Brother PR680W 6-Needle Embroidery Machine Features in Depth


6 needles with customisable settings

You can individually customise each of the PR680W’s six needles for speed, colour lock and now, the disengagement of the needle threader – useful when using a thin needle!


Thread tension range expansion

We’ve expanded the thread tension range on the PR680W creating a wider range of tension settings. It’s now easier to embroider on difficult fabrics with the correct tension – without distorting or puckering the fabric!


6-needle auto-threading

Make threading simple! With just the touch of a button you can automatically thread each needle in a matter of seconds. For added efficiency this can even be done without a design on the screen!


Crosshair LED pointer for perfect needle positioning

See exactly where your needles will drop and ensure perfect pattern placement, so you can position jobs faster and more accurately. Nine points can be set: centre, four corners and four middles.


Customisable lighting system

See your work clearly with the four built-in LED lights. With five brightness settings you can find your ideal lighting level. The bight LEDs will illuminate your work with virtually no shadows.


Industrial level acceleration

Increase your productivity and efficiency with industry-leading high-speed acceleration! Reach up to 1,000 stitches per minute in seven seconds. Projects will be completed faster, with minimal noise.
