GS1501 Multi-head Embroidery Machine Options

The GS1501-2, GS1501-4 and GS1501-6 multi-head embroidery machines maximize your production without much of the typical downtime experienced with traditional multi-head machines. With a GS1501 networked modular system, you can interconnect all of your GS1501 machines to create the ultimate modular production system with the least amount of space!
Unlike conventional multi-head embroidery machines, the GS1501-2, GS1501-4 or GS1501-6 embroidery systems allows for caps, bags, shirts and jackets to be done at the same time! Or, run the same design on all machines for larger jobs to maximize production. Better yet, if one machine does have a thread break, the other machines
keep working as they run independent of one another so your entire job won’t stop.

GS1501 embroidery machines are so dependable that they’ve run for over a half million stitches without a thread break. Combine that dependability with the flexibility and production capabilities of our multi-head systems, and your shop is well on its way to success. Maximize production, flexibility and profits with our compact and affordable GS1501-2, GS1501-4 or GS1501-6 today!

Why a networked multi-head vs conventional multi-head embroidery machine?
• Increased profits
• More speed
• More production
• More flexibility
• Less headaches

Greater speed

  • 1,200 stitches per minute* per head vs. 1,000 stitches per minute per head on a conventional multi-head
  • 950 stitch per minute average vs. 600-700 stitch per minute average on a conventional multi-head
  • Produce about one-third more with networked single-heads that an equivalent conventional multi-head machine

Greater production

  • Independently operating heads vs. single-operation multi-head machines
  • Only one network head stops for attention while others continue to stitch vs. entire machine stopping for attention

Greater flexibility

  • Networked GS1501’s can run different jobs simultaneously
  • Run networked GS1501’s in different modes (flat, cap, tubular) simultaneously
  • Combine GS1501’s in groups of varying sizes to fit your production needs
  • Easy to move, ship and configure to best fit your floor space
  • Link up to 256 heads and choose the best configuration for your business or job
  • Add heads to your system in quantities that suit the growth of your business
  • Maximum speed

Conventional six-head machine: Based on an eight hour shift, there are 480 minutes of production. 480 divided by 31 minutes to produce 12 garments = 15.48 possible runs in the day. Round down to 15 for accurate garment count. 15 x 12 garments per run = 180 garments in the shift.

Three GS1501 networked machines: Take the same 480 divided by 30 minutes (less downtime) to produce 12 garments = 16 possible runs in the day. 16 X 12 garments per run = 192. 12 additional garments each day! Less downtime increases production.

Based on a value of $35 per garment, that is an increase in revenue of $420 per day, $2,100 per week and $8,400 per month (work smarter, not harder)!

The embroidery system can fit your floor space and budget

The GS1501-2, GS1501-4, GS1501-6, can be installed in any quantity or layout to provide the embroidery output you want and fit in the space you have available. The machine will fit through a standard door opening and can be placed away from other machines or the computer if desired. Flexibility and versatility apply to the machine’s size and capabilities.

Only one machine stops for hoop change, thread break, or job change

Conventional multi-head machines must stop if operator attention is needed. Loss of stitching time is dramatically reduced using Multiple GS1501 machines, since each machine operates independently.

Select the number of heads you need to do a job efficiently

Use the remaining heads for other jobs. Eliminate the wasted production capacity of unused heads …a typical problem with conventional multi-head machines. Multiple single-head machines are faster because you start the first garment on one head; as it stitches, you hoop the next garment for the next head and so on. By the time you have started several garments, the first garment is done and you load another on that first machine. Every machine can be stitching a different design on different style garments or they can all be the same for maximum production.

Warranty

Each GS1501 includes a standard five-year warranty. It’s the best commercial embroidery machine in the business.

Five year warranty

Have you been dealing with increased production needs but didn’t have the capital or space to invest in large and expensive conventional multi-head machines? The GS1501 networked solution is the perfect fit to expand as you need to and without wasting heads when the production demand slows down a bit. Contact us today!

Case study

Tory B. incorporated embroidery into an existing canvas making business. After assessing his business needs, he determined a three-head modular system would produce the same amount as a 6-head multi-head machine. Tory recently worked with a promotional products company to help them set-up their new six networked single-head system. They did 50 caps in approximately 2.5 hours (750,000 stitches). Tory estimates that with hooping and other down time, it would have taken more than four hours to stitch the designs on a six-head machine.*

Single-head systems solve the growth problem. Tory adds “If you are in the embroidery business, you will grow! The only way to grow responsibly and efficiently is with networked single-head machines. It just makes sense. If I have one head down for hooping, a thread break or maintenance, the rest are stitching away.”

*Design contained 15,000 stitches; at 650 spm (multi-head average) it would require 3.46 hours to stitch the caps, another 50 minutes of hooping plus any down time for thread breaks.

I love the fact that I can mix up my embroidery needs daily with modularity depending on the job. I have the option to go with multiple configurations. I’ll set up two GS1501 machines running with shirts and the other with hats, all networking together embroidering different logos at the same time.
