HappyJapan’s 12-needle Voyager is the most capable compact single-head machine in the industry.  Read on to learn more! 

HCS3-1201 Voyager


HappyJapan’s 12-needle Voyager (3rd Generation) is the most capable compact machine on the market. Within its efficient 11″ x 17″ footprint lies the heart of a true commercial machine, with an oversize sewing motor, heavy-duty drive shafts, belts, and bearings that enable sustained, high-speed production while demonstrating extreme durability. Its large tubular sewing field, true wide-field cap sewing ability, and unrestricted sewing arm allow sewing flexibility unmatched in its class. HappyJapan’s HCS3 is the latest generation Voyager, bringing further capabilities with a redesigned sewing head that’s more robust, easier to thread, and has a built-in laser marker. Other improvements include an ultra-slim profile sewing arm, redesigned thread stand that accommodates more types of thread cones, increased memory capacity, and refined cut cycle for cleaner embroidery.

12-Needle Voyager: A Proven Performer

When the original 12-needle Voyager was released over 20 years ago, it started a revolution in compact, yet truly commercial embroidery machines.  As HappyJapan had up to that point specialized in full-size, heavy-duty industrial embroidery machines, the company naturally transferred that design ethic to the original Voyager.  2 decades of continuous improvements later, the newest version – the HCS3 – inherits that proven heavy-duty drive system, which continues to impress owners with its ability to maintain high production speeds, hour upon hour, year upon year – without tiring.  There is simply no machine in Voyager’s size class (under 100 lbs) that can begin to match this machine’s continuous output and profit potential, and it will even outrun many larger, full-sized single-heads on that metric.  Voyager is simply the most capable compact machine on the market.

Take your business to the next level


The HCS3-1201 Voyager punches far above its weight. Its oversized motor and heavy-duty drive system enable it to accomplish what almost no other machine in its class can. Imagine having an employee working multiple shifts for months or even years on end. The HCS3 produces embroidery at higher sustained sewing speeds, for longer periods of time. Since the machine’s debut in 2003, our service department has never had to replace a main motor due to wear. While Voyager’s maximum sewing speed is similar to others in its class (1000spm), its heavy-duty drive system allows it to run at the higher range of these speeds for much longer than its competition. This gives you the potential for a greater profitability.
