The machine may also incorporate pearls, beads, or quills on the same piece, and at Alibaba.com, single head, multiple and commercial Ricoma embroidery machines are available at budget-friendly prices.
Types of Ricoma embroidery machines
The Ricoma shop has single and multiple head machines. A Ricoma single head embroidery machine has one head with between 1 and 15 needles working simultaneously on the fabric. A single head entry-level machine has up to 10 needles. Though the machine has a small embroidery field which is less than 16 by 18 inches, it is ideal for training on before graduating to multiple heads. In contrast, a single head commercial machine has up to 15 needles designed to work on a larger field and tough materials such as denim and leather. Besides being relatively fast, this modern machine has a cap attachment for the Ricoma hat hoop.
Multiple heads Ricoma machines, on the other hand, have 2 to 6 heads. The industrial-level 2 head Ricoma embroidery machine revolves at around 1000 times per minute to work on two pieces at the same time. This averages 650 to 700 stitches per minute. Likewise, a Ricoma 4 head embroidery machine is fast to rotate at almost 1200 RPMs.
Can a Ricoma embroidery machine be computerized?
Most Ricoma 6 head embroidery machines for commercial use are computerized. With the help of a small HD LCD touch screen, you can upload designs from embroidery design software for the machine to stitch on the garment without you controlling it. And thanks to great memory, the Ricoma embroidery machine can store up to 50 million stitches, saving uploading time.
