Tajima TMEZ-KC (Multi Head Embroidery Machine)

Tajima TMEZ-KC (Multi Head Embroidery Machine) - 2 Head - Stretch


Financing Options

The Tajima TMEZ is the world's first AND ONLY embroidery machine with automatic thread tension adjustment. i-TM (Intelligent Thread Management) technology eliminates the need for manual tension adjustment. The presser foot automatically detects fabric thickness and automatically evaluates the upcoming stitch type, then adjusts according to stitch length, stitch direction, type of stitch, and machine speed. Not only does this provide you with a 20-30% boost in productivity, but it will also allow for finer embroidery detail, less thread breaks on caps, and little to no training of new operators.

Head interval refers to the space from one head to the exact same location on the adjacent head. We use the term "standard" for machines that have a 360mm (14 inch) head interval and the term "stretch" for machines that have a 500mm (19.6 inch) head interval.



    Standard 360 MM Head Interval


    The standard 360mm (14 inch) head interval machines are ideal for producing a standard mix of products that are not limited to caps, shirts, sweatshirts, jacket backs, and infinitely more.



    Stretch 500 MM Head Interval


    The stretch 500 mm (19.6 inch) head interval provides more space between heads which makes it easier to accommodate larger, bulky products such as sweatshirts, jackets, blankets, etc. This setup is ideal for customers who do a larger percentage of these types of items and can accommodate the larger machine size.

Direct Command Switches


Run Stitch Satin Stitch


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

  • 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. 

  • Cap Driver
    Cap Driver

    The cap driver incorporates a lower shaft and a third locking pin to stabilize the cap during embroidery to enhance quality, and run at higher speeds.

  • 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.

  • Steeper Head Tilt
    Steeper Head Tilt

    The Steeper Tilt Head angles the bill of a cap more which allows stitching closer to the bill and increases the embroidery area.
