Want to find out more? Don’t worry, we’re going to cover everything you need to know in this post – from how the HCS3 works to the key features you need to know about.

We’ll cover


The HappyJapan HCS3

The NEW HCS3 is an upgrade from Happy Japan’s iconic HCS2 model – it compares to no other embroidery machine on the market. It’s the ULTIMATE compact machine, great for beginners and keen embroiders looking to find their feet in the industry. If you already embroider on an industrial scale, these machines can add a compact aspect to your production line – so don’t think they’re JUST for newbies.

The HCS3 is more compact than ANY machine from HappyJapan so it’s the ideal space saver. It might be a new product, but it still has the wireless feature, the same as ALL of the HappyJapan products – portable and no wires to cause a nuisance. Honestly, expanding your business and doing embroidery on an industrial scale has never been easier. 

So, it’s compact and portable, but is it missing any features? Definitely not. It’s got new features from a laser guide as standard, a fast start-up time and a quick embroidery turnaround time (max speed of 1000 stitches per minute). It really does tick the boxes for SMEs.


Compact and Powerful

We start with the KEY feature of the new HCS3 and that’s how compact and smart it is. Although it’s small, it’s certainly mighty. It contains one single embroidery head and it’s perfect for more intricate and complex production lines that produce items in batches. 

Although this is great for a beginner, they’re really useful pieces of equipment to have no matter what stage in your business journey you are at. They’re compact, portable, sturdy and much more lightweight than your ordinary single-head embroidery machine. 

How This Benefits Your Business

If space is your drawback, then this is the perfect machine for the available space you do have because it will fit almost anywhere. It will take up as much space as an end of a table and with its 1,000 stitches per min – it’s speedy, powerful and efficient. Also, you won’t need to worry about the mess it creates either – no space is needed to cater for this.


Direct Down Laser Guide as Standard

The HCS3 has the high-tech feature of a direct down laser guide as standard – a real time saver. These handy built-in devices create a laser beam that appears just in front of the needle; it’s a guide for where the stitch line will fall precisely and accurately. 

How This Benefits Your Business

Not only is this feature high-tech, it’s functional too. Looking for accuracy? That’s what a laser-guide is for. With the use of this, your embroidery will be more accurate than ever and the desired outcome will be straighter with less markings. Happy customers all round!


LCD Colour Touch Screen Panel

We told you no features are compromised! The compact HCS3 has a touch screen panel to make embroidery and business processes even easier. The touch panel is designed to show job progress in real time and give updates to you. Is there an error? It will inform you. Is it finished? It will tell you. It also has a live feed of stitch speed, ensuring accuracy at all times during the production process.

How This Benefits Your Business

The LCD touch screens are simple to use (perfect if you’re not tech-savvy!). This is great if you want more than one member of the team to learn and you’re short on time. Also, this ensures that your production line is consistently accurate and working to its optimum efficiency. 

We understand that safety is a huge factor for any business, so this machine has catered for that. With the handy built-in operating system, any issues that occur will be flagged and you’ll be warned before proceeding.



Wireless Connection

So, it’s compact BUT it’s portable too! The HCS3 has a completely wireless connection. No wires, no cables and perfect to move around depending on the space you have. It’s also great for a variety of workspaces and doesn’t need to be positioned near WiFi or certain cabling – finally, you have the freedom!

How This Benefits Your Business

It’s easy to use and there’s no restrictions with connectivity, so, you have no excuses but to work efficiently and create the great work you hoped for. Having a wireless connection creates fewer hazards and production will be more efficient. If you’re struggling for space, the HCS3 can unpack and have a home anywhere in your workspace.
