Der weite Freiarm der ZSK STICKMASCHINEN

Wide tubular arm

The SPRINT Classic has the wide tubular arm of ZSK, which was used on all tubular embroidery machines until 2014.

The tubular arm, open to the picker, was closed with a guard. This prevents textiles from getting caught in the picker while embroidering and avoids waste production.

Standard Features

Automatic colour change
If the embroidery design contains different colours, the machine automatically switches to the needle with the correct thread colour during embroidery.
Thread break detection
With the help of the automatic thread break detection, a ZSK embroidery machine stops automatically if the upper or lower thread breaks or the thread runs out in the bobbin.
Automatic thread tension adjustment
The automatic adjustment of the thread tension ensures a constantly optimized transport of the thread to the needle and thus enables high-quality embroideries.
Height adjustable presser foot
Adjust the presser foot to the height of the embroidery material in order to achieve better embroidery quality.
The T8 control unit can be operated in 14 different languages: English, German, Italian, French, Russian, Portuguese, Dutch, Spanish, Turkish, Polish, Hungarian, Greek, Bulgarian and Romanian.
Large integrated memory
The T8 control unit offers integrated memory for approx. 80 million stitches and thus provides space for a large number of your frequently used embroidery designs.
Barcode reader
With a barcode reader connected to the T8 via USB, barcode patterns can be loaded from a connected network and various control commands can be executed.
A slot for the standard RJ-45 network connector and three USB ports for other devices are available for communication, memory expansion and other functionalities.
The T8 works with Microsoft's network protocols and thus enables simple communication with connected company networks, digital workflow solutions or the ZSK operating data information system MY.ZSK.
This machine was designed and constructed in Germany for the high requirements of the embroidery industry. Our Sprint Classic models are built in the Czech Republic.
