Embroidery Machine


A game-changer for any serious embroiderer

The 15-needle HCU-Series is the company’s flagship, heavy-duty commercial single-head embroidery machine. This is immediately evident in the machine’s key specifications: a very large 23.5″ x 15.7″ sewing field and a max sewing speed of 1500spm. The HCU2 delivers impressive capability for the commercial embroiderer.  In its latest form, HappyJapan introduces a revolutionary, keeper-less, ultra-low-profile sewing arm that greatly improves access to normally difficult areas like pockets, sleeves, and cuffs.  As an industry leader, the HCU2 possesses many design innovations that make it a real standout in HappyJapan’s single-head lineup.


Check out these great benefits

Keeper (picker)-less Sewing Arm


HCU2’s keeper-less (picker-less) sewing arm arm design gives it the slimmest profile in the industry, which makes embroidery easier in tight tubular areas, such as sleeve cuffs, pockets, wristbands, gloves, and more. It also increases the usable sewing area on finished ballcaps. 


Easy Touchscreen Control Panel


This is the same, intuitive interface as all other models from HappyJapan, makign it easy to upgrade to the HCU2, or operate a mix of models with minimal training.

Digital Tension


Take the guesswork out of the most important setting in embroidery for producing quality stitches over a wide variety of items. Instead of traditional knobs and springs, tension can be easily set with the press of a button and digital precision. The machine can even remember your custom tension settings, removing a lot of guesswork and simplifying operation.

Automatic Fabric Thickness Detection System


This system determines material thickness with the use of the digital presser foot system, compensating automatically on-the-fly without user intervention. This reduces operator workload when dealing with complex embroidery workloads with varying garment types.

For The Professional

HCU2’s design and built-in technologies are a game-changer for any serious embroiderer. Its advanced servo drive system and direct needle bar drive system allow precise stitching on challenging materials, even at very high, sustained speeds. HCU2’s digital tension system and automatic fabric thickness detection system help further streamline the embroidery process, making it easier to achieve quality results on unknown or difficult materials.  The machine’s unrestricted sewing arm invites you to take on very large items such as suitcases, large totes, and golf bags, while its super-slim, keeper-less sewing arm makes embroidery possible on some of the hard-to-access, yet in-demand placements, such as sleeve cuffs, koozies, pockets, and gloves.
