The multifunctional SGVA embroidery machine from ZSK Stickmaschinen GmbH is a special machine that has three different technical embroidery heads for different embroidery processes.
The F-head is a standard embroidery head with nine needles. This head has the technique of double lockstitch embroidery and also enables embroidery applications such as sequin appliqué, drilling embroidery, double roller cord embroidery, as well as loop, cap and ribbon embroidery.
The embroidery processes of the K-head, the moss and chain stitch, are single-thread systems with a hook needle that allows the formation of loops.
The embroidery process of the W-head is based on a three-thread system with upper and lower thread and a laying medium. The laying process is divided into three main technologies: Tailored Fiber Placement (TFP), Tailored Wire Placement (TWP) and Tailored Tube Placement (TTP).
