The balanced cam drive units integrated into the machine pillars on the needle and shuttle sides guarantee smoothest possible operation and precise kinetic processes at maximum speeds. The second main shaft and the additional motor for the adjustable thread guide are perfectly integrated into the system.

Pinpoint accuracy – the new fabric presser Because it is directly driven by dynamically responsive servo motors, the new fabric presser works quietly, dependably and precisely. The ideal settings for the best embroidery quality can be saved directly to the design.

Guaranteed precision – the adjustable carriage width A precisely adjusted carriage width is a must for best quality. This parameter can now be set within seconds only and is reproducible at any time by means of the scale of 0.1 mm graduation.

Revolutionarily simple – flexible cardan shaft Due to an entirely new and maintenance-free drive unit on the shuttle side, combined with a high-precision linear guide, a previously unattained level of reliability is achieved. What is more, it enables maximum accessibility when changing materials.

Perfect guidance for your shuttles – the new shuttle box with patented gliding surfaces High-quality metal gliding surfaces across the entire guide guarantee the longevity of your shuttle and shuttle guides under all operating and ambient conditions.

Perfect handling – the unique shuttle changing position Reduce your setting-up time when changing shuttles. When the rear carriage is opened, the shuttles move automatically into the easiest accessible position for changing.

What really counts

All specifications and targets are of no importance if the solutions produced do not perform in reality. Therefore, our new generation of machines has been thoroughly field tested. The first Epoca 6 machines have been in use in industrial production world-wide since June 2010. The results are extremely positive and already being backed-up by subsequent orders. That motivates us even more to follow our innovative path as rigorously as possible. But let us give the last word to our first Epoca 6 pro customers:

Christof Leemann, owner of Union AG (Switzerland): „Complex designs are now embroidered exclusively on Epoca 6 pro.“

Timmy Kokar, owner of Mastex (Thailand): „The new setting possibilities of the Epoca 6 pro are essential to achieve best quality. Thanks to the handy and easy adjustment possibilities it has become child‘s play to optimize the machine settings.“

Karl Benzer, owner of Karl Benzer GmbH (Austria): „The Epoca 6 pro can embroider a greater variety of materials with best quality.“

We would like to thank our first Epoca 6 pro customers for their trust and permission to publish their comments. Special thanks to Albert Bösch GmbH (Austria) and Forster Rohner AG (Switzerland) for providing the embroidery designs.
