wearables, e-textiles and smart textiles are possible.
The F-head of the JGVA offers 9 needles or space for 9 different yarns.
The K-head creates moss embroidery. This single thread system creates loops at the surface of the carrier material. Voluminous surfaces will be generated by the compact placement of the stitches.
An actuator system with four separate single motor units supports the customization of parameters like the height of the loops, the presser foot or the inclined position to satisfy required needs.
Moss embroidery associated with electro conductive yarn is the ideal combination for products from the fields of smart textiles, wearables and medical textiles.
The W-head allows the laying of fibers, wires, and tubes onto a textile or a flexible carrier material.
Embroidery technologies like the tailored wire placement, tailored fiber placement (TFP), and tailored tube placement can be realized with this technical head.
