SPRINT 8 - Die neue Einkopf Stickmaschine


The SPRINT 8 is the newest and probably the most extraordinary model of the popular single-head embroidery machine series SPRINT of ZSK STICKMASCHINEN.


The SPRINT 8 does not correspond to the general idea of an industrial tool and yet it is as robust and precise as all ZSK embroidery machines.

The SPRINT 8 is a spectacular eye-catcher for showrooms, studios and shops. It is the embroidery machine for every situation in which functionality and sophisticated design are not mutually exclusive.


We were able to win over industrial designer Andreas Schulze to create a modern and ergonomic design for the new SPRINT. He perfectly combined functionality and sophistication in the design of the SPRINT 8.

Special Features

SPRINT 8 - 18 Needles and Colours

18 Needles and Colours


18 needles allow efficiency, a new level of creativity and perfection. The engineering of the 18 needle head provides highest embroidery stitch quality. Having 18 needles reduces down times and preparation times for new jobs drastically.

SPRINT 8 - Perfect for 3D Embroidery

3D Embroidery


A reinforced chassis, extra strong springs and modified levers for perfect thread transport are just some of the components that enable perfect embroidery quality and heights of up to 8 mm in 3D embroidery.

SPRINT 8 - raise your flexibility with the new Quick Change System of the SPRINT 8



The SPRINT 8's new Quick Change System enables  the quick and easy change between different applications such as cap, tubular applications or border frame. 

SPRINT 8 - Application variety with ZSK's slimmest tubular arm.

Application variety


The SPRINT 8 comes with the slimmest tubular arm in the industry. Combined with ZSK's shirt pocket and shoe frames it opens new fields of application.

SPRINT 8 - Networking



ZSK embroidery machines functionally support networking in your company and can thus be optimally integrated into your workflow solution.

The Sprint 8 is equipped with new longer Take-Up Lever for smooth thread feeding.

New Take-Up Lever


The machine is equipped with our new extended thread take-up lever which uses a higher amount of thread in the embroidery process. The benefit is a softer appearance in the embroidery pattern.

SPRINT 8 offers an improved Thread Tension

Improved Thread Tension


The clamping of the thread tension ensures a buttery smooth passage of the thread. The eyelets of the tension bar are aligned for an optimal thread run.

SPRINT 8 offers the Quick Colour Change System

Quick Colour Change


Save yourself the trouble of sorting colours into needles for the optimal, time-saving colour change. ZSK colour change is a standard feature of SPRINT 8.

SPRINT 8 - now operating with an reduced noise level

Reduced Noise Level


Small changes to the mechanics have a big impact: The noise level of SPRINT 8 during operation is considerably lower compared to other embroidery machines

Standard Features

Slim Tubular Arm
ZSK STICKMASCHINEN has developed the slimmest tubular arm for industrial embroidery machines. Many areas and products can now be processed easily and without complications that were previously difficult or impossible to access for 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.
Height Adjustable Presser Foot
Adjust the presser foot to the height of the embroidery material in order to achieve better embroidery quality.
T8 Control Center
The intuitively and logically structured control and communication center for ZSK embroidery machines. The T8 interface can be displayed and operated in 14 different languages.
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.
Safety Feature Light Barrier
A light barrier installed in front of the working area ensures greater work safety during embroidery. As soon as the operator enters this light barrier, the embroidery process is automatically stopped.
This machine was designed, constructed and manufactured in Germany for the requirements of the embroidery industry.
