Link (connecting) function for professional tasks

Embroidery designs can be sent from the computer to be embroidered on multiple embroidery machines. You can use the computer to select which embroidery machine should embroider which embroidery pattern and the relevant data can be transferred to the machine. During the embroidery process, a status monitoring function for each machine on the computer is possible. (The PR-1000 and PR-650 Ver. 2 of Brother can use the link function.)

Thanks to the new design template function, you can combine templates with names as desired.

Insert names
