NEW! ZSK SPRINT 8 - 18 Needles

Embroidery solutions Made in Germany

The SPRINT 8 thanks its design to the German industrial design specialist Andreas Schulze. The modern and ergonomic design aims to combine functionality and sophistication. The SPRINT 8 is an eye catcher for your showroom, shop, living room and factory.

A key requirement for the new SPRINT 8 model was robustness of the body and an improved ability for 3D puffy embroidery.

The SPRINT Series includes all features of an industrial embroidery machine that makes it the most advanced compact embroidery machine in the market.

The SPRINT was the first machine at ZSK to be equipped with the slimmest tubular arm in the industry. Due to this feature, the machine is capable to embroider shirt and trousers pockets. The slim tubular arm sets the benchmark for the industry.

Operation without a picker avoids textiles being damaged from the picker pulling fabric into the hook.

The machine is available for tubular, cap and border frame embroidery with a maximum speed of 1200 stitches per minute. The strength of the industrial design and the precision of the components used allow the SPRINT to be your ideal solution for embroidery on shoes, leather products or even car mats.

Equipped with an upgraded version of the T8-2 controller, the SPRINT 8 is ideal for workflow solutions.

18 Needles and Colours

18 needles allow efficiency, a new level of creativity and perfection. The engineering of the 18 needle head provides highest embroidery stitch quality. Having 18 needles reduces down times and preparation times for new jobs drastically.

3D Embroidery

A reinforced chassis, extra strong springs and modified levers for perfect thread transport are just some of the components that enable perfect embroidery quality and heights of up to 8 mm in 3D embroidery.


The SPRINT 8's new Quick Change System enables  the quick and easy change between different applications such as cap, tubular applications or border frame. 

Application variety

The SPRINT 8 comes with the slimmest tubular arm in the industry. Combined with ZSK's shirt pocket and shoe frames it opens new fields of application.


ZSK embroidery machines functionally support networking in your company and can thus be optimally integrated into your workflow solution.

New Take-Up Lever

The machine is equipped with our new extended thread take-up lever which uses a higher amount of thread in the embroidery process. The benefit is a softer appearance in the embroidery pattern.

Improved Thread Tension

The clamping of the thread tension has an enlarged friction surface, which ensures a buttery smooth passage of the thread. The eyelets of the tension bar are aligned for an optimal thread run.

Quick Colour Change

Save yourself the trouble of sorting colours into needles for the optimal, time-saving colour change. ZSK colour change is a standard feature of SPRINT 8.

Reduced Noise Level

Small changes to the mechanics have a big impact: The noise level of SPRINT 8 during operation is considerably lower compared to other embroidery machines

Slim Tubular Arm

ZSK STICKMASCHINEN has developed the slimmest tubular arm for industrial embroidery machines. Many areas and products can now be processed easily and without complications that were previously difficult or impossible to access for embroidery.

Barcode Reader

With a barcode reader connected to the T8 via USB, barcode patterns can be loaded from a connected network and various control commands can be executed.

Thread Break Detection

With the help of the automatic thread break detection, a ZSK embroidery machine stops automatically if the upper or lower thread breaks or the thread runs out in the bobbin.


A slot for the standard RJ-45 network connector and three USB ports for other devices are available for communication, memory expansion and other functionalities.

Height Adjustable Presser Foot

Adjust the presser foot to the height of the embroidery material in order to achieve better embroidery quality.


The T8 works with Microsoft's network protocols and thus enables simple communication with connected company networks, digital workflow solutions or the ZSK operating data information system MY.ZSK.

Automatic Thread Tensioner

The automatic adjustment of the thread tension ensures a constantly optimized transport of the thread to the needle and thus enables high-quality embroidery.

Safety Feature Light Barrier (Optional)

A light barrier installed in front of the working area ensures greater work safety during embroidery. As soon as the operator enters this light barrier, the embroidery process is automatically stopped.

T8 Control Center

The intuitively and logically structured control and communication center for ZSK embroidery machines. The T8 interface can be displayed and operated in 14 different languages.


This machine was designed, constructed and manufactured in Germany for the requirements of the embroidery industry.


The T8 control unit offers integrated memory for approx. 80 million stitches and thus provides space for a large number of your frequently used embroidery designs.
