We are looking in to getting one. We currently have a 4-head and 6-head SWF machines. From our expierence with these and the cxompany I believe the dual function ones are top notch.

I have not see one in person just the lit and info from their website and mailers. I would say it might be best to see one in action at a show or showroom.

Thanks Richard,
I actually trialled the first one in the UK for a two week period. The machine stitched really well but there were a few issues with the software, they flew some guys in from Korea and got it sorted. I was just wondering if any Forum members have any experience with them as a business partner has now ordered one. We use SWF to embroiderer small Teddy Bear jumpers and Hoodies (single head machines) and they do an excellent job. The Dual function in my mind lends itself to embroidery on demand, in a retail environment where you could do say Teddy Bears and baseball caps at the same time. Any feedback on the machine or embroidery on demand most appreciated. We have done it for the last four years in Benidorm Spain and Blackpool UK and I always love to hear from others who do similar.

I bought one in September 2007, 4 Head SWF Dual Function Machine and I love it. I have been in this business over 14 years and have had e few different machines but not like Dual Function It is very easy to use, You can embroider caps or different design on one side, t-shirts on the other side, very easy to change from caps to flat (just slide in). has two monitors that can be used individual designs You can embroider two by two, reads from USB, FLOPPY, etc..
anyone interested in this machine You can contact me. I maybe retiring very soon, Family issues.

sorry if it's a little bit off topic.. i've just received an invitation to attend SWF new machine exhibition, it says they launch their new 56 heads jumbo machine and it is the first embroidery machine that has 1500 RPM.. is it the same as 1500 stitches per minute?
YES...it's called the Dream Machine...it was running at Long Beach ISS...it wasn't 56 heads....they actually have a 2200 rpm machine...CRAZY !
