How to choose embroidery machine hoop?
First, you should know your machine brand because the different brand machine requires different hoops. In the current market, most popular brand machines include Toyota, Tajima, Happy, Barudan, SWF and Melco.
Second, measure your hoop arms spacing (the total width). Please see the image below:
The arm spacing according to different brand varies among 36cm, 40cm, 45cm and 50cm. Even in the same brand machine, the width can be different.
For example, SWF embroidery machine has two arms spacing , 40cm and 50cm. You can measure the arm spacing by your own if you don’t know it or check with your machine provider.
Third, how to choose a hoop size? When we talk about a hoop size, we also refer to an embroidery size or embroidery area. Please see the image below:
Often to say, the closer to the design’s size a hoop’s embroidery area is, the better the hoop can help achieve the perfect stitching result. Imaging, if you use a big hoop to make a small design, It will make the whole stitching work puckering and loosing.
Normally, when you upload the digitized design to your machine, your machine will tell you the approximate size automatically.
