Nothing But The Best!

The HCD3e-1501 is the newest and best version of the long-running HCD-series of full-sized commercial single-head embroidery machines from HappyJapan. Over an almost 20-year development span, the HCD-series has become the go-to single-head for thousands of embroidery shops of all sizes.

With the included 17.25” x 16.5” hoops, you can take advantage of HCD3e’s very large continuous sewing field to accommodate big projects, such as extra large jackets, large-quantity patch orders, tapestries, flags, and more.

The HCD3e-1501 gives the embroiderer some impressive capabilities when embroidering on ball caps.  Its expansive cap sewing field offers great flexibility: at 80mm (3.1in) high x 360mm (14.1in) wide, several logo/design placements can be embroidered in a single run (such as the front and both sides), while being able to charge separately for each placement.  And with a true heavy-duty drive system, HCD3e easily handles challenging projects such as tall, trucker-style ball caps, bucket hats, stretchy “flexfit” hats and more.
