Key Features

Extra large boobin


Extra large bobbin is 1.4 times larger than a regular bobbin.

Remote Computer Screen


The Remote Computer Screen (RCS) gives you total set-up and editing control with up to 65,536 colors. One RCS can power many machines, saving the cost of additional controllers.

LED Light


The LED Light offers precise lighting for outstanding results.

Automatic Thread Cutter


The MB-4S automatically cuts jump threads – even between letters – saving you time and hassle.

Dedicated Bobbin Winding Motor


This feature – not found on professional machines – winds new bobbins even while the machine is stitching a design.

On Board Control


The MB-4S includes an on-board sub-control device. You can use it without the controller! The MB-4S also includes 3 MB of memory which can store up to 1,500,000 stitches or up to 100 designs.

Link Directly To A PC


The on-board USB slave port connects directly to your PC with Digitizer MB software, sold separately.

Three included MB-4S hoops snap in and out with ease. They provide the embroidery areas most often used in the industry. The MB-4S is also fully compatible with industry-standard Tajima hoops.
