The quality of the machine can be seen from the durability and speed of the embroidery machine. The speed of the embroidery machine affects the production of embroidery, whether the embroidery will be better or even no better. Stable speed according to the precision requirements of embroidery determines the neat quality of the embroidery. But the high speed allows the thread to break easily and the results of the embroidery become bad. Besides the speed of the machine, durability also affects the quality of the machine. The durability of the machine determines your future business when the machine continues working whether the machine has strong durability or machine will be broken.
