Wilcom Launches EmbroideryConnect WiFi Device

January 10, 2020

Wilcom Intl., Sydney, recently launched of its new EmbroideryConnect WiFi Device.

After 40 years of developing its embroidery and multi-decoration design software, EmbroideryStudio, Wilcom felt it was time to deliver the perfect hardware device to bridge that important gap between the embroidery software and embroidery machine, according to the company.

EmbroideryConnect is a small assistant that enables embroiderers to wirelessly manage and transfer embroidery designs between EmbroideryHub and their embroidery machines. This new device enables designs to be selected via a standard barcode reader and loaded into the device, ensuring that the right design is used every time. The device always remains connected to the embroidery machine, eliminating the costly wear and tear of expensive embroidery machine controllers and computers that is widely experienced daily by most companies.

Other benefits include encryption and security to keep designs and intellectual property safe, and powerful LED lights act as a visual notification so that machine operators can easily manage their designs.

“EmbroideryConnect was designed to be used by all kinds of embroidery businesses,” says Richard Wienburg, Wilcom chief marketing officer. “Whether they are smaller single-head embroiderers or larger factories with many multi-head machines, we wanted to create a solution that is plug in play, simple to use and for a low-cost. All that is required along with the EmbroideryHub software, is a simple WiFi network, already found in most businesses and homes. Embroiderers can be up and running in minutes and reaping the benefits of this new technology from day one.” — D.S.
