RPS Reciprocator Protection System

Reciprocator Protection System

With the patented RPS Reciprocator Protection System you never have to worry about your business being down because you struck a hoop. With other embroidery machines, striking a hoop can easily break the plastic reciprocator, making your machine unusable until repaired, possibly for days if you cannot do the repair yourself.

This revolutionary unbreakable reciprocator is metal, not plastic, and therefore cannot be broken by simply striking a hoop with the needle. Instead of breaking an expensive part of your machine, a small plastic post will break off, which can easily and inexpensively be replaced. When this post is broken, it puts that one needle out of order, instead of the entire sewing head. By reprogramming the color to another needle (and re-hooping the garment so you don't strike the hoop again) you are back in business! You can then repair the RPS system at your convenience.

Watch this video to see how fast and easy it is to get back up and running after a hard hoop strike that would put other embroidery machines down for repairs.

What Our Customers Say

Big shout out to the Highlands tech team on the delivery and on-site training of my HM/E-1501C. He went through all the ins and outs on my machine, did a tension stitch out test, and even helped me stitch out a hat. This is an upgrade in service from what is encountered with a competitor. Great job!
