RACER | Multi-Head Embroidery Machines

Welcome to the Future of Embroidery

With the embroidery machines of the new series RACER, we set again the world standard for tubular embroidery machines. Developed and manufactured in Germany, this machine concept guarantees the shortest return of investment thanks to the highest embroidery speed. The multi-head embroidery machines pursuade with their extreme precision, flexible operating modes and proven long life time.


All Operating Modes Ready for Use

No matter whether you need tubular or cap operation, flat- or border frame embroidery, all operating modes are available. The conversion between the different applications is quick and easy.


We set New Standards

The series is equipped with the thinnest tubular of the embroidery industry. It enables jobs that could not previously be processed, e.g. shirt pockets or shoes. The machines embroider without "picker" on the front. Your advantage: textiles can no longer get caught in the hook and thus remain undamaged. Rely on quality production with the smallest clearances on the free arm.




The RACER Classic offers embroidery machines with 4 and 6 embroidery heads. Each embroidery head has 12 needles.


The RACER CLASSIC is only available in combination with 400mm head distance and 500mm embroidery field depth.
