Coloreel - one thread, all colors!
Coloreel always offers the right thread color exactly when you need it!
The Coloreel system enables all colors that are required for the embroidery design with just one thread and one needle!
A white embroidery thread is colored during embroidery and according to the specifications of your design using a high-quality printing process in the Coloreel Unit and then fed to the embroidery machine.
With Coloreel, every specific color and every color gradient can be created precisely and efficiently according to customer requirements.
ZSK STICKMASCHINEN is now a sales partner of Coloreel - the revolutionary technology for the right embroidery thread color on demand!
ZSK STICKMASCHINEN is pleased to be able to offer Coloreel for ZSK embroidery machines and machines from other suppliers.
We think that the Coloreel of machine embroidery opens up new avenues in creative design and will sustainably expand the technical possibilities of embroidery.

The advantages of Coloreel
There are unlimited colors available for design to use on any material. Create unique designs with gradients, texturing or stripe patterns on the embroidery machine.
With Coloreel many designs can be embroidered faster, better and cheaper.
With Coloreel you can save time and thread. Changing the color and cutting the thread is often unnecessary.
Embroidery with Coloreel creates a unique look and feel. The embroidery is more even and the surface is smoother without unnecessary lockstitches. The yarn is durable and colorfast up to 95 degrees. Your customers will be able to enjoy brilliant colors even after countless washes.
Minimal use of Resources
Due to the stitch-precise coloring of the recycling thread, only the thread color that is actually needed is produced. The Coloreel dyeing process ensures that the necessary chemicals are used to a minimum.
New creative design options with Coloreel
Add shading, gradients, and textures to your new and existing embroidery designs using Coloreel's unique technique.
Coloreel makes every color of the embroidery thread possible thanks to the CMYK process, which is otherwise only used in printing. Coloreel achieves a maximum dyeing speed of 200mm embroidery thread per second!
The system actively supports you in color selection and provides color libraries for administration.
