Introducing the new MB-4

Janome introduces the new MB-4, a four-needle single-head embroidery machine. With its ease of operation, compactness, and weighing in at only 20.5 kg, the Janome MB-4 is destined to satisfy the demands of household heavy-users and small business alike. Its size allows it to fit in anywhere; be it at home or in a kiosk style shop, and its weight allows for greater portability. It's possible for it to be carried by one person! Janome has applied its experience in the household market to make the MB-4 the most user-friendly machine around. The MB-4 is packed with many advanced and unique features including an optional RCS (remote computer screen; optional) that can be used as a master controller over multiple machines, coded thread guides, an 8 spool thread stand, and a built in 3MB memory which can store up to 100 files to streamline your production. It allows for quick and easy hoop changes, and is even Tajima hoop compatible.

Key Features:
  • RCS (Remote Computer Screen).
  • Create sophisticated embroidery layouts without software. Designs are easily imported, edited, and moved to the desired position using the controls on the backlit LCD touch screen.
  • USB port and ATA PC card slot. Bring in designs using a USB memory key, flash memory card, or from a PC Design Card (requires RCS).
  • Access designs stored on the MB-4 with the onboard sub-control panel (requires either RCS or Digitizer MB for multi-needle software to store the designs).
  • Auto thread cutter trims top and bobbin thread at the end of each needle during a stitch out or at the push of a button.
  • The motion of the upper and shuttle race shafts are now smoother and quieter thanks to ball bearings.
  • Auto return for thread breaks. MB-4 machine automatically returns a few stitches prior to the point where the thread break occurred.
  • Dual linear motion guide make the hoop control smoother and accurate.
  • 50 embroidery designs and 10 monogram fonts included in RCS.
  • Choose from three hoop sizes, Hoop M1 (240 x 200), Hoop M2 (126 x 110) and Hoop M3 (50 x 50).
  • Compatible with "Digitizer MB for multi-needle" embroidery software, which can be connected up to 3 MB-4 machines via USB cables.
