Tajima TMCP-VF (Multi Head Embroidery Machine)

Tajima TMCP-VF (Multi Head Embroidery Machine) - 9 Colour / 12 Head


Financing Options

Tajima's TMCP series is Tajima's large production flat type model offered in machine configurations up to 20 heads. The TMCP series is a production workhorse designed to operate in high production factory environments. This flat type machine has options available such as a beam sensor, boring device, seed bead and sequins. The integrated smart bobbin changer replaces the bobbins on all heads in only 5 seconds. 


The TMCP-VF SERIES has more improved stitching stability and embroidery quality than the TFGN-II series. To enhance the machine foundation, the output of the frame drive motors is improved and an energy efficient AC servo motor is adopted as a main shaft motor. Also, a reinforced sash; which was introduced for large machines, has been adopted to all TMCP-VF series.

To accommodate loosely twisted or thick thread that has been difficult to use for embroidery, Tajima has designed the FS Mode function to provide stitch stability and improved embroidery quality. When using the FS Mode the RPM is restricted. A decrease in production can be kept to a minimum by setting the FS mode to individual needles instead of all needles on the TMCP.

The FS mode is standardly equipped on all models. The FS Mode dramatically improves the quality of embroidery done with thick or soft-twisted thread that was unsuitable for embroidery machines in the past.

FS Mode


Various operation switches and multi-color LEDs are located on the each tension base. Since all of the main functions of the operation panel can be manipulated in front of each head, the working efficiency of operators has been improved. Commonly used functions may be assigned to the custom switches.

Direct Command Switches


A digitally controlled presser foot that responds to changes in fabric thickness stitch by stitch. Accurate and beautiful embroidery from thin to 3D embroidery with no settings required. The machine reduces the fluttering of the fabric at the start of sewing and during thread trimming, minimizing problems such as skip stitch and thread trimming failure.



  • What is “ fluttering”?
    “Fluttering” occurs when the material is lifted up during embroidery which causes skipped stitches, miss-trimming, and reduced quality stitching.

  • The DCP can be adjusted randomly according to the material thickness on the operation panel. It simplifies the mechanical process that was previously required and time consuming.

    ※DCP stands for Digitally Controlled Presser foot.



    The large-scale 12.1-inch operation panel is equipped with various convenient icons and multilingual displays. A touch panel allows more intuitive operation.

    Greatly increased memory capacity!

    • Maximum Design Storage - 200 designs
    • Maximum Stitch Count - 2 million


  • Touchscreen


An AC servo motor is adopted for the main shaft and the frame drive as with Tajima's flagship models. Optimized drivers, motors, and encoders are incorporated into a closed circuit controlled by Tajima technology. Extremely high positioning precision has been achieved while maintaining high speed of 1000 RPM. Tajima's motor drive algorithm boosts the quality of embroidery to new levels of excellence.

  • Safety Beam Sensor
    Safety Beam Sensor

    A beam surrounds the work area while machine is in motion. If the plane is broken the machine will immediately stop.

  • Slim Cylinder
    Slim Cylinder

    Slim Cylinder makes it possible to embroider on smaller products such as socks, gloves, and pockets. 

  • Thread Locking
    Thread Locking

    The Thread Locking System secures the thread after a trim to help prevent the thread pulling out during needle startup.

  • Trimmed Needle Plate
    Trimmed Needle Plate

    A shorter distance between the needle hole and the edge of the trimmed needle plate offers an increased embroidery area on many items.

  • Thread Break Detection
    Thread Break Detection

    A sensor monitors the thread movement while stitching.  If the tension on the upper or lower thread is broken the machine stops stitching relaying an error on the controller.

  • LED Needle Base Light
    LED Needle Base Light

    The LED Needle Base Light illuminates the needle area and provides the operator a better view of the item being embroidered.
